    Hourly Associate

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Walmart is a company that will take good care of you if you put in initiative and take pride in what you do. There is so much room to grow inside the store and abroad. Walmart promotes its people to higher positions in as little as 6 months to people who deserve it. Again, initiative and pride.

    Cons

    For hourly associates (non-salary), we face hour cuts to meet business need. The cuts don't last very long, but that doesn't make it hurt any less. As with any retailer, the Holiday Season is always a challenge due to high customer volume and demand. Your time is precious and you spend a lot of it at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. Talk to your people. Guide your people. They are on the Front Lines for you.

    Pros

    Ability to transfer from store to store (I went from SC to OK to CO), great scholarship and volunteer benefits

    Cons

    Depending on the area, management can constantly be changing, sometimes promotions feel like set ups for failure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back up your employees, don't expect them to drop everything they have planned to come in and cover a shift, be sincere and show concern but at the same time know how to have a little fun

    Pros

    Benefits and closeness of the company

    Cons

    Difficult to get upper management to have your back when dealing with difficult employees. Difficult to advance, not impossible but difficult. inability to discuss and trust immediate superiors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop making it so difficult for you 1st level managers and they will get more from everyone down. Increase salaries a little more frequently.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a cashier, they start you at a few dollars above minimum and I got a 10 cent raise after six months. They are extremely flexible with hours and scheduling. Great high school and college job.

    Cons

    Just be very specific about your availability. As long as you're specific, you get what you want.
