    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, great at developing skills, great place to learn a skill and grow your resume, or grow with the company.

    Cons

    Understaffing issues negatively affects all parts of their business. However, Walmart has increased their minimum hourly rate with hopes to attract more committed employees, and retain better employees.

    Advice to Management

    At the store level, any time you are called in to over ride an associate following company policy, make sure that you first make it clear to the associate and customer that they were doing their job and that you are making an exception.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Laid back atmosphere on 3rd shift. Safety incentives.

    Cons

    Managers tend to "target" individuals for disciplinary action. Severe cut in hours during January and February. Training tends to take a back seat to daily duties. Nothing WalMart related can be done off the clock (including applying for other WalMart positions and requesting time off).

    Advice to Management

    Endeavor to treat people equally rather than play favorites. Follow-through after meetings with Associates. Set time aside for training so it doesn't pile up.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the closeness of the team, I enjoyed the specifics of the job very much and I respected the management leading the team.

    Cons

    Walmart needs to depart from the "warehouse" design methodology of their office buildings. Lack of windows subtracts a certain level of decorum and ambience.

    Advice to Management

    As it's been so long since I've worked there, anything I could say would be irrelevant and not apropos.

    Pros

    You get holiday pay if you work 8 hours or more on any major federal holiday like 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day etc. Co-workers are great to get along with. Management for the most part is pretty laid back. Store manager is awesome!

    Cons

    I work as a sales associate on the gm side and everyday at 1pm all gm sales associates have to go over to grocery to help zone for a hour. You have enough people grocery to do that for a hour so stop taking people who work on the gm side over to grocery to zone. They play the same music over and over and over. Understaffing is a big problem

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and stop being so cheap!

    Pros

    Walmart is Walmart. In my opinion, the thing that matters most about whether you like your job or not, is the people that you work with directly. One hour lunch is nice. I don't take part in the insurance and other benefits so I can not comment on that stuff. Overall, it's a good job.

    Cons

    It's hot inside the store all year round.

    Advice to Management

    Get better coffee for the break room.
