    Former Employee - Wal Mart Cashier in Quincy, MA

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great starting pay for retail $10.00 and raises twice a year making $11.50 within a year.

    Cons

    Same floor mat used over and over by every cashier no fresh mats for next shift to stand on. My body ached after a shift from standing on one spot on a unless mat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change out mats with each shift and let each mat recover for 24 hours so it offers support for cashiers standing in one spot for their shift.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my co-workers,they made the day go by quick and with a smile on their face, Helps when the customers are unruly in the store.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours weren't there, or when they were long and hard. Things change quickly and sometimes your head could be spinning for days trying to know what to do and not what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is their own. Some managers are good, some are ok, and some are rather iffy. If all Walmarts were the same in Management in a good way, then there would be little to no issues.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Moderately decent health insurance, shifts seem to go quick depending on the day/mood.

    Cons

    FAVORITISM, mixed shifts every week, days off are always different & never back to back, hard to eat unless you have SNAP benefits, customers are rude & feed off of your reactions, CSMs pick favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the favoritism, or I'm out.

  10. Communication

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Walmart part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A really good company to work for
    Flexible schedules
    Great associates
    Helpful in family emergencies
    Good work atmosphere

    Cons

    Lack of communication to all employees
    Consistent answers to questions from employees
    Notifying employees of policy changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure information is communicated to all employees. It is hard to do a good job when policies change and you are not notified.

  11. Lots of Changes

    Pros

    Great opportunity for advancement. The changes going forward should allow for many more qualified individuals to apply and work for the company.

    Cons

    "Work life balance." As an assistant I work 4 days on and two days off. More consistent scheduling for management. Hourly associates should never be paid more than salaried management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has looked and decided that the department manager does a lot for the company. Lets look at the assistant manager as well. Otherwise, I am extremely excited to see what 2015 has in store for walmart.
