    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

    \I was extremely satisfied with my salary, the management, and overall comradery of the many other satisfied employees. I felt that my peers were extremely supportive when I had a question about procedures and other sales related issues.

    Cons

    The customers were somewhat disoriented with the layout of the store, however, the employees directed them to proper areas with extreme confidence.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice that I have to management is to keep up the good work! We all love you so much and have the greatest time at work, if it can be considered work.
