    I have been working at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great, knowledgeable, hard-wokring staff. I love the actual physically of my job and the reputation of a great produce section in my county in comparison to other supermarkets.

    Cons

    Too many bosses. I Still have questions about benefits after 4 months, My pay is not as high as I would like for the physical nature of the job.N. Not enough full-time employees or even opportunities to move up to full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate some of the unnecessary bloat at management and use it to hire full-time workers who actually know how to run there department, rather just just a tiny bit about each department- the store is too big for that kind of management,

    I have been working at Walmart part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    time-off policies, discount, discounts for vision, hair salon, pharmacy, and Murphy's gas station...friendly associates, easy to talk to management, absent policy, promotions

    Cons

    work-life balance, understaffed, usually have to handle more than one task throughout the day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    schedule enough people for each department to be taken care of...I have found that it stresses both the customer and associates when each department is understaffed

    Amazingly nimble

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    For such a massive company, Walmart does an amazing job of staying in lock step with its core consumer. Examples include Pick up Today and the return of layaway.

    Cons

    While the concepts are clean, implementation is a bear. So many moving parts. Ends up placing a heavy burden on the operators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes you have to step back to move forward. Some platforms are just not able to support new business processes.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Hard work and dedication to learning more about yourself and the business will take you anywhere you wish.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge. There is significant delay in the adoption of modern systems to manage the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should continue to push for culture adherence and root out insubordinate behavior quicker. Also don't be afraid to let people go that aren't adding value to the business.
