    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Good hours. They were flexibile and willing to work around my school schedule, which was awesome. It was also a good location, very easy free way access and close to the mall!

    Cons

    The atmosphere - the people who shop at Wal-Mart are kind of weird and gross. The people who work at Wal-Mart aren't much better, for the most part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's not much that I would do to improve the situation - aside from the people that they hire and attract as a business, which I cannot do anything about.

    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.

    I have been working at Walmart

    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
