    Pros

    Great place to work they respect their employees and they have great benefits including retirement and health benefits, bonuses, and vacation pay.

    Cons

    The cons are just the normal everyday thing of being on your feet all day long, dealing with irate
    Customers, and they overflow of returns at Christmas.
    I loved my job at Walmart.

    Money is okay love the people I work with. They seem to appreciate what I do and how hard I work.

    The will work you to death! No breaks or lunches. You have to just make time between calls. The higher you go in the chain of management the more clouded it gets

    Advice to Management

    Be there for your ppl. Answer every call.

    Pros

    Most of us working there are part time getting 40 hours plus overtime. We are always busy so time flies by fast. Some days we could use more help but we all try to work together to get things done. Management is typically pretty understanding on short handed days.

    Cons

    Hard to find new reliable coworkers. Pay is not really worth the work we do, but compared to other places around town it's acceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing rules weekly, and give proof of said rules from the wire.
