    Pros

    Been here for 2 years, started in the frozen/dairy department and now work as a certified optician. Moving up, flexible hours, good pay is great for a part time job while I work toward my college degrees to move up even further at Wal-Mart.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets very busy, but if you can manage your time and multi-task you will thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like a team, show them you are willing to work with and listen to them, not dictate, lead by example.

    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

    Walmart is very open minded to letting their employees be individuals and express themselves. Tattoos and piercings are okay! As long as they aren't offensive or a hazard.

    Cons

    The background check can take a while, so be patient when waiting to get your call for orientation. But as soon as it does come back be prepared to start work immediately!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
