    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Training was thorough. You will know what you're doing before you hit the floor by yourself for the first time. More freedom and flexibility than most jobs. Management is helpful and they help you out.

    Cons

    The people you stop are obviously not the most friendly or safe people to be around.The job can be a little bit stressful when you have a shoplifter in your office while you're filling out paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    I understand it might not be feasible, but I would have felt safer with another AP working with me.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Various Shift Work, Nice Neighborhood with friendly customers

    Cons

    Short shifts not worth the gas to get to the place. I live in a rural area and the amount of shift hours was not worth leaving my kids at home and traveling over 20 miles to work. I can say they were random with the shifts (some morning/evenings)

    Advice to Management

    Review who you promote to management positions. Make sure they are competent and people persons. This is a people business remember...

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to grow and move but you must be willing to relo, flexibility to learn new things, new positions. Company benefits are numerous

    Cons

    To move from an hourly to a management position and stay in the same location is highly possible but if you are highly motivated and well qualified and willing to relo it can be an smoother transition
