    Pros

    You work with some good people.

    Cons

    Pay is not good. No room for advancement except if you kiss the bosses butt. You work your butt off to find out you get your hours cut but people who don't want to work get the hours. New people get better shifts while you get bumped to work bad shifts. Most managers at my store are a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. Promote the people who want to move up and work there butt off. Your management teams at my store show to much favoritism

    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 worked at Walmart full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unless you're a college graduate, Wal-Mart's pay and benefits are equal if not better than most entry level jobs - medical, sales..etc.

    Cons

    I would say the "it's only Wal-Mart" mindset held by some associates and customers as well who are unaware that most Wal-Mart employees probably make more than they do. Only the name changes. Companies are all the same...get the most work out of as few employees as possible...pay just enough salary to ensure their annual bonus checks aren't affected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Verbal communication was encouraged. Wal-Mart even had a no-gossip rule. Termination was the penalty. How many places have you worked where an attempt to cut down on gossip/negativity was enforced? I work for a top Healthcare organization and the gossip and negativity is thick enough to cut with a knife.
