    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    - Employee discount
    Job security; people will always count on walmart for the lowest prices and best deals so an employee can feel secure as long as they come to work and do their jobs to the best of their ability

    Cons

    - Understaffed on purpose to save money. This tactic forces employees to do the work of two employyes all the while not getting paid for overtime

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to promote from within and not always look outside to fill a position. Sometimes the person for the job can be staring you in the face.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with a really wonderful group of people in the pharmacy. As a college student I was paid very well compared to most jobs that college students might have (waiter etc.) Felt like I had a great deal of responsibility to make sure the customers were well taken care of at the Pharmacy. Wal-Mart gets a lot of flak, but there is a reason why they are so powerful, good ideas from low level employees are heard, and changes made immediately. One instance was an employee offered the idea of removing light bulbs from employee only vending machines, saving Wal-Mart a lot of money nationwide. Changes implemented within the week. Pay increase every year and Wal-Mart discount card was given to all employees.

    Cons

    Hard to be promoted from store level to corporate level. As a college student working in the pharmacy I was paid well. However I'm assuming full - time staff working in other departments may not be paid as much.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Walmart is very associate friendly and treats associates like family. The people truly care about each other on both personal and professional levels and will support whatever career aspirations someone has.

    Cons

    With stores spread out across the U.S., it can be difficult for field associates to feel connected to the home office.
