    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

    Flexible schedule. Laid back atmosphere on 3rd shift. Safety incentives.

    Cons

    Managers tend to "target" individuals for disciplinary action. Severe cut in hours during January and February. Training tends to take a back seat to daily duties. Nothing WalMart related can be done off the clock (including applying for other WalMart positions and requesting time off).

    Advice to Management

    Endeavor to treat people equally rather than play favorites. Follow-through after meetings with Associates. Set time aside for training so it doesn't pile up.

    Pros

    I had a real full time job to take care of my family. work was easy, fast past, i got to make other people happy by somehow managing their needs. it was nice and cool

    Cons

    people pretty much did what they wanted. high rank managers had there favorites, put their work on you while they did nothing, it was so messy it was like the club. and prejudice i was the only white girl their i got wrote up for everything they did they same thing was said

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to be loyal and committed to your job. treat everyone equally and fairly. you didn't come to work to make best friends. you came to work to make sure your store was at its best in every quality meeting every customers need if not you trying to fix or better improve something looking and inspiring new things not gossiping and letting everything fall short when you knew you could cover yourself while someone takes the blame who really needed that job
