    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    It's an ok temporary place, or a good career if you have nothing else or are lucky enough not to get fired by a lying customer.

    Cons

    The employees are treated like crap most of the time, by most of the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce the rules from which the company originated, don't neglect your employees

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

    Pros

    Being around the customers is great, I love a good challenge with a bunch of price matching and couponing. I loved watching over the self check out, making sure customers had a clear view on how to work the machines.

    Cons

    The only cons is that they do not accept doctors notes, and they really do not care how sick you are, a call off for any reason is counted against you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management needs to be more friendly, and needs to get to know more of the on floor people. They kind of just walk around like we are their little peasants.

    Pros

    I can not think of any. Maybe being able to transfer?

    Cons

    Unorganized crazy managers, low pay, will NOT work with schedule and treats everyone like a useless robot or teen in highschool. Ur life doesn't matter, it's the needs of the store before u

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more understanding, and considerate of people's lives.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tons of positions! Lot of room to grow. Great pay for beginner and experience people. Good benefits. You get recognitions for things done well.

    Cons

    Attendance policy doesn't make sense, if you actually have doctors notes. They don't care. You have to know your management well to get promoted and notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have no choice but to follow corporate policies, but they need to revise the attendance policy, and the way they promote and choose their management.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Store was pretty laid back until upper management came. I had a great set of Assistant Managers and my Store Manager was good as well.

    Cons

    The department I ran was short on help all the time I filled in a lot in order to maintain positive sales.

    Pay wasn't that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't cut hours to save company money, invest in your hard workers and if everyone see that hard work truly "PAYS OFF" then everyone would put in that extra effort.
