    Decent steady work, small lack of management though.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    As an unloader the work is pretty steady but the occasional bad days with call ins and huge truck loads, and also easy days of no truck days and helping out in other areas.

    Cons

    At my job there is a lack of management to actually see the laziness of some of the coworkers. Some who should be pulling more weight but are often found walking around acting like they are doing something when they're just talking and flirting with other co workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a closer eye on all workers. Being able to see who is a hard worker and who is actually hardly working would make a difference. Get on those who don't work and appreciate those who are.

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

    Pros

    Great starting pay for retail $10.00 and raises twice a year making $11.50 within a year.

    Cons

    Same floor mat used over and over by every cashier no fresh mats for next shift to stand on. My body ached after a shift from standing on one spot on a unless mat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change out mats with each shift and let each mat recover for 24 hours so it offers support for cashiers standing in one spot for their shift.

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

    Pros

    Depending on your position, you get to learn different skills. Benefits include: healthcare (full-time), quarterly bonuses, discounts. The better pro is the flexible schedule for school. Managers work with your schedule for school.

    Cons

    Blame. Some supervisors will blame you, for the mistakes of other employees. Management is not knowledgeable to a certain extent. CSMs are very hypocritical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to Management is very simple, promote the deserving people. Some people get promoted just because they like the person and not the people who can actually perform the job well.

    Current Employee - Cashier Associate in Fort Gratiot, MI

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

    Pros

    The coworkers are great and they have benefits most other companies don't have. There is also an associate discount program available after 3 months as well as discounts on other services. You also get annual raises.

    Cons

    Upper management only cares about filling their wallets and this generally leads to poor customer service. Although promotions are available, there are so many levels of in-store managers they are basically meaningless, and only include a pay raise and change of job title. The company can be a pain to work for but they are better than my previous employer. No health benefits for part time and impossible to get full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you employees better. They will become happier at work which will lead to better customer service and happier cusotomers. Give your employees a decent livable wage and they wouldn't have to rely on food stamps and welfare, and other benefits that are offered by the company. Also, instead of bullying vendors to get cheaper products, sell a quality product that customers won't return.

    Pros

    Benefits and discounts are outstanding!!! Walmart really knows how to take care of their managers financially.

    Cons

    Associates working at Walmart need classes on ethics, treating each other with dignity and respect and to be thankful they have jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the office, get on the floor and talk to your associates.
