    Pros

    Been here for 2 years, started in the frozen/dairy department and now work as a certified optician. Moving up, flexible hours, good pay is great for a part time job while I work toward my college degrees to move up even further at Wal-Mart.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets very busy, but if you can manage your time and multi-task you will thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like a team, show them you are willing to work with and listen to them, not dictate, lead by example.

    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

    I personally enjoy a job where I get to move around a bit as opposed to sitting behind a desk staring at a computer all day so that was a huge pro. Other than that, the atmosphere was pretty laid back.

    Cons

    Some of my coworkers did not care about the merchandise at all and it irritated me as I had purchased products from Walmart that were broken when I opened them, so seeing people just toss televisions and mini fridges was irritating.

    Advice to Management

    Give a damn about your merchandise, it doesn't require much more work to set something down rather than throwing it.
