    I worked at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They gave fair pay based on what you had to do for the job. It was a very easy and fun job that allowed for social interaction with both customers and fellow sales associates. I felt there was a good work atmosphere where there were many benefits considering the ease of the job. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and feel that I was a valued member of the staff team.

    Cons

    There were no problems. Anything that came up management took care of and I had no qualms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
