    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Food discount card, THe best Gym facility at Bentonville AR home office.

    Cons

    Walmart has the power to be the best company worldwide, the problem is the way they treat the employees. We many hours of work 70 sometimes 80 hours a week. The health coverage is the worst I ever had, almost every employee has coverage in some place else, they never pay a full bonus, they always explain the same thing, “We didn’t sell enough , we had a bad quarter”. Some years they paid 35% , 40% of bonus, I never got a full bonus in . I guess everybody stop eating and nobody is buying more food . Upper management is very difficult to set up a meeting, they blow us off all the time without explanation. They keep giving projects and more projects, with short deadlines when you say that you are already bringing extra work for home and cannot handle any more extra projects , they just tell you to figure it out. The salary is bad and is not getting better anytime soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice? They don’t listen, they don’t care the only advice I can give is for myself . Keep looking for a better job in someplace else, where I don’t need juggle with my bills and be stressed all the time and I can spend more time with my family

    Current Employee - Walmart Sales Associate in Greeneville, TN

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Discount
    Medical Insurance for those who average more than 30 hours per week
    Some friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Unbelievable amount of work to be accomplished in sometimes 5 hour shifts
    Some dept are pampered ( over abundance of help)
    But most dept have 1 maybe 2 associates
    These same depts once had 5-8 associates , 3 - 5 years ago
    Management is totally out of the loop
    They could care less about the floor associates
    The harder you work the less they care
    God help you if you work in a dept where thr dept manager thinks they don't need to work
    Just walk around with a telzon/gemini
    No one is happy at the store I work at
    It is a life sucking environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the ones out on the floor like Sam Walton said
    Not likely to happen though,sad to say

    Pros

    This was a horrible place to work and there was no pros to working there. They never let you move around within the store and if they find out you need more hours they cut them.

    Cons

    Worst place ever. Everyone is part time so they can pocket more money. They are a terrible employer. They are sneaky liars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be real.

    Pros

    Meet a lot of interesting people they often give high school kids and veterans along with the elder a job when they need it.

    Cons

    Highly disrespectful to employee's because they know you're just a number, favoritism is so bad that they will fire the hard workers and keep the slackers really depends on if they like you or not. Hard work is not rewarded or appreciated so employees tend to slack off and sadly customers notice this so then the store as a whole receive bad reviews, it starts at the top and trickle down to the door greeters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone the same respect everyone
