    I have been working at Walmart full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I h ave work for many companies in the retail industry. This is one of the best companies I ever work for. There is always room for advancement training and promotions. The management team truly value every associate they hire within those doors. Every associate support , motivate, guide each other we are more than just a team we are family.

    Cons

    The unhealthy energy other the media, Union critics, protest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere and wonderful fellow employees. They made it super easy to get started.

    Cons

    Not everyone there wanted to make an impact on the Wal-Mart brand and sad to say some of those people were upper level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love this company! It opened a door for me that I am grateful for.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great management customers and staff. Everyone was willing to help each other out. I was able to cross train in every department of the store

    Cons

    Not enough front end staff scheduled leaving CSMs to ring consistently while management came up to run the front so they didn't have to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure if you have 25 registers that you schedule adequate staff to operate plenty to keep your front end moving smoothly.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Flexible hours, they work with your schedule better than most places. Lots of different managers and personalities (good place to chill and hide). interesting co-workers. lots of high school dropouts and drugies. Illegitimate relationships everywhere you look if your into that? It's real hard to get fired. Nobody gets canned except for stealing.

    Cons

    Pay sucks, no job promotion, no overtime. Can't survive on the wage. Lots of single moms working near 40 hrs/week getting welfare, foodstamps, SSI, medicade. Lots of handicap people who make more than the normal ones doing most of the work?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the price on the merchandise to give the hourlies a raise. We'd work harder for just a little more money. Higher people with job experience and those who have a HS diploma. Give new people benefits right away.
