    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.

    Hourly Associate

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Walmart is a company that will take good care of you if you put in initiative and take pride in what you do. There is so much room to grow inside the store and abroad. Walmart promotes its people to higher positions in as little as 6 months to people who deserve it. Again, initiative and pride.

    Cons

    For hourly associates (non-salary), we face hour cuts to meet business need. The cuts don't last very long, but that doesn't make it hurt any less. As with any retailer, the Holiday Season is always a challenge due to high customer volume and demand. Your time is precious and you spend a lot of it at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. Talk to your people. Guide your people. They are on the Front Lines for you.

    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.

    Pros

    Ok pay for a starter job. Flexible shifts.

    Cons

    You pretty much never get to 40 hrs. a week, and management can sometimes be very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your most valued workers. They are the driving force of the corporation, and your bonuses.

    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    The best thing about working for walmart is the benefits and the bonuses we get every 3 months

    Cons

    You can challenge yourself by learning where everything is inside the store. And most holidays should be spent with families instead they make you work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to share advice with upper management is the management in my location doesn't seem like management at all and they don't appreciate all that hard work we do. All besides Mrs Ann orrington and Mr Chris Dietrich.

    Pros

    You get a quarterly bonus if your store sales are high with no accidents.

    Cons

    Hours are cut low after Christmas sales until March or April of the next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since this is a global company, try to base your pay higher so that the new hires would want to stay.
