    Pros

    you start seeing the same customers everyday and you look forward to seeing them and helping them with all there needs

    Cons

    some of the challenges are customers that are not very happy campers and it is your job to try and make them as happy as possible while shopping

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sometimes they don't see how hard you are working and how much you get done in a day..they only sometimes see the bad not the good and need to recognize that...it would make the employees much happier and this reflects on the customers

    Pros

    I believe Walmart is a good place to work out. The reason i believe this is most of your coworkers are willing to put in equal effort. The environment in Walmart is amazing. Working with Walmart gives one a sense of freedom that makes working for Walmart seem like it's a respectable establishment.

    Cons

    I believe there are a few cons to working in Walmart like , once in a while you take on a double shift or work by yourself.

    Pros

    If you want to always be busy. Walmart is a place for you

    Cons

    Depending on the store the management will give you a bunch of tasks that are basically impossible to get finished in the time your shift is over and get upset with you when you don't complete the tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pack on more than an associate can handle

    Pros

    The environment is friendly, and clean. There is a lot of room for promotions and such. They work with your school schedule or whatever other accommodations you may need. The hours are good, and you get raises often.

    Cons

    Having a heavy workload, and dealing with some unruly customers. Overnight hours are a lot if you are a stocker.

    Pros

    Training consists of on the job and computer based learning opportunities. Affordable medical insurance, bonuses, scholarships for college students, GED reimbursement and paid vacation as well as paid personal time off. If you want to move to be closer to family, attend college, or just make a fresh start you can transfer your job to a location nearby. If you are looking for a company with growth opportunity this is it.

    Cons

    Most associates start off as part time. Like most organizations there are both good and bad managers. New associate schedules can be a bit random and you may have to work both early mornings and closing shifts within the same week. In addition, days off can also be random so it makes it difficult to plan appointments or other arrangements more than a few weeks out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with one another so that you can utilize your workforce in the most effective way. Remember you were once an associate so treat your team as you would like to have be treated.
