    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities to develop with the company. The only limit is yourself. I've been here less than a year and I am a floater between two jobs which allows me to make 40 hours a week. I am being groomed for management because I am willing to put in 100% at my job.

    Cons

    The coworkers that just is here for a paycheck and can care less if the store succeed or not. They must realize that if everyone do their part, work will be better for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire individuals that have a positive attitude and get rid of the negative ones because it affects morale.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Company Culture here in the corporate HQ is wonderful
    Exposure to many areas of business and plenty of ways to find the position that best suits you.
    Potential for career growth is amazing. Every 18 months is a potential to move up.
    Job security is a big plus

    Cons

    Location of Bentonville Arkansas is not the best place for young singles, probably best suited for young families with children.
    Many days can be an overload of work whereas other days seem very slow with little to nothing to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience is management does stay for long until they move to another area. I have been lucky to have good managers but I inow of other associates with much worst experiences with management being too demanding or rude.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Walmart doing many different things. They do allow people to grow.

    Cons

    Not enough Dept Managers. Should have 1 person per Department. We are asked to do to much and we don't have enough time to complete our tasks. Our pay scale should also be looked at. I've been at Walmart for 8 years and I work 3 depts including layaway, site to store, pick up today and Customer Service, Service Desk, CSM, electronics and jewelry when needed. I only make 12.50 per hour and I don't think that's enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't ask of others what you can't manage yourself. Managers, Asst Managers are worked to hard and expected to make the employees do what they can't do. It has to start at the top and make things fair.

    Pros

    It's a nice, friendly, and well kept environment.

    Cons

    GM Recieving Assoicates are at times over worked. 9/10 they're short staffed in all departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax, the Recieving Associates get the job done. Just give them the time to actually complete the task.

    Current Employee - Assistant Manager

    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Benifits, medical insurance, career advancement.

    Cons

    The schedule of an assistant manager is not conducive to raising a family. Pay for salaried managers with tenure is no longer competitive with current demands. Evaluations of salaried managers are done in a group calibration session where others with no working experience or only a base knowledge of your working experience judge how you have performed all year. I agree with consistency within the markets but this leaves many managers rated unfairly which in turn affects their families and gives a sense of unfulfillment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak up for what you feel is right. It never hurts to give someone the opportunity to think about a second option.
