    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    There really are no pros other than sometimes you might get hired and they'll forget what they hired you for which leads to you literally walking around making the store look pretty.

    Cons

    Low pay, high stress, management doesn't communicate which leads to employees walking around with no idea what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate, treat your employees better.

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

    Pros

    Pros are that they are very flexible with scheduling, which is good because I'm a full time student. Also some advancement offered if you try hard enough. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Monotonous work, low pay, takes a long time to work your way up, unprofessional co-workers. Doesn't give much relevant work experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote those who want more than minimum wage drone work.

    Pros

    You get a 10% discount from all Walmart stores.

    Cons

    Very low wage. The management treats you as if your making salary based pay but its barely over minimum wage. No bonuses. Within a 3 year period we were only eligible once, yet the upper management got theirs annually.

    Hourly Associate

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.
