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

    Pros

    Get to work with many experienced associates, pay is great, and you arent ever gonna get fired unless you do something incredibly stupid, like steal equipment or sell information

    Cons

    This company is really big, and really old, and so that means there are many old ways of doing things that need to be changed, but it takes a long time to turn the big ship. And there are so many specialists and so much data, but not always the best organization which can lead to many inefficiencies and frustrations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are just way too many of you

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    A secure place to work or at least as secure as a job can be.
    Fair pay for the required work. Top out at $20.05 an hour at this time.
    Benefits are good. Need to invest in your own retirement. Match 6% on 401K.

    Cons

    High percentage of managers should not be in management. They do not live by the standards that Sam installed into his company.
    Talk safety as being number one but actions point toward production comes first.
    Favoritism is found in most areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistency in how each employee is treated. Everyone should be treated the same.
    Integrity needs to be stressed and expected.
    Respect for the individual is one of three key elements Sam installed into his company. Many managers do not respect other managers or employees. Employees see through this and do not respect the managers.

    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    Looks well developed and very organized. Many people enter this store and think wow everything is easy to find. At least thsts what I say all tge time. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone with opinion.

    Cons

    Sometimes people might be shy and might not work well with others as they do with themselves. Same thing if its crowded with peoole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For myself I am a well orginized person. Follow rules and get the job done correct.

    Pros

    Steady work. That's about it.This job sucks a lot. Beware.

    Cons

    The job is a dead end. The management treats you like crap. You gotta kiss all kinds of butt just to move up a little. You get a measly 40cents a year raise. They start you off with less than a dollar more then minimum wage. This job is not for someone who wants something out of life. I was there for 4 and a half years. I start with $9.20 and left with $10.80 not even $11:after almost 5 years. SMH

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being sheep. Take the stick out of your butts

    Pros

    The employees and employers in the Walmart on Loop 288 Denton, TX were sweet and loving.

    Cons

    Customers were atrocious as were some of the higher management. No set schedules made it hard to really plan anything.
