    Soooo bad...

    Wal Mart Cashier (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

    ProsNone, there is absolutly no pros

    ConsManagement does not care. Non management employees run the store like they are management and do whatever they want. Retaliation is constant especially if youre asking for time off. They are unfair to pregnant women and they work hard workers to the bone without raises or any promotions. Really makes you hate life to work here. The whole corperation is greedy and disgusting.

    Not The Company I Thought It Was

    Cashier (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

    ProsGreat people to work with

    ConsUnderstaffed, frenetic pace and overload of available staff is unbelievable. And WalMart likes it this way. All that "listen to your employees" stuff and "one team one family" propaganda they hand you is nothing but a load of manure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStore management not to blame for the policies of the business school bean counter types that head the corporation, they're just doing what they're told.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Sales Floor Associate

    Sales Floor (Former Employee) Tucson, AZ

    Prosflexible hours, most staff decent to work with, 10% discount on everything but food, ability to cross-train and move up if you work and show initiative.

    Conshigh costs of medical/dental vs pay received, no OT, hours cut if the store is collectively close to OT in any way, if you get hurt accidents are 100% on you:expect retaliation in some form, low % chance to move up to corporate level

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake corporate jobs easier to locate! Your associates are "settling" for crappy jobs they are over qualified for. Tons of them have DEGREES and could be promoted from the inside to make the company stronger if you LOOK to your sales floor.

    Walmart

    Meat and Seafood Sales Associate (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

    ProsSteady employment after 90 day probation
    Quarterly bonuses for associates after 1 year in company
    Benefits after 2 years for PT and 1 year for FT

    ConsMost coworkers and management do bare minimum
    Most management either don't know or just don't follow policies and lie and create new policies
    Quarterly bonuses are usually small and can be taken away by management, whom still get their thousands in quarterly bonuses

    Walmart, apart from their stand against favoritism, is one of the worst when it comes to management granting favors to their friends within the store and feeding into their prejudice against other associates
