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

    Pros

    Where I began working they will work with your schedule to get you the time off that you need. The pharmacy is it's own world to the rest of Walmart.

    Cons

    Walmart Pharmacy Technicians are the lowest paid in all of retail. Recently gave us all a pay raise to try and compensate, still fell short of the rest.

    Former Employee - Overnight Stocker in Tucson, AZ

    I worked at Walmart part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent amount of hours, pay okay for unskilled work, training okay. It was what I expected for an overnight stocking position. I was fortunate enough to work with a great group of people overnight (even though some were a little bit weird).

    Cons

    I was not impressed by overnight management. They seemed uneducated and some would make workers do things that they thought would be an improvement just for daytime management to disapprove and switch it right back. One hour lunches for overnight shifts is way too long in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your management team and workers. Shorten lunch time for overnight workers.

    Pros

    None, there is absolutly no pros

    Cons

    Management 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Boycot walmart everyone

    Pros

    The best reason is that Walmart pays regularly.

    Cons

    The training should be more frequent and for several skills/positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management should attention more the costs of the stores.

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Understaffed, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Store 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.

    Former Employee - Sales Floor in Tucson, AZ
    Former Employee - Sales Floor in Tucson, AZ

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexible 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.

    Cons

    high 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make 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.
