    Former Employee - Inventory Management Specialist in Kimball, WV

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    When you don't have anywhere else to turn for work, a paycheck or two from these slave drivers is about the extent of the tolerance threshold. Then again, I do hold a B.S. Degree in Engineering, and had to live on mere cents above minimum wage. They don't respect education, and won't acknowledge employee expertise unless the company was involved in the said education.

    Cons

    Lifting heavy merchandise is about the sum of the "hard" work, everything else an ape could be trained to do, except maybe the money counting etc. (Math). Every manager thinks they are a rock stars because they are part of management of the company. It gets downright appalling sometimes. Makes you want to avoid these individuals because they are over dramatic about everything, and think they are busier than the President of the United States, when really the extent of this "busy time" is talking and gossiping about everything and everybody. Every time you need one, you always find them when they are not busy for some strange reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice? Don't make me laugh! With managers that can't get past their ego enough to know when they are wrong or make a mistake, I honestly don't think they would take advice from anyone. Money is the number one thing that is important to this company, which is good business, but they don't care about other things along with the money. It shows too much. I seen people get fired for things that were so trivial it was stupid. I finally figured it out, and it made me sick. If you get high up in your position, or get too many years under your belt, the company will look for reasons to fire you, because they can always hire someone to do your job at a discount when you do get fired. I seen way to many times to be a coincidence. That is just not good business. No wonder they are loosing their position as a major retailer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you first hire someone try to get them certified and ready for everything that they need to use or might use in the store. Before sending out on the sales floor.

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

    Pros

    Only the people I work with.

    Cons

    This company is very much so on the decline. I myself am part time and have worked here for over 2 years. Worked with people who have been employed here for almost 5 years and were unable to get full time hours which caused the to leave.However, I have heard that this mostly inside my store. Grass roots survey came back as one of the worst reviews in the country. No open door policy with most of management team, with the exception of a few, most are excessively rude and make u feel belittled and unimportant when asking for assistance. This store should truthfully be shut down and overhauled because it is falling apart. I hear nothing but good things about the South side Parkersburg store as well as the Marietta store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more accessible, this is your job to oversee and to help, you are not doing us a favor.

    Pros

    Easy work, always looking for people

    Cons

    Rude and disrespectful management, low pay, no room for promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your associates. If there is a problem with an associate have a conversation with them instead of automatically going to the write-up system. If you take steps towards keeping your associates happy productivity will rise. Higher wages is part of the problem of why associates are so dissatisfied with working for the company. I put in almost 2 years with the company. I know these things would help from personal experience and from chatting with my co-workers.
