    I can offer a great attitude to any office environment, with experience in many areas. I am also very dependable.

    Pros

    Complete package of benefits as long as you can remain full time status
    Good stable schedule if you are a department manager

    Cons

    They compensate Department managers a very little bump in pay however they expect your department to run regardless if you are there or not. They want you to take ownership of your department yet pull you to every other part of the store then get upset because your area is not being kept up to standards. Regardless of their "No Retaliation" policy they claim to stand behind if you challenge any part of your job or decide to take part in the open door policy with no retaliation you will put a giant target on your back and they will make your life very uncomfortable til you are left with no option but to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Allow Department Managers to remain in their appropriate areas and not be the got to people that when you need some other department squared away, zoned, or simply because a large amount of trucks are coming. The Department Manager position job has been outlined to complete certain tasks in a timely manner and when you choose to put them elsewhere it affects every part of the store. Hire a zoning crew or seasonal department that in fact handles their own area so that the other departments can maintain some type of organization and if your current crew in the back cannot handle the large truck nights then hire more back people.

    Pros

    My managers, zone and assistant, are very kind and professional. They work with you when you have a schedule change request and are open to suggestions to make Walmart better. I like my job, my coworkers and managers create a fun, but professional environment. I feel like I have an excellent chance to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Being professional and polite to customers who are very challenging. They may be having a bad day, so I don't take it personally. Getting our jobs done is difficult because there are not enough workers to get it done. We are constantly getting pulled from our jobs to help in grocery and the check outs.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people to get the job done. My departments would be a lot neater, well zoned and well stocked if we had enough people to help all over the store. To hire and retain quality workers you may need to raise the pay. We cannot find anyone to fill a spot in the apparel department. Our personnel coordinator says the last good one that applied, failed her drug test. The others seem to not have any work ethics. Turnover costs money, is it really cheaper than paying good employees a good wage, thus attracting more good employees?
