    Pros

    The people are fun to work with. You get to be kinda creative sometimes with the cakes. There are opportunities for advancement.

    There's a lot of middle management. You are expected to do a lot of work for one person most days.

    won't allow any kind of overtime, terrible management, don't understand that if someone calls in the same amount of work can't be done...

    If you don't want overtime then hire more people - we all know you have the money.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Kenosha, WI
    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Kenosha, WI

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The breaks are reasonable in time and occurances and they'll give you the hours you ask for usually (depending on what you put as your availability). Depending on which department you work in, you can usually count on being busy.

    Cons

    Management does not always understand that one person can't do the job of 2 people, particularly when it comes to closing. And if they can, they will work you 40 hours even if you aren't full time. I wonder sometimes how some supervisors got to where they are when they don't even know how things work in one of their departments...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule better - if you want all the things you want done, you need the manpower and not just encouraging words.

    Working in Walmart Deli

    • Comp & Benefits

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Deli Associate in Milwaukee, WI
    Current Employee - Deli Associate in Milwaukee, WI

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

    Pros

    Regular schedule.
    Deli salary is a little higher than other hourly associates.
    Works with my requests for days off. This depends on your Assistant Manager.
    Allowed to trade hours with other employees.
    Locations everywhere, easy to transfer after 6 months
    Work no later than 10pm
    Physical exercise.

    Cons

    Production driven, very physical. I am a closer, so the job is very physical. Clean, move, transfer, scrub.
    If you are a germaphobe, or easily upset over raw chicken, etc. This is not for you.
    Not much encouragement, they rather motivate by fear of job loss or offense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees. Keep the good ones, get rid of the useless. Don't be quite so concerned about corporate as you are about your "good ". Employees. Encourage. Congratulate. Create positive work environment.
