Featured Review

Former Employee - Loss Prevention

I worked at Walmart full-time for less than a year

Pros

Walmart is very good at being flexible with one's work schedule, especially if you are a student full time.

Cons

I don't have anything negative to say about Walmart.

Advice to Management

Keep following you’re policies and remain understanding to your employees' needs

Former Contractor - Copywriter

I worked at Petco for more than 5 years

Pros

I worked for Petco off and on for 7 years and I believe that they are truly passionate about the health and well-being of pets. The entire corporate culture revolves around pets and it's a lot of fun... to be able to bring your pets to work with you.

Cons

As with any large company, there are many, many stakeholders to any given project. Because of this, projects tend to move slowly, which can be frustrating.

Advice to Management

Identify the all-star team members, recognize their contributions and make an effort to retain them at all levels.
