Does Walmart offer employee discounts?

Pros

They have some great benefits, you get the discount card in 90 days (even though it doesn't give you a 10% discount on everything). Medical, vision and dental insurance is very reasonable. If you work on black Friday you get a certificate that gives you 20% off almost anything in the store, but you can only use it once and they wait for you to get paid. Depending on what store you work at, the employees can be friendly and treat you like a family. The 9 point system is pretty generous for absences, but the points can add up in a 6 month period. You do get paid pretty well as an optician, but working as a team can be difficult.

Cons

Most management have their favorites so it doesn't matter how well you perform. Opticians do not make commissions. You are expected to pick up the slack in your area if someone is behind. Hours can vary by how management of the vision center is. If you need more you can always pick up hours as a cashier.

Advice to Management

STOP CHOOSING FAVORITES!!!!!!!!!! YOU WOULDNT LIKE IT IF IT WAS DONE TO YOU SO DONT DO IT TO ASSOCIATES!

Does Walmart offer life insurance?

Pros

The pharmacy software program, Connexus, is great program overall.

Cons

Technician training program is not optimal. Real life insurance billing and troubleshooting are not in training modules. Combination drop-off/pick-up windows make it difficult for cashiers to perform optimally. Cashier must log out, then technician or pharmacist must log in to take in new rx's, refill, insurance information, etc. The logging in process takes too long. Give the staff control of the thermostat in the pharmacy. The technicians need better pay. The staffing budget keeps getting cut. We need more staff to support better customer/patient service. Not all pharmacies have a restroom.

Advice to Management

Be nice to your associates. Don't be patronizing. A compliment would be nice occasionally, instead of constant criticism. Don't block the work flow of the pharmacy while you are there visiting. Allow more staff and optimize the work flow setup of the pharmacy.

What is health insurance like at Walmart?

Pros

With little to no skills, walmart is a great place to start. There's a lot to learn and lots of room to grow. They have some of the best benefits, the health insurance is good, company 100% matched 401k, disability benefits, paid time off accrued at the beginning of employment for full and part time. Outstanding maternity and parental leave. Quarterly bonuses for all associates.

Cons

They will work you very hard. Weekends and holidays are mandatory, it is retail after all. The life/work balance is a bit rough, especially if you are a parent.
