Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Pay for management is okay. I enjoyed associates and customers at my location. Training was done very well. Very impressed with the individual that ran training for managers.

Cons

Store management and up are condescending. No matter how hard you work or how much your associates respect you, you will always have store management to bring you down. Policies are that of a penitentiary. Loosen up people.

Advice to Management

Loosen up people. Don't treat your employees like second class.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement in the hourly associate levels, great team building skills, most stores build a family among the associates and management. Overall a pretty friendly place to work.

    Cons

    There is one major downfall and that's really it. That would be that Walmart now brings in a lot of Assistant managers and Co managers in straight from College instead of giving the opportunity to existing associates.

    Advice to Management

    Only one thing to play off of the Con from above: If you keep promotions in house there will be more experience and loyalty in the upper management of this company.

    "Work hard get no recognition. Work little and suck up to management you will get far."

    Pros

    If your lucky enough to work with supportive and helpful coworkers you will find the job bare-able. Six years ago the company wasn't so bad but has gotten progressively worse.

    Cons

    As a company the work conditions have gotten worse along with the recognition. The upper management have a great role in the store moral however executives pile on the pressure and hence associates feel the pressures. More work, less money. Recognition used to be a big part of the company belief which included merit raises (raises for being exceptional in the work you do) nowadays ever penny they can save and make your work harder is their motto.

    Advice to Management

    Management should re-evaluate their current operations as employees are not factory workers but people. It seems like they're promoting anyone even remotely interested in make a few extra bucks and not for their leadership abilities or people skills. Recognizing employees that actually put effort in their work would be a start!
