I worked at Walmart as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Have a few incentives, consistent breaks, some good people to work with, good benefits, help monetarily with college, and pay well compared to similar businesses.

Cons

No AC in the warehouse, manager tells us that we are the burden of the company, company doesn't account for anything for example (if something falls from the conveyer system way above your head while you are hustling boxes in your truck, it's your fault for not looking thirty feet above you while your loading cartons in the truck and you get written up.) Cannot use your cell phone for any reason at all, and if found out you will immediately be fired no warnings, another thing is that you are forced to listen to horrible music all day long and cannot bring your own music device in.

Advice to Management

I would advise putting some railings on the conveyer system to keep cartons from falling off and creating damages and loss of production. Be able to park closer to the different departments so you don't have to walk for 7 minutes just to go to your work station. When you have incentive lunches or safety meals bring them to each department so you don't have to spend at least a third of your lunch time walking. If everyone is so worried about safety then they should be paying more attention to employees and supervise more, only Asset Protection walks around every once and awhile to harass employees about minor details.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to work if you want to get out of the house and be a Greeter.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites. Unrealistic demands and deadlines without enough help in every department. Medical plan has very high deductables and poor coverage,....not worth much! Vacation is only available after two years employment. Swinging door policy in place: much rapid turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and value each employee. Start with the assumption that the associates are adults. Make sure that every department has enough employees scheduled to provide the excellant customer service they so want to provide. Remember,....customer service starts with NO out of stocks. And, reconsider your "swinging door" policy fo employment!

    Pros

    Good hours on overnights with moderate wages for compensation . Offered discounts on most of the store excluding Foods.

    Cons

    Managers are too overbearing. work versus pay loads are completely unbalanced. trying to request any type of schedule change is almost near to impossible. Overall the store is a terrible place to work
