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

Pros

10% discount on instore and online purchases is handy. Field positions get a company car, and a lot of flexibility to come and go as you want.

Cons

"every day low cost" means re-using binders, pens, pencils, phones, chairs, laptops etc until they are broken, and then keep on using it. The corporate culture is 'small town southern USA' and if you don't fit, you are blackballed. Fixing items at the home office is not done - water coolers, air conditioning, washrooms (no hot water in one of the men's), carpet gets taped down.

Advice to Management

fire my coach please!

    Pros

    Good benefits and profit sharing. Company is expanding and lots of opportunities are presented. If your liked you can get fast tracked.

    Cons

    Too structured, the expectations on the amount of resources given does not reflect the work they require. Lots of people complain and dont care.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support and better training for your non-assistant manager positions.
