I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Competitive pay. Company emphasizes three basic beliefs, respect for the individual, service to the customer, and exceed expectations. The size of the operation provides many opportunities outside traditional retail positions.

Cons

Newer employees do not have access to all the benefits that older, grandfathered employees get. Merchandising and local control has fallen in recent years. Company lost its focus around 2005. Same sex spouses are not allowed insurance benefits, even in states where that is legal.

Advice to Management

Regain focus, embrace all associates (particularly LGBT), Reread Made in America.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They'll hire you with no experience.

    Cons

    The pay is what you would expect, so sadly no entitlement.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only thing that I can say that was good is that the co-workers were easy to get along with.

    Cons

    I had a number of different supervisors who weren't always in communication with each other. I was sometimes worried about who to listen too.

    Advice to Management

    If you bring in an outside firm to do your remodel, make sure the store manager has the last say in what is being done.
