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

Pros

You can basically create your schedule the way you want it. You can change your availability at any time.

Cons

As a cashier, you on constantly standing on your feet and do not move around much so it's uncomfortable.

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

    Pros

    Easy to get hired into leadership if you have good experience or know a hiring leader.

    Cons

    1. Hires over qualified individuals for roles that lack level of responsibility equivalent to prior experience.
    2. Rampant change; there are yearly reorganizations. I work in headquarters, my department/team has experienced two significant reorgs this year and we are expecting another one the next 30 days.
    3. Unprofessional environment, both my bosses have been perverts and have made repeated propositions. Environment requires you "play along" despite an open door and anti-retaliation policy. Very difficult for women leaders to get recognition or get promoted.
    4. Unclean/unsafe offices. I sit in the same building as the CEO, it is rodent infested and has mold. In the spirit of being Low Cost, building maintenance does not remove garbage, or clean working areas, every employee is responsible for cleaning and removing their own trash. If you sit next near an unclean person, it can be painful.
    5. Poor Benefits. High deductibles, poor options.

    Advice to Management

    Promote success (achieving goals, breaking new ground, handwork), regardless of sex and who people are "friendly" with.

    Pros

    Great pay and it can be fun if your willing to work for it

    Cons

    Negativity from upper management and the open door is closed

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who like to work not to fill voids
