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

Pros

Ability to move to different appartments was excellent as well as being promoted to supervisor or assistant manager. There were many different and exciting technological things to learn that improved your work as an employee.

Cons

Pay was just average and increases were average as well. There wasn't much for recognition of good work and noticed many employees were not happy to be there at all.

Advice to Management

I would like to suggest hiring more individuals that are motivated to work there not just because they need a job but because they enjoy the work, they want to gain promotion and have shown they can work well on a team. Maybe a one or two day testing would be useful or job shadow to see if the job fits their talents.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly, cooperative place to work. If you do your job which usually is not a hard thing to do you get along great with management. If you need time off they are usually more than willing to help you out.

    Cons

    I can't really say anything was a con for me while I worked there. I had a great time and got along with almost anyone I came into contact with.


  2. "I was bullied, disrespected and retaliated against by Management for making "constructive suggestions""

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Walmart is a large, very profitable company that employe millions of "Associates". The company was founded on "Respect for the Individual". Sam Walton believed in listening to the Associates because they were on the floor in contact with the customers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, since Sam Walton's death the company has gone steadily downhill. Walmart will break laws with impunity e.g. $24 million in bribes to government officials in Mexico to buy zoning permits.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the principles that Sam Walton founded the company on.
