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

    Pros

    The other people working at my store are amazing. They are the only reason I haven't worked harder to find a different job. There are also a lot of different shifts you can work so it's good for single parents or people in school because they will work around your other obligations in most cases.

    Cons

    You work too hard for too little. You are paid barely over minimum wage to start with and they really work you. I and many of my coworkers are often thrown into departments we have no knowledge of and are not told or shown how to do the work. They also cut hours unexpectedly and drastically.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. One person can't do everything-don't expect so much and understand that your employees are only human.
