I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Wal-mart has so many career choices within the company all you need to do is take advantage of these oppurtunites

Cons

Only closed on Christmas Day!

Advice to Management

I hear alot of complaints from associates and DM about being held accountable for notes not being done, to many outs in their areas,freight not binned,just everyday routines,but if they deligate these tasks and they follow up and they are still not getting done then that person should be held accountable not the person that deligated it. They also complain about having to help in other areas then still have to make sure that their areas are complete and now have to do their daily tasks in less time and if not then they are held accountable. They want to be able to come to work make sure that their areas are up to standards then they have no problem going to help out in other areas. They also feel that alot of associates are in the wrong area, or they don't like that area. we need to put associates in areas where they can excell not fail. Every associate has their own strenghts we just need to find what it is.And yes everybody needs to work toghether. Team Work!!! FIRED UP!!!!!!

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I get a paycheck
    Insurance is good for catastrophic accidents
    Work life balance has gotten better
    Cost of living in the area is low

    Cons

    Paycheck is not what it should be
         Base pay is low.
         Annual increase is minimal usually not even close to inflation
         Promotions are not based on merit. They are based on if direct management likes you and on diversity score. If you don't know what diversity score is look up reverse discrimination.
         Bonus is random and can never be over 80-85 percent based on new criteria. Before this was listed as a selling point to make up for the below average pay, now it no longer makes up the gap.

    Insurance is very expensive for preventative care. It really is only good for major accidents.
    Work life balance can be non existent depending on which team you are on.
    Management never follows up on issues/concerns raised by associates.
    Retention has become an issue in ISD. People are leaving like rats fleeing a sinking ship.
    If you like to do the work yourself go somewhere else. If you like managing contractors who do the work for you come to walmart ISD.

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

    Pros

    You work with some pretty cool people. Electronics gets paid more than other areas in the store. The management is pretty understanding and very helpful.

    Cons

    The customers suck and it gets real old dealing with them. Also the responsibility and task load can be a little bit overwhelming at times.

    Advice to Management

    Get out on the floor more to get a better understanding of how things work.
