I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, even for part-time associates. Usually great co-workers. My experience with my managers has been, I would say, 75% positive. Wal-Mart is truly a family, and they will always help you out if your family has a personal crisis. (Losing house, major illness, etc.)

Cons

Customers have a high expectancy for you. I would say it's way higher than most other retails. You will get yelled at for things you have no control over. Work load is beyond heavy at some points.

Advice to Management

Tell your associates when they do a good job, and stand behind them. Yes, the customer is sometimes right, but not always. There is nothing worse than telling a customer no because policy says that we absolutely cannot do something and the manager comes right behind you and makes you do it. I feel so belittled when that happens.

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

    No equal rights between workers.

    Pros

    The benefits I received as a worker were quite nice. It was a constant source of income. If I wanted to work more hours I was always able to which was nice.

    Cons

    Working here felt quite drab. There was no variety in the tasks I was assigned to do. Upper management often made it seem like they did not care about its workers.
