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

Pros

I worked at a Wal-Mart in a college town. Most of the employees that I worked with were my age and we became good friends. The pay was good (plus our store achieved high numbers that resulted in strong profit sharing), the clientele were pleasant and hours were extremely flexible. Management was also easy to get along with and very approachable.

Cons

This is probably not the case for most Wal-Marts nationwide. I briefly worked at another location which was poorly run and serviced mainly difficult clientele. Retail is a difficult industry to work in for long periods of time, but there are worse than Wal-Mart.

Advice to Management

Make it easier to move to different departments. It keeps the job interesting and prevents long-term employees from constantly feeling passed over.

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

    Pros

    Job was simple and easy
    You spend the first 5 days learning from first a computer to actually watching cashier at work until you are operating a cash register.

    Cons

    I was told I would be hired on by the store, then I was let go by corporate.
    All of the cash registers needed to be repaired and updated. The store I was in had just been redone 2yrs ago and there where missing keys on some registers and just plain broken registers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hate the people under you so much.
