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

Pros

It is fairly easy to get promotions at walmart. It is very easy to get hired in. You gain experience in a work environment. Benefits, Bonuses and SOME paid Holidays.

Cons

I've found that working at Walmart is not only alot more stressful than need be but it is a breeding ground for rumors inappropriate behavior from ALL employees. The two hardest jobs in the store are the least paying jobs. It seems like the higher up you get in the company, the more you make and the less you have to do. Often, managment is too busy on their phones and goofing around with each other and other associates to be bothered with work related problems. You have to work for Walmart for a year before you get healthcare. You have to work for Walmart for 2 years before you get any vacation time.

Advice to Management

Respect your associates more. Interact and help your associates. Get your hands dirty. Don't pick favorites. Don't bring your personal problems to work, come in with a good attitude and treat your associates fairly.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you start as a salaried manager can be a decent job company has alot of customers.

    Cons

    even with a masters degree unless you start as a salaried member of management it is nearly impossible to make more than 25000 a year. Every year the company reduces more benefits from employees. Starting wages continue to drop and raises have become less and more scattered. Walmart has chosen to close a store that became unionized rather than give employees the benefits of a union. There management system has been made by their corporate office and will not except any comments or corrections. They will go as far as performing illegal actions to get rid of an employee if they cost the company money such as disability workman compensation etc..

    Advice to Management

    Notice before Sam Walton died the company made much more had happy employees and better security. Instead of cutting every dollar through any means understand happy employees make a good company and help stop loss due to better security. Take care of your employees they might seem disposable but if they are treated as such they will make the company become disposable. If you think I'm wrong just look at all the class action lawsuits walmart has.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free Food during Christmas and Thanksgiving.
    Profit sharing
    10% Discount after 90 days employment
    You'll see almost everyone you know in town personally

    Cons

    Low Pay You only get one raise per year. If you ask for one don't count on getting one

    *Severely* Understaffed. Not enough people to cover

    No Fulltime work. Last couple of years. Fulltimers who quit have never been replaced but only with part-time workers.

    Policy's are not all ways followed as stated.

    Impressing Wall-Street is a priority then the overall well being of it's workers

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your critics rather then avoid them. It will help out in the long run.
