    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full time if you work overnight or are of supervisor/manager status. Discount on non-food items 10%.

    Cons

    Pay, hours, managers are the "tell you what you want to hear but never follow through" type, no meritorial raises, hard to move around in the company

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the way Sam Walton would run it, treat people as people instead of lower status

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

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment, good place to learn fast.

    Cons

    The company is better in theory than in practicality. Not realistic expectations, especially when staffing is cut.

    Advice to Management

    Being understaffed keeps moral low and does not allow for proper training. When staff are proficient, lower staff hours can be fine, but with high turn over proficiency is always lacking, thus stressing the system, which relies only on the "Lean Management" principle, where people on the boat run from one side of the boat to the other to keep it from flipping over. Plan for proper allocation of staff. It will improve moral and the customer experience, which will ultimately improve revenue. It doesn't work to stress out employees, who then have no time for customers, who then leave pissed.
