Approves of CEO

I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Salary and the opportunity to interact with great associates. Ability to grow your career to a certain extent

Cons

Open door policy only applies to associates up to a certain pay grade. New practice of hiring people from outside who consistently try to implement their own strategies rather than corporate direction, and their willingness to dispose of experienced talent rather than learning from them.

Advice to Management

The dedicated management associates running your stores are the ones who receive the least amount of respect and are listened to the least.

    Pros

    -Easy to forge lasting friendships with other associates.
    -Company matching 401k plan up to 6% with 100% vesting.

    Cons

    -Low wages with the maximum raise (nearly impossible to get) being 60 cents annually.
    -Hours are not as flexible as they claim.
    -Management retaliation if they find out you went over their head.
    -Lack of communication between associates and upper management results in unfavorable work conditions.
    -Favoritism and "office politics" play too much of a role in advancement. Not as fair as they claim.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates and treat them like human beings.
