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

Pros

I worked nights as a stocker. During my time here, I was trained to drive a forklift and became responsible for unloading trucks. I loved my managers and coworkers.

Cons

Advancement seems to be based more upon who has been there the longest, and not based on aptitude. I was competing for a promotion who a man who did not even want the job. He just happened to have 5 years seniority on me. He ended up being demoted after 6 months.

Advice to Management

Nurture your employees. Give them the tools to improve themselves and advance, instead of being afraid that they will threaten your own job. Managers are supposed to nurture and help their subordinates become the best employees they can be.

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

    Pros

    It's steady work unless they've decided to cut hours that quarter. There's the chance to bonus every quarter.

    Cons

    There are never enough employees to satisfy the demands of your salaried members of management, from assistant to shift manager to co manager, store manager and even district. You are pulled in 20 different directions every day and held accountable for each direction given to you by a different member of salaried management. They begrudge you your breaks and very rarely allow you to even complete your computerized training.

    Advice to Management

    Accept responsibility for your decisions and stop trying to pass the buck on your own choices.
