"High stress environment with little direction"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - TLE Bay Supervisor
Former Employee - TLE Bay Supervisor

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

Pros

There are numerous opportunities for advancement if you can break through the politics. It can be rewarding work at times.

Cons

Like I said in the title there is little direction or encouragement from management. If you can break through and be self taught you can succeed.

Advice to Management

Spend more time mentoring and developing those who have a desire to succeed.
