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

Pros

Constantly adding new projects and tasks to keep you busy
Decent pay (over minimum in my case)
Management is friendly and everyone's smiling

Cons

Additional training (CBLS) weren't always the greatest way to spend company time
Management doesn't give you advanced warning of your performance
Team-oriented projects seemed to target the wrong skill set

Advice to Management

Be more open and honest with how you feel about your employees. Try one-on-one sessions and discussing areas of improvement with employess, instead of a group basis with no targeted areas.
