I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Salary, promotional opportunities, bonuses, skills taught

Cons

Life/work balance is horrible. Retaliation is rampant. Some stores have a threatening/hostile work environment.

Advice to Management

Go back to treating your employees like a family. Friendlier, happier atmosphere can go a long way, and will spread like wild fire.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for career development. Most associates were great to work with.

    Cons

    Company has lost direction. Only hiring temporary or part-time help and not enough of it. Huge move away from excellent customer service caused by shortage of help. Hourly associate turnover is horrible. Lack of teamwork at management level (everyone out for themselves only). Everyone cheats the processes to meet operational metrics rather letting the programs run the way they are supposed to run.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the company Mr. Sam founded. Take care of your associates first. Put more effort into hiring quality hourly associates and work harder to retain them.
