I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I am grateful to have a job that allows me the luxury to support my family. My pay is decent but not enough for all that I go through. The company talks a good game but lacks the ability to put their money where their mouth is.

Cons

I just can't believe that the Walton's are among the wealthiest people in the world and they choose to let their hourly associates live in poverty and pay so little that the associates have to get support from the government in order to survive. I feel embarrassed sometimes that I am witness to this horrible reality and can't do much about it. I do give some of my money when I see certain associates really struggling but I'm am not rich by any means.

Advice to Management

Enforce the work/life balance plan. In my store it has never happened and my Manager will never do it unless he is forced because he feels that the managers will get disconnected. I will tell you that they are getting disconnected just by the resentment building up that they are treated so poorly.
