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

Pros

Not hard work really overall.

Cons

I was told many different ways to do one job. If you weren't doing it they way of whichever manager walked up, they would say you were wrong.
Also while being trained, I was told they were sticking me with someone for 5 minutes and they never came back for me!

Advice to Management

Get together and figure it out.

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

    Pros

    Awesome corporate culture and years of experience in the home office.

    Cons

    Hard transition if you are not from the South. Moved from west coast and had to get used to the different way people communicate.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take risks, especially with the MLP's. The more homogeneous the group, the worse it will be for the company. Diversity of thought is just as important as ethnic diversity.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The management at my store is helpful and I really enjoy my work.

    Cons

    The pay is so bad that most of us are receiving government assistance and are unable to get off. The distribution center starts the associates out at $17/hr and is still Walmart Corp. It wouldn't hurt them to give all hourly associates enough of a raise that they could survive, about $3/hr.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on what you say you are going to do and everyone needs to be in the same book if not on the same page.
