Redo the company structure. There needs to be more associates on floor to assist customers. More customers = more profit.

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

    Pros

    Meeting new people and creating friendships!

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid. You will work crazy hours and do the job of several people without the pay. The hire you part-time but work you full time with no benefits! Managment is never around to help when you need them the most and therefore creates a chaotic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Support the employees, praise them often for the hard work the do, and give rewards when possible.
