I worked at Walmart as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Workers at the very least gets paid...

Cons

Minimum wages, poor training, no room to grow, and they have what you call an in-direct brainwashing mechanism in the form of "videos and mottos."

Advice to Management

Show enthusiasm. Encourage for the better. Move up your hardworking individuals as no one wants to work their ass off and get no where. This one of the reason for everything wrong with walmart and the way people sees this retail business as a whole. It's very degrading to work for walmart. It's time to strive for a new reform.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity, particularly for those early in their careers. Due to its size and scope, there are opportunities in a myriad of areas and they encourage associates to proactively manage their careers. All you need to do is convince the hiring manager that you can do the job.

    Cons

    Not really a "con" but if you want to advance your career it requires the same degree of effort and networking as a traditional job search. Visibility is important. Also, it can be challenging for newly hired mid-to-late career associates to manage their careers as "easily" as early-career associates
