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

Pros

The best aspect of working for Walmart is definitely the people you get to work with. Most of the employees share a positive vibe and view the whole job with a sense of humor.

Cons

Low salary is the most negative aspect of employment with Walmart. I was not able to support myself with near full time hours at the base pay. The pay may be alright for a young adult going through school and still living with parents or maybe even living with several roommates, but definitely unable to go solo.

Advice to Management

Have faith in your employees, learn and respect their individuality

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interacting with the public, clear cut policies, safe practices

    Cons

    Minimum wage pay, terrible health insurance, no paid vacations, intense anti-union culture (with anti-union propaganda videos and everything), Walmart encourages workers to talk to management about potential great ideas for the company but doesn't reward the worker once their ideas are implemented, stores are chronically understaffed, not a environmentally sustainable business model.

    Advice to Management

    Pay living wages, increase whole operation's environmental sustainability until you reach zero impact, invest in providing a high quality of life for your workers so people stop boycotting your company

    You should watch who you put as the head manger of certain stores
