Pros

Not many other than it gives a good base for a young person to start off of, and the people you work with are great. Depending on how well the store does you get a special amount in your check sometimes reaching $400 in certain quarters, but sometimes you only get around $60. You get holiday if you have been there 90 days.

Cons

Management Plays favorites and sometimes it seems as if home office does not care about they're employees. They deny any request to have off on saturdays. They have a knack for screwing people out of their 40 hours. They don't do well notifying people when they are elegible for health insurance. If your store remodels walmart makes the employees pay for it out of their myshare. They don't do well when it comes to letting people have a flexible schedule. Sometimes you will find yourself doing things that are not in your job code. You work all holidays. Absoloutely no over time.

Advice to Management

Start caring about your employees and make sure that the store managers are fit for the job before you give them it.

    Pros

    Close to home, didn't have transportation at the time. Hired on the spot during downsizing from former employer.

    Cons

    Believed the advertising - not a family atmosphere in my experience. High turnover caused problems with schedules at times. Raises -- few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Higher wages, better schedules

    Pros

    Wal Mart is not a bad place to work the sechudle system needs to be adjusted example working till 11:00 pm then have to be back in at 6:30 am not too happy sometimes (lack of sleep) No overtime allowed and if you are close to going over 38 hours they tell you to take a longer lunch or supper or come in a little later the next day but make sure you call the 800 number to get excused

    Cons

    the same as what is posted above

    Advice to Management
