I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good benefits. Pretty good pay for this area. Good work schedules. Good people.

Cons

Tough to make production quotas. Difficult to move forward into management at the DC levels.

Advice to Management

Get to know some of the associates more, especially the ones that care about their jobs and want to move forward in their careers. Review the specs of the hiring process from within; don't just rely on "paperwork" such as resumes but to actually question and observe the ones who apply from within.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You control your own future. With hardwork and open work schedule the possibilities are endless. Paid vacations. Benefits and lots of options to choose from. 401k and stock options. Discount

    Cons

    not always staffed as well as we'd like. processes to eliminate poor workers results in a lot of unproductive time. the replenishment time on some items is a very long time. that results in out of stock which results in unhappy customers and store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck!

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Walmart as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The schedule is good as a salaried manager: 3 days on and 3 days off. 4 on 4 off if you're on nights.

    Cons

    Have to run the business per strict company guidelines. Don't have authority to control your business as you see fit. E.g.: cannot schedule over goal hours set by company, strict rules on OT, do-more-with-less expectations from Home Office.

    Advice to Management

    Efficiency is well and good, but at some point you're shooting yourself in the foot by trimming wages to make profit goals. Customers want associates to help them buy things. Fewer associates = fewer sales.
