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

Pros

The individual store managers are good people with now real training. They are excepted to do so much with little help or support.

Cons

They are the bully on the block. Most corp. employees have lived in AR all of there lives. Walmart is the largest employer for the State. Which gives them full control over keeping everyone in line. Walmart lives by a different set of rules. Not what is fair or legal by the EEOC, Labor board or any government agency for that matter. They have a (20 plus) deep group of attorneys, to keep people stuck in the court system if they fight back. In addition, these practices go on with there vendor partners as well.

They are always spying on their employees thru blackberry's, lap tops, cameras, video and recordings located in home office as well as retail stores. They hire former FBI, Security Security ex-milatry people to uncover any problems with anyone, if they are falsely accused of a issue. Often they set them, to element them from the company, if need be.

92% of outside employees leave once their contracts are up with Walmart. The only people that stay are the people that live in AR. and have no where else to work. Horrible place to live and work. I can not wait until my contract is up, to leave myself. I personally Watched them destroy the careers of many people.

Advice to Management

Quit lying to yourself about your scholarships for education for employees. You never had the funding for this but promote it. Your biz, benefits, ROI etc. (shareholder) numbers are false. You treat people very unfairly. Your marketing
group liquid really fights hard to make you look good. But the real truth always comes out.

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

    Pros

    Stability, benefits, pay, culture

    Company is currently growing creating easier upward movement.

    Cons

    The problems associated with retail are the same with most companies. Some times of the year are great and others are awful.

    Starting of with any company doesn't pay well.. Once at the salary level it is pretty decent in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Dont chase numbers, follow processes and measure success.
