hire freshers by sharing proper Job Description, not the generalised one across all teams.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for advancement for women, work-life balance is sometimes tough but is better than most large retail companies, good culture of learning and developing skills. This is a rare company where the results you can demonstrate are always going to be more important than a degree or diploma.

    Cons

    Company is overly focused on promoting women and has been since 2011. There is nothing wrong with women in leadership and executive roles, but working here it will become painfully obvious that the company is pandering primarily to women and to a lesser extent young people. Pay for management is in line with other large retailers, but a bit low, and for store managers is exceptionally high... which will make it infuriating if you have a boss collecting six figures and beyond to check out completely for weeks at a time. Incentives to work harder are piss-poor if you are a department manager and have no desire to move into a salaried role - 50 cents is the best annual raise you can get even if you are the best in the world at your job. A useless pylon gets 30 cents.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your store managers and district managers to the same level of conduct standards as you do the associates in your store, and offer greater incentives for the hourly people to achieve.
