I have been working at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I have been with walmart for a few months now, and im loving it there. I work in overnight frozen/dairy, and though it may not pay well, its better pay than my last job. Cant really complain much.
Friendly management, hard working employees, and stocks are mostly up.

Cons

Some dont follow the book when it comes to the rules and safty, inventory is a nightmare, and its almost impossible to move up unless you work so hard your body hits the floor.

Advice to Management

Give career opportunities not only to the overly worked, but to those that actually CARE for the company, its future, and its operations.

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

    Pros

    I work with Walmart because of it's core beliefs. Customer Service, Respect for the Individual and Striving for Excellence. Wal-Mart knows the importance of good associates and is consistent with their pay and benefits structure. People wanting to further their career have a lot of opportunities with this company and can plan the route to best take to achieve their goals.

    Cons

    Third shift positions are difficult for most for work life balance due to shift change. Most of the hourly positions should be full time positions also due to it is hard to hire people for this shift and to retain them. Pay to help with the cost of living has not gone up for a while and the expense of living has definitely gone up.

    Advice to Management

    Third shift 4 days on and 4 days off for management is good to help with work life balance. Some store managers need to get their managers out of the store in a timely manner rather than keeping them for a couple of extra hours after they work a 12 and a half hour shift. Third shift managers are also held more accountable than those on days. Days time managers need to have completion of tasks expectations also. Management working at length for the company that wants to take an hourly position at the end of their career should have a better pay than the structure of what the company currently offers for those positions. This should take into account total years with the company and what pay they would have if they had been hourly during that time for the duration.

    Cons

    pay could be better, some people who have worked at the store for a long time can be very closed minded
