    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I learned alot in my position at Walmart, but I was lucky enough to have a supervisor that trained me well and gave me many opportunities to learn in different parts of the store.

    Cons

    Walmart has changed over the years, hiring less and working its employees harder and harder. They set unrealistic goals for many of the positions without the necessary tools, training or manpower, to accomplish them.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to learn the positions in the various departments for which you are in charge. If you don't know all of the responsibilities of the employee's, then you can't constructively lead them.
