Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Salaries are only average and certainly not industry leading.

Cons

Terrible insurance benefits, incredibly overbearing micro-management, inherent high-stress liability, holiday-weekend-night scheduling, extremely high volume, harsh punishment attitude of management, longevity highly questionable.

Advice to Management

Provide state of the art equipment, improve your insurance packages, overhaul your harsh micromanagement methods, RIF top-heavy administration, improve your training, provide adequate support personnel, refrain from threatening your employees,
