Pros

Pay is reasonable if you live nearby. Co-workers mostly very nice. Company policies seem fair. Almost all customer service managers work really hard to help you do your job. Management speaks to employees in respectful manner--even if topic is negative. Ample breaks provided.

Cons

When you manage to maintain a pleasant professional attitude with customers but have to observe others employees be unpleasant without consequences. Irregular hours and difficulty arranging ahead of time for needed time off or switching hours.

Advice to Management

Ability to request 1/2 day off rather than whole day only would help with scheduling flexibility and be an acknowledgment of family life, which Wal Mart supposedly cares about. Overall, I felt and noticed a pervasive underlying atmosphere of fear at my workplace, expecially when there was a change in upper management pending.

    Pros

    Well, you are not likely to ever get laid off. *lol* The insurance is decent I guess. There is plently of room for advancement if that's what you are looking for...

    Cons

    It's unskilled labor. A dead end job. Because it's such a huge company, it's difficult to "stand out" from the crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more money! Empower your hourly supervisors and give these same people the authority that should go wirh that authority.

    Pros

    worlds largest company. Probley won't get laid off.

    Cons

    understaffed, wan'ts everbody to "do more with less", new structure is a joke; department managers over many departments, understaffing leads to poor instock and poor customer service.
    No set schedule. No set days off. Different every week.

    Advice to Management

    Put department managers back under smaller departments and put them back in charge of thier own bins and the IMS process. Get rid of IMS associates. They make to many mistakes and create too many problems . Also get rid of the ZMS's. ZMS position is a useless position. Too many cheifs and not enough indians. Oh also the new "routines" is a joke also. get a clue. Walmart is trying to be more efficient but instead it is ruining the company and customers are going elsewere to shop.
