"Very low pay"

Former Employee - Certfied Pharmacy Technician

No opinion of CEO

Pros

Friendly co-workers
"We are in it together" kind of atmosphere
Overall, an interesting experience

Cons

Pay is low. It goes up in ridiculous increments of 20-25 cents (in 2005). So earning an increase of 50 cents seemed like a big deal. It felt miserable.

Lots of brainwashing. To make up for low salaries, management tries to make employees feel proud of what they do.

Advice to Management

Raising salaries would raise prices, and WM would lose its competitive edge. I think, from a non-employee point of view, management is doing the right thing trying to compensate employees with non-monetary benefits. As a former employee, I can say that a performance raise of 25 cents is insulting.

    Pros

    Worked around my school schedule
    Was coded for PT; but, made FT Hours
    Great pay( Raise every year)
    Made some great friends

    Cons

    Drama, Drama, Drama!!!
    I think the managment slept or stole their way to the top. They don't know anything!!!
    They talk to you as either they are your parent or you're slow.
    It's all about the customer, he/she could cuss you out all while your complying with company policy, but "The customer is ALWAYS RIGHT !!!"
    You do everyones job including managment but only get paid for one.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do your job and mine, then you can talk to me about my work performance

    Pros

    Job security/no layoff, several locations, inside work

    Cons

    The downside of working for Walmart is lack of adequate training for your position. Management for the most part are useless. Lack of structure

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen, learn the position you are charged to management, get a back bone. Treat people the way you would want to be treated.
