    Pros

    A lot of work hours. A plus for me.
    %10 discount

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement.
    Look. Their not the antichrist or anything. But if you go to a local Walmart store and look around you'll notice that none of the employees there look happy.
    The company is fine. The lifestyle that they promote, however, is quite a bit on the oppressive style.
    If you need a job fast, go apply there. Theyll give you a job.
    Just don't let the place bring you down. It's just a job.
    Don't take it completely seriously.

    Advice to Management

    None. They are not the reason why things are the way they are.

    Pros

    Good pay for the job, compared to Target and the like. It is a big store, so you can move around if you get bored, though this is NOT a quick process. Because WalMart has so much scrutiny placed upon them, they are VERY strict about breaks. You will get reprimanded if you don't take one. You can apply for days off way in advance in the computer system, in fact you have to because the schedule is made 3 weeks in advance.

    Cons

    For performance evals seems like you always just get the standard raise, in my three years I never got the extra bonus. The biggest con, however, is the people you both serve and work with. They can be terrible. In general, the older the person was I was working with the better. As far as customers, I'm glad I'm easy-going. There was only one time I got truly pissed off.

    Advice to Management

    Make the opportunities to make more money more palpable and linked to real-world performance.
