Pros

They were very flexible with my school schedule and when I left the company, the people in my department actually threw a party for me. It was shocking! Wal-Mart seemed to be very concerned about making sure employees took their breaks (not something I was used to). They also paid well at the time.

Cons

The only thing that I would say was a downside of working at Wal-Mart was telling people that you worked at Wal-Mart. Other than that it was good.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Its a job, more than minimum wage, fun coworkers, experience, motivation to do better, easy to find someone to take shift, hour lunch

    Cons

    people get paid based on time they have worked here, so if someone doesn't do his or her work but has been there for 5 years, they get paid more than you. Unfair management. One person will say to do something one way, then another member of management will say it is wrong. Management doesn't work together so it is hard to understand what to get done. A former member of management used to text/talk on her cell phone in the back room while employees unloaded trucks. She would stand there and yell hurry up but wouldn't offer help. Management discloses other associate's information even though it is against policy. Some department managers frame associates.

    Advice to Management

    Look else where for a job. Or maybe just a different store. This particular walmart has terrible managers. There were a few good ones but the majority of them don't care about the little people.
