    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Enjoyed working independently and training other Assistants. This position requires a self starter and computer knowledge of Microsoft programs such as Excel, PowerPoint, Word, etc.

    Cons

    Recent changes such as restructure of the market team can be stressful and if you aren't lucky enough to be in a high value market, your position could be eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Please turn in your collectibles on time and as requested. As an Administrative Assistant we have deadlines to get your information turned in to upper levels of management.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    They pay well and everyone is so kind. I truly loved my job and what I did. I was 110% Walmart.

    Cons

    They restructure way too much. You never know if you're going to have a job or not. I do believe that the folks at store level are the backbone of the company. More attention needs to be paid to them instead of all the upper management making the big bucks.

    Advice to Management

    Either stop over hiring to avoid all the layoffs and then 6 months later rehiring. Makes no sense.

    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    Above average salary for members of management. Parking.

    Cons

    I worked with Walmart for 3 years in Chinatown, Washington, DC and unfortunately the things heard about Walmart in news/media is very true, Unfair treatment of employees, poor work life balance, office not all inclusive, management annual bonuses is my salary for entire year. At will employment is fully engaged at this location. Union representation is truly needed just so that fair treatment is extended to all. I...

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Walmart part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    you get to met new peoples everyday ,not one day is the same. whether it the manager now knowing what's going on to where the cashier an csm have no clue where there are to be, but at the end it all work outs with one another helping the other to get back on track

    Cons

    when there is a conflict in management you will be in between. when upper manager tell you to do some, they will not be in fault, you will, you will get the write up and the manager will get off free with no coaching.

    Advice to Management

    management need to take responsible for there own action, I know you is trying to make a customer happy but when you put the cashier or who ever in the middle of it, it is not fair because the cashier will get more heat then a manager will

    Nice 401K plan (6% match), free training classes you can take (and get paid for), relatively flexible in terms of upward mobility if you're good at what you do.

    Cons

    No windows anywhere. Parking always a hassle. Too much blue. Terrible medical insurange, no vision insurance. Buildings spread out and traffic is always bad.
