    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 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.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours
    Cafeteria Onsite
    Relaxed Dress Code

    Cons

    90 Days for Benefits
    No Holiday Pay - You have to use PTO
    Immature Management
    1 year for employer contributions to 401k
    Shuts off benefits day of term (voluntary or involuntary)

    Advice to Management

    My suggestion is for some of the management to actually take some business and legal courses. The company has been cited for being unethical in the past and I tried to give them a chance but the employees/“associates” are NOT your friends. Most companies will allow you to use your benefits for the remainder of the month in a corporate setting. Walmart acts like a bitter divorce who wants to see you hurt and will cut off everything including communication. They also have characteristics of a psychopaths and instability because they’d rather cover up their wrong doing (even if that means getting rid of a department or changing business plans out of no where). Please take note from other large corporations. Your employees/associates ARE YOUR BRAND not just the vendors whom you do business with. Happy employees equal happy business interactions. The Home Office was supposed to be like a corporate office but it’s ran just like a store. Also note, when you do someone dirty you must pay them to not bad mouth your company NOT go around threatening them or trying to cause harm. There are laws that protect people from your unethical staff and poor judgement.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 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.
