    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with the public and having opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    Management could improve on their actual management duties and be willing to learn from what others have to offer to the workplace as well.

    Advice to Management

    I believe some managers could use more training and lessons to be able to perform their jobs aa they are supposed to.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. The people who aren't ignorant were generally nice to work with. I was able to live off of the wages while in college.

    Cons

    Pay, clueless managment, no benefits for the majority of full-time workers. I did not work full time as I was in school, but I was reminded on a daily basis how Walmart treats it's hourly, non-management associates. These people, many of them elderly, break their back to do a good job and make money, yet they are constantly reminded that their jobs are in jeopardy. One woman in particular was diagnosed with cancer, but...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like human beings. Just because someone is working for $8.00 an hour does not mean they are worthless. The good ones are only trying to make a living.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    I have no complains against Wal-mart itself. It is a job and I get a paycheck every two weeks. Some people don't even have a job, so I conceder myself very lucky that I have a job.The first 5 years I was very lucky had good raises and merit raises for doing a good job, than wal-mart polocies started changing. I am just glad I have a job.

    Cons

    Job advancements unfairness, favoritism between management and hourly workers, no communiction between management, ass kissing gets you advanced faster than hard work. management don't really know who the real good workers are in their shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to favoritism among your management team, some hourly workers become friends with assistants and favoritism becomes an issue.
