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

    Pros

    Learned how to use new tools, learned inquiry and reports bases off of the store performance, nice managers, fun Black Friday experience.

    Cons

    Terrible and lazy supervisor. As an unloader, we were the last people the managers cared about but when they need something stock or need carts, we are the first people they go for, even if there's people on the floor who aren't unloading a truck like us. Bad communication, often kept us stocking past 1 am because they didn't have enough people that night, which isn't our problem.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your younger workers whom have potential to be the next store manager and keep your worker happy.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible and allows for employees personal development.

    Cons

    So straight on their compensation scheme. Usually, bottom of what the competition offers their employees for the same position.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good work in hiring the mass of people other companies cannot afford to hire. But always keep in mind that, like the company executives, the employees at the lower end of the wrung also have growing economic challenges that require increases in their income.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There's no Pros for working in this Company

    Cons

    Number ONE slavery job in US, no Bonuses at all, Easy to fire for no reason, if you work there for many years and you get good raise, they do their best to fire you, they choose a suspension as a way to kick you out of work to not give you a chance to apply for unemployment; if you suppose to work full time, they cut your hours, also, they take you to work everywhere, no matter what position you have.

    Advice to Management

    Too much slavery, that's why you have so many lawsuits against you, because some dictator managers have the power to oppress employees, no control over your manager, I've seen people suffering, almost same way in the third world, no difference between slavery job in walmart and others in 15th century, maybe it's worse.
