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

    Pros

    Looking back on working with Walmart I can say I learned not only so much about how a Fortune 1 or Fortune 2 company is run, but also about myself, both the positives and negatives. The management is great as giving feedback on how to improve your own skills. I also thought the Carnegie courses they offered salaried associates were a great benefit. Make no mistake if you are looking for a cushy 9-5 type of job, this is...

    Cons

    The major problem I see is the lack of quality of the coding preformed. If you look at "The Joel Test: 12 Steps to Better Code" (Google "Joel Test" to see the list) Walmart probably only hits 3-4 points out of 12. (I had a software development position, and this is the part I know best, so I am speaking here to those who want to work in the IT division of Walmart) Because Walmart is so project-oriented (get the project...

    Advice to Management

    Please work on improving the quality of the software components that are rolled out, even if this causes a deadline to be missed.

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Strives for excellence; expects the best out of you. Flexible hours. After 10 years of working for Walmart you will have learned a plethora of information, on and off the information. You will have grown. Culturally diverse, you will work with people all around the world. You will be on a team of people who are very much like your family. Integrity is important to this company. You will be kindly corrected for your mistakes...

    Cons

    If you are from a different location in the United States, you will be expected to work in Bentonville. Now, Bentonville is not a bad place to raise your family. It is large and you will want to go see your family but there are endless hours. After about three to five years, unless you are leaving the country, you are expected to be reachable. The culture is changing a little because of corporate laws. Also, make sure...

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Lots of technologies are being used and you are open to explore and learn! So I would say this is a good company to start with where you get lots of exposure to technology!

    Cons

    There are no hard deadlines for projects, and there was no rush! The location is pretty okay, like a village!

    Advice to Management

    Hard deadlines would be good!

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

      Pros

      Working with some dope technology (electrode) I also work with some really smart people JK is definitely moving the company in the right direction. I can’t believe some of the stories I hear from the Bentonville people what they used to have to deal with. New bonus incentive means I can get a 35% bonus for my annual bonus Even though Walmart is a huge company, generally you work on smaller projects so it’s nice in that...

      Cons

      I work with some absolute morons. Idk if it’s because of the location, I’ve heard it is harder for WM to attract the best talent to Bentonville so maybe that’s why. Don’t be fooled in recruiting. Unless a recruiter specifically tells you something and it’s written down, don’t trust anyone. I had two alumni from my college who straight up lied to me in the recruiting process. Not sure where else to go if I leave Walmart...
