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

    Pros

    Their 2 month training program is fun but then it rapidly goes down hill!! What they teach you in school is nothing like the REAL STORES!

    Cons

    When Sam Walton died, so did his company. Management fights with each other. They make constant derogatory statements to associates. The "open door" policy does not work. "Respect for the Individual" is dead. It's like working in a sweat shop! VERY long hours, hard on your body and no time to stop and eat as there is usually no one else on the floor. RUN AWAY FROM WALMART!! EVERY STORE IS THE SAME. IT'S A SLOW... PAINFUL DEATH!! RUN - RUN - RUN!

    Advice to Management

    Deflate your puffed up power hungry heads and treat people with dignity and respect! No one died and made you Mr/Ms WALMART!! When Sam Walton died, so did his company.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    easy job if you know anything about working a cash register, you meet some neat people.

    Cons

    rude management, did not care about employees, also your feet hurt so bad when you have to stand on them the whole shift.

    Advice to Management

    treat your lower level employees with respect, some of those people are in college pursuing a higher education and could one day be your boss..

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They have great benefits and do good teambuilding excersizes. They do offer incredible benefits and starting wages that do make them competitive that way. They also do promote from withen, you can go from someone who puts products on the shelves to being a manager.

    Cons

    They can be very click orientated and are not as safety concience in some areas that need improvement. I was threatened with loosing my job because i was making sure people where safe and i was a Safty inspector. I did take that to the store manager and it was addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Although Walmart does listien try to listien a bit more and crack down on nepotism that is an issue.
