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

    Pros

    I had 7 areas I took care of and was in a new store. It was a great environment and I would suggest it to anyone.

    They didn't pay well and always wanted to change your hours around. If you like to travel around with your family only would this then be a good idea.

    Take better care of your employees so they will stay around and grow with your corporation and help put a better face on the company as a whole.
