    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Meeting new people!! Learn something new everyday!! Family company!! Being able to shop after work without making another stop on way home.

    Cons

    Too many changes being made. Wal-mart is no longer what Mr Sam started it to be.. if the rumors are true, they will be closing stores at night soon, they will lose money and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates!! Some managers before that becaus they have the title how that associate feels doesn’t matter. It does!

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

    Pros

    Tremendous variety in your day-to-day work, always something new to learn, opportunities to promote, genuinely good people working in these stores, and in my judgment the company is making good investments to remain relevant to customers for the future.

    Cons

    Culture and leadership styles are not at all consistent across the company (it's a big company). Out in the stores/clubs, the culture is set by the store manager and market manager. If you're getting into field management, make sure you get a true sense of the culture of that market and store. Getting into the wrong store or market could make your 18-24+ month tour miserable and could ultimately slow your upward mobility.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Salary and Benefits for management

    Cons

    No work life balance (very long hours and constantly changing schedule)
    Very limited training with no tolerance for a learning curve

    Advice to Management

    Learn to work together and not just for yourselves. Myself and the hourly associates would love a united management team. It would greatly improve morale.
