    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Business to serve in as a leader and mentor to many other employees! Being able to collaborate with other Department Managers and Associate in making decisions that would drive sales in the store!

    Cons

    Probably long hours, evenings, and working to problem solve on a consistent basis. Dealing with constructive advice and handling disciplinary actions at times.

    Advice to Management

    I’ve been in charge of a very successful business for over 19 years! I believe customer service is one key factor in growing a business! Also having integrity and great communication with other team member is the glue that holds it together!!!

    Pros

    Decent pay but you have to put in the hours. The work life balance is not bad if you learn to manage your time.

    Cons

    Communicating with associates can be tough when they are hard heads

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to put less pressure on your managers and more responsibilities to associates

    Pros

    Leadership, Bonuses, they only like to hire within a majority of the time or if you have had experience previously with Walmart

    Cons

    The hours are long but worth it when you receive you first bonus. Hardwork doesn’t always get recognized but tjar comes with most jobs

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Paid on time. Not a lot of supervision.

    Cons

    If you are not "in" you are out. Long hours off the clock. Less well trained males promoted over females. No real upward track as promised. Not enough contact with managers. Fake spirit.

    Advice to Management

    Spirit comes from feeling like a valued team member, not forced morning chants. Treat and promote people equally.
