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

    Pros

    Executives truly believe in customer service, they don't just pay lip service to it like so many other companies do; innovative processes; constantly changing to benefit the customer; and executives want associates engaged with the management, their tasks, and the companies future.

    Cons

    As an assistant manager the work life balance is not there. When I started the schedule was 3 twelve hour days on and 3 days off. It has changed many times over the years. The best schedule was 4 ten hour days on and 2 days off. I had a life with that schedule. Ten hours days are doable, but twelve hour days are too long to have a work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    The attendance policy for hourly associates was updated in Feb 2019. When it was updated prior to that, many of us were under the impression that once an associate hit the maximum number allowed that the home office would automatically terminate them. We liked that! Unless the system automatically terminates abusers the problem will continue. The store management team will not consistently follow the policy.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    - Opportunity to make a good end of the year bonus.

    Cons

    - Walmart used to value their management but all they do is take advantage of you and layer on more while cutting back Associates in the store. - Never a positive tour if a Market Manager or higher visits your store. All they do is beat up your store and let you know what a poor job you are doing. When the visit occurs, just know that you will be working extra hours with no recognition. - Horrible work/life balance,...

    Advice to Management

    - Bring back a rotation for Assistant Manager’s schedules. 4 on and 2 off with 2 closing shifts and 2 opening shifts. You then have some sort of work life balance while working in retail. - Upper management needs to start having positive interactions while touring stores.
