    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!

    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!!!

    Opportunity to grow within the company gives way to advancement for everyone. Walmart continues to advance with the times with technology given to the stores to help support the process.

    No Work life balance for Store level Management & no consistent expectations with multiple people giving different opinions on how things should be done.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency at all levels is a challenge. Many opinions and thoughts from multiple leaders. OBW, is it truly supported?

    Pros

    People I work with, serving customers being able to help others and teaching.

    Cons

    Corporate not putting back into the employs, giving market position to those that have no skill running a market or putting them in place using the buddy system. To unstable, to many changes at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Your workers are your front line, they give the experience to the customer of being a Walmart shopper. They need to be taken care of. The Bell Curve does not work. Not all ASM are solid, some are exceeds and others are roll models, these do not get handed out in are market.

    Pros

    Overall it is a positive experience. I enjoy working with people as well as buying and selling merchandise. The work environment is good and the pay is above average.

    Cons

    Biggest issues I have is upper management not realizing that work ethic is not the same everywhere. Scheduling is a prerry ing issue with lack of coverage on some days and we are not supposed to make adjustments to the schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you people. They work in the situation every day.
