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

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, great at developing skills, great place to learn a skill and grow your resume, or grow with the company.

    Cons

    Understaffing issues negatively affects all parts of their business. However, Walmart has increased their minimum hourly rate with hopes to attract more committed employees, and retain better employees.

    Advice to Management

    At the store level, any time you are called in to over ride an associate following company policy, make sure that you first make it clear to the associate and customer that they were doing their job and that you are making an exception.

    It is a great stepping stone to learn how to run a profitable and healthy business. This position teaches everything from financial management to people skills and so much more.

    Cons

    Multitasking in an environment where all the tools and resources you need to successfully run your business makes daily operations difficult to achieve in the time expectations given by the company.

    Pros

    It looks very good to other retailers that you can survive for 7+ Years in Wal-Mart and survive. That is why I started here.

    Cons

    There is always a higher workload than what your team can handle. It is very difficult to keep processes running when there is not enough staffing. It is the biggest demoralizer.

    Advice to Management

    I am upper Management. I feel like The Store Managers only care about Numbers and run us Assistants to the Ground.

    Pros

    Great advancement opportunities! Not a job for the faint of heart, or those thinking they can skate through it. Hard work is required and rewarded. Set a goal, work hard for it, and you have the potential to enjoy a long-lasting and well paid career. Positive attitude a must. It's retail. No better or no worse than any other retail environment. The job is what you make it.

    Cons

    Like any other retail environment, lack of good help will make it difficult to complete daily tasks. You will have to finds ways to rise above this. Ability to constantly refocus and redirect yourself is a must. Some days this can be taxing and exhausting. You'll need to have an abundance of common sense. Training is often non-existent and you'll have many 'sink-or-swim' opportunities present themselves. Set your mind to push through them and learn from them, and you'll grow.
    Work/life balance is typical retail. You will work all holidays and most weekends. Expect it. If you cannot accept this reality, don't apply for this work.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time and attention to your talent, especially the young ones. They are the future of your business. These folks will work a lot better for you if you TEACH them. Take the time to get to know them.
    Corporate leaders and senior management are out of touch with what goes on inside the stores. Processes are beautiful and, in theory, are amazing. BUT, they are not executable inside the stores. One shift sets the tone and successfulness of the next. When one shift cannot execute processes, the next shift will fail. Come inside and work with us for more than a day or two. We work hard at TRYING to execute your plan. We honestly wish we could be more successful.
