    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!!!

    Pros

    Diverse People, Job Security, busy atmosphere, community involvement.

    Cons

    To many changes at once, poor HR dept, poor talent pool, disconnected exterior management, poor communication, unreasonable expectations,

    Advice to Management

    Stop implementing multiple changes at once hoping one of them is an improvement. Its hard to tell whats successful if there are 10 new programs being implemented at the same time. Entry level talent needs time to adapt.

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

    Pros

    The job will kill you.

    Cons

    Everything your a number nothing more. They have an open door policy but the doors always closed. In 17 yrs with company I discovered you give your life to the company and get no support.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care and learn to do a real investigation instead of a hear say one.

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

    Pros

    A high volume, high demand environment is a good place to gain experience.

    Cons

    Job reduction/elimination resulting in very low job security and increasing workload.

    Advice to Management

    Bring integrity back to the open door policy. Increase salesfloor associates to elevate customer service and deter theft. Return focus on theft, it is at increasingly high levels in high shrink stores. Too much focus away from theft and only on processes.
