    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!!!

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

    Pros

    - Hired into management off the street, including a month of paid management training at Walmart Academy.
    - Good salary for little-to-no experience.
    - Apparently most growth comes from within - I am an anomaly in this respect.
    - My store management was fantastic - very fair and always had my back.
    - My store was also not pie in the sky re: management - I was on the floor 24/7 and stocked shelves most nights.

    Cons

    - Very negative associates (comes with the territory).
    - Arbitrary processes - every time you made a plan, it was ruined in a matter of hours.
    - Higher ups were unfair and unrealistically demanding - constant pressure to perform at a pace that was inaccessible and consequent store-wide depression when we did not reach the mark.
    - Unbelievably inconsistent schedule - although, I guess this comes with the territory with retail.
    - Management was discouraged from making personal connections with associates.

    Advice to Management

    Have a purpose of why you are doing what you are doing, and dig that purpose out of your associates. This place does not have to be so draining, but it is because everyone is incredibly negative and short-sighted. Also, stores in smaller towns should have the option to close overnight and on Sundays. Working Sundays was the worst.

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

    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.
