    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co workers,
    Direct bosses,
    Great associates,
    Great room to grow,
    Easy promotion path if you’re willing to work hard.

    Cons

    Working holidays,
    Bad work life balance,
    Indirect bosses,
    In this position you play the roles of 6 or 7 people between HR functions, Workforce scheduling,
    Planning and Space executions, Inventory flow specialist, logistics, seasonal execution guides, and sales and merchandising.
    To many bosses!

    Advice to Management

    Magical realism directly relates to this companies upper management. Expect to be interrogated on the basics of the business while quizzed on seasonal execution guidelines and often times a breakdown in one area inversely affects the other. Stop expecting miracles as “standard” while cutting back on workforce hours. Any complaint is trapped in the mental paradigm of a “dedication level” as it relates to company loyalty.

    Pros

    Company has money and resources, vendors, third party companies always willing to work with you on special projects. Promotions.

    Cons

    Always on call depending on your performance. If you are a high performing salary manager you will work very long days 18 plus hours.

    Advice to Management

    None, store managers and market managers have their own issues to deal with. Company is going in the right direction.
