    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pros of working at Wal-Mart are that there is great communication between associates and management. We create a safe work environment for both employees and our customers.

    Cons

    The downside depending on which location you work at, is that sometimes if there is trouble with scheduling an associate or if the associate working in that area calls in and does not show up for their scheduled shift. You may be pulled to that area to ensure that there is an employee working in that area at all times
