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

    Pros

    The work and pay are very reliable, the company treats associates well considering how many of them there are. For those who are employed for longer amounts of time, there are a wide array of benefits available.

    Cons

    The work can get boring sometimes, but if you find a way to enjoy the work it goes by much faster. Not very fulfilling work, would not choose to work here long term. The hours blow (2-11pm when I was there, but I hear it is now 1-10pm)

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate that the opportunity for advancement is high. Try to better monitor visiting Assistant Managers as sometimes they can disrupt the workplace balance.
