    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The amount of people you get to interact with is awesome. I made lots of friends. I got experience in the pharmacy to move on out.

    Cons

    Sadly, making friends doesn't pay the bills. The pay could be better, but what can you expect to pay an ill-experienced 20-something? The schedule sucked too as it ALWAYS varied.

    Advice to Management

    I believe you know we are all human and you truly respect the lowly floor employee, sorry, associate. But I really think hiring more people to lighten the load instead of squeezing every possible ounce of energy out of the few good employees you have would make this a better company.

    Pros

    Absolutely no pros to this job. If anything it was the easy access to groceries and the deli for a cheap and fast lunch

    Cons

    Under appreciated, management is very rude and does not care about their employees, management denied me water after having worked outside

    Advice to Management

    Realize you could be wrong. Actually care about your employees.
