    Focus on store environment and customer service, it is still the driving factor to the business.

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

    Pros

    Associates (Some), 401k, discounted tuition, 1 hour lunch break

    Cons

    Low pay, insane amount of work, constant understaffing, poor management, irregular schedule

    Advice to Management

    don’t talk down on associates, you are not any better, less arrogance, more work and organization, don’t just do the right thing when “company” is coming. Work like they are coming every day. Don’t talk about associate’s personal business to other associate’s. It’s unprofessional and against ethics.

    Pros

    Benefits, pay is decent for what you do.

    Cons

    Always worried about cutting hours when we already don’t have enough staff
    The constant drastic changes, then changing it back, really effects us all and makes us spend more time retraining our people.

    Advice to Management

    Some departments like OGP shouldn’t have to worry about hours especially when understaffed. Constantly having to work over and cut my time later on and I rarely have time to cut it. I love OGP but hours should be raised above expectations because everyday your walking into something unexpected. I also think GIF should ask you if your sure you want to accept an exception. Please if anything fix this.

    Short breaks, and lots of drama between coworkers.. It's like high school all over again

    Stop hiring young inexperienced fresh high school graduates as management. Alot of them don't know what they're doinv and are very biased and have drama with coworkers.
