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

    Pros

    when I first started work here, one thing that made me love buildpharmacy is workers enjoy 100% health insurance coverage throughout your working career

    Cons

    there is actually nothing specific I dislike about buildpharmacy, on the contrary, they are one of the best employers I know

    Advice to Management

    the management should maintain their strict and strategic way of ruling because that is actually one key reason to the successes of this company

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

    Pros

    hours, the ability to work from home

    Cons

    Promotes customer friendly but really aren't. Process that are in place really aren't there to help customers but more to get on and off calls to meet goals. If you go out of your way to assist customers, you get "coached". Not really competitive to Amazon. We are trained to tell customers to research why they didn't receive their orders. Orders don't arrive on time, carriers and third parties steal customers products or money. I feel like I am lying to customers on a daily basis. Too much expectations for low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Changes need to be made with carriers who aren't on time. They need to check third party vendors, there are some that really are scamming customers. Better processes need to be in place to make our jobs easier so that customers aren't screaming at us for things that we can't control.Less focus on the time on the phone and more helping customers with their orders. Less focus on kbs that really don't address some issues and more customer focus. Less focus on surveys that really subjective and don't really help employees do a better job. Supervisors are very rigid and don't really help other than to say read the kbs, not willing to help when employees are floundering when assisting customers. When you have 100 calls in queue and 99% are complaints, there is a serious issue with what you are doing.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    well developed monitoring system .. the occurrence, pto, electronic time adjustment ,off without or with payment ,support education ,flexible shift , availability (choose off days) ,, profit sharing, holiday payment s , this are all i have been benefited

    Cons

    low payment , never offer open positions. experienced associates train new managers :D some managers luck training , high turnover, there are specific areas that needs more payment ,

    Advice to Management

    Managers should offer open managerial positions for associates before they hire.
     Intense ethical trainings should be given for managers . This could be the cause of high turnover
    cap team 2 must have more paymen ,,i have been in different shifts i found this shift has more workload and is the back bone of all shifts. this shift should be given more attention . a little more payment could be motivation and attracts other associates to the shift.
