    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Salary, PTO, Growth Opportunity, Vision of the company is great, if you're lucky to get a leader as a SM then knowledge is poured down to develop you as it should.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance, Respect for the Individual is non existent in Region 2, CO's and SM are managers not leaders as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Region 2 lacks respect: Co/SM doesn't communicate in a respectful manner, personal time away from the store isn't respected, management schedules are not produced in a timely manner.
    Disconnect between CO's and SM.
    Working in the north and working in the south were seemed like working for two different companies.
