    Pros

    Secure job with a secure company. Good pay and benefits. PTO grants are generous with time employed.

    Cons

    AP management transitioning to a standard operational position. Company is transitioning to a centralized method of management where field level is to execute and not innovate or analyze. Little to no strategy left to be implemented due to store level observation.

    Advice to Management

    Currently Walmart is shifting to a centralized style of management. The company must be careful not to become very narrow in thought and opinion process. This model can also lead to a disconnected view of actual facility level management condition. The company must monitor only promoting associates from the centralized location in to open positions. Remember to obtain talent from the field. I assure you that there is far more knowledge on store operations and conditions in the field than at the centralized offices.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pros for working for Walmart. You get benefits, they might not do much but at least you are covered. You make life long friends at the company or at least I did. You get paid bi-weekly and every quarter, if you qualify you get a bonus. You also accumulate vacation. Really the best part about working at Walmart are the people you work with.

    Cons

    The cons for working for Walmart. As much as they say they're family oriented you never feel that way. Its a company first but the obligations they have for you to follow arent being met with the supplies they need to give. You work every holiday even Christmas if you are in a management position. If you are a sales associate you will work in all departments of the store.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to in-store management is to listen to your associates. To cooperate, listen to your in-store associates, you all rarely step inside walmart stores and the people who do rarely report what is being said. The Market Managers need to have worked in a Walmart store before. Market managers shouldnt have in-store managers in fear. Respect for the Individual stops at store level. You no longer care for your associates and while customers do matter, your associates should come first. Stop fearing that you will be passed by other cooperations. Walmart has been a success not because you had the latest technology or whatever else but because you had respect for your associates and then the associates had respect for the customers. Cooperates needs to find the balance again. We work every holiday without getting paid for it. You take our own vacation time for not working on Christmas. And management even comes on Christmas. The new vacation policy is beneficial for you all, not the associates. You all have to stop thinking that your associates are not smart enough to figure things out, a lot of them stay because they are comfortable and because they have a team. Not because they love Walmart and what it stands for. Stop taking the low road.

    Pros

    I love my job. Love the public

    Cons

    Working 70-80 hours a week as salary manager

    Advice to Management

    Don’t abuse salary associates. Sam Walton was a family man and salary managers do not get to spend much if any time with their families.
