    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.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, full time hours, paid lunch

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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.

    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 worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wal-Mart pays well from the Assistant Manager up. But when you average your pay against the number of hours you work, it’s not great.

    Cons

    You’re schedule 50 hours, you’ll work 60-70. Lunch breaks are few and far between. There is 0 work/balance because Wal-Mart doesn’t care about the life you have outside of work. Sure, they probably do in some locations. But when you have a store manager who is best friends with the market manager, you have no one to back you. The management restructuring eliminated thousands of jobs, and there is more coming in the near future. This makes it very difficult to advance.

    Advice to Management

    When you claim you listen to your people, it would be nice if you actually do it. I am a 17 year veteran with Walmart with 2 bachelor degrees, and there is a reason why I’m leaving your company.

    Pros

    Unless you are a real mess it's a job for life.

    Cons

    People who have worked for them, 5- 15 years, got no recognition with new pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    Floor people know your customers, should listen to them more, like Sam used to.

    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.
