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

    Pros

    Wal-Mart for sure will never go out of business. Amazing benefits package with Paid time off, prophet share. Pay rate has gone from $8 to $11/hr in the four years I've been here.

    Cons

    High turnover. Constant uncertainties. Dept managers are working so hard but can't ever seem to be good enough for upper management. They're under so much pressure and don't have enough help.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you communicate with other management when you have an associate doing a task that makes them unavailable for the 2 pm zone. You are a team not the lone ranger. When an associate's schedule get changed at the last minute don't assume that they'll know about the change. Let them know.

    Pros

    Great Benefits for Dotcom workers. You are able to get your hours and more if you desire. Pay raises continuously. They give one time bonuses and incentives.

    Cons

    It really depends on the warehouse you work at. Most facilities are not as bad as the one I work at.

    Advice to Management

    Fixing problems are a team effort and if something is put in place everyone has to enforce the same rules. Don't be afraid to do your job in fear of someone doing and open door on you. If you're doing your job there shouldn't be anything to worry about.
