    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job pays well and isn't too stressful. You're given a generous amount of breaks. Very possible to move up to higher positions. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    The store I work at often schedules very few cashiers during very busy times, such as Friday/Saturday nights. It gets very busy and you're often required to stay past your scheduled time. Also I have recently noticed more CSMs being hired it from outside when there are many capable people within the company who could be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Try to train more within the company and promote from within instead of hiring so many people from outside the company. It can make it feel difficult to move into better positions sometimes.

    Pros

    You receive a paycheck. There are some nice associates.

    Cons

    There are special groups of friends with management who are not required to work as hard as people outside of their cliques. Other than receiving a paycheck there is no reward for working hard and or exceeding expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism and recognize the hard workers you have. A simple thank you goes a long way.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tremendous growth potential, constantly changing fair compensation.

    Cons

    Although there's tremendous growth potential, and the company's changing, there's No work/life balance, and the compensation is only fair for what is required to move ahead. The organization is highly politicized and changes leadership and direction every 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on message, complete one major goal before embarking on a new one. Invest in more than lip service in your front line management.

    Pros

    Easy to move up if you work hard and respect the attendance policy. Managers are less strict and more down to earth than other companies. Supercenter has so many departments so you can accumilate experience for other jobs quickly.

    Cons

    Employees laziness causes minor and sometimes major disorganization problems. Dont really have many cons so far but ive only been there a month.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten up on enforcing standard procedure so things could be more ogamize. I was taught 10 differnt ways to perform certains tasks by numerous people. Some ways are right and some are wrong but when they are wrong it hurts inventory.

    Great pay and benefits. Valuable experience and wonder training. You only benefit when you invest yourself whole heartedly. Stock and annual bonuses are worth the hard work.

    When your managers are off. Do not contact them. Let enjoy their own time away from work.
