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

    Pros

    Salary, insurance, PTO, company stock match, employee discounts, 401k match

    Cons

    Long hours, overnights, weekends, stress, not enough help, heavy loads.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should pour positivity into their associates. Appreciation goes a long way and don’t forget about the forgotten shift....the overnight associates.

    10% discount on items at the store. The break is an hour long which is pretty good.

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

    Pros

    It is a semi-quiet environment to work in. You get to provide sound insight to customers on products they are trying to buy.

    Cons

    The new scheduling system prohibits you from taking days off periodically when you need them the most by increasing the rate you earn it. The earned time off that is 'protected' can only be used for sick days. Only if you're perfect in attendance can you get the highest possible bonus, but otherwise, calling in once at the wrong time can land you in a predicament.

    Advice to Management

    Management cannot undo what corporation has set forth. Yet, corporate can rethink their model of attendance. Pay may not be able to increase that much, but a decent living wage would suffice for most associates so they can continue to serve customers to the best of their ability and with a smile on their face.
