    I worked at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working at Walmart! My position was very easy to carry out. Great first job experience

    Cons

    There isn’t really any downsides besides the fact that during the holidays it’s going to require that you buckle down and hustle. The benefits are so-so but the hourly pay makes up for it so I can’t complain.

    Advice to Management

    Better benefits
