    Pros

    Great benefits, easy job, and good way to get customer service experience

    Cons

    The pay could be better, crazy schedules, hard to move up/get promoted, isn’t a job that would be long-term, and dealing with a lot of bad attitudes (including management & workers)

    Advice to Management

    Workers have a life outside of Walmart, so having set schedules would be great and the pay could really be better

    Pros

    The other people who work there are great to be around and management will help you most of the time.

    Cons

    If other associates call out or you are under scheduled good luck, if your department is over scheduled then you will be sent across the store to do something you do not know about.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job scheduling employees and get some better help across the store.

    Good corporate culture
    Flexible hours
    Flexible dress code
    Hard work is rewarded quickly
    Higher than average starting pay
    Matching 401k up to 6%

    Cons

    Under staffed at times
    High turnover
    You are expected to do any job at any time
    You are expected to do more than one job to make up for lack of hiring/retention
    Managers high up don't make much money for amount of hours worked

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all jobs are adequately staffed so that your good employees who care are not left picking up the slack and feeling overwhelmed and undervalued and inevitably leave the job. That is how you are losing good people.

    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.

    Pros

    Having the ability to invest within the company with stock and shares. As well they have the program to help some associates get a degree. Giving back is important for the company.
