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

    Pros

    Management and associates are fun to work with and interacting with customer was a great experience.

    Cons

    There was not much of a downside other than the usual with many jobs, working with a few employees that did not value their job. In this case I pick up their slack and sometimes have to rush to get both theirs and my own tasks completed.

    Advice to Management

    Being hands-on with your employees, especially new employees, is motivational and shows them hard work pays off.

    I have been working at Walmart (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Learn everything you need to grow with the company. You do everything a assistant manager does and some depending on your location, For me I'm a dept. manager and front end zone manager that takes over assistant manager duties 3 days a week or 2 weeks in a row if my assistant is on vaca.

    Cons

    Very stressful. Expectations and out comes are highly rated. Rewards are minimum. Telling yourself you did a great job is the only thing to get you threw your day sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    None its aggressive training that preps you for a salary position.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    it's a paycheck, with the occasional quarterly bonus if your store is 'good enough'.
    Employee discount helps to buy clothing for the work uniform, somewhat.

    Cons

    If you were on the good side or a favorite of certain managers, you always got your yearly raises.
    Training is non-existant or very sub-par. Healthcare benefits were very expensive deductions from paychecks.
    Depending on time of year, sometimes you were at work more than you were at home, it felt like. No real work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites or have pet employees. Don't let folks brown nose their way to better pay or positions.
    Listen to idea your customers AND employees may have to improve your store in any way.
    Pay them better! And stop firing the good employees who bust their butts but go unnoticed due to the butt kissers.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I learned alot in my position at Walmart, but I was lucky enough to have a supervisor that trained me well and gave me many opportunities to learn in different parts of the store.

    Cons

    Walmart has changed over the years, hiring less and working its employees harder and harder. They set unrealistic goals for many of the positions without the necessary tools, training or manpower, to accomplish them.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to learn the positions in the various departments for which you are in charge. If you don't know all of the responsibilities of the employee's, then you can't constructively lead them.
