    Pros

    The people that I worked with were truly the only reason I came to work.

    Cons

    The managers really do not care about their employees, there was this constant environment of one manager said this another said that attitude and nobody wanted to take the blame.

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

    Pros

    Obviously, the pay isn't much and it's repetitive, low-skill work, but for those who prefer predictability and consistency, then retail isn't bad. I was a stocker and didn't mind doing the same dept. every day. I also liked the security of the job - as in, if you're decent enough at what you do, the only way you're leaving the company is IF you choose to.

    - They promote from within, so if you wanna rise, you can. Although most who do eventually choose to demote themselves because the responsibilities/headaches at the next level isn't worth the small pay-bump. But it depends on the person, really. If you're really driven, then you can rise and stay there.

    Cons

    - Low pay. I have no clue how people support a family on a Walmart salary. I was young and had no dependents, so I could get by. But really, starting off at $9-10/hr and only getting 1 raise per year(60 cents max) is pretty bad.

    - Managing style completely vary on the person. Some mgrs stay on you the whole shift and can be very cranky. Others trust you and just let you do your work. Obviously, the latter is preferable, but it's rare.

    - It's a retail store offering low-skilled positions, so your fellow employees are likely to be, well, low-class people too. This was the biggest problem I had. I was coming from a background of academia - with a college degree and associating myself with solid people my whole life. The employees at Walmart for the most part are trash, both academically and as people. Just hope you don't get stuck with one in your department.

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

    Pros

    Meet really great people. Mindless work.

    Cons

    plenty of terrible people, low pay, insulting managers, etc. The managers are stupid, one assumed that her masters from APU actually meant something. I worked and went to school, they refused to allow me to have my schedule; so i filed an ethics complaint. It was then approved. Afterwards I found out I was barred from using the ethics line ever again. Literally, I could not access to the Ethics helpline . A company that promises ethics bars its employees? Turnover is insanely high around 150%. They spend more time training new employees than being productive. I half assed everything and no one noticed, because there is not enough managers or other employees working. More work with less people. Departments are empty and I was commanded to do things without any knowledge or training in that area. Unless you plan to stay for 10+ years do not expect any form of advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Realize majority of your workers are going to school to improve. You are digging your own grave by cutting employee hours, since you are insulting your customers.

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

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling. Manager did what she can to make sure we were happy with our schedule. Not really anything else I can say positive about Walmart.

    Cons

    ALways short handed and you can never get a positive review. They always had something bad to say about you to prevent you getting the highest raise possible for an hourly employee.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and not to where you want to do to work but treat them like individuals.

    Pros

    Employees are treated with respect.

    Cons

    If they like you, and you work hard, you get too many hours. I was part-time and sometimes worked 8 or 9 days in a row.
