    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love people...at Wal-Mart you meet so many people. My personality is so addicting people love me. I enjoy getting to know customers being the reason they leave smiling

    Cons

    Change...changes come all the time at Wal-Mart. In the blink of an eye policies change, management changes...nothing you can do about but except and adjust

    Advice to Management

    Follow policies at all times. Always stick to your guns and respect the policies. Definitely follow polices if you have leaders that work for you...such as a CSM

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Monday-Friday schedule and a occasional Saturday/Sunday a month. About 5 hours of PTO every check.

    Cons

    Management is just downright horrible. Once they find out you can do the work of 3 or more people, they will use and abuse you till the end.

    Advice to Management

    Quit thinking that because you found one worker that can do the work of plenty, that doesn't mean you get to abuse them.

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

    Pros

    Striving for excellence in everything they do creates excitement and breeds competition.

    Cons

    Get caught up in the political game and lose sight of what's important, the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your team and they in turn will take care of the customer. Believe in the idea of "servant leadership" and lead by example in order to inspire.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a paycheck albeit a small one
    They're everywhere so theres no shortage of locations to chose from
    ...... I cant really think of anything else

    Cons

    Where do I begin?
    inconsistency is rampant, poor and conflicting direction from management, long and hard work days with no help because it always gets pulled since they are always understaffed, ridiculous expectations, disrespect, dishonesty in just about everything, backstabbing, absurdly poor training, care nothing for the associates, only care about the money, usually dirty with pitifully old and obsolete equipment, upper management is oblivious to concerns and regularly protect their own over those of even their fellow managers, and it goes on and on and on...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what corporate says then listen to what your employees say and grow some sense of logic and common sense as well as a soul. The backbone of the income of the entire company is the employees. Treat them well and take their opinions seriously.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It can be a fun environment but then if you have too much fun then you are considered unproductive. It's a great entry level job company but just that.

    Cons

    Climbing the corporate ladder is not what they make it out to seem. It's definitely not worth the time and effort in my opinion but if that's what you are looking for then by all means go for it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to associates and more understanding. Quit trying to line your pockets up and start being more considerate of the effect u have when you ignore performance over professionalism.
