    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 worked at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked my tail off, they told me the absolute soonest I could become an Assistant Manager would be 18 months. I did it in 20, not bad.

    Cons

    After killing myself for this company, working 5 1/2 years out of 7 as an Overnight Assistant Manager, I got a hernia, didn’t file a workman’s comp claim because I figured the company would take care of its management. Wrong, I was shuffled thru a third party benefits claim company that denied the short-term disability that I’d been paying into for almost 9 years. Protect yourself, because the company considers you as nothing more than a resource to be exploited.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team. Most members of management don’t have the slightest idea of what teamwork means, very selfish.

    Pros

    They matched 401k dollar for dollar.

    Cons

    Managers didn't know how to talk to they're associates. Every meeting felt like a threat or put down meeting. Could never satisfy them.

    Pros

    Close to home , I like the night shift and the work is easy, pay is okay , all I need

    Cons

    The Managers.. I have never in my professional career ever come across such incompetent Managers. They have no concern for doing their job right .. They seem to not care about anything or anyone..

    Advice to Management

    try working in the real world for about 10 yrs. Because if you just graduated up through the ranks at walmart you would not last 3 days in a real managers position.

    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.
