    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

    You have opportunities to move up or change departments in order to advance your career

    Cons

    There are seldom enough associates allowed to be scheduled to get all the work done, requiring salaried managers to work unreasonable hours to complete daily tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to stop using algorithms to determine how many hours can be scheduled and instead needs to focus on having enough associates to provide fantastic customer service and clean and well-stocked stores.

    Pros

    Walmart is always a job that will help you pay the bills. you meet the best people working there. the customers you will meet will help you as much as you help them.

    Walmart is a big company and they always have their eyes on the big picture and sometimes forget about the the little people that make the company what it is.

    Advice to Management

    treat your associates as if they family they need respect as much as the highest manger.
