    I have been working at Walmart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    +Managment will treat you good as long as you do your job +They got an Even app that allows you to withdrawal up to half your check the week before you get paid +If you express optimism and eagerness to learn, they got plenty of departments that need an extra hand. If you want to become a Customer service manager,Department manager,etc. they'll teach you what you want to know (however you will have to stand out a bit since they want to teach people who want to stay)

    Cons

    -Obviously, you are an expendable resource and they have customers to please so slacking off is a no-no -They have a ridiculous point system on the time clock, if you're 9min too early or late. You get one point added to your record, five points total means automatic termination. (They have protected POT for the point system, say if it's for vacation or illness. But it is not the best option to recover from if used multiple times) - As a normal associate you do not have the authority to approach a customer that is damaging merchandise or stealing. You either have to contact management or asset protection to deal with the issue, but the suspect in question will be long gone before any real help arrives.
