      I worked at Walmart

      Horrible hours and pay. Daily disrespect-unorganized lazy workers and must work on black friday. Crazy busy during Holidays and no pay increase for holidays

      I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      It is full time work unlike some employers my friends work for. I do have health insurance, paid time off, and set days off.

      Cons

      Very little pay, annual raises are less than $1. Management is constantly changing so there is little consistency in policy enforcement. We are constantly understaffed and it is a revolving door of the staff we do have.

      Advice to Management

      Try to build relationships with your staff so they feel like they actually matter.

      I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      The overnight associates were some of the best people I`ve worked with.

      Cons

      Managers seem not to notice associates who wandered the store, wasting time and not doing their work. Other assocs. do assigned jobs and then finish someone else`s job, and still get chewed out for not working fast enough. Walmart`s "My Guide" program allotted wildly inaccurate times for jobs to be completed. Not enough staffing on overnight shifts to cover all of the jobs that needed to be done. Empty shelves blamed...

      Advice to Management

      Sam Walton said "Listen to the associates on the sales floor; they work with the customers and know what`s going on".

    • My experience has been good, I have always been treated fairly and with respect.

      I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      There are people from every background with experience in every field that you come in contact with every day, you learn a lot from those around you.

      Cons

      Many things seem to be managed too much. Too many people running the same thing without communication between them.

      Advice to Management

      Communication is key.

    • You will get paid more here on average than other electronic associate jobs. (Target, Best Buy, Etc.)

      I have been working at Walmart

      Pros

      Pay is generally higher Working in a team environment Associates are nice Easy to get in Benefits are good You get paid an extra dollar an hour on Sundays My share (If the store does well in sales and well in customer service, you get a bonus check. Highest ive seen is $543 dollars and lowest was $53)

      Cons

      They have right to cut hours if store is not doing well. I went from 32 down to 8 a week while other full time employees went from 40 hours a week down to 32-36. Lack of communication between managers and workers Store will stay open even if there is bad weather. (It snowed here in Minnesota about 20 inches if I recall in just a few hours and the store stayed open throughout the day and night. I was pretty frustrated...

      Advice to Management

      Communicate with your employees on whats going on with the store Quit taking shortcuts Order products as necessary Have more organization during busy days and communicate where products are located in the store on days like Black Friday so that associates can better help customers through the sea of people.

      I have been working at Walmart

      Pros

      "MyShare" bonus 4 times a year The company is unlikely to go under or downsize You can learn many areas of retail from one company 10% discount

      Cons

      The "MyShare" bonus can be cut anytime even after the quarter ends (we lost $100 because of associate accidents!) The company gives and take incentives for accidents, blaming those who get hurt at work for loss of incentives and encourages employees to do the same to their fellow associates Although there are many openings for advancement there are also a lot of broken promises. There was recently an opening for...

      Advice to Management

      Don't have a separate set of expectations for your employees. Treat your employees better so you aren't constantly losing good employees and filling the spots just to fill them.
