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

    Pros

    easy job overall that pays somewhat decently. good benefits

    Cons

    most of management does not seem to care about the lower associates,
    your schedule will get changed and you will not be notified,
    the company preaches that they can't expect their employees to be available 24/7 but then management will force you to open your availability or they wont schedule you at all.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees that you care about them. employee morale goes a long way

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those beneath you, and try to offer help when certain areas/departments are struggling instead of only intervening just to tell us we need to do better. I can't emphasize this enough - actually try to work WITH us.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Plenty of opportunity to learn new things if your ambitious.

    Cons

    No real direction. Managers are often un organized which results in many different directions being given and not enough training. The work is very physical and the store is always short staffed which means you get pulled everywhere... and they will always expect more.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people properly, don't exploit good workers, stop the 2% raises and give them real money. Hire more people. You hurt moral and customer service by not having enough workers in the sales floor and cash registers.

    Pros

    Great for college students or retirees looking for some extra income. Decent discount, and you make many great friends.

    Cons

    Managers are willing to work against other managers in the store, as long as it means they get ahead. Some managers are very friendly, and easy to talk to -- others could use an attitude adjustment. An individual cannot expect to make a living from the hourly positions. The department managers and assistants are the only ones who could make an OKAY living. Even the Assistants salaries are pitiful. (I know because they told me) Managers put in ridiculous hours for a small return. If you are "grandfathered" into the system, you cannot make time and a half on Sundays anymore. Not even the DOLLAR EXTRA!

    Advice to Management

    Be nice, optimistic, and work with associates and other members of management so everyone wins! Go back to the old ways of

    I worked at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Able to start off although little to no experience
    Started off in High School and given a job
    Good staring pay for being teenager, above Federal minimum wage of $7.25
    Get to interact with customers
    Able to take time off ahead of time with little to no issue from managers

    Cons

    Many didn't take job seriously, although that comes with any job
    Not very good leadership

    Advice to Management

    Take feedback from the employees and actually take the time to greet the customers, look around and talk with the employees of the stores if nothing else to do.
