    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The money isn't horrible if you work the right amount of hours. A little more freedom than most. Able to make you're own schedule as long as within guidelines.

    Cons

    All about politics and who you know. Rules only apply to some people but ALWAYS to you. Work load is some times unrealistic. Favoritism beyond belief. The "no retaliation" policy is a lie. The "open door" policy is a lie. Get paid every two weeks. Only 10% discount. As manager some weeks work 60-70 hours but only getting paid for your 45.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for better work life balance. Go back to being a family oriented company. Get rid of the politics. Believe in second chances for reasonable things.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoy working at Walmart, little bit of hard work there but having fun with co-workers lot of opportunities to growth. Different of culture diversities. Recommend everybody should be working at Walmart at least once in the life time either part time or full time . Can't buy everything for less without knowing why

    Cons

    Working more for less, policies mean nothing here. Making a mistake got slap on the wrist then back to work

    Advice to Management

    Please enforce all the policies and don't let the bad guy get away with murder(s)

    Pros

    Like to get myself involved in multiple projects. Very eager to learn new skills. Like to get feedback on any accomplished task.

    Always get your team involved in decision making process and be open minded. Always provide the required information and resources available to assist your team prior to moving on with any project. Be supportive and a leader.
