    I worked at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Met lots of nice people. Management are always kind and supportive to learning. Was surprised at how well I was treated overall.

    Cons

    Cashiers were consistently pushed to sell Mastercards and get donations from customers. Quantity sold affects which register areas you are assigned and how many hours you will get on the schedule. Its a bit of a bummer for something you have so little control over to affect a major part of your job.

    Advice to Management

    There has got to be another way to determine how many hours are assigned to people. Also tell people before they are hired that the 27 part time hours per week are not guaranteed and will most likely be maximum 27 for 2 weeks.

    I worked at Walmart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None basically, the only pro I can think of is job is not that stressful. Stress comes from the poor management and not the job itself.

    Cons

    Poor management, they dont care about their cashiers. The cashier may faint or die but not a single member of management would care to look into the situation. There is too much favoritism and bias. All of this makes the work environment poor so dont go there even if you have no choice.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the favoritism and try to care for people who work for you

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

    Pros

    Walmart is very flexible and works around your schedule. Work can be quite easy and discount of 10% is a plus.

    Cons

    Very high turnover rate so if you are an old worker you keep on training these new kids into the job only to quit in a week as it gets stressful on busy times. The income is pretty low and they give .30 cents raises every year and that's it.

    Advice to Management

    More incentives maybe a little more compensation for senior workers.

    I worked at Walmart part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very good training for all employees, benefits & profit sharing and nice coworkers (take the time to know them).

    Cons

    Minimum pay for associates, depending on experience, responsibilities for a customer service manager was too much and not on par with wage, unrealistic expectations from upper management, open jo positions posted for formality when it's already been filled, more politics than business implementation of policies and programs, lack of morale for employees, buying out older age employees replacing with young ones

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and recognize efforts of your subordinates/ employees it makes a difference on their performance work output, older/mature employees are much more reliable, be realistic on the job description and expectations, be transparent then associates will trust you and happily carry out what needs fo be don
