    Pros

    Some managers are good, some of the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Most of the managers are bad, the scheduling is atrocious, the pay isn't worth the abuse you have to put up with.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with some respect. Schedule for proper coverage. Don't coach your staff for things that they didn't do because you're in a bad mood. Set your team up for success, not failure.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Possibly flexible schedules, training, little to no experience necessary. Good first job to get experience and those that need part-time and flexibility. "open door policy"

    Cons

    drama, coworkers often don't have good work ethic, walmart never schedule s enough people/want 1 person to do the work of 5. Hard to advance due to favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with good work ethic and fire those who are no mature or responsible.

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

    Pros

    I got a chance to learn a new skill set, interact with customers in a more relaxed setting than some other departments, and got to make many people happy with their birthdays and other events.

    Cons

    No matter how short staffed you are in your area you aren't getting any assistance. You will be overworked, underpaid, and when you voice concerns about your workload they ignore you and demand that you do more. When you prove it's not possible for it to be done, they call you lazy and tell you to stay late or threaten your job.

    Advice to Management

    Raise your wages, be more lenient with the workload, listen to your employees, and put a second assistant manager in charge of the fresh departments. If one manager is too overwhelmed to help out and actively handle all areas then have two in charge.
