    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    At our store management works closely with associates to make sure tasks are completed correctly and quickly. It is not an unusual thing to see an assistant manager stocking shelves or unloading a truck right along side the associates.

    Cons

    It isn't easy to get a full time position. These are mostly reserved for management. Also we go through times of the year when hours get cut by as much as 15-20 hours a week because its "not too busy". This means that the people who are working get pulled to registers and other jobs cant be completed.

    Advice to Management

    Have more associates, cashiers, cross trained to help out in other areas of the store like go backs and zoning or the fitting room and apparel. During slow periods offer more hours to associates who cross train in other areas to pick up slack where needed.
