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

    Pros

    Job security, lots of stores hiring almost all of the time. Good for single people or people with no children.

    Cons

    Focus is always on the customers instead of employees. Not good for family or people who want to do more than live to work.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your managers work/life balance

    Pros

    The opportunity to help the public and the Walmart associates daily. You can truly be a changing force in an employee's life.

    Cons

    Terrible schedule as a manager. 4 week rotating schedule with only 1 weekend off in a month. Hours vary from 7-4, 8-6 or 12-10. You are at the mercy of the store manager, they can make the job miserable if they are not happy.

    I worked at Walmart (More than a year)

    Pros

    Walmart will hire almost anyone and out of desperation I suppose, seeing that their turnover rate is listed at 66% by the WSJ. I suspect it is much higher than that.

    Cons

    Oh my, where do I start... Pay is not commensurate with duties and because of the size of the company and the number of employees, I would say it has a large negative effect on the industry as a whole. An associate (in no way for the first several years),nor even a Dept. Mgr. or a Support Mgr., can earn a livable wage - a wage that requires no outside assistance to survive. The benefits are not affordable either and one of the worst I have ever had based on out-of-pocket, percentage coverage and employee premiums. Responsibilities are given but authority is not. Major micro-management mentality exists from the top down. The home office in AR seemingly has very, very tight control over all of its locations/stores, i.e. it is nearly impossible to speak with someone at the home office to discuss a very important issue such as a major pay discrepancy. Work/family life balance is nearly nonexistent. I could go on and on and on, but I'll leave with this from a company that has produced several, several billionaires...they even take a fee to make court ordered garnishments such as child support. WOW!

    Advice to Management

    Just read my comments (as well as others I suspect) and if you have any God given morals and values, I'm sure your talents could be better utilized to take care of those who make the money for the company.

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

    Pros

    Comparatively good pay, we actually get to stand on cushioned mats when cashiering (which there have been places I've worked where you can't & trust me, there's a difference), they seem to actually respect the availability you set & if you care about 401K's/mildly expensive health plans/stock options & other such "long term employee benefits" they have good options.

    Cons

    If you haven't worked there for at least a year & in some cases, longer, many of their benefits are not even available to you. There is little constructive communication from management down to lower levels - they are very good at cheerful words that make you reassured at least somewhat, you walk away & go "but wait, I still don't have any idea about "X"". Their attendance policy doesn't care WHY you may have had to call off - a point is a point is a point. When you have accrued 6 total, out the door you go. (You could have to call off for a major medical emergency for a loved one & unless you've gone thru all the hoops previously for a particular exemption it could get you fired - they don't care) They are working on changing the number you have available, but they are making each action worth more points.....so it doesn't give you any more room or maneuverability. Aaaand....management knows nothing on when it's supposed to kick in, whether points roll over, etc.
    Customers - yes, all jobs have them. Walmart's customers are entitled, spoiled brats for the most part. And if they complain loud enough, no mater how in the WRONG they might be (& they frequently don't need to complain very loud at all) management will roll over & try to "make it better". There is NO support to cashiers vs angry customers, you are told in front of the customer you're wrong, do it this way (note - ask for clarification later & be told you were right, they were just making the customer happy) & the customers know this & flagrantly use this to their advantage. The customers will suck your soul out if you can even survive the underlying callousness of management..... (I'm only still here because pay is good & hard to replace...)

    Advice to Management

    Know what's going on with policy changes, have a heart toward the lives of employees, stand up for your employees - don't just roll over like a beaten dog for customers because they raised their voice.

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

    Pros

    A good reason to work at Walmart is that you get to interact with different individuals everyday. It improves your costumer service skills.

    Cons

    A downside at working at Walmart is no overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is the key.

    I worked at Walmart part-time

    Pros

    The ladies in the hr dept.and my coworkers made everything at least tolerable.

    Cons

    Pay was horrible. I was an unloader so we had to work all thanksgiving getting ready for black friday. After my long shift I was too tired and frustrated to even eat.

    Advice to Management

    If you arent going to pay you're employees decent wages at least let them enjoy their holiday with their families.

    The company gets interesting on black Friday.

    Cons

    They work you to death especially when they are under staffed. But yet they say their not. Your hours are like a seesaw and you can't count on a regular pay for your paycheck. And their attendance policy is crap.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your workers that bust their butt to get your products out.

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

    Pros

    Easy to become an employee, you'll get cross trained so it makes it easier to find a new job. I was a sales associate, but they cross trained me as a cashier. Also I started out a little above minimum wage

    Cons

    Get ready to be screamed at! Basically all of the customers hate you, and the store is almost always understaffed. Also if you're seasonal, odds are you'll get laid off, but as they're doing it, they'll tell you to reapply....

    Advice to Management

    When you're scheduling, schedule employees!!!!
