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

    Pros

    A job when I needed it

    Cons

    not enough communication between management and its workers. Pay is peanuts.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your workers more when its time to hire within. Hire cart pushes, so dept. Associates aren't pulled every hour per shift

  3. "Run from this store Walmart #5251"

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

    Pros

    Good people to work with

    Cons

    Management at this store is so clueless. They think whatever they say is the golden rule. They are very disrespectful; they feel they can talk to you any way they feel. Your thought or ideas about the job you are doing is meaningless. They refuse to hire new employees to fill vacant positions. The staff is overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. You are not the co-manger from God.

    Pros

    Decent pay, reasonable expectations, paid 15-minute breaks

    Cons

    Getting used to working at night

    Plan your work assignments a little better prior to the shift so there's not so much effort spent during the shift to move employees around.

    Pros

    15 minute breaks, fun environment to work in. The people around you can make or break the experience. Hours are consistent

    Cons

    Repetitive work and frequent no shows cause them to call you in often. No real accountability for the people to do well. No incentives

    Advice to Management

    Show you care. Offer more incentives

    Pros

    Great company to grow in. There are a lot of opportunities in this field and it's a face paced environment

    Cons

    Mistakes are crucial. Must be able to learn fast. Customers can be rude. But Walmart will protect you in any worse case scenario

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees. We are front line. If you don't listen how would you know how to run Walmart as a business?

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good pay. Decent bonus structure.

    Cons

    Recently the "work/life balance" had been deemed as not necessary. When I started the company wanted to ensure that you had ample time to spend with your family even through the difficult time odd the holidays. The pay few years that hasn't been a priority. Staffing is a struggle. Ad a salaried employee you are going to put in extra time if your store is not properly staffed

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

    Pros

    Almost all of my coworkers were wonderful.

    Cons

    Unhelpful and unintelligent management. Customers who think your register is magic and can fix every problem. People who pitch a fit for what they want, and management who lets it happen conditioning these people to realize acting foolish gets them what they want.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with actual knowledge, people who have worked in the store.

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

    Pros

    It is easy to get in the door at Walmart, it is even easy to reach an hourly management position/

    Cons

    Walmart doesn't advance its most qualified people. Advancement in the company comes down to little more than a popularity contest.

    Advice to Management

    Know you people, Know their skills, and put the aces in their places.
