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

    Pros

    Decent amount of PTO

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance. If you have an interest in being a salaried member of management expect to work 10 plus hours a day, never see your kids, never do anything but work, eat, sleep, repeat. They will call you off of your vacation if they feel the need to. PTO hours are decent for salaried managers but unfortunately you'll end up losing most of them due to black out dates and just not being able to take vacations due to the "business needs". If you're single with zero family this is the job for you!

    Advice to Management

    Show that you actually care for your people....from the cart associate to upper management.
