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

    Pros

    Hours, pay, plenty of room to move up in the company . Everything is great ! Managers were very nice & always helpful. They make sure you’re comfortable with what you’ve learned in your training before putting you at work alone.

    Cons

    Dealing with rude customers is really the only con , I don’t have much else to say other than that!

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent and quarterly bonuses. If you find the right store you can find a manager willing to help you grow with the company. They send managers to the academy stores for extra training.

    Cons

    You have to follow the one best way process but depending on the size of your department you probably find it difficult to get anything else done around your department to make it look good. Managers will give you a hard time about it even if your doing the things you need to be doing. Managers are not supportive and bring down morale but will think they are great.

    Advice to Management

    It all starts at the top, starting with the market managers to the store managers. Continual trading on best management practices and attitudes need to be implemented for salaried managers. If the market manager come around telling your entire store they suck that doesn’t help morale that is already low. Management needs to learn to be more supportive of their department managers which will help increase morale. Most people don’t come to work wanting to do a bad job, they want to do good work and if managers support them they will see better results and morale boost.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pto, pay and you get insurance, it isn’t very good but better than nothing I suppose

    Cons

    Decent pay but it’s not worth taking over your life. I’m scheduled every single Friday and Saturday night and work every single holiday including Christmas and thanksgiving nights. Everyone is overworked, stressed and negative atmosphere always. They demand a ton but don’t give you the work force to complete it. They’ll ask you why but if you try to explain problems you’ll be shot down for making excuses.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the bare minimum scheduling. It stresses out employees and puts a ton of pressure on management, hence why your turnover is awful.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time

    Pros

    -$11 an hour starting pay for hourly associates, full and part time
    -1 hour lunch, two 15 minute breaks
    -Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Certain higher-ups in store are too difficult to speak to; make asking for assistance a nightmare. Very rude.

    Not enough hours to go around for part-timers. Very little to no hands-on training ("every employee for themselves"). No matter how terrible experience is, MUST wait 6 months to transfer to another location. No 1st shift available, only 2nd shift. ~2pm-11pm/3pm-12am

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who have knowledge of their job. Need better security; customer and communication skills.

    Pros

    Great salary, incentives,bonus.
    Good training if you are allowed the time to utilize tools given by home office

    Cons

    Total disconnect home office and stores.
    No family life work balance in any role
    Impossible schedules not 8 hours between shifts.
    "To many Chiefs and not enough Indians".
    Salary managers are focus into many labor intense situations.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to core beliefs. Company's are never to big to circle back to what brought them to the table. Sams 1st core value was respect for the individual. A individuals time is the most valuable thing they will ever posses . So when leadership fails on family life work balance. We fail on retaining good talent and recruiting new talent. Because at the end of the day an individual will have to choose money or family. Family will eventual win. This is for"Salary manager" in your company. Hourly associates they are protected by law to be respected by employers.
    The second was Strive for excellence .. Continue to drive current process industry leader and Cap program and inventory manage is on right track. Opportunity is in Logistics and Warehouse shipments to stores shortages and overage are not going to work for total company resulting in shrink . plus fail on GSS conversions in stores, a lot of money lost.
    Last is Serve our Customer...which is easy to fix if you fix my 1st point. If your store leadership is happy everyday, this will cascade down to the enter team at store level. End result every customer will be greeted with a smile and associate will go the extra mile for our customer.

    Pros

    My co workers are the best to work with. Understanding is there and what we go through. Each work day is a new learning experience. Advancement can happen with hard work and dedication. Pay is also a good incentive to work at Wal Mart.

    Cons

    Management is the greatest challenge. Be more friendly and treat us as adults. Talk to us versus talking down to us. Look at options to a situation before you automatically say no. It is allowed to think outside the box. With this, one would have more happier employees that would want to continue to work at Wal Mart.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and become more human.
