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

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits are what drew me in. I was receiving consistent shifts and the same 3 days off in a row every single week. The schedules were also available up to 4 weeks in advance online.

    Cons

    The store I worked at was managed very poorly. In fact the whole Walmart corporate structure seems odd. Different salaried managers would tell me contradictory things, and I really never felt like I was working as part of a team. Communication was very poor. Other associates were often more helpful if a problem came up, rather than management. The attendance system feels very threatening and stressful because its a point based system that can result in termination when you hit 4 points. I would always be denied a day off for a medical procedure unless I talked to the once specific. Manager that decided that.

    Advice to Management

    Cross train the employees! Every department was completely isolated from one another and if a customer service manager for example, was absent, the other managers didn't know basic management functions on the registers.

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

    Pros

    I had a lot of experience and they have good benefits. 41k they match your dollar up to 6%. You can purchase stocks.

    Cons

    Too much work not enough people. If salary you work way more than what they pay. You don't bonus every year. Sometimes they cut hours ridiculously. You have to work all holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with what you do. Anyone is replaceable even if you have been there 10 years.

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

    Pros

    This is an easy job for the most part you spend most of the night crazy busy stocking freight and making the store look pretty. They offer really good benefits like a 401k, stock purchase plans, health, dental, and life insurance. They even give you paid time off & you get bonuses if your store is doing well.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of consideration for employees from management. Not a lot of communication/

    Advice to Management

    The managers at my store need to know that communication is an important part of the job. Making a speech at the begining of a shift is not communicating nor is it always effective. Being a good listener is also important. By listening to your crew in an effective way also tells your reps. they are also important and valued.
