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

    Pros

    Walmart is a big corporation and allows one to work anywhere they want in the United States. The company has treated me very well during my tenure with them.

    Cons

    There probably won't be a full-time position open for me as a pharmacist when I graduate from pharmacy school.

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

    Pros

    The stated culture and values of Walmart are good. I worked at the store level; there is computed-based training for much of the store operation. There is good opportunity for advancement. I progressed from a sales associate to a department manager and a zone merchandise supervisor. I was prepping for a promotion to assistant manager when I left the company.

    Cons

    Like many companies who hire entry-level workers at minimum wage, Walmart tried to operate with as few floor workers as possible during the economic downturn. This led to work not being done and complaints from customers which are misdirected at sales associates who can do little about staffing. Associates are asked to work extra hours to assist store management. Those same productive associates then have hours cut without notice to satisfy financial needs of the store.

    Advice to Management

    There is a disconnect between out-of-store management and in-store management when it comes to store operations. Many times, in-store management completely disregarded direction from above as to how an individual store should be operated. An associate who tries to follow overall company direction can frequently come into conflict with in-store management over the store's direction, leading to unwarranted disciplinary action and unnecessary conflict.
