    Pros

    Many people can get employment here.

    Cons

    Not a meritocracy; most everything involved with the decision making and mediating process, occurs because it serves as a praxis of concern for liability and PR image campaigns. You could have owned your own company and had a graduate degree, and you will be started off as a Maintenance worker, or be started as a cashier, with no intention of getting promoted. Usually the reasoning behind this is due to concern that you aren't part of a clique, which too often occurs because they prefer people that don't "rock the boat," or don't rely upon affirmation from those in authority by needing approval. A common trait in companies that become to complacent with success, is they often become afraid to innovate and compel innovation (instead of changing things which often don't resolve the underlying problem.) This can come in the guise of becoming placated by too much egalitarian mediocrity as the locus of focus, where relying too easily on automation and keeping people "on rails" will often be preferred for those that get a job here. It become apparent after awhile that brainwashing techniques are a hallmark of Walmart, where using the 'Robby the Robot' cartoons when cashiers clock in is a nice way of saying, "you are a robot and are easily replaceable" and how the trend is heading where most stores are operated by self-check outs, or will be in the near future. This evidently will transition into how Walmart focuses on hiring as well; where technology can replace people, so too can new hires that can be paid far less than those whom might have been their 10 years, and thus their focus on creating an effective and competent workforce has less interest to the overall operations, when technology can so easily serve as the focus of mediating incompetence in the work place; thus how competent you are will be considered a safety net in operations that cannot easily be replaced could be considered a "pro" for those that don't mind being relegated to a "dead end job."

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely too heavily on "yes men," and don't take shortsighted opinions as an accurate reflection of what you should believe; too often people will overcompensate by using their mallets of authority to hammer in things that don't fit.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get good benefits. Insurance is not expensive at all compared to other employers. 401k available and Wal-Mart matches up to 6%. PTO- the longer you've been with the company the faster you accrue pto. A salaried person with 7 years with the company gets about 6 weeks of pto.

    Cons

    They definitely overwork you. $48k a year is not worth becoming salaried. With the amount of hours you put in (minimum of 50 hours but often times 60-70hours per week) once you do the math, you end up getting paid about $16/hour. You dont get to spend time with your family because the little time you have left of the day, you just want to sleep your stress away and before you know it it's the next day already and gotta put another hectic 10+hr shift. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to think a little more about their associates. I know it's a business but believe me, hiring more people instead of overworking the employees is only gonna take away about 300k from Wal-Mart's pocket, if that. Which 300k to any one of us is alot but for walmart- it easily make millions per store so 300k is pocket change. So spending pocket change to have less stress associates is a great way of thanking them for what they do and not only that but that's how you show you truly care.
