    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.

    Pros

    Crazy customers can make the day interesting

    Cons

    Management cannot agree on anything. They want you to break policy to get the work done. No one care about your safety. Standing on a milk crate is not a good idea, but what are you supposed to do when you are not allowed to use a step stool. Managers play favorites. If you are not liked, then forget about having any chance.

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

    Pros

    Many opportunities for growth with eCommerce. It is a company with strong leaders that are reshaping the future of Walmart.

    Cons

    Technology is still lacking compared to other eCommerce companies. Although Walmart is growing & changing, the size of the company slows down the pace of change.

    Advice to Management

    Servant Leadership, Building relationships, & Leading by example are important for being a successful leader.
