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

    Pros

    -Great coworkers at the 2 stores I've worked at
    -Flexible scheduling
    -Clean

    Cons

    -Some bad managers previously
    -Not enough people working some positions (people have to fill in other positions in store to keep up)
    -Training seems to be more propaganda direction wise rather than teaching more important things besides the companies history.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to workers 1 on 1 to help smooth things out in stores
    Hire more people for every position, there's always a lack of cashiers open for customers

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great level of technology and many resources and benefits that appeal to most people. Team focused success and rewards. Provided career advancement until my position was restructured. 20% of the leadership above me, were amazing individuals that helped me succeed, provided me with tools for my success and served as amazing members of my professional network, and still do.

    Cons

    Hours of work can be overwhelming. Company is in a downsizing mode right now and forcing out much of its long-term talent with restructuring and layoffs. They did not react to other entities taking all of the ecommerce market share, now they are playing catchup to compete with the likes of Amazon. It is embarrassing how far behind the company is and how they are cutting out payroll to adjust for the future. 80% of the leadership above me, were not suited for their titles, lacking people skills and leadership skills, also had little understanding of the dynamics of basic business dealings.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise that you repurpose your long-term talent, rather than sever it. As a corporation, they are tending to steer away from the "Sam Walton" culture, in favor of driving a higher bottom line. Re-focus on talent recognition and development.

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

    Pros

    Walmart is a great place to build work history and learn to work under pressure.

    Cons

    There isn't enough staffing or hours in the day to complete all your tasks and have a successful department. No matter how hard you try upper management will always find something wrong and there aren't really any rewards for hard work or a job well done.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your associates for their hard work and you will have more associates that actually work hard.

    Pros

    Fast opportunity to move up in the company if ample effort is put in. Compensation is satisfactory compared to other retailers

    Cons

    Work life balance is stressful for some positions. Once a salaried member of management, progression is hard to follow through with.

    Advice to Management

    Pick the best candidates for positions. Too many times have I seen the wrong choice get the position and it leads to poor business decisions
