    Former Employee - Overnight Stocker in Warren, MI

    I worked at Walmart (More than a year)

    Pros

    40 hours a week, has a point system for attendance that is pretty fair, got lots of raises within first quarter and six month review.

    Cons

    Hard work with lots of days being understaffed due to call offs or just not hiring enough people and we still had to meet deadlines to stock multiple departments.. Micro managers not giving you space to just complete the work in peace.. Insane deadlines for stocking made by a metric that equates to stocking a box per minute.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a chance to learn there area without scolding them..

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

    Pros

    2 breaks during the day. You get a one hour lunch, and can take as long as you want for lunch. 11/hr starting is pretty cool for Walmart.

    Cons

    Support Managers have bad attitudes and will talk down to you and belittle you if you’re not a butt kisser. They expect too much out of one associate, and will give you impossible tasks. Hassle getting days off. Fellow associates/managers will throw you under the bus if a customer is around.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to buy shares
    Some benefits (high priced, mediocre benefits)
    Somewhat competitive pay

    Cons

    Lack of organization within management.
    Broke laws when scheduling (would schedule shifts 5-6 hours between one another- worked past midnight, had to be in at 6 am for my next shift)
    Switched to overnights and was excluded from the schedule, so I was “on call” everyday.
    Employees are reprimanded for going over 36 hours weekly for more than 3 weeks.
    Refused to schedule employees (aside for salaried management) full time.
    Other employees are stressed, overworked, and underpaid, so they atmosphere was extremely hostile.
    Would purposely understaff.
    Reported sexual harassment to one of my managers and she told me “I’m sure he didn’t mean it.”
    Outdated technology.

    Advice to Management

    Address issues listed above. Do more than the bear minimum.
