    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    Outdated technology.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.

    Pros

    With many locations you can transfer to almost anywhere you want to live.

    Cons

    This company used to have great core value, but since the death of it founder sadly his beliefs have eroded even though the company claims to still stand by them. Company has become so overly concerned with being diverse in recent years that they often overlook the best candidate for a job when promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Company is constantly restructuring salaried management team which can leave you with no guarantee of employment or the type of hours you could be working. Revise policies without notice in their favor to minimize what they have to pay you in severance if they decide to do mass layoffs.
