    Cons

    Salary Management is unprofessional, terrified of their own bosses, disrespectful if your not in one of the 'clicks'.
    Have no hesitation in overworking and using the coaching process to threaten associates with 'implied' forced overtime.
    Management doesn't communicate with each other and treats any questions about a task as insubordination at best, or out right calls your question a 'threat'
    Very hostile work environment where lazy employees ignored and productive employees are 'used up' .
    No leadership qualities within the salary management going all the way to the top.
    Employees have to trample over one another if they want to be promoted, or at the minimum keep their job.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to comunicate with each other
    Learn how to address employees
    Learn leadership skills

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

    Pros

    Lenient attendance policy, ability to work in different areas of the store, ability to transfer to different stores in the state, ability to be promoted sometimes, easy to get a job and keep the job

    Cons

    The flexible scheduling is no longer flexible, no family work balance anymore, good Associates don't get recognized bad Associate's don't get held accountable, management does not have your backs in regards to customer service, less and less Associate's available on the floor for customer service with every new attendance and scheduling policy change, promotions based on favoritism and nepotism

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving "management" answers when associate's ask you questions. We know you have no control over certain things but you can still be frank with us about what you can control

    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..
