I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than 5 years)
Great hours. Great management. Never boring. Lots of opportunities. Profit sharing. Stock purchase contribution. 401k matching up to 6%. Great co-workers. Great wellness program.
Pay. Never getting caught up.
I worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)
If you do your Job they don't micro-manage.
Most of the managers must be from Texas.
Advice to Management
Move away from Texas.
I work the hours I want.
poor inventory management. Poor training. They want you to bin material but then don't tell you how to remove it to the sales floor. One person in management says do it this way and then you get chewed by the next one that says that's not right. I've worked with someone that was "coached" because she was in an accident with her grandkids and the deputy sheriff said you can either go home and take care of them (my co-worker called the sitter and found out she was drunk) or I can place them at child protective services. The deputy even called and talked to a manager,, did it matter? Nooooo, management "coached" her anyway. Why should an employee choose losing their grandchildren to the state over a job?
Advice to Management
Please look into more modern material management. I've looked online and there is all sorts of different shipping bins and crates that you could use to cut cost and manpower. That would be preferable to some people throwing stuff in the semi and needing 10 people to unload and sort. The most used word I hear at Walmart is "no". We can't do this or we can't do that. The telzons are a joke for the work we perform.#1 there isn't enough in my department for 2 people working at the same time. #2 if the charger worked so that an employee wouldn't have to fight the telzon or printer to stay on also might help. Inventory is ridiculous, and I get pulled out of my job to do someone else's. I think the head of Walmart should go on Undercover Boss and realize how poorly managed this company is. I seriously can't believe they are still in business. In my opinion Walmarts motto is lose a dollar to save 10 cents.
