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

    Pros

    Never extremely boring, easy to bond with coworkers, talking with managers is easy.

    Cons

    Way too many supervisors and managers that walk around making sure people are working instead of helping make sure that the work gets done. Supervisors > Shift managers/department managers > assistant managers > co managers > store manager. Why would you ever need this much management to handle 5-6 kids unloading a truck and stocking shelves

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the chain of command. Too many people with big heads walking around

    Pros

    despite being alive i can't really see anything great about this store it's probably not all of the walmart stores just the one i was working at.. good benefits friendly co workers.

    Cons

    horrible supervisors that had no idea how to manage or advise there employees very tight deadlines that would have to be met or it meant being coached... unorganized sneaky at times disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who actually know how to manage and not just stand around yell and hope for the best.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only pros would be the quarterly small bonus I would get and the 40¢ sodas from the Sam's machines in the break room.

    Cons

    Everyone wants to move up in the company so they don't have to do any work. Many times as a sales floor/ cashier, I would have to run to four different departments ( makeup, cut keys, fishing licence, toys, ammunition, lawn and garden...) to help customers because no one would be working the entire back-end of the store.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know how most of you became managers because you are just as rude as the customers. You don't speak to associates or customers. You don't jump in and help out when needed. Go and take a personality attitude adjustment class...

    Pros

    Possible transfers, limited discounts, mostly friendly staff

    Cons

    Secret "penalties" for actually receiving any of their "perks." (set schedule, disability accommodations, LOA, etc.)
    Rules and management change so often nothing is ever accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    While upper management brags about "investing in its people," (on in-store televisions that employees have to listen to all day) it fails to add that once the pay went up (because of protests, not because of any concern for its employees), the hours went down leaving the employees with no difference in income at all. Great job Walmart!!! Also, in-store management needs to make sure their rare meetings actually address the problems/suggestions that have been repeatedly brought to their attention by employees (associates.) Hire more responsible people so that you can stop micromanaging. Change your horrendous bag manufacturers. Above all, SUPPORT your associates when abusive customers verbally assault them. Stop rewarding rude and/or shady customers - you are teaching them to act like children and throw tantrums in order to get their way when you give them what they want ONLY after they throw a fit. Reward the NICE people and deny those who are nasty. That's the way you will bring in more respectable customers.

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

    Pros

    *Hours can be flexible
    *Okay if you are only looking for part-time work
    *The majority of the co-workers you can relate with to

    Cons

    *Hard to get benefits if any

    *For most employees, it is a dead-end job

    Advice to Management

    You do not own the company. You are an employee just like the rest of us. Please start listening to your co-workers suggestions.
