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

    Pros

    Very flexible availability, and after working there over two years, thats the only pro I can come up with.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor employee attitude, you'll get pulled to other departments, certain sales associates could do managements jobs better than they could, deal with bad customers/impatient customers, hard floors, I could go on

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your "associates". If they're "associates", don't treat them like you're above them. Also if you're having a bad day, dont throw that on your "associates".

    Learn to communicate

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

    Pros

    Some of the coworkers and manager were very kind and helpful. Learning how to get ahead was only a matter of asking how to do new tasks.

    Cons

    Schedule system is automated and thereby always understaffed. Being dragged into another department sucks, especially when it's deli. Although some management was nice they tended to be disorganized and clashed with one another.

    Advice to Management

    Advice is to look over every schedule that comes out or go back to manually inputting. Communicate better with yourself and your associates.

    Pros

    None of them at all

    Cons

    Foolish hours, that they change without telling you, miss a day and call in, 4 absences. Don't get paid a dime in this economy either.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, good hours, good benefits if you want them. You get a discount card after you’ve worked for Walmart for 90 days, and the card saves you a little, especially depending on what you purchase. After six months, you begin to earns paid time off, which accrues fairly quickly.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. The managers either have been with the company forever, or were hired on as management. Despite the rules, there was a lot of gossip amongst the management and associates at the store I worked, and I’m sure this goes for every Walmart. If they don’t like you, they will definitely find a way to get rid of you believe me. Walmart uses the point system just like factories do, which I always thought was weird. Just another way to weed people out. Walmart does not take doctor’s notes or anything similar into consideration; if you miss, that’s a point. You’re only allowed 3.5 points your first six months. It was very difficult to not exceed 3.5 points in six months when a lot of things were out of my control. You could be in a car accident, and Walmart will still point you; they do not care about their associates, and I’m sure corporate doesn’t care about their managers either.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the point system; be more considerate of your associates. They are, after all, the ones doing most of the work. Stop “coaching” people for the smallest of things; if you don’t like a particular associate for whatever reason, get over yourself and be an adult.

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

    Pros

    Sales experience
    lots of learning how to do things that arent your job

    Cons

    -Constantly covering all departments

    -constantly covering own department singlehandedly

    -if youre a good employee youre taken advantage of

    -threatening hours if you restrict your availability

    -must have maximum availabilty to get decent hours and they will abuse this

    -barely any recognition for good work

    -management doesnt know how to keep morale up

    -everyone hates their job and is outspoken about it

    -thought about transferring but my manager told me "this is as green as the grass gets"

    -violate their own policies and legal policies constantly if its convienient for them

    -worked for at least 5 months at full time with overtime and wasnt contracted as such but should have been

    -multiple people with chronic illnesses were told that management would work with them about absences and then were fired for absences

    -management didnt adjust schedules for some minors so when school started they got no call no shows (this happened with adults who changed their availability as well) and got fired for it

    -PTO accumulation is so low its despicable

    -their attendance system is absolutely horrible

    -will contract you as part time and work you full time as not to give you full time benefits

    -will only follow the letter of law and not the spirit, they will screw you given the chance
    -any talk of dissent is immediatly punished

    -Department managers and support managers are overworked while assistants barely do anything (one of mine didnt even know how to operate a register)

    -poorly functioning app that made my job harder to do because it would tell people innacurate information

    -non management associates would be delegated management tasks

    -went months without any dang inventory labels and had to print hundreds of them individually

    -HORRIBLE SCHEDULING

    -no training, i was working with peoples credit for phone loans without any actual training on how to do it

    -hard work was not rewarded

    -no incentive to grow unless you want to be a manager in what can only be described as hell

    -managers WILL insult you WITHOUT repercussion

    -Many employees are on food stamps or other government aid despite being full time
    poor insurance

    -management will do anything not to fire someone, A guy quit before he could be fired after months of complaints about harassment, texting, and being rude to customers

    -constantly understaffed and somehow people couldnt get the hours they needed

    -people unfit for their position were a dime a dozen

    -often little to no information about displays and merchandisers were often also in the dark

    sorry if there are repeats, honestly working there gave me customer service experience but its not something I want to go back to

    Honestly people need to stop applying so that the workers can unionize

    Advice to Management

    Get your absolute stuff together. Right now if Sam Walton were alive he'd be absolutely disgusted in how you are running your company. Follow your policies instead of picking and choosing.
