    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sales experience is good, networking (you meet a ton of people!), and it is easier to get noticed in electronics than any other dept. I have worked in.

    Cons

    You are stretched thin a lot, need to be good at multi-tasking and taking care of business when others may not!

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your little people or they will eventually get fed up with giving it their all with no respect in return and will find a company that will respect them.

    Need to communicate to hourly and department managers a lot better and not set unreasonable goals which sets the store up for failure.

    Pros

    The pros of working at Wal-Mart are that there is great communication between associates and management. We create a safe work environment for both employees and our customers.

    Cons

    The downside depending on which location you work at, is that sometimes if there is trouble with scheduling an associate or if the associate working in that area calls in and does not show up for their scheduled shift. You may be pulled to that area to ensure that there is an employee working in that area at all times
