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

    Pros

    Walmart provides an opportunity for primary and secondary educated individuals to grow a career from a simple job. There are multiple avenues for advancement that equate to Asst. Mgr's making $45k and Shift Mgr's (Co-Mgr) at $62k. The benefits are at or above other retailers and extend to part-time associates (employees).

    Cons

    Management is guilty till proven innocent in matters concerning associate or customer complaints. The judge and jury is based on a bumbling Q&A session (Redbook) by an overworked Shift Mgr and influenced by non-objective Market HR Mgr's. Continuous hour cuts, hiring freezes and Holiday hiring as seasonal, not part-time. This adds additional wait time for a "transitioned" associate to qualify for benefits, all the while saving Corporate co-pay.

    Advice to Management

    Having worked in Texas, Oklahoma and South Florida, there seems to be a disconnect between Corporate philosophies and Floridian execution [Take a look at salaried manager turnover compared to Corporate percentages]. There is a blaring diversity agenda. The Regional team is lead by a female, that over her reign has focused promotions to Store Mgr and Market Mgr's on women [Take a look at the statistics]. The Regional Asset Protection Manager & Merchandiser are female, HR is African American with a token Caucasian over compliance [Caucasian, male promotions are the real minority].

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

    Pros

    In my opinion the pros of this company is it dies give employees a chance to make an income The hours were not always great but you were able to at least try to make ends meet

    Cons

    The cons in my opinion was some of the people in management played favoritism and I didn't feel it was always fare.

    Advice to Management

    Keep closer eyes on the front end of the stores and pay closer attention to how the customers are being treated. Respect should ALWAYS be the most important factor when dealing with the public no matter what!!
