    I worked at Walmart (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Walmart is a good place to start if, you never work and you are interested to work in retail industry because, you will have a wide view of the advantages and disadvantages that you gone have to confront or accept if you decided for a career in this field.Good for seasonal or part time.

    Cons

    Walmart used to be a good company to work for but, with the time some companies may loose their initial ethics ,values and purposes due to their switched view of development and grown objectives and other interest.This company set global retail standards base on keeping their profits high and the cost of doing business low. Walmart System lacks a positive out comes for employees and communities which greatly impact their living.

    Advice to Management

    If you lack skills in retail you will learn to work strictly with the book or, if you been out from the retail industry for a while and want to refresh your knowledge ,practice and leave to a better job .It is okay, if you are really serious about accomplishing your goal.Walmart location system grant lots of leeway to their store management,Walmart doesn't run checks and balances to store personal management.Enforce your work ethics with the personal or you may end up in Ourwalmart united for respect.Org.list. Your performance and actions in Walmart will be exposed to the media and the community.

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

    Pros

    For the most part, you can work as many days per week as you want. Shopping is the cheapest around.

    Cons

    They should offer a higher pay to returning and experienced workers. I found better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    They need to allow employees to get benefits I'm a timely manner. Working there for 2+ years with no benefits is uh unjust.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The values of the company at mentioned at daily rallies. There were many great people whom I worked for, and with. The values of the team, the values of the individual were expressed not only in rallies, but on the sales floor/active work environment

    Cons

    There can be a disconnect at times with levels of management. Nobody's perfect, but as a team, all members should be actively engaged with each other.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to believe and profess that all career opportunities are indeed available to all current and former Walmart associates
