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

    Pros

    The job pays well and isn't too stressful. You're given a generous amount of breaks. Very possible to move up to higher positions. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    The store I work at often schedules very few cashiers during very busy times, such as Friday/Saturday nights. It gets very busy and you're often required to stay past your scheduled time. Also I have recently noticed more CSMs being hired it from outside when there are many capable people within the company who could be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Try to train more within the company and promote from within instead of hiring so many people from outside the company. It can make it feel difficult to move into better positions sometimes.

    Pros

    You receive a paycheck. There are some nice associates.

    Cons

    There are special groups of friends with management who are not required to work as hard as people outside of their cliques. Other than receiving a paycheck there is no reward for working hard and or exceeding expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism and recognize the hard workers you have. A simple thank you goes a long way.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Always projects to do to keep busy. Set schedule. Close to home. 2- 15min breaks plus lunch hour. Associates discount

    Highly stressful due to too many managers and not enough associates. No holidays off
    The hard and dedicated workers are no more recognized than the slackers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat long term associates with more respect and give the few you have left the option to work or be off on holidays. Give credit where credit is due. We have given our most productive years to this company. Appreciate us often

    I loved working at Walmart. It was good money whenever your hours didn't get cut. I was a part-time cashier, but I got great full-time hours.

    Take your job seriously , but also show respect like you would want others show respect to you.
