    I worked at Walmart (More than a year)

    Pros

    Received employee discounts on regular purchases with additional discounts during the holiday season. Working in store operations provides many job locations that are reasonably close to home.

    Cons

    The job requirements are not commensurate with the pay for their management roles. The is almost zero work life balance for Assistant Managers.

    Advice to Management

    Those developing processes for store operations should spend some time in the store to understand how these processes would be implemented as well as the personnel that must execute them. Also, many on the management staff knows little about managing people.

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

    Pros

    Always doing something don't really get bored. And Some really cool people you work with.

    Cons

    Everyone expects the unloaders to do everything and everyone thinks they're your boss. Management just makes things worse when they try to get involved when trying to unload a truck. Just my opinion at my store.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team don't demand it just makes things worse. And also they know what they're doing stay out of the way when it comes to unloading the truck unless you want to jump in the truck and throw it yourself. Just have respect for for your employees.

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

    Pros

    Provided a 40 hour work week.

    Cons

    I saw constant discrimination regarding sex and race.

    Advice to Management

    Management should care about the associates as much as they do about the almighty dollar. Sam Walton would be extremely disappointed with the way his company is being run. It was the happy employees who built his empire, not management. Those happy employees are seldom seen anymore.

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

    Pros

    The one and only pro was that it was very easy to get hired. I applied to be a cart attendant for a walmart in Gilbert, Arizona, and in less than a week, I had the job.

    Cons

    I was payed the absolute lowest wage possible: $7.25 hourly. I worked 10 hour shifts, with another hour for lunch. The benefits were insignificant, and required one to work at the store for over a year at the very least. The work is very demanding due to the constant flow of customers that never slows down until about 8:00 PM. The pay is too low for the amount of constant work required.

    Managers are rude and overbearing, they almost never help with anything and seem to be there only to talk down to employees.

    My job required me to work all day in the parking lot pushing carts. There was only one cart-pushing machine at the store, and it would break often, so I had to push lines of carts by hand. The average temperature during most of the year is 115 degrees, and sunlight is harsh and constant. I often felt weak due to physical stress and heat, even when I was hydrated. We were allowed 3 minutes to rest every hour, but were often only allowed to use a few seconds of that time due to how busy the store was.
    The parking lot was around six acres, and I only had two other employees helping me (except on Wednesday, when only one was available). Because of this, I frequently fell behind, only for the managers to scold me.

    One last problem was that the store was unwilling to switch me to part-time when I started going to college full-time. I had to quit because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Start sticking up for employees, and pay a wage that is worth working for. I would recommend a starting wage of $10.50 at the absolute minimum.
