    Advice to Management

    Prepare for workers to rise up, people are not happy and it is your fault. We're not all uneducated and we're aware of what evils Walmart does. Can't really blame employees for stealing when you see managers doing the same and worse.

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

    Pros

    Pays well with good benefits.

    Cons

    Treat you like crap..Dont train you well at all, but expect it perfect even your first few days of training, if you can call it that. No job security.

    Advice to Management

    Train better, stop dangling peoples job over their heads daily. Dont do write ups during training, help your people to be sucessful. Need a more positive environment. Learn how to retain your staff. You talk culture and values but practice none of it..
