    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A lot of different people to work with (ethnic and age). Diversity Decent salaries

    Cons

    Management very unprofessional (disrespectful) Work/Home Balance is poor Company shows no empathy when personal problems arise No growth opportunity past Assistant Manager

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people that work for you. Don't treat salaried managers like they don't have a personal life just because they are not hourly.

    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Walmart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can move up quickly at Wal-Mart.

    Cons

    Hours are not consistent. CAP 2 is the hardest job physically at Wal-Mart and the pay is the same or less than everyone else in the store. It's kind of disheartening to be busting my rear and having to watch others making the same money as I am just standing around doing nothing....

    Advice to Management

    None

      Alright pay for college student with little work

      Cons

      The managers are under pressure so you will be too

      Advice to Management

      Don’t be condescending if theres an issue address it and move on no need for a 20 min lecture

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      You get to meet some great people.

      Cons

      Turn overs are high, associates who have worked there for awhile are burned out. Could pay better

      Advice to Management

      Appreciate your associates with better pay and advance within instead of externally

      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Walmart part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Ok for entry-level positions only. Get work experience here, move on.

      Cons

      Pat you on the back one day, screw you the next day. Get sick once in a while and you are out. They'll find new employees to take your job then run you off.

      Advice to Management

      Seek out and reward good workers. End the arbitrary sick-day firings. Security in this place absolutely SUCKS. Grab and they furn you off. Top management doesn't care about employees, security or anything else at this store.

      Former Employee - Sales Associate in Cypress, TX

      Negative Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Walmart part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Very easy job, work with fun people, no supervision, your allowed 3 breaks most shifts, Walmart direct deposit card, no dress code, able to request more shifts all the time.

      Cons

      You can't really request certain days off on your schedule and when you try to it most likely will not be approved by a manager. They will make you work any days and shifts that they want and you really have no say in the matter.

      Advice to Management

      Let new hires know ahead of time that they will not be able to customize their schedule or request weekends off.

      Current Employee - Customer Service Manager in Cypress, TX
      Recommends
      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I personally had a great time being customer service manager. I considered all the front end and people throughout the store family. The people who worked at my store are great. Always staying busy so time moves fast. Personally I enjoy interacting with people so I honestly enjoyed being front end.

      Cons

      Management can be little stretchy but it is going to vary with each store. My assistant manager was awesome and really cared about our associates. Also it seems they like to cut people's hours so a lot of time we were short handed. We just had to do our best. Work is what you make it. It really isn't that difficult.

      Advice to Management

      Your associates are your family. We're willing to help if you're willing to listen.

      Positive Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Ecommerce is growing rapidly! $15 is more than enough for this specific job title. It’s fun, it’s new, and you really get to bond with your team! Almost like team sports as a kid!

      Cons

      Low moral, stores get hours cut a lot, everyday low cost means cutting a few corners on quality in general.

      Advice to Management

      Personally go up to associates and show appreciation. Bonuses are great, calling out associates on their performance motivates them and creates better people/employees.
