More Pros and Cons

  1. "Walmart IMS Unloader"

    Former Employee - Inventory Management Specialist in Huntsville, AL
    Former Employee - Inventory Management Specialist in Huntsville, AL

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

    Pros

    Standards are pretty low, so you don't have to put in much effort to get a job and even impress your supervisors. Work was not too hard. They were pretty relaxed with us taking breaks longer than the allotted time.

    Cons

    Some of the people who work there and some of the people who shop there are irresponsible and lazy, but usually the really bad ones get fired. Pay is not great especially considering the hours which can be inconvenient.

    I worked at Walmart (More than a year)

    Pros

    10% discount. Casual dress code. Decent insurance for your pay and hours.

    Cons

    Inexperienced managers with super big egos. Walmart really doesn’t care if you die in a hospital bed or not. They will use all the rituals to bring you back to life so you can work tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the best people get stuck doing scut work and the dumb get promoted.

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

    Pros

    Its a job with a paycheck.

    Cons

    Shifts are 4 am -1 pm, 7 am to 4pm and 11 am to 8 pm. Employees are worked to exhaustion by management to meet their metrics. You work very hard for little pay. They keep you as part time by giving you 32 hours one week and 40 the next. They are on a bi weekly pay and schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Know what it actually takes for your subordinates to do their jobs.

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

    Pros

    At my store 0332 at the time I came in I reach full time status fairly quick. At 10.50 an hour it's pretty good pay health benefits.

    Cons

    At my store the recently promoted two people to department managers and they haven't even been here long enough to receive their discount cards.

    Understaffed
    Changed your schedule and not notify you of the change

    HR Doesn't seem to be for you like it should

    Lazy management

    If you limit your availability they will make you sure you receive no hours

    Pros

    Decent 401k and stock options. Opportunities to advance to managerial positions without an education. 10% discount on all non-food and non-clearance products.

    Average employee at all levels only want to keep their jobs rather than excel, so those that do wish to excel often pick up the slack of multiple under-performing associates.

    Advice to Management

    If someone doesn't show up to work don't make excuses for them. If they don't want to work find someone that does.
