    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Never the same task each day

    Cons

    schedules change every week, never any consistent hours. Too many people in charge more management than employees and the direction changes costantly with no manager on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    Consistent schedule, managers should have the same goals for the day and have one point person to complete daily task

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

    Pros

    -Decent pay
    -Plenty of opportunity to move up in the ranks
    -Plenty of breaks

    Cons

    -They will do whatever they can to not give you full time hours. I worked 38 hours per week for the most part, which is just 2 hours short of full time. Working part time I was not given all the benefits of vacation and 401k pay.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    With my current position I don't have a lot of overwatch. My direct supervisor lives a state away. Travel is best perk.

    Cons

    Work a lot. Away from home a lot. Easy to get burnt out quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to your associates and make sure they aren't working themselves into the ground do to the lack of things to do. Being away from home doesn't mean you need to work 15 hour days because you don't have your home to go to.

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

    Pros

    - Paid bi-weekly
    - $1 raise after you complete pathways (you start at $9)
    - They'll follow you availability (except during holidays, one time on Black Friday I got a split shift. Worked 8 am - 12 pm, came back in at 5:30 pm to help ring up customers)

    Cons

    - Hard to move up, hard to move into a different department
    - If hired for another department and you get register trained expect to be called up every day to help ring
    - Customers will yell you at over .02 price discrepancy and expect
    - CSM (or CSS) will typically side with the customer and if you say one thing they'll contradict you
    - Getting called every name in the book for something not your fault by customers. We're at the register all day long. We don't know about other departments, prices, sales, or anything that doesn't involving ringing up your items.
    - Cashiers are trained for 1 day on the register most of the times
    - Employees come and go very quickly

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your cashiers and side with them instead of automatically giving into the customers.
