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

    Pros

    lots of hours and starting wage is higher then most starting level jobs. Has options for different skills to learn and areas of the store to work in.

    Cons

    Depending on where you work in the store the labor is quite intensive. The turnover rate is quite high so you will likely wind up understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Work on maintaining a working system for both the claims and cap system because they often times going down. being more personal with your employees will make them feel like they're part of something as opposed to feeling like just another worker. maybe make a harder effort to find employees to fill the busy days. offering people who work hard a raise will likely make them work harder for another raise or make others take note and work harder for a raise. And just generally keep the employees in mind because we don't feel quite that important.
