    Pros

    High paying, Great attendance policy, good bonus system, cheap insurance, good pay raise system, fair production goals, mostly good management.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, LACK OF AIR CONDITIONING(!!!), Things change and you hear from word of mouth and never know what's true.

    Advice to Management

    all changes to policy should be communicated. Let people volunteer for grass roots as it is currently random and some of us have ideas.

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

    Pros

    Not the most demanding and decent compensation compared to some previous jobs i've had.

    Cons

    It varies by store but most of the problems i've ran into are from the managers, other than that it is a pretty solid company although like other big companies they may not always look out for individuals as they have a much bigger picture to look at.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, there isn't too much for management other than making sure they have facts about the whole situation in one area or another before calling it out, since it may create some unneeded tensions. However, you can find that just about everywhere and overall my experiences with management at my current position is more or less pretty decent.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    it was nice having fellow associates that work together it was like a second family in the store i may not work there anymore due to mgmt issues, but i still talk to majority of my coworkers

    Cons

    it depends on management sometimes u have a good team of mgmt other times u do not i suggest if u go to walmart learn the management and who will actually help you versus the ones that will not. The problem i had was over the lack of hours if u talk to right ones they will give u extra hours where the others will not and u are down to 12 hours or less its crazy and its just getting worse

    Advice to Management

    if u want associates to stay in your store treat them like actual people not work animals i promise respect goes a long way people might actually stay if u have respect for everyone not just other management

    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
