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

    Pros

    It payed well for an entry level job, and it provided good experience in multiple areas of the store with abilities to branch out.

    Cons

    it could be a bit stressful a times, making sure the floor was stocked on time with quality products that the customers would be satisfied with. And of course the oven could get hot.

    Advice to Management

    Not really much to say, department heads kept things in order and mostly made sure associates were comfortable with their job. keep up the good work

    "Coaching is not for Success!!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Jacksonville, FL
    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Jacksonville, FL

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

    Pros

    They advertise Flexible hours, above average wages. teaching and training,

    Cons

    If you don't have an open availability you don't get hours even if your full time example- you must have 7 days a week open 6 a.m.-11 p.m. You can also be coached at anytime for anything. Managers are to quick to coach. They forget that they are messing with people's lively hoods. They do now start at
     $12.00 hr

    Advice to Management

    Remember!!! You too were a Co Manager!!!

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

    Pros

    When you have the right CSM's and coworkers, Walmart is generally a great place to work. With 100% availability, you also get more hours.

    Cons

    Avoid getting mixed up with the wrong people. They're always watching!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of tattletales and slackers. They make the rest of us work harder for the same amount of money.

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

    Pros

    the 401 is the only reason worth working there if you can even afford to pay into it

    Cons

    automated systems make management useless unless you're part of the "in crowd"

    It's literally an adult day care and felt as if a continuation of high school which even the older employees loved taking part in

    If you've shopped in one you know they're all the same and it can be said for working there as well having experienced time in multiple locations my personal experience and communications with other employees has verified this

    I thought if I only worked in departments where I was never on the sales floor for very long i'd be able to tolerate limited interaction with the most vile examples of humanity but there is no escape from them and the torment you will forced to smile through

    rules are selectively enforced with a do as i say not as i do mentality that is widespread at every level of the "chain o' command" making the open door policy worthless compiled with gossip compromising any level of secrecy you might expect in a professional setting

    Advice to Management

    destroy the machine

    Pros

    Customers, Hours, Location, Most associates, Position

    Cons

    Most associates, Some Customers, Management, disrespectfulness, attitudes, and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    You are an example of what others should do. Practice what you preach. Inappropriate exchanges between you and customers and you and associates should be eliminated. Certain issues should be discussed in the office not sales floor. There should not be disrespectful behavior towards employees period. Benefits should not cost half a paycheck. And to top it off Store Managers should not only converse with other high up managers only. Get to know your associates. Show appreciation towards the workers.
