    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Much higher starting pay rates. A lot of advancement opportunities. A decent benefits package.

    Cons

    Have to work a lot of the holidays. Always have to end a meeting with the Walmart cheer.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked with a lot of talented managers, but some still need to work on their communication. Stop making us do the cheer, no one likes it and it doesn't boost the morale.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Overall experience in retail and customer service, co-workers (depending on your location),

    Cons

    Management, low morale, promotion opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the voice of your sales associates. They interact with customers at a higher consistency than you do, and have insight to possible solutions (to customer satisfaction, zoning, floor maintenance) that you might not see. Many have a good sense of what is going on and have valuable information to give you. Trust them.
