    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I loved working at walmart, management was awesome and down to earth... loved my job and helping customers find what they need .. i love the challenges and benefits

    Cons

    Sometimes the stress was overwhelming, sometimes customers are rude and kids are wild, sometimes not being aprreciated for the work you've done,

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to your employees and give them credit for their work and be sociable to all employees, not just your friends or crowd, never talk to an employee in front of customers or other workers if they've done something wrong, take them to the office and shut the door.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (Less 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.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment, good benefits for dedicated employees, above minimum wage pay.

    Cons

    Little support from management. Sometimes there are a million things that need to be done at the same time. (i.e. Rotisserie chickens, fried chicken, dishes, etc...). Can be a very stressful occupation during busy hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understandable of your deli associates. They need at least TWO employees assisting customers at all times. Sometimes management wants employees to leave the area when it is inappropriate to customers.

    Managers show Favoritism, unattainable time goals (no two people are the same, folks) and punishment when you can't meet time goals.

    Advice to Management

    Value your slower but harder workers!

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Promotable positions posted in several areas, finally closing wage gap, employees can become like family. Annual bonus is nice. Overall a great company.

    Cons

    Favoritism, lack of communication skills, work life balance hasn't been found yet. Not all of your peers will have the same work ethic as you do. Routinely have to pick up slack of peers.

    Advice to Management

    Communication regardless of the situation.
