    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

    Pros

    Pay is better than most Distribution Centers.

    Cons

    Orderfilling is a hard job (which doesn't bother me) but it is by far the hardest job to keep. If you want a job for more than 9 months to a year, don't become an orderfiller.

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

    Pros

    There is a misery loves company kind of family bonding going on between associates and I love my customers.

    Cons

    Management has no clue what either hand is doing. Walmart managers can't even spell communication. Associates are treated like robots ordered to complete whatever task managers deem and are not treated with the minimum level of respect due another human being. Don't get hurt because you then discover just how little you and your well being mean to the corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Look up communication and put the definition in their everyday interactions with workers. You get better results when you are a practicing participant in the Walmart conversation. Without ground level associates managers can't get the job done. Act like you need us. Treat us like we are a valued member of the team.
