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

    Pros

    Good money, predictable home time, overnight parking at most stores, no touch freight

    Cons

    Slip seating, cameras, very restrictive phone policy, microphones in trucks, working weekends and holidays, our shop doesn’t have adequate help which increases slip seating. Oh yeah, did I mention slip seating? Sometimes 3 or 4 times a week

    Advice to Management

    You wouldn’t need your own truck driving school if you treated your senior drivers right but you already know that and integrity has become nothing more than a word but you know that too.

    Pros

    auto deposit system Paid on-time

    Cons

    Required to work at speeds that the managers could not even meet, continually reassigned to different tasks and reprimanded if not doing them all at the same time, told by Store Managers/ASM's/Team Leads to work over schedule hours and then cut it the later in the week sos it wouldn't show as OT

    Advice to Management

    Resign and allow Competent People to Replace you all.

    Pros

    Co-workers are really the best benefit to the position. Some are bad, but a majority of your team started on the floor and are local.

    Cons

    Senior Management staff will have favorites. Experienced ones get more work put on them with higher expectations than ones that are there just to get a pay check. A lot of changes happening in the company right now, and a lot of managers are leaving cause it’s a cut throat environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to policy and procedures. If you want to move up fast, have a degree and be ready to move a lot.

    Pros

    Easy, flexible (depending on manager), no prior skills required

    Cons

    Low pay, management chronically overworked, high turnover, chronically understaffed. Walmart used to treat their employees better, with holidays off, yearly performance raises of up to $0.60/hr. Now you don't even get time & a half on holidays, the raises are a measly 2% or 3%. Walmart also, depending on location, is anal about no overtime, even if your location is chronically understaffed. Consequently, they can't keep quality employees (in most cases), so your left with sour attitudes, mediocre employees, or walmart slaves that are content to be worked like a dog for little pay. They also have created a new scheduling system that cuts hours to already understaffed stores & in many cases leaves departments improperly staffed. Walmart lack of care for employees reinforce the negative stereotype of Walmart employees who are lazy & don't care. They are destroying their own business.
