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

    Pros

    -For the ease of the job, getting paid $11/hr is not bad at all.
    -It's a very easy job.
    -If you're available on weekends AND nights, you will always have hours. Everyone will love you for that. No exaggeration.
    -There will be so many times where you feel great because of a customer interaction, or something that happened.
    -There's always the ability to move up at Walmart, if you really want it, and you work hard.
    -Walmart WILL work with your schedule, no matter what.

    Cons

    -If not available on weekends or nights, hours can fluctuate a lot.
    -Customers can sometimes be rude, when the littlest of things go wrong.
    -Waiting for replacements for your breaks and lunches can get frustrating when they don't come on time.
    -Benefits/Insurance is only for Full-time or those who average above 30+ hours a week. Full-time is very hard to get.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers, pay, hours, CSM were excellent.

    Cons

    Management was bad at this store. We used to have a great management team until we got a new store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Don't use everyone's personal lives as reasons to cut hours. The store manager told our scheduling manager to cut people's hours based on how many points they had from calling into work, which I believe to be very unfair.

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

    Pros

    Sales experience is good, networking (you meet a ton of people!), and it is easier to get noticed in electronics than any other dept. I have worked in.

    Cons

    You are stretched thin a lot, need to be good at multi-tasking and taking care of business when others may not!

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your little people or they will eventually get fed up with giving it their all with no respect in return and will find a company that will respect them.

    Make your own schedule, allowed to be I dependent and really learn how to be a manager. This is a great job for a first time manager.

    Very little advancement opportunity within Walmart for the Optical side of Health and Wellness. Slightly isolated from the rest of the store

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more advancement within the H&W branch for Optical.
