    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Room to advance is available

    Cons

    Room for advancement is available/ but no work life balance. Always feeling not valued. Moves to the academy (less stressed right- NO) every day working in the store doing freight. Management doesn't listen to concerns. Demeaning managers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, be watchful and actually try to encourage or Inspire your team.

    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 worked at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At least you can find a Walmart in every corner of America . . . which is also a con because any where Walmart goes, failed small family businesses follow. So basically, if you want to work at Walmart, walk a couple miles in either direction and you'll find one.

    Cons

    Low wage, no benefits, 15 cent raise every 6 months, $7.25 per hour (Kentucky), horrible schedule that changes every single week, no room to grow unless you luckily become the store manager. The assistant managers don't make much. I'd estimate that the CEO makes more in one hour than a Walmart Cashier does in one year. So unless you're the CEO or owner, you'll probably be on food stamps.

    Advice to Management

    Dear Management & CEO,

    I was paid $7.25 per hour with no benefits. All the cashiers were scheduled to work 1 hour under the limit to receive benefits. I had to get food stamps to live on this wage and when I showed up to the food stamp office, they already had a whole profile setup for people who work at Walmart. Walmart is the richest corporation in the entire world, why not share a little money with your workers? I mean, the cheap Chinese products probably only cost 1 cent while Walmart turns around and sells it for $3. I'm sure the profits Walmart makes are substantial enough to pay all their cashiers and sales associates at least $60,000 per year.

    Sincerely,

    A former Cashier at the Berea, KY Walmart

    I worked at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discount after 90 days that’s about the only pro to working there

    Cons

    Horrible management. To many managers all have no real management skills and are not on the same page. They want you to work like a dog while they walk around and talk. You get 32 hours a week so that you get no benefits and can’t really afford to live. Most employees are on food stamps and government assistance. They are desperate and will hire anyone now as nobody wants to work there now. Store was always short handed. Turn over is horrible and they don’t care they just keep grinding hoping someone sticks. Probably 1 out of 10 stays past 30 days.

    Advice to Management

    Try to see people as an asset not a commodity You need to try to hire better people so that your decent doesn’t always have to pull the slack of the idiots you keep throwing out there. And focus more on your store instead of your social cirvle
