    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.

    Pros

    Good company to work for if you want to work your butt off. Associates and department managers make each store pleasant working environment.

    Cons

    Upper management do not listen and have their firm favorites. Even reporting stuff to ethics or your HR does not get anything done. Open door policy is more like a closed one.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t do it unless you don’t mind being ridiculed.
