    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of great interaction with customers.

    Cons

    Constant down sizing, in order to improve their profit margins. They are cutting out many part-time workers, and cutting down the hours of full time workers. They are also winding all of the stores down to eliminate all 24 hour stores within the next couple of years. The way that they are structuring the change, no one will even notice how many people lost their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Get out while you can! Every store has already lost two co-managers, you will be next.

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

    Pros

    Great starting rate for cashiers
    Easy training online
    Knoxville location has good management and nice associates

    Cons

    Can be a little boring or repetitive on days
    You have to start at part-time and stay on it for at least 90 days to prove you are a good worker

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your associates and doing what you can to work with their schedules and their life situations, it definitely makes a difference

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Store Walmart #0685
    40 hours a week in Auto Care, Steady Work, "some Friendly People"

    Cons

    Constantly Changing Hours, impossible to get a normal Sleep Schedule
    Store #0685, They make up rules that fit their Agenda, They frown at reporting rules being broken, they adjust your hours of work for customers aka staying over then making you remove the time you stayed over the next day on your lunch. MANY threats of being fired over following corp policy.

    These Cons are for Store #0685 and not all Walmart's, My previous store was AMAZING #0238

    Advice to Management

    Corporate Management needs to look into corrupt store and co-managers. I reported concerns to Market Managers and was told to deal with Store Managers that Like Making Up Rules so I was thrown back to the wolves and told I was the Problem.
