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

    Pros

    The pay, and some of the interesting people you meet/work with and make connections with. You get a discount card after 3 months that can take quite a bit off of certain items, and you get a discount at partnering businesses (Such as vision center, automotive department, hair cutting salon). During the holiday season they gave an increased percentage discount for employees on grocery items. After 6 months (probationary pay) your pay should be bumped to $10 an hour.

    Cons

    In the position I work in, management will often pull you and your coworkers to different departments or up front to help check. You never know when or if you will be allowed to return back to your department and the tasks still needing to be done there. One manager will tell you to do one thing, and another manager will come in and start getting on to you for doing it. In my experience, even after I explained that I had just been doing what I was tasked to do, their attitude towards me didnt change and they wouldn't recognize that they shouldn't have immediately blamed me without learning all the details first. Sometimes they will assign you to refill an empty mod or rack with a different item, and then immediately tell you to refill it with something different, even if you had asked them the first time if there was a specific type/brand of item they wanted put on it. We are often short staffed on days we need people the most and have too many on days that are slower. You will often have to work Fitting Room when they havent scheduled a Fitting Room assigned associate to work it. They will say they are looking for a replacement for employees who have either quit or transferred departments and take months to hire a new one.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of how the department managers, support managers and supervisors treat associates.

    Pros

    Very motivated workers and experienced staff. People stay with this company for a lifetime.

    Busy pharmacies are understaffed. It's like punishment for doing your job well and growing the business.

    Focus on the metrics that matter most and relax on some of the small tasks that don't impact customer service or quality of life.

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

    Pros

    I worked for a wonderful manager in the pharmacy. He was very adept at recognizing the strengths of his employees and putting them to good use. He also was good at recognizing good and poor performance and making note of said performance. It was a close knit group of individuals that I worked with. I only left due to other responsibilities in my life that took precedence.

    Cons

    Walmart Corporate removed medical benefits while I was employed there. It made it tough on those of us who had depended on those benefits. At the store level, many times their quota deficiencies meant that the pharmacy, which was over-performing year after year, would have to cut hours in order for the store to make their required numbers.

    Advice to Management

    You should not penalize one area of a store (pharmacy) that is performing above prior year’s numbers due to the main store's inability to meet numbers or people budget. Taxing that area which has performed well yet not rewarding, but penalizing by cutting hours-due to store deficit, making the few work even hard to meet new higher numbers just does not make good sense.

    They are fair and pay well most managers are good and fair but some are not but it is a great experience.

    Cons

    Assistant managers are a major problem for the company. They need to get control on them some should not be over anyone .

    Advice to Management

    Allow your associates more time for doctors and things for there children you need to except doctor's notes
