    I worked at Walmart as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tennessee and California can combine. I love Portland and the Boston Port. Florida is possibly rising

    Cons

    Away from Boston, Massachusetts. Vancouver is away and it is better to use just the Seattle Port.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great opportunity to learn, empathize and possibly even help the often times marginalized and downtrodden workers of this despot totalitarian regime.

    Cons

    Constant walls to progress hinder our daily work and make life difficult and often times barely manageable. A culture mired in quagmire of red tape, relentless retaliation against its own and proud of its own arrogance and ability to deceive the masses. Regardless of the position, or years of service, corruption and greed are the hall marks of this corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Sam Walton would roll in the grave if he knew how management has decimated the values he stood for during his tenure.

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

    Pros

    It built me as far as being patient, staying calm and productive under pressure yet executing tasks with sense of urgency

    Cons

    Management. Retaliation and favoritism is seen.. very very discouraging

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example... no shortcuts and train yourself before you try and train a hopeful associate that is eager and willing to advance their Walmart career. Always stay professional.. do not try and make friends with everybody. Lead by example

    Pros

    It's a temp job if you really need money.

    Cons

    They work you like a horse bit pay you with peanuts. Management is horrible the hours are horrible the pay is horrible. There is nothing I can say good about working at Wally World.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat your employees better

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

    Pros

    Wal-Mart employees for the most part band together as a team and are helpful and courteous to customers even when faced with ridiculous demands. Management is easily approachable. Our store would have lots of team-building events, such as celebrating birthdays, holidays, and sales contests. If you want to advance in Walmart you certainly can do it, but the hours can be brutal.

    Cons

    Office facilities for cash counting and deposit verification are tiny and not well-ventilated. I got headaches from the rising temperatures. At times my closed office would reach 80 degrees from the heat of the large recycler cash machine. Also, customer demands can be ridiculous. Associates have to grin and bear it.

    Advice to Management

    Be aggressive in weeding out the deadwood employees. Many are slackers which makes it difficult for the real workers to give you their best.
