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

    Pros

    There are not too many pros for working for this company unless you are salary. Only flexible schedule. I cant think of many pros for this company but I have to have at least twenty words

    Cons

    TERRIBLE Pay, lazy managers, rude customers, short staffed, extreme favoritism, no work and life balance. Too many ineffective new rules

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to keep all the money for yourselves! Hire more people stop cutting hours! Be more empathetic! Raise the pay for Cashiers because they have the WORST JOB IN THE STORE!

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The previous management used to listen to the associates so the store was doing good and the customers were happy too to come back again and again.

    Cons

    They are cutting hours all across the stores, never schedule enough cashiers and it gets really bad during the peak hours, the front always has to take the heat from the customers But the new management favors some "special people" with full-time hours.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and help the associates to keep their jobs,
