    Pros

    Prices and large stores to accommodate the crowds. Remodeling of stores to super stores appealing to customers and employees not on top of each other.

    Cons

    Bad service and not enough registers open. Scheduling can be improved to accommodate the crowds without having to rush us back and fourth from opposite ends of the store and get stuck with angry customers.

    Advice to Management

    Get more employees to be on the floor during peak hours

    Putting in a lot of work for terrible pay. Only a raise of 40-50 cents a year. Job gets old really quick.

    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.
