    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,

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

    Pros

    I don't enjoy shopping, so working at Walmart just walking by through the isles I would see things I needed and then at lunch I would do my shopping.

    Cons

    Having to share my register, when I would go on brake or lunch and finding out the next day my drawer was short.

    Advice to Management

    Close the cashiers line when he or she goes to lunch or break and you'll see the drawer won't be short.

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

    Pros

    Great experience and great people to work with. Good entry level job to learn how to run a large volume retail store. Excellent skills to boost your resume and lots of networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Long hours and unpredictable schedule= no work/life balance. Constantly expected to do more and take on additional responsibility with less resources and staff. Constant turnover with associates and management.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people more, it would help with the turnover problem. Don't threaten people's jobs to motivate them to work harder. There are better ways to get your team engaged.

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

    Pros

    Typical Sales job. A lot of chaos at first while you learn the ropes but once you do you barely have to think about it. Good people to work with for the most part though

    Cons

    You will get cussed out by customers. A lot. Can't give them the price they think is right and they will feel entitled to lecture you. No commissions doesn't help either. Still, it could be far worse.

    Advice to Management

    Have more organized practical training for new hires after the initial computer simulations instead of just having the individual department managers do it in whatever order or priority they think is best.
