    Pros

    At Walmart they have Great hours here. And working here is like starting a second big family or as some would say High school all over again.

    Cons

    Help is suppose to be the biggest goal , management usually is not happy when asked for help. Sometimes we get rolled eyes and smacked lips but it's not often.

    Keep a smile

    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Work in the warehouse. Best part is I dont have to talk to customers most of the day. Managers are cool.

    Cons

    Pay isnt great, no employee restrooms, crackheads take showers in the bathroom, the smoking section outside is like home for crackheads. Some coworkers cant memorize like 20 numbers (truck unloading process) and they mess everything up. Apathy for the job, some dude walked out midshift, the pallet jacks are all messed up, rocket carts are jankey, PLE barely works, hell nobody is certified to even use it so it dosnt matter.

    Advice to Management

    Please, lets hook it up with some suggestion boxes. See what the peons want . MOst of the managers are cool, but the overnight managers expect to much from cap2

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

    Pros

    discounts
    unique people to work with
    the break is nice
    You get to work within the photo department, so its secluded from the rest of the store

    Cons

    no holidays off
    customers can be rude
    the manager can also be rude
    Some days can be very slow and you might be sent home early

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding and allow people to take sick days off when they are SICK. For the most part the staff was ok, I did not dread to go to work.
