    Pros

    Typically pretty cool coworkers Pay is very nice for a starting job Tasks are simple, even if they become complex due to customers

    Cons

    The corporation is horrible to their employees Management had a power complex Store Manager wouldn't know friendly if it was in his face Was frequently asked to do work out of my paygrade and threatened with coaches if it wasn't done (Running four departments on my own during the holidays.)

    Advice to Management

    Just care about your employees. We aren't magical, we need assistance sometimes.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love almost all of the managers that I have met, and my coworkers are great to work with. Everyone is kind, fun, and everyone on my side of the store seems to get along and work well together. I personally have a great boss who will do his best to give you a schedule that works for you. If you like helping people, talking to people, and being in a fast paced environment, and you are a generally happy/friendly...

    Cons

    The department is understaffed (as is the entire store) and overworked. There are always new projects ontop of an already heavy load. We keep our register open all day, so we have to run back and forth between our new projects, regular duties, and running the register. Training was poor. Most everything is learned on the job when that task is given to you. Despite all the training videos they make you watch when you...

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. Get on top of when people get to have their required breaks. Pay attention to who works hard and who knows what they are doing. If an employee is doing their best, and knows what is always needing done, remind them briefly of their task that day, and leave them to do it.

      I have been working at Walmart part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      The starting pay is $11.00 per hour the job itself is pretty easy, and you get lots of breaks. After six months, you get 20% off general merchandise and fresh produce. After a year, you get health insurance benefits and a 401K. Great career job.

      Cons

      The attendance policy is very strict for the first six months. It is the number one reason for dismissal. Also, the expectations are NOT clearly explained, and the management is very shotty.

      Advice to Management

      The attendance policy needs to be more flexible.

        Pros

        To earn money to pay for supplies

        Just pay $250.00 a week or a little less only
