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

    Pros

    Lunches are crazy long, an eight hour shift having an hour long lunch and two 15 minute breaks is amazing and I admit I was spoiled

    Not too difficult

    Cons

    Hours aren't consistent and dealing with people not scheduled to assist the department can be a pain.

    Doing the team lift by yourself

    Safety hazard grabbing shelving from the back room using a ladder and your will to live another day sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    With poor management, the store can really suffer when it shouldn't. Before I left I had an ASM who did such a poor job during our remodeling that it was delayed because of poor communication between him, other managers and the supplies we needed that it was delayed and was a huge pain to employees and customers. I've seen Walmart run smoothly and it definitely can under the right guys.
