    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My pay is fantastic.

    Cons

    As I have associates leave or transfer, I am not allowed to replace. I have been there almost 9 years. Started with 5 fulltime and 1 part time associate. I now have 3 fulltime at 34 hours and 1 part time at 20. I have less staff because I have long term associates so the pay is higher. They are telling me I am still over on payroll. Ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Give us payroll hours, not dollars. We can exceed patient expectations that way.
