    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I had a unique job at Walmart that I'll be honest, made me feel special :) I was on a team that was responsible for fulfilling online customer orders. Everyday we had fulfillment targets and it was always a fun challenge to work as a team to get the job done as quickly as possible. When we completed our main job, we would then have the opportunity to stock shelves, unload trucks or do other things that were needed. For...

    Cons

    While I appreciate how motivated my managers were, sometimes they were insensitive and flat out rude. Co-workers were not always helpful. Sometimes lacked a team spirit.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees at all times - treat them as equals and value their opinions

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Always options for overtime if you are willing.

    Cons

    Everything about the experience is miserable, management doesn’t know what they are doing and half the time you have to train them for some of the simplest things like using a register. Between the constant lack of staffing and the staff that does show up being apathetic towards their employment and roles it just makes a miserable environment.

    Advice to Management

    Try to remember what it was like to be an associate, and treat your employees the way you would have wanted your manager to treat you.

    I worked at Walmart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some nice co worker's, free meals at times in breakroom . Easy scheduling it's all done online/App you can pick up shifts easy.

    Cons

    Rude management, micromanaged work. Employees looked miserable some not friendly at all. Management talks down to you, like you're incompetent. All around soul sucking job! Huge turnover rate because of management. Work holidays and no holiday pay just a dumb voucher for 15% of merchandise which is a slap in the face. Also there orientation is a joke, they literally take you on a scavenger hunt around store and...

    I worked at Walmart part-time for more 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.
