    I worked at Walmart part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the.interaction with the customers and staff. Duties were fully explained so you knew what was expected of you. Supervisors and Assistant Managers were available if you needed their help. Work hours were great. I am a morning person so I did get day hours early start.

    Cons

    Sort on employees a lot. Cashiers were always needed. When I went through the store on break I would let the customers know if a line was shorter so they didn't have to wait.

    Advice to Management

    Keep more cashiers hired. Have a stand by on call list..

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

    Pros

    Plenty of work to do
    Decent team work environment
    Management was willing to work with Religious views on holidays

    Cons

    Some associates try to get out of doing their work and ended up having to cover theirs as well
    Time clock system is kind of a joke -- you will be called to the office if your just minutes off on your time punch

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your associates and team -- give a little more wiggle room on the time clock

    Health insurance is dirt cheap, workload can get heavy at some times but it depends on your manager. As long as you show up to work and do your job you’ll be appreciated.

    Pros

    If you come to work with a smile, the right attitude, and the demeanor to tackle any obstacle your way, then everything will be smooth sailing.

    Cons

    If you're not feeling 100%, then you will not have a pleasant experience. In fact, quite the opposite.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites, make fair schedules, let your younger associates have some time to themselves once in a while and offer opportunities for full time, not empty promises.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    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 the most part, it was fun work.

    One of the big benefits working for Walmart is the opportunity for career advancement. This is somewhat dependent on your education, but what job isn't? While I didn't pursue further employment, I discussed my choices with upper management and if desired, could have continued a career at one of their HQs.

    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

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    Was able to get hired there, okay pay, had 401k and benefits-health, vision to choose from, had flexible hours and employee discount card

    Cons

    Got away from holiday pay, had to do pathways and the annual pay raises were low-like 2% of your hourly pay

    Advice to Management

    Be more positive and give encouragement
