    Great people and a nice place to work. I enjoyed my computer workers. The training was easy and flexible.

    Learn from your employees. They are the ones that work with the customers directly and know exactly the needs of the customers.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    I love working in an environment that changes and retail is certainly that. You have the opportunity to express ideas, be creative, develop, and grow.

    Cons

    Only closes one day a year so holidays with the family takes planning around business needs. Other than that I don't have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Management works hard to make everything fall in to place. Explain the "why" to everyone and be upbeat about a team culture.

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

    Pros

    Easy money, easy work. Lots of training.

    Cons

    Your days and hours of work are NEVER the same. Hard to schedule appointments well in advanced due to not knowing your schedule only two weeks in advance.

    Advice to Management

    Adults are like most babies. They need to be on a schedule. Keep employees schedules the same as much as possible.

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

    Pros

    -they were great with working with me on my school schedule
    -management often showed gratitude for hard work and a job well done

    Cons

    The pay wasn't great and I often had to pick up the slack of other workers. I always felt a little resentful that I worked 10 times as hard but still probably got paid only as much or less than others.

    Advice to Management

    I would say ask more of your employees. I found that most employees got away with doing as little as possible.

    Pros

    Love keeping the customers happy, love the benifites love the bonus we get

    Cons

    Rude customers sometime you never get your full 40 hours and under paid they also don't accept doctors note if you get sick so if your really sick and had to go to the ER you get a point

    Advice to Management

    I think they should stop giving points for doctors note I rarely get sick but when my husband worked he got so sick he had to miss three days although he had a doc note they didn't care all they said was you will still get a point heartless

    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Nashville, TN
    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Nashville, TN

    Pros

    There is a pretty good level of job security.

    Cons

    Walmart has a lot of systems in place that do not work. Been trying to order needed supplies for over 6 months, can't seem to get them and they are holding me back. Overall the replenishing is horrible, inventory counts change for no reason, items are not ordered in a timely manner. When a market manager walks with you, all of this is your fault, out of merchandise, your fault, inventory off, your fault. When things go wrong the ASM are expected to work extra days for free, including Christmas time.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be promoted you must be with a store manager that will work with you. Your store manager will be the single reason you get promoted, find yourself in a store with a manager who does not seem to like you, get out of that store.
