    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the pros to working with Wal-Mart is they are Flexible wirh your scheduling when needed (dont abuse it), my share bonuses, benefits, promotions, teamwork, good base pays, good annual raises,

    Cons

    Some of the cons can be you have those who lower moral, complain, no holiday pay, and high turn over (due to people's work ethic these days is terrible).

    Advice to Management

    Please Complain up. Do not vent to hourly associates or become a friend instead of a leader. Do not coach an associate then spread the news on the salesfloor this lowers trust and moral.
