    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 6 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.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    People I work with, serving customers being able to help others and teaching.

    Cons

    Corporate not putting back into the employs, giving market position to those that have no skill running a market or putting them in place using the buddy system. To unstable, to many changes at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Your workers are your front line, they give the experience to the customer of being a Walmart shopper. They need to be taken care of. The Bell Curve does not work. Not all ASM are solid, some are exceeds and others are roll models, these do not get handed out in are market.

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

    Pros

    Some friendly coworkers and easy to get to on the bus route

    Cons

    Lack of communication between Dept. Manager and workers, lack of organization of items in store, lack of care from those at the top.. Probably the worst Wal-Mart i've been to and that's saying something.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure each dept. manager is actually there to help manage THEIR dept. Make sure that overnight and stockers in general know where things are supposed to go so that customers actually know how much things cost and so that restocking can be much easier.. Also let those that work part time actually work part time meaning don't work them 5 days a week with only 5 hours per day. Give them a full day hours that would fit...

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Been with the company 11 years. I have seen many many changes (inventory processes changed 3 times, pay changes several times, people fired wrongfully numerous times, people hired and promoted to avoid discrimination numerous times, and many other things this little box can't hold). Each store is like a family (not a team) amongst associates and management if you invite it to be.

    Cons

    Sam Walton's theoretical beliefs are no longer followed. Don't believe me? Search quotes by Sam Walton and then ask yourself if they are still followed (if you're employed by WalMart). At one time it was company direction to have these quotes hanging in offices with his picture in the background. Not anymore though. Because it's no longer about associates or how they feel about the work environment. It's only about...

    Advice to Management

    Be open with all associates as much as possible. Not just about work, but also about anything personal, if they need or want to talk about it. Also to hourly associates, the information that your told, like jobs being eliminated or pay rate change, are generally told to management the day they are to be told to you. Not all the time, but a lot. Also, your pay is being increased, has been across the last 2 years. Reason...

    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The schedule was different every week. I like to have a set schedule but it was not possible.

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