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

    Pros

    Opportunity to advance quickly based upon performance is the main pro here. If you call in too much, you're chances of being promoted decrease drastically. Open door policy allows your voice to be heard. Attendance policy is pretty good (9 absences in a rolling 6 month period is a lot in my opinion). Fast vacation accrual for full time associates.

    Cons

    Hard work and little pay, high expectations on certain tasks, mundane and tedious work, low pay, rude and sketchy customers, gossiping co-workers...the list goes on.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers tend to be lazy while others work like a mule. Balancing managers out can increase morale in the store. As the saying goes, it rolls downhill. Listen and find solutions to associates problems instead of just "understanding" a situation. For the sake of all your employees, treat them good. They are there to work for you.

    I dont think there would be any challenges working there beside learing the system.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The positions have flexible hours, and some of your coworkers will be hilarious and make the workday a lot better. Most customers are nice and easy to please, but there's always that one.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible, and you will be treated like a brain-dead ape. The managers are sexist bastards because you can't be a woman and lift over 30pds with ease. People distancely-related to HR/management will be offer advancements and better wages before you, even if you have more experience and knowledge of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back merit raises because what's the point of getting my picture on the wall for a month if I get nothing else for it??

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

    Advancement was there if you got to know the right people and could somehow make it work with the pay. Great discount after 6 months.

    Cons

    Low pay, horrible benefits, uncaring management

    I have been working at Walmart (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They give you a decent amount of paid time off and you very rarely have to work overtime. I have gotten three pay raises in the three years I've worked there. In the small town I live in they actually pay better than the other pharmacies here.

    Cons

    Extremely busy pharmacy that does a lot of prescriptions, almost always is a line of people waiting between 9-6. Having to stop what you are doing in order to answer the phone is a constant throughout the day if you are a tech. Prescription plan is ok, but really high deductible for medical plan, have to pay over $3000 out of pocket before they pick anything up.

    Advice to Management

    Could re organize the work tasks so that person at drop off isn't always overwhelmed with having to help customers, call doctor's offices, answer the phone in addition to trying to keep up with the input and resolution queues as well.

    Pros

    Its a job.

    Cons

    low pay management is disconnected from what reality. They say they care so much about their employees and they will show it by given everyone a free lunch. but if you miss four days in six months, even if you are in the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    recognize the good that people do let it stand for at least as much as someones mistakes.
