    Pros

    Comfortable schedule. Hours are okay depending on your job code. Able to get promoted.

    Cons

    Stressful especially during holidays. Company doesn’t really care about a persons life outside of the company. Management are either in a good mood or bad depending on their boss. Management just sucks basically. You’ll find maybe 1 or 2 good managers but that’s like it.

    Advice to Management

    STOP BEING LAZY ! Just learn what you have to do and follow through with it. Don’t be a jerk about things all the time. Doesn’t get you respect.

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

    Pros

    It's a job. That's pretty much it.

    Cons

    You are informed your pay will be 10hr but when you are hired, you are then told your pay is $9hr until you are at the company for 6 months. Walmart is all about if you fit in with "Management". If you don't treat them like royalty, or call them out on questionable practices, your schedule will change when you are not aware, and or your hrs will be cut to nothing until you quit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring managers, promoting people based on how much they kiss up to you, or if they "friend" you on facebook.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get an extra $1.50 for working the night shift and sacrificing normal sleeping hours. When you leave you don't really have the burden of taking your work with you. Daytime management will access the job of overnights work and assign daytime workers accordingly to get through the freight.

    The freight will be worked no matter what. It has to be because another 2 trucks are coming tonight.

    As a night associate you won't have to deal with customers.

    Cons

    Expectation from my management staff are unreasonable. As overnight you are just stocking but even people that are new are thrown in departments and they have no idea where anything goes and yet you are still expected to get through the freight of a person experienced with the department without a scanner to show item location.

    And you just have to hope you don't get that put in that department the next night because you are swimming in the wake of a person who put items in seemingly random places.

    Advice to Management

    The cost of having every employee with a scanner to put things in their proper locations is completely justified at all times. To pay a person to plug and destroy the modular integrity of a department will leave you paying another employee to fix it.

    Now just imagine if it was done right the first time.
