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

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are very good. Most of the time, work/life balance is also good. I am usually given the resources and autonomy to run my area as needed.

    Micromanagement from above the store level. Constant demands to run the business at a high level of execution but with fewer hours and people to do so. The people, the CORE of the business don't matter anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the people IN the stores are saying. We know what we need to do.
