    Pros

    You'll gain some experience in the retail environment

    Cons

    Too many cons for this position at this specific Walmart at least. Their expectations are way too high for the amount of employees they have; there's only about 10-12 cap 2 workers when we're supposed to have about 20. They expect you to be super man and do everything within an unrealistic time limit that is too short and without too much help. Watch out for some of the supervisors because they're lazy pieces of crap let me tell you; I'm not saying this to make them sound bad it's just true. You'll see who I'm talking about. All they like to do is bark orders at you and not step in and help out once in a while.

    The pay is terrible for the work that we do $9.75/ hr it's just not worth it. I'd keep looking for a different job or department in Walmart. Cap 2 is not the way to go. Realized that mistake on day 1. I was only there for almost 3 months and already knew I had to get out of there so I luckily found a better job and left.

    Advice to Management

    Get your crap together. Why don't you guys actually step in and help the team out instead of barking orders And making their days miserable. It's just going to want to make more good people less motivated to do an already exhausting job and quit. do something about that and maybe things will turn out better. If you actually raised the pay more people will be motivated to work even harder but I know that's not going to happen.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They worked with your schedule and pay was good while I was part time in school. Easy tasks consisted of folding clothes and just making sure everything look organized.

    Cons

    It may be tricky to get switched to a different location based on how long you've been there. If you don't like to fold clothes and find monotonous then make sure you apply for something like cashing (which I wasn't old enough at the time)
