I worked at Walmart part-time (More than a year)
positive work environment, everyone is encouraged to develop and grow professionally, had a great time getting to know new people
I did not see myself working on the floor 10 or even 5 years down the road, needed to find the job that fit me better

A well-established system within the company. Continuous (and sometimes, brutal) customer interaction keeps it worth it and interesting. That part of the job is rewarding.
It is ridiculously easy for management to forget about the hard workers and take advantage of them simultaneously. On top of that, if you aren't a manager's favorite, you'll never have a chance at a higher position. They will literally see what they want to see. Plus, there is little-to-no training for those looking to move up.
Advice to Management
How about actually taking a good, close look at your associates before quickly judging them from a 10 second glimpse? There needs to be more of an emphasis on working with them to perform better, instead of disciplining them without granting a single chance.
Most of the people I worked with were nice (customers and employees)
Management has no training
The lack of security
Lack of pay
Working with so many ex-cons
Advice to Management
The customer is not always right. Stop forcing employees to break rules just so customers leave feeling like they got one over on us

fun coworkers. fast pace. holidays were always a surprise. customer service managers very helpful to new employees(at least to me). water allowed at register.
short breaks ,standing at register warranted. . chairs or stools would be nice. customers sometimes in a big hurry and forget to be a little nicer. fingertips wear out opening all those bags.
