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

    Pros

    positive work environment, everyone is encouraged to develop and grow professionally, had a great time getting to know new people

    Cons

    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

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

  3. "Cashier"

    Pros

    Most of the people I worked with were nice (customers and employees)
    Discount
    401k, eventually

    Cons

    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

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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
