    Advice to Management

    Be more open to your employees and give them credit for their work and be sociable to all employees, not just your friends or crowd, never talk to an employee in front of customers or other workers if they've done something wrong, take them to the office and shut the door.

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

    Pros

    Being able to buy food on break was the best thing to me.
    The old lady's make good coffee

    Cons

    Shift is 10 to 7, You're there for 9 hours, Only get paid for 8, If it takes you 8.5 hours to complete your section the manager will go back in and change it to 8 because "we don't offer overtime".
    Unpaid break.
    I applied for part time but they gave me full time including weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be rude to new employees when the whole problem is that you have a lack of overnight employees. C'mon fam. 157th st Olathe, Kansas Supercenter
