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

    Pros

    The number one pro is that you pretty much can get hired if you don't have a gnarly criminal history and aren't a complete degenerate. That is no little thing. A place where you can probably get a job if you are just not too lazy to apply is a very American concept. You can rebuild or start out at this company. It wasn't boring work. Never a lack of stuff to do. It was indoors for the most part. You can move up pretty easily. It's a great place to learn retail. If you can handle Wal-Mart other retail will be pretty easy for ya from a work load stand point. They offered overtime sometimes.

    Cons

    I guess the downside of being able to pretty much get hired if you have a pulse is that you really do run into some pretty marginal people at this job. It's definitely an anti-thinking environment. It might be too easy to move up because they have a lot of managers who have zero business managing anything period let alone a high volume business. It's really hard to get time off. It's hard work for little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly for as much crap as people talk about Wal-Mart I think their management (higher ups) are pretty dang brilliant. Not middle management. But higher up people. The reason I say that is because obviously the business is huge and everywhere. Something is being done right. Also, I think their status as being a place where pretty much anybody who wants to work can have a job is a very important role to play in the world. You can get hired there and the place isn't shutting down any time soon. I know that quantity over quality isn't an ideal way to do business but, it is a way that works. It does work.

    Pros

    Multi unit experience, most store level managers want to do the right thing. Each market is managed differently, expectations and experience will be different depending on what area of the county you are in.

    Cons

    Organization is top heavy. Micro managed, terminate large numbers of people with little to no warning. Excessive number of people trying to give direction, often conflicting messages to the field. Exception and tour based corrections and evaluations.
