    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company promotes from within and has many jobs opportunities to offer

    Cons

    Often there is a need for more associates. People tend to call off causing a shortage of employees leaving the ones who are there to carry out more duties.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes there isn't enough hardware to ensure the job can be completed in the time frame given

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

    Pros

    Lunches are crazy long, an eight hour shift having an hour long lunch and two 15 minute breaks is amazing and I admit I was spoiled

    Not too difficult

    Cons

    Hours aren't consistent and dealing with people not scheduled to assist the department can be a pain.

    Doing the team lift by yourself

    Safety hazard grabbing shelving from the back room using a ladder and your will to live another day sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    With poor management, the store can really suffer when it shouldn't. Before I left I had an ASM who did such a poor job during our remodeling that it was delayed because of poor communication between him, other managers and the supplies we needed that it was delayed and was a huge pain to employees and customers. I've seen Walmart run smoothly and it definitely can under the right guys.

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

    Pros

    It's a job. That's pretty much it.

    Cons

    You are informed your pay will be 10hr but when you are hired, you are then told your pay is $9hr until you are at the company for 6 months. Walmart is all about if you fit in with "Management". If you don't treat them like royalty, or call them out on questionable practices, your schedule will change when you are not aware, and or your hrs will be cut to nothing until you quit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring managers, promoting people based on how much they kiss up to you, or if they "friend" you on facebook.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    lots of hours and starting wage is higher then most starting level jobs. Has options for different skills to learn and areas of the store to work in.

    Cons

    Depending on where you work in the store the labor is quite intensive. The turnover rate is quite high so you will likely wind up understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Work on maintaining a working system for both the claims and cap system because they often times going down. being more personal with your employees will make them feel like they're part of something as opposed to feeling like just another worker. maybe make a harder effort to find employees to fill the busy days. offering people who work hard a raise will likely make them work harder for another raise or make others take note and work harder for a raise. And just generally keep the employees in mind because we don't feel quite that important.
