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

    Pros

    Good rate of pay / Get a degree for only $30/mo.

    Cons

    Management is not always the nicest and if you're not part of "the click", advancement opportunities are non-existent. Hours are not consistent and they're always cutting back hours in the winter time and slow times.

    Advice to Management

    We are under a lot of stress with the cutback in hours all of the time & we never have enough associates on the floor to help customers, so a little more patience and Respect for the Associate is needed.
