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

    Pros

    Pay was great in the electronics department Even though I was hired part-time, hours were plentiful. I had approved overtime very often. Very lenient attendance policy

    Cons

    You run out of things to do very fast and end up zoning/facing for half of your shift Management will constantly pull you out of your department to do other, lazier people's jobs After being told for months that I was next in line for a promotion to department manager, they gave an open position to someone who knew absolutely nothing about their department (and this happened a total of three times before I left) Upper management is very disorganized, prone to mistakes that seriously effected the work of lower employees

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to fire someone after they quit, then lie about who fired me and when. Thanks for six months of unemployment benefits. Promote people who deserve it, stop hiring people who have no idea what they're doing.

    Pros

    Great benefits for the industry! Management work with you well if your a good worker. Pay is ok. At least the benefits are best in the industry.

    Cons

    Culture is ever changing. This is something to get used to. Just like other employers the social realm guides the culture more then the company does.

    Advice to Management

    It is Best to sharpen soft skills continually because the company has a lot of diversity.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's plenty of room for advancement, and if you're hired in as full time, you will receive every hour of your 40 hours a week

    Cons

    The only reason there is plenty of room for advancement is because it's incredibly difficult to keep the positions filled due to lack of staffing, lack of efficient workers, and lack of proper training in any position across the board. You are "asked" to stay over to complete others work, and then "asked" to either come in late, or leave early, or take a longer lunch so that you don't accumulate any over time (despite the fact that you should in fact be paid for said work). You will either work yourself to death covering for all of the work that others haven't or can't do, or you'll be one of the lucky few who can mosey around the store not actively being productive in the least, and never get talked to since there's hard workers to pick up your slack. 3rd shift stockers should easily make $15 an hour, and yet most aren't even willing enough to put up with the job long enough to make $11 an hour. The only reason I've given this job 2 stars and not negative 72 is because if you are willing and able to work yourself straight into the ground and put up with the incredible lack of effort on everyone's part, including management, then you yourself will eventually be able to leap into a management position, be poorly trained, and continue the cycle of putting in the absolute minimum effort to maintain your job whole the store falls apart and you make close to $20 an hour to walk around and point.

    I know this all sounds like the words of a very disgruntled Walmart employee, but while it is, I'm also one of the few who cares about their job. I've been offered multiple opportunities for advancement in my time at Walmart, and I've turned them all down. Only recently have I considered moving up, and that was only because I am good at what I do, and I feel like I could maybe make a small change in the way management sees themselves if I applied myself as hard then as I do now. But even that's a long shot. Costco, here I come.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so lazy and self entitled. We all know you're management, but get on the floor and work a bit.

    Pros

    They will hire you if you have a pulse.

    Cons

    You are lied to, receive no benefits, and the pay is low.....Always!

    Advice to Management

    Treat the people who stock the shelves better. While they may not be directly contributing to sales in your minds, people will go elsewhere if they can't find the products they are looking for.
