    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fairly steady, will work with you on hours, decent pay rate for the area.

    Cons

    They've started cutting hours, limiting help, while also increasing workload. Might just be a fluctuation but fits with trend toward pharmacy being more clinical. Limited upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to be expecting more and more extra jobs from your employees, make sure we still have the hours for the help we need to accommodate the new workload.
