    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some good employees. 10 Percent Discount

    Cons

    No chance for advancement unless you kiss managers butt. The Raise starting pay to $11 hour. you make under 11 you raised to $11 making you the same rate as a new hire no matter how long you are. You make over #11 you get no raise at all. They also changed full time from 36-40 hrs to 32 hrs without notice. No discount on Food. Bad Sick time policy

    Advice to Management

    Treat Employees betterand fairly

    Pros

    Free food on holidays. 15 minute breaks every two hours (sometimes). Pays alright.

    Cons

    Long hours or no hours. Lots of standing, bending, lifting. Management not really concerned for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to our complaints. Give raises so we can drive to do better. Give us a steady schedule.

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

    Pros

    Quarterly Bonuses, Decent pay, No fear of the building closing

    Cons

    Management most of the time has never worked in your position so they will make decisions that make 0 sense. Policy is their God, even if policy is not best for the specific situation

    Advice to Management

    Use a divisional management structure. As an APA in Philadelphia I should not have the same policies as someone in the suburbs. My job was frequently violent and I knew that you (upper management) would fire me on the slightest deviation from your policy even if it meant that I was protecting myself or others.

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

    Pros

    They have benefits and potential to bonus. The other employees who work there become like your second family.

    Cons

    They don't care about you being sick. They make you kill your overtime even if they ask you to stay past your shift. The management team have favorites so it's hard to get promoted without kissing butt and no matter how hard you work or how many hours you put in they are never satisfied with the outcome of your work.

    Advice to Management

    I think that managers should be moved to different stores every 6-12 months to avoid cliques ei g formed. I also think that you guys should stop over using the people that do alot of work and start holding the lazy people accountable for their lack in performance.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like Sam Walton wanted you to treat them. Pay employees what they are worth and the horrible employee turn over rate would improve.

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

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here would be the pay. You start off at $9 an hour for a cashier and more than that everywhere else. Hours aren't a problem at my location. They work you enough that your 2 hours away from being full time minus all the benefits.

    Cons

    The managers all disappear at crucial moments. No one wants to actually work unless they're being called on the overhead speaker. All of the upper managers are in cliques so if your not one of their favorites you get ignored entirely. No sense of urgency and completely unprofessional. I put in my change availability sheet in December and it didn't get changed until last week. I was cheated out of a CSM position because I'm not one of the butt kissers. Everyone gossips like it's high school when work needs to be done. The store is completely understaffed. The people who have the most workers are electronics and clothing. Everyone else is screwed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the favoritism. Give actual hardworking people the promotions they deserve instead of your favorites. Actually take the time to listen and solve your employees complaints because we shouldn't have to call corporate to be heard. THE CUSTOMER IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT ! At least listen to your workers some time. Bad customers exist just like bad workers. Stick up for us some time. Also upgrade the registers please. Customer service line would not be that long if we had good working registers and printers
