    To much Favoritism
    Management treat employees horribly
    Don't promote those who are qualified but hold them back
    Don't accept doctors notes for illnesses
    They eliminated Paid vacations,Paid holidays+sick time
    Last year they raised people to $11/he including long time employees making long time employees making the same.pay as new hires
    Cut annual pay raises from 40 cents to 2% of what you make .
    Overwork employees so they don't have to hire more People
    Don't appreciate people
    They don't care about family
    They treat the hard workers horribly and praise those that do a lot less.
    A lot of changes to policy which Wal-Mart claims the employees asked for but they didn't talk to no one

    Pros

    Great pay, good benefits. They work you to death, but you gain a lot of knowledge to take elsewhere

    Cons

    Get to know your people! It’s always the good people that get the short end of the stick. The open door policy is a joke. It’s already premeditated what they will do to you. When you try to climb the corporate ladder you only can go so far.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your people. Don’t announce visits just pop up, so you can see what the associates actually really go through. It’s like the saying, putting lipstick on a pig. It’s true. Also if you are in upper management, store Managers market managers, don’t forget to speak to and acknowledge your people! It goes a long way! The moment you forget who helps put food on your family’s table, that’s when you lost! It might not be this second but eventually you will lose the battle.

    Advice to Management

    Walmart needs an accounting teams to do an investment program for retirement
    workers. Workers of 10 or more years
    even to 65 to 70 years of age. Saying 65
    to 70 year worked ten or more years
    deserve a retirement fund.
