    I worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not very complicated work,

    Cons

    Managers refuse to communicate effectively with their employees, and there is no effective way for employees to reach management. Any request you have in regards to schedules or suggestions go through three or four different people until they end up with the wrong manager. In addition, if you have a question, hunting down a supervisor is grueling. They tell you that you have to get more work done than you have, yet they make you hunt them down for fifteen minutes before you find them. When you express your concerns or questions, they usually don't know what to do.

    Advice to Management

    Create an effective communication tree that makes sure EVERYBODY knows exactly what is required and expected. Also needs to have an effective way for employees to communicate with their supervisors.

    Pros

    Easy Job to get, Decent about hours and a good starting point for experience in customer service

    Cons

    Management seems to be overworked and don't seem super qualified to be in their positions at times. Shifts are almost never regular and you will sometimes work vastly different shift times on a day to day basis. Also no guaranteed hours even if you are a full time employee, often you will get scheduled by the automatic scheduling system for less than 35 hours and have to chase a manager down to correct it if they can.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the store you get quarterly bonuses based on sales of the store, my most recent bonus was $550. I am not going to lie, its fun, my coworkers are awesome and i have an extremely easy job.

    Cons

    No room for people who aren't corporate drones to get any sort of advancement, favoritism, bias, miscommunication between managers resulting in confusing and differing answers depending on the day, infighting.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your loyal employees better, the ones that have been there longest should be able to promote!

    I worked at Walmart (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly work team and clean store. Relaxed amongst the employees.

    Cons

    Overworked and underappreciated staff. They didn't seem to care if you were a few minutes late because of an emergency, they'd still yell at you as if you never showed up.

    Advice to Management

    Praise you hard workers more. I little acknowledgment for a team staying behind a little later and going a bit further never hurts.
