    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extra holiday pay, and quarterly bonuses. Holiday discount, and employee discounts everyday. Friendly and helpful coworkers. Annual pay increases. Room to grow in the company. Very easy to transfer stores out of state.

    Cons

    Lack of formal training and work preparedness. Sometimes an unnecessarily fast paced, and high pressure atmosphere. Median pay for a fairly laborious job. Customers are 24 hours and can be a challenge to cope with. Always having to work a Saturday or Sunday. High turnover of low level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep morale up, and production and productivity will follow.

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

    Pros

    If you have a little common sense and a strong back, you can do or be trained to do just about anything outside of the pharmacy

    Cons

    After you've been there a few years, they'll look to replace you with someone cheaper. I was making over $14/hour, made a couple mistakes in the course of a year and got fired. My mistakes didn't cost the company anything, didn't cost the customer anything, didn't benefit me in any way. They were oversights that might go unnoticed half the time. After 60 days, got rehired at $9.50/hr. No consideration to my experience and knowledge. As a new hirer 10 years earlier, my work experience was considerable enough that I started at $9.25/hr.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pretend to foster a family atmosphere when 60 to 80% of the mgmt. team is intent on displaying the awesome power they wield as managers particularly when they flaunt the fact that the petty, inconsequential rules they are enforcing don't apply to them.
