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

    Pros

    Jesus, this is difficult. I guess I’ll go with... I’ve met some really good friends there?

    Cons

    Everything else. Overall, management are utterly lacking in integrity, morale is non-existent, staffing is a joke, and job positions are being eliminated left and right. The current store manager is without a doubt the most awful human being I have ever encountered, both in and out of the workplace. Even the rest of the management “team” — who are not exactly models of ethical behavior themselves — agree wholeheartedly with this assessment.

    Pros

    Work around your schedule and uniform is relaxed

    Cons

    The older ladies you work with are crabby most of the time. CSM’s complain about doing their jobs, will hide out in the cash room for an hour but complain if your bathroom break is too long. Front end can’t take their breaks when they want to it’s when the CSM wants you to

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

    Pros

    Diverse People, Job Security, busy atmosphere, community involvement.

    Cons

    To many changes at once, poor HR dept, poor talent pool, disconnected exterior management, poor communication, unreasonable expectations,

    Advice to Management

    Stop implementing multiple changes at once hoping one of them is an improvement. Its hard to tell whats successful if there are 10 new programs being implemented at the same time. Entry level talent needs time to adapt.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and good hours. 15% employee discount. Easy work.

    Cons

    Most of the management or employees with a higher status carried a sour attitude about their job. They were not flexible with the full time employee's schedule. Always wanted to get the job done as quickly as possible, however, not thoroughly and to the best of their ability as there were strict time frames.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect. Do your job, not only efficiently, but to the best of your ability.

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

    Pros

    Team members were always real friendly. Pay wasn't bad. You get a break of some sort every 2 hours whether it's 15 minutes or your hour lunch. So if you are there for a 9 hrs shift you will get 2 15 min breaks and an hour lunch. I don't know of many other part-time companies that do that.

    You also get a 401k and stock options.

    Cons

    Management moves around a lot. In the 10 months I was there I had 4 different front end managers.
    Another con is that it is really hard to get a continuous weekend day off even for religious reasons. You can't always have a whole Sunday off. I know of 1 employee that had Saturday's off but I think she negotiated that up front when hired. So make sure you negotiate your off days up front.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Let cashier's move around a little, like to self checkout or customer service. The more versatile your employee the more likely they are to stay.
