    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.

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

    Pros

    I love working in a retail setting and my coworkers are the most enjoyable part of my job. Locations everywhere.

    Cons

    Wages are extremely low, other places seem to pay more than Walmart does. Management does not listen to complaints, it's not hard to see why there is so much turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and help make our lives better. We talk about being the largest employer but our employees don't seem to be treated like part of a "big family".

    I have been working at Walmart part-time

    Pros

    They will hire anyone...wait...maybe that's not a pro....

    Cons

    Despite reassurances from management, you really are just a number to them...just one tiny piece in a million piece jigsaw puzzle...though they claim you are more...proof is in the pudding....

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to offer an open door policy, and listen to and respect each employee then you should do it....but it's all just a joke to you...

    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.
