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

    Pros

    Company promotes from within and has many jobs opportunities to offer

    Cons

    Often there is a need for more associates. People tend to call off causing a shortage of employees leaving the ones who are there to carry out more duties.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes there isn't enough hardware to ensure the job can be completed in the time frame given

    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.

    Pros

    The pay is really nice, the people you work with are amazing it’s like a second family

    Cons

    For your first 6 months you can’t get more then 4 points meaning being late or calling off

    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".
