    Pros

    If you stay with the company you make friends with the people around you. There is the high turnover aspect but there's also the life long employees. Those are the ones that make it worthwhile. If you want to have career with this company prepare to be transferred to a different store. In store promotions do occur but sometimes opportunities don't arise as soon as you'd like and a transfer is the only option. Stay positive and make friends. It's a pretty fun place.

    Cons

    Politics! It's everywhere. If someone in a hugger position doesn't like you they can make life difficult for you. At least that's what I've heard. Other than that retail is pretty easy. Many tasks with impossible deadlines. Usually management lets stuff roll down hill. If they get chewed out by their manager then they pass it on. Good managers don't do that. A few at this location don't and a few do. It's a mixed bag.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the negative stuff roll down hill. Be kind and say positive things to encourage. Don't put us down. Negativity is contagious but so is positivity.

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

    Pros

    The pay is good, good benefits, training is easy, and you have a flexible schedule, you get to know some of your regulars.

    Cons

    If you get hurt on the job they will still make you work, the managers treat you like a slave, and you get some pretty crazy customers sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    My store was pretty bad. The managers stole and cussed out customers. Most of the employees were talking on their phones while on the clock. The employees took 45 minutes long breaks.

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

    Pros

    employee discount but it only works sometimes

    Cons

    horrible management
    unfair work place
    low hrs.
    get coached for going to the restroom
    you dont get trained ...you do that yourself...and if someone is nice enough to train you larn as much as you can
    basically if you are not related to anyone in management you might as well be prepared to find a new job else where
