    Pros

    Job isn't too hard, once everyone is on the same page and on routine . The pay isn't too bad for the work done. Most people complain about working at Walmart, But the job is what you make it. If you want to make it a career, there are plenty of opportunities. You just need to put in the effort.

    Cons

    At certain stores managment treats you like you're not important. Some employees don't even try and make everyone else pick up the slack. Lack of training. Lack of effort in some members of management.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to train all employees right, so the job can be done correctly and efficiently so the company can make more profit. Treat your employees right and you'll get more work out of everyone.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Day off for Christmas.
    PTO Hours will be given instead of Holiday Pay.

    Cons

    To receive the PTO Hours given for Christmas Day...You have to make a request, by filling out PTO request form..Then those hours will be added to your paycheck.
    The week of Christmas, and a few weeks after Christmas, just about everyone's hours will be reduced.

    Advice to Management

    Reducing hours to associates, is dissapointing, sad , and financially frustrating. Stores need to be fully staffed to meet customers demands.
