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

    Pros

    Great work environment, amazing coworkers, and good benefits. Has decent health benefits and a good 401k.
    Able to have employee stock. Easy to stand out compared to other areas. Easiest fresh area there is however easily the most rewarding.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times however it can be very rewarding. One of the most seen places in store. Easy to stand out.

    Good hours, great workers, not too hard of work by any means!

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

    Pros

    A job when I needed it

    Cons

    not enough communication between management and its workers. Pay is peanuts.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your workers more when its time to hire within. Hire cart pushes, so dept. Associates aren't pulled every hour per shift

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

    Pros

    Not a horrible business , just not very considerate or strechable to some people's lives.

    Cons

    They terminated my employment status due to being late on the city bus to many time. It's my only way of transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Please work with me on my timing. I do not have a car or a stable enough job to leas a car. I take the city bus and will arrive 20 minutes after every hour. Saturdays the bus runs every two hours and they do not run Sundays.

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

    Pros

    The people that I worked with were truly the only reason I came to work.

    Cons

    The managers really do not care about their employees, there was this constant environment of one manager said this another said that attitude and nobody wanted to take the blame.

    Advice to Management

    Read the cons of working here! All in all learn how to actually be leaders.

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

    Pros

    Good starting pay for what your asked to do/one of the easier jobs in the store. I had a particularly good department manager.

    Cons

    You may be asked by upper level management to help put in other fresh areas. This was never specified and although not unexpected, you may be tossed into an area like deli with little or no training if the need arises.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates and utilize their capabilities effectively, be realistic about the amount of work that can be expected.

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

    Pros

    I work at Walmart and the only pro is it is a job

    Cons

    No one knows how to help at this one I am at. Feels like middle school because get called into the office for little things co worker don't like. Do truck and lift pallets by self. Open departments never been in before with no help. Have no help filling floor and have overtime taken back because Walmart does not do overtime. This Walmart also discriminates against age and disabilities. If you are not a manager your family better not apply because they will not get in.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that wants to work and help without complaining about the littlest things.

    Pros

    Working in the fresh area, you are constantly on the move. I can't be bored.

    Cons

    Scheduling can be challenging. You are at the mercy of your assistant manager. Make sure you keep a good rapport.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of your day to day tone. Remember, people are dealing with things you may know nothing about. Always be kind.

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

    Pros

    Good management and environment they attempt to help you out when you need more training or it's busy

    Cons

    Changing schedules, as a company they do not make managers create schedules but have a program that does it for them
