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

    Pros

    -Great coworkers at the 2 stores I've worked at
    -Flexible scheduling
    -Clean

    Cons

    -Some bad managers previously
    -Not enough people working some positions (people have to fill in other positions in store to keep up)
    -Training seems to be more propaganda direction wise rather than teaching more important things besides the companies history.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to workers 1 on 1 to help smooth things out in stores
    Hire more people for every position, there's always a lack of cashiers open for customers

    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.
