    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company will promote and train from within if the associate shows they have good work ethic- you can't teach a good work ethic

    Cons

    They layoff every year-it's not fun being worried about your job every January

    Advice to Management

    Do the layoffs once and do them right so we don't have to do this again.

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

    Pros

    The Walmart Discount card is the only thing I can think of

    Cons

    - The leadership team SVPs, VPs, etc. don't give 2 hoots for your career. They'll use you and once you're work is done - Show you the door!
    - People who are 'yes' men are the ones who you can see as Senior Directors, Directors and so on.. Oh boy, this is extremely visible. Looks like leadership like to hear what they want to hear and not the truth.
    - Millennial bullying: You're bullied because you're a millennial. I've even had a senior director tell me (I'm a millennial) that he doesn't hire millennials. No credential check, nothing. What can I do if I was born in that bucket, it's discriminatory.
    - Too many people who are directors, senior directors who have low intellect - This is the fun and ironic part - Too often, you'll end up reporting to people who aren't the brightest and you'll learn the art of politics

    Advice to Management

    - Please evaluate your leaders, identify psychopaths and let them go.
    - Show that you value millennials.

    Pros

    Great place to learn, biggest company out there.
    Good work/ life balance
    Great people to work with
    NWA is a great area

    Cons

    Dying culture. Never ending lay offs and chaos are the new norm. Everyone lives in fear, company expects you to leave after 2 or 3 years

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to BS your employees. Show them some true respect and lead by example. People don’t buy empty pep talks anymore.

    Something you can believe in - Save people money so they can live better. The experience is great and it is a great place to start a career.

    While there is talk about associates being the most important corporate asset, long term associates are just cast aside as the company pivots strategies

    Advice to Management
