    I worked at Walmart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Its a job that does give hours and you can move up into different positions and departments.

    Cons

    They dont follow your availability, most management wont help you or they are not understanding. They dont accept doctor notes so if you or your child is really ill they will point you for everyday you need off to get better or care for your child.

    Advice to Management

    Management should follow and respect the employees availability. They shouldn't agree then go against it after hiring employee.

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You know what you're getting yourself into.

    Cons

    Biweekly pay, stingy corporation, Wal-Mart likes to advertise itself as a company that promotes from within but the location that I dealt with didn't want to bother cross training me so I could move forward.

    Advice to Management

    The turnover rate will decrease if you raise the pay or at least pay weekly. All employees handle BS that nobody wants to deal with for minimum wage.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    The company is rife with opportunities for advancement leaving plenty of room to grow and develop your skill set, whether in a store or logistics/development.

    Cons

    The company seems to be painting with a broad brush in terms of direction. With the advent of one best way, the innovation and mantra to listen to your associates ideals seems to be falling away.

    Pros

    Bonuses, rare occasion of a cool boss.

    Cons

    Everything, the pay, the way you're treated, you got to see something happen to believe it, never can work fast enough, management is never happy with the work you've done, never get a thank you.. you did a good job. Severely understaffed, have to make up the work of the other employees that should of been hired.

    Advice to Management

    Understand we're only human.
