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

    Pros

    Pay is GREAT. They treat you like a friend. Very understanding about your situation as well. This will be my first job and it’s probably the best decision I could have made.

    Cons

    Attendance is huge to them. If you do mess up your chance with Walmart you will be asked why u quit or got fired from the number one retail store and that looks bad on you.

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

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, great at developing skills, great place to learn a skill and grow your resume, or grow with the company.

    Cons

    Understaffing issues negatively affects all parts of their business. However, Walmart has increased their minimum hourly rate with hopes to attract more committed employees, and retain better employees.

    Advice to Management

    At the store level, any time you are called in to over ride an associate following company policy, make sure that you first make it clear to the associate and customer that they were doing their job and that you are making an exception.
