    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.

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

    Pros

    Definitely is a meritocracy, everyone I work with is interested in my development, very willing to help out. If you objectively perform well, you're rewarded. There's lots of places to go in the company for a hard worker. The merch specialist position specifically is a great place to start towards the buyer role.

    Cons

    The job itself is a lot of inputing data into systems, helping the buyers however you can, you might call it "gruntish". I really wish the company would do more for the employees in terms of perks. The cafeteria is expensive and not that good. Not that many complaints though.

    Advice to Management

    I think the vision and strategy for the company is right on, the thing about walmart is it's so huge your experience can vary so much by wherever you are. The management I'm closest to is doing a great job.

    Pros

    Good pay, employers are nice and accompanying to any need ! If you have any disabilities they are amazing at helping

    Cons

    I believe that they should allow employees who use medical marijuana to work there

    Advice to Management

    You should allow medical marijuana patients to work. It is a much better medication than the prescription pills out there that make you dizzy and feel drunk
