    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.

    Pros

    A lot of nice people working around you. Really care about giving you the breaks you need and an hour lunch is nice too.

    Cons

    Management can be hard to work with sometimes. Would enjoy better organization in the back. Also update online catalog to mirror what the store has in stock.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pass one associates call for help to another manager and make that associate wait for ever for some help.

    You get the opportunity to learn the whole store. You don't have to stay in one part of the store you can learn and transfer positions.

    Some of The Managers that work there aren't as professional as a employee would hope.

    The only advice I would have is hopefully to learn to be more professional to your employees

    Pros

    It's a good place to meet people and experience different kinds of personalities that you don't usually have the pleasure of experiencing.

    Cons

    The CSM's were very inconsiderate and didn't really help me when I needed it. They all kind of just stood around and chatted about their personal lives and really didn't help unless the managers came around.
