    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

    15 breaks, an hour lunch, benefits include 10% discount, health insurance, stock options and 401k. Very great benefits for the job.

    The store management is split into sections so it is hard to get to know managers and transferring to different Walmart’s is a strange process

    I worked at Walmart part-time

    Pros

    The pay is good, and they truly want you to show your most potential and to move up in the company. They also offer good benefits to employees.

    Cons

    Insurance rates are fairly high. You will do one thing one day because your boss wants it and the next day you will go and change what you just did because another boss wants something else.

    Advice to Management

    Work more as a team and talk to each other. Communication is KEY.
