    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 worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get to meet a lot of people. Learning about customer service is a big benefit in working here. You will also learn about cash handling and counting back the correct change to your customers.

    Cons

    A lot of standing on your feet. Be prepared with good fitting and comfortable shoes, because as I said there is a lot of standing and not much moving around when you are a cashier.

    Advice to Management

    We all like to be acknowledged once in a while.

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

    Pros

    They offer great benefits, and there is plenty of room to move up. I myself was promoted to entry level management from a cashier within weeks (noteably I have experience).

    Cons

    Associates will drives you crazy. There seems to be this stigma with the Walmart brand that, whether true or not, I feel is undeserving. It's been a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    "High expectations are the key to everything."

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

    Pros

    The work schedule was very flexible. They worked around my college classes. I could work for four hours in the middle of the day if I could schedule a long break between classes. My coworkers were mostly college students like me. I looked forward to working with them each day.

    Cons

    The pay was not much more than the federal minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Be wary of bobcats, and watch out for mountain lions.
