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

    Pros

    The company believe in training and building up their employees. They want to see you succeed as an employee and will invest their time and money to train you properly with pay. Great work environment. Lots of entry level and professional job opportunities. Many opportunities to grow within the company. Great Management team.

    Cons

    Not that many cons. Great work place but salary managers have to work long hours a day but don't get paid for overtime work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    I have immediately changed my outlooks, the fact me or newly hired associates can elect to take tax deferred paychecks at 100% non taxed, for one 401k at 50%, and 50% Direct WM Stock Purchase plan, pay option w/15%, means only that I will remain a Part time employee long term on the weekends. It is amazing to think my Full time income will pay for my lifestyles, but my Part Time income will substantially benefit my retirement savings from this day forward 100%.

    Cons

    none yet to complain, but others might

    I worked at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good pay, good benefits, fun work environment

    Cons

    The company has really limited what you are able to do to prevent theft. In the beginning, we were able to make stops, get license plates, go into the parking lot, etc. Towards the end, we weren't even allowed past the sidewalk and making stops was basically impossible. You had to start being paranoid that if you made one small error in following the protocol you would lose your job.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on your Asset Protection Associates and let them do their job!! I understand there has to be certain protocol in place to guard against lawsuits and protect employees, but at a point it becomes really disheartening to try and do your job.
