    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 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers; vast majority of management are fair. They are more prone to work with you if they see you have integrity, honesty, and mean well. In my experience, I've been promoted to department manager based off the suggestion of an assistant and was asked a few times whether I wanted to be ZMS without actually seeking out either position.

    As typical with retail, the job provides some backbone to a resume - particularly if you can gain managerial skills, people skills, and solid references.

    Cons

    Typically called up to cashier multiple times a week. Business need aside, it can get annoying if you have multiple tasks to complete within your own department.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat your employers well - they also wear a lot of hats in too short of time frame.
