    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    High intellectual engagement because there is so much to do and always operates understaffed. If you like to solve challenges and a highly politicized environment, this company is for you.

    Cons

    With all the shakeups and layoffs from trying to compete with Amazon and other incoming retailers, the leaders in support areas are mostly interested in promoting and hiring those who can help them look good before their bosses. This means hiring based on image, eloquence, etc. instead of proven track record of results and entrepreneurship.

    Advice to Management

    The company is dumping good and hard working contributors and often replacing them for empty suits. Whenever there's a team downsize, the one person standing is the most likeable, not the one who contributed the most to the company. In the long run, this seismic shift in culture will result only in diminished competitiveness.
