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

    Pros

    The fellow Walmart associates are quite friendly and Walmart attempts to provide associates with a friendly workspace and numerous benefits.

    Cons

    Often understaffed and still expect associates to be on top of everything even during the rushes and while it is nice to promote management from the inside, this sometimes results in unqualified managers

    Advice to Management

    Allocate more hours to avoid being understaffed.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many different career opportunities within one company. Don't have to leave the company to change industries. Lots of benefits and company continues to grow.

    Cons

    Hard work and long hours are the norm. Although there are a lot of different areas to work, right-sizing has become more frequent than ever in the past. Maybe there is a good reason. Hard work doesn't necessarily translate to job security.

    Advice to Management

    Place a high value on the generalist again. Seek out different ways of thinking and different experience when assembling teams.

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

    Pros

    401K, Profit Sharing, People from all walks of life, Benefits, Opportunity to Advance Within the Company

    Cons

    There are employees who don't pull their own weight, making the employees who do work have to work harder.

    Advice to Management

    Although there's an open door policy it would be better if there were more meetings within the individual departments so that everyone will be on the same page and also boost morale. Employees should be reprimanded individually instead of as a whole.

    Pros

    You can move up in many different departments!

    Cons

    During holiday season it's really crowed & hectic days. The hours are flexible but even if you are part time you are gonna have to deal with customers during a Black Friday. #Beware

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do a great job!
