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

    Pros

    Wal-Mart is one big family. The employees are really truthful about a certain store. You will not have a problem with the employees at all.

    Cons

    The supervisors doesn't take up for you in the time that need to be. You will work hard, but the pay should increase a little bit more. The supervisors, and manager will talk to you like you are their child. You feel as you are not appreciated although they tell you thank you, but actions are better than words. Dumb people gets the better positions. People with a degree like myself, have a hard time climbing to the top.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people the way they need to be treated. Talk to people that work for you with respect. We are not your slaves, but workers. Without the workers, Wal-Mart will not be anything.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're social you have the opportunity to make a lot of friends? People temd to bond over their hatred for Walmart.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care. They constantly make you feel like you're replaceable and don't matter. They tell what you're doing wrong but don't help you improve. Moving from part-time to full-time is nearly impossible because they don't want to give you benefits. They pay slightly above minimum wage but it's not worth all of the BS.

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

    Pros

    Rigid bureaucratic structure (for those that prefer that sort of thing)
    No surprises-jobs and tasks were pretty straightforward

    Cons

    Rigid bureaucratic structure
    For the most part undervalues their employees
    Constant insincerity from corporate office/management (personally had a good relationship with store management by I could see it being otherwise at different locations)
    Solely driven by the bottom line

    Advice to Management

    No advice for store management, but in brief for the corporate office:
    Three things
    1) There are more important things in this world than money
    2) Actions are worth a thousand words (All the kind words and charity work means nothing if it's wholly insincere/self-serving. Try doing something that benefits mankind without repetitively patting yourself on the back.)
    3) Do something about your repetitive radio program (Seriously, that stuff kills me.)

    Pros

    Pay is ok if you fight for it when offered

    Cons

    You will work 50-60 hours per week and up to 6-14 days straight without a day off. Very cut throat. Taking care of your employees is discouraged. This is why the turn over rate is high. Unattainable goals are set everyday which allows Managers to write coachings to fire people.

    Advice to Management

    Stop overworking your employees. You will continue to loose the good ones.

    Pros

    The job isn't very difficult if you're nice

    Cons

    Managers will make you do non-electronics tasks all day
    You will be asked to learn the roles of 5 or so departments and cover them
    You will put up 2 - 4 hours of freight ( merchandise ) every day.
    You will be expected to climb past all of the truck freight that blocks your TVs late evenings to reach a TV a customer asked for while shopping at 11PM
    You will have many 'clopening' closing and then opening schedules

    Advice to Management

    Respect break and lunch periods of the associates.
