    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.

    Pros

    The customers and the associates makes it a fun place to work!

    Cons

    Some of the cons is hours, certain departments have limited hours to give. Not cashier's or the cap teams.

    Advice to Management

    I've have seen people move up to management!

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Can apply for 401k, Walmart stock and my share profits which are paid out quarterly. Flexible hours and fair management.

    Cons

    I guess the biggest con would be the hours that were cut. Most people want and need 40 hours but we hardly ever got that. Usually 32 to 36.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to acknowledge good,faithful workers. At least tell them they are doing a good job when applicable and tell them thank you.

    Pros

    The environment is like a family, fun, and friendly! They do care about their employees if you find a manager who doesn't and is rude, you can always go above their head continuously to get help all the way up the ladder!

    Cons

    Long hours, and rather rude customers. They can tear you down in a second if you let them get to you. The best way to avoid this is smile and get management!

    Advice to Management

    Be nice, say please and thank you, and your employees will respect you, and work more efficiently.
