    I worked at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Pretty good health benefits if you manage to get a full time position

    Cons

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for those who show work ethic and a desire to move up at store level. A lack of qualified candidates enables new associates to move up the ranks quickly.

    Cons

    More and more is being placed on managers; both hourly and salary. For Salary management there is a lack of consistency. We are told to do one thing and opposite direction is given by Market Manger.

    Advice to Management

    You have forgotten Sam Walton’s vision. Your associates are your greatest assets. Treat them accordingly.
