    Pros

    Not many pros to be had.

    Cons

    Understaffing means that you are doing a job of a minimum wage worker 90% of the time instead of coaching, training, and developing people. It's a very poor culture within stores and I'm in a high performing store.

    Advice to Management

    Staffing needs to be increased to a level where stores can be maintained. Until then, you will continue to run ridiculous turnover.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast environment never bored, decent benefits employee discounts.

    Cons

    Shady management, they will tell you one thing and another manager will tell you something different. Some of the rudest customers in America shop here.

    Advice to Management

    Changing policies constantly will not help your stores in the long run. And remember you're number one rule to treat individuals with respect and not play favorites.

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

    Pros

    Dental and Vision insurances are very good, and associate discounts are good, even at the hair salon, Pharmacy, and Vision Center (20% off those, versus regular 10% off in store). I know of several locations' in house food chain (the Subway, McDonalds, etc) will also give discounts or coupons for their food as well. Several stores as well will give bonuses, and a meal or cake of some matter each quarter, plus some do cakes for "birthdays" that month, or a cookout.

    Cons

    Health insurance isn't the best, at least here in SW PA, where I'm at; it may be different in other areas, and what you want/how often you need health insurance. The associate discount is not the greatest, but helpful (always price match and use savings catcher, to get the most out of your shopping experience there). I know of stores like mine, where the management team is rarely on the sales floor during the day, and pull you every which way, with little to no regard to what you may be doing, or have to do. It's usually not the customer, it's the management team. You get overloaded on work tasks, and it's all about their "More! Faster!" mentality, as we on night shift half joke about. Nothing is ever good enough for them, for most associates. Raises are now a standard 2%, and we are now on the PTO (Paid time off) program, for vacation time, or to use in compensation for a call-off/call in. It was better when I got hired 3 years ago. The better you are as an employee, the worse you're treated in a way, and the rate at which you receive tasks, and are expected to complete them get out of hand, to what the tasks may entail.

    Advice to Management

    Get off our backs (night shift). We're not always at fault, and we do the best we can most nights. The reason why we've slowed down, is because if you can't appreciate us at our fullest, and let us have some slack on easy nights, then why should we be working so hard? The lot of us get that daylight has the lot of customers, but if you want to get full swing of 2nd shift to be doing most of the work, actually make them do it, and do it right....even 1st shift sees the difference in what was my "home" area, let alone in other consumables, and how they're processing the freight, and it's not good. Our bonuses are down, our "sales" are down (because of the price increases...no one wants to talk about that), and our morale is down. Appreciate us, and keep in mind: how you say things, how you act is worth more than just what words comes out of your mouth.

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

    Pros

    Having a negative or positive work experience will really depend on your manager or leader. There will be a big variation in associate experience because it is such a large company. I am fortunate to have a flexible and progressive management team. If you do your job, partner/collaborate well with others, and adapt to change, you will do well.

    Cons

    Change is necessary for business survival, but if change is not properly communicated and executed, it leaves associates disgruntled and feeling like a number.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent. Reward associates on merit.

    You start off as a PART TIME employee and work FULL TIME employee hours (as OVERNIGHT STOCKER)
