    Pros

    I get to meet many different people whether it is fellow associates, or customers

    Cons

    Some of the customers can be rude, and belittle some of the associates, and we just smile and power through it.

    Advice to Management

    All of the management at our La Vergne store needs to talk more amongst the other managers, to stay updated on everything that is going on daily at the store. Not just the morning meetings, but take the time to walk back and talk with each member of the management team to find out what can be done to make each department run efficiently, and how they can go about to keep communication open between all of the management team with each other.

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

    Pros

    I started working for Walmart when I was 18. I grew up here, and I've learned everything I know about work ethics and being a hard worker. They work well with you if you are a good worker and give opportunity to learn and grow.

    Cons

    i believe Walmart could set up their hours available for scheduling different. It seems we are always short handed because we only have some many hours for the department, when we could use at least one more person.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates when they bring a concern to you. They see more within a department that you might not and may give some good insight on where the problem areas are in the department. Hake everyone feel like they are part of the team.
