    Pros

    The best reasons to work their is because I get to see some of the most amazing smiles on my customers face when I see them.

    Some of the downsides is when they get upset or angry because we don't have their product in stock.

    My advice to management is that I love to work and I never give it and I love to strive for the better and make everyone happy.

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

    Pros

    Much higher starting pay rates. A lot of advancement opportunities. A decent benefits package.

    Cons

    Have to work a lot of the holidays. Always have to end a meeting with the Walmart cheer.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked with a lot of talented managers, but some still need to work on their communication. Stop making us do the cheer, no one likes it and it doesn't boost the morale.

    Pros

    Benefits, Leave of Absence, "Open Door" Policy & Flexibility in hours and transferring of stores

    Cons

    Favoritism is very popular- use it to your advantage to succeed. However, a store's personality is usually justified by the attitudes and work ethic of the Assistant Managers.

    Advice to Management

    Invest into Assistant Manager roles, they get burnt out too often. Thus, placing stress and blame on Department Managers and associates

    Working at Wal-mart is like working with family, you cannot get a job just being a cashier for $10.00 an hour and you are inside out of the heat, wind, cold weather, and rain.
