    Pros

    Walmart is a big company, therefore, I receive all the benefits I could want including vision, medical and dental insurance.

    Cons

    Does not pay enough to keep techs inside the company as a career.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should hire more technicians to have more on standby when people call off.
    Certified Technicians should also be paid more in order to keep people at a living wage.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Walmart has stood beside me during some of the toughest moments of my life. There have been several times where I should have been terminated due to personal issues that I had going on that required me to miss significant periods of work, but management stayed right beside me and fought to help me keep my job. The benefits for a full time associate are not that bad either. I especially like how fast the PTO time builds up when you are a full time associate. I also am taking advantage of the new college benefits Walmart just rolled out for all part and full time associates. I have worked for the company for almost 4 years and my experience for the most part has been a pleasant one overall.

    Cons

    Every store is different and each has its own issues I am sure. When I worked in a smaller store format I felt like favoritism was rampant among the salaried management team in terms of promotions. They always knew who they were going to promote before they even opened the positions.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to have a good feel of running both the business aspect of Walmart and the people aspect of Walmart. Without its associates Walmart would not be where it is today. As our name badges say, "Our people make the difference." They do. Management should treat them like they make a difference.
