    Pros

    Two additional 15-min break times along 1-hour Lunch time.
    If you want to burn your fat, come join in.
    Friendly management even though it varies store to store.

    Cons

    if you show your work efficiency, no doubt, you will get more and more workload than others without extra pay! Also, if there is a call off, you all have to make it up and the management will not pay you the absentee's paycheck even though you made that up!
    You might have back pain or/and knee pain due to heavy weight lifting.

    Advice to Management

    Please have a sufficient number of overnight associates and a fair workload distribution among the overnight stockers, and acknowledge that they put the hardest labor in your store than any other positions, and they deserve to have better pay/hour. Furthermore, please do not spend our MyShare to buy equipment for the store.

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

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement, 401K matching is one of the best in the industry, paid time off program is decent and flexible, annual bonus is really good (for salaried employees), the company culture is fantastic and one of the biggest reasons I've stayed as long as I have, developing associates is a big deal and there are lots of mentoring opportunities

    Cons

    Pretty much everyone does the work of at least two people because they try to stay within a budget which means teams fall short of having enough people, recognition or praise doesn't come often unless you consistently go above and beyond your job responsibilities, it's hard to get into a salaried position from hourly

    Pros

    Walmart is a good place to start, and good for retail, being edged out by Costco

    Cons

    Because of the low barrier of entry you'll see aot of turn over from fellow employees

    Advice to Management

    Things vary widely from store to store. Enforcing management get trained to the same standard that corporate wants would make things more straight forward for employees

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    WalMart offers an enormous amount of benefits which they don't advertise (and don't count on HR to tell you about). They are a huge world-wide corporation with relationships with a huge host of vendors. The key to finding out about all these benefits is to take some time and log onto your WalMart One account once you are hired (and it doesn't matter if you are part-time or full-time, permanent, temporary or seasonal). Click through the different tabs to find out about education and training opportunities, legal and financial planning, numerous discounts for goods, services, travel, etc. If you are interested in moving up within your store or the company, simply input your interests and you will be contacted when openings occur. If you want (or need) to relocate, again - simply go into the system and locate a store (or stores) in that area, click on them and that store will contact you once an opening becomes available. Yes, they also offer standards like Health, Dental, Optical and Life Insurance; along with PTO (paid time off) and an Employee Stock Purchase Plan. Oh, and depending on the stores performance, WalMart also pays quarterly bonuses to all qualifying employees. Recommendations: Read my 'Cons' - check out the store as a shopper - talk to the staff and ask them how they like working at their store.

    Cons

    It's retail, so be prepared to work holidays. Further, all stores are not created equal - some perform better than others (impacts your ability to qualify for a quarterly bonus) and some stores are managed better than others (which can either be very frustrating (poor management, poor or bad communication, over-worked individuals) or very exciting (good management, team effort and good communication).

    Advice to Management

    More bulletin boards communicating store goals, achievements and store department focus (or changes) making all shifts aware of what is transpiring within the store (and the role that play in it). A strategically placed bulletin board which diagrams what each shift does (ex. cap team 1 -> cap team 2 -> overnight stocker; who sets new mods & seasonal displays) so the teams are able to understand the impact they have on the following shifts (or how they can help); thus creating more of a team environment/team work.
