    I worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly it was just a job while in college. Nothing that great to discuss. It was a job that gave me enough money to get from point A to point B.

    Cons

    Management was not that great. Not friendly. Standing all day for little pay. Never had a weekend off. Difficult to take a day off.

    Advice to Management

    Be friendly! Appreciate your people!

    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Sam Walton's Core Values. Respected Company.

    Cons

    Make sure you realize if you start as a "temp" that where you pick to work is where you will be stuck. Almost impossible to get out of GBS.

    Advice to Management

    Take note of people's experience and not just "Walmart" experience.

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

    Pros

    The people I work with are great. I have nice hours and like what I do for the most part. I also work at my local store which is great.

    Cons

    Working for a larger company, sometimes you can be overlooked. I believe that they are not always fair in pay and job opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates, never talk down to them. Respect works both ways. Be a team player and work alongside your associates.

    Learn OBW a little more

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

    Pros

    The associates become more like family and most positions work hand in hand. Changing positions and moving up in the company is relatively easy if you are low-drama and do your job.

    Cons

    Clientele are the downfall. There’s a ‘People of Walmart’ page for a reason. Most folks in smaller towns are better behaved than the bigger cities. In regard to the company, they can beat around the bush with positions available and are quick to pick favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees rather than overloading current staff. Give relief/ aid when needed!

    I worked at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    The money is good when you get into management. Working 4 on 4 off is a good plan to make sure you get a couple weekends a month off.

    Cons

    Hours are long, and being on salary, the days are well over 15 hours. They are under staffed and blame management but don't allow the hours to be given out.


  10. "overnight frozen stocker"

    Cons

    Needs to pay more and more full time employees

    Advice to Management

    pay more
