    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Walmart is good entry level job for people looking to gain experience or for people who desperately need a job, they will pretty much hire anyone. Have made some good lasting work relationships. Was a decent first job to gain some experience in different areas of the store for future jobs. In those 4 years I went from an Unload-er to an overnight Inventory Associate, then went to overnight Modular Team/Stocking.

    Cons

    I found that some of the management and employees were unprofessional. Management was not always great at setting up their employees for success and would make impossible deadlines for associates. I guess it also depends on the store though. Mine was a mess, we were not a super center but would get just as much freight as one. I have heard good things about some other stores though, so I guess it just depends.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to communicate with each other more proficiently, also take the time to listen to their employees and treat them with more respect for the hard work they do, show them that they matter. Help when needed.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There's plenty to learn, big company, many different areas to work in to garner experience. After some time there you can get health insurance,dental, vision even.

    Cons

    Some of the stores play favorites and if you don't fall under that category for them, it's near impossible to move up, around or to transfer locations. During the off seasons hours are cut down to possibly 8 hours a week, thats for everyone unless you pick up hours doing projects that are quite grueling but feasible.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the company rules that are enforced upon employees, assure assistant managers, co-managers and store managers are not being unethical which happens quite a bit and they get away with it. Promote from within and promote people with the actual experience, knowledge,integrity and patience for the positions they will be taking. Don't overlook the employees that do the job without having to get in good graces, it's a job not a friendship.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck. Can work many different positions.

    Cons

    Where to start? You're overworked and underappreciated. You're always short staffed. People are put in their positions with little to no training.
