    Pros

    Good medical benefits, quarterly bonus if the store meets guidelines. Advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Some upper management can be hard to work with. Sometimes expecting more than what is possible.

    Advice to Management

    Consider different roles in certain areas of the store supervisor roles in asset protection outside of APM Different roles in the backroom. And remember when staffing stores you need a complete workforce when the standards are set very high on amount of work needing to be done.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family environment. Fun people to work with. Same schedule every week. Good benefits. Good Friends made from working same schedule. Plenty of overtime available during holiday season.

    Cons

    Schedules now being given out by home office, day off preferences and hours each employee available to work, no longer apply.

    Advice to Management

    Not play favorites. Mistakes that are made by an employee, should be fixed by the same employee, as a learning opportunity.

    Pros

    Enjoy working at Walmart, little bit of hard work there but having fun with co-workers lot of opportunities to growth. Different of culture diversities. Recommend everybody should be working at Walmart at least once in the life time either part time or full time . Can't buy everything for less without knowing why

    Cons

    Working more for less, policies mean nothing here. Making a mistake got slap on the wrist then back to work

    Advice to Management

    Please enforce all the policies and don't let the bad guy get away with murder(s)
