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

    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
