    Pros

    You learn a lot in a small amount of time and there were endless opportunities to do a different job every 18 months and also get a promotion with it. At the roots, company leadership is very passionate.

    Cons

    Work load was extremely heavy. Most positions do the job of two people. Sr management is not engaged and hums along with the status quo. They are extremely adverse to risk and never look more than two years into the future. Spent a lot of time putting out fake fires for Sr. leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Need to lose more levels of management. Remove risk aversion by accepting failure when trying something new. Remove bad managers that year over year have bad associate assessment scores. You need more ideas and their not coming from 25 year career managers.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits including PTO above average for area. The actual physical working environment was always safe and followed all compliance rules. Management offered fun activities and kept break rooms lively and comfortable. Had flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Salaried management was often seen working excessive hours, over 65 a week on a consistent basis. Hourly workers would be written up for getting overtime. There were some store managers that would yell and degrade and embarrass the workers right on the sales floor if the task was not complete or a mistake was made.

    Advice to Management

    Customers hear everything said on sales floor. It does not matter how shiny your floors are or how cheap the milk is, if you disrespect your associates, the stores attitude is tarnished and productivity bottoms out and turnover blows up.

    Pros

    company has good benefits promotes people quickly

    Cons

    Management terrible not trained not knowledgeable. the people being promoted to assistant managers don't have enough years of company experience to do the job. terrible turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Stop building so many stores and less is better. focus on having well run stores with good managers and good people like it used to be. Focus more on hardlines where the profit margin is higher. payroll is more focused at grocery where profit is lower. hardlines departments don't get enough attention.
