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

    Pros

    For part-time work, there is some flexibility in determining your own schedule if done with ample notice.

    For a 9-hour workday, you are given 1 hour for lunch and two 15-minute breaks.

    Cons

    Mandatory training period upon starting does not cover the specifics of your role - it is very generalized about working in a retail environment.

    In addition to the standard training videos/computer courses, introduce training protocols for specific roles within the store.
