    The employees I work with are very nice. My manager goes out of their way to help me and I haven't even worked here 5 months yet.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good management salary, yearly bonus based on sales, profit, customer survey. 4% yearly rrsp. Salary managers start with 3 weeks vacation and get 4 weeks at 5 years. 4 leave health and dental benefit package. Company keeps up with change in the retail market and is not going anywhere. Most associates and managers are easy to work with creating a positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Most weeks have to work more then 45 hours to keep up with demand because you are salary you are not compensated for extra time. 95% of the time more work load then associate in your team to set you up for success. Very thankless job. Company is turning away for Sam Walton's vision for the company every year its less and less about the 3 basic beliefs. Respect for the individual, service to our customers, strive for excellence.

    Advice to Management

    Stay positive, don't lose your integrity, treat associates like humans don't lose that aspect of the company.
