    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Walmart part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Gain customer service experience You can have a life outside of work 10% discount

    Cons

    Lack of recognition for your efforts when you go above and beyond the average You cannot afford a life outside of work

    Advice to Management

    The culture you have created due to lack of recognition via verbal affirmation for efforts above and beyond the norm makes customer gratitude virtually worthless. Periodic verbal praises and thank you(s) would go a long way to boost productivity and make this job worth it.

    Pros

    No Pros at all from walmart.

    Cons

    Management, forced to work either 4 am to 1 PM or 1 PM to 10 PM if you work in the fresh areas, not paid enough for work expected from you, management doesn't care about their employees, management promising something and never doing it, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees fairly, dont have them cut hours worked so you get hire bonuses, stop being selfish, dont treat your employees like slaves, treat others how you want to be treated.

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Always plenty of work to keep you busy. You can learn other departments if you ask them to teach you when they are short handed.

    Cons

    They do not seem to promote with in their own departments . They do not automatically cross train you in various departments.

    Advice to Management

    Cross training your employees would not only assist when you are short handed but in overall daily functions. Then you would always have coverage.
