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

    Pros

    Depends on the store, but you can learn a lot if you find the right people. You can have a great team if you are lucky.

    Cons

    There is never enough staff. Expectations are overly exaggerated. Because associates already have the demeanor of not getting enough pay, they try to the least giving those who want to work together an overload of tasks that becomes ridiculous and overbearing. There is no accountability held over those who do not wish to pull their own weight. But again, it depends on manager rotation. Not enough training for associates. There are problems with preferential treatment in all the Walmart stores i have worked in and also inconspicuous retaliation is always present. The culture that once made this company soar is slowly dwindling with the skeleton crew that chooses to do the least. If you care to much for your job and wish to do a great if not perfect job, these stores will consume you, spit you out, and replace you in a heartbeat. You will "burnout" if you try to fulfill every request. Working off the clock/ and while on lunch becomes a norm for many associates trying to meet managements demands. As a beloved associate who had been in the company for about 40 years shared with me, 'there are too many chiefs, not enough indians'.

    Advice to Management

    Care for the associate even though you have your own tasks. Don't just listen but hear what they have to say. They wish to contribute and feel apart of something bigger. They follow by example and if you treat them like they don't matter, they will not care to make a difference; it is all about team effort. Before taking a position as manager please be properly trained in those departments, know your areas. That way crazy expectations wont be a waste of the company time, trying to fulfill a textbook agenda. Yes, it will look great on paper, but only to make you promote fast, leaving a mess behind. Care and love the job, not just the pay.

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

    Pros

    It's exciting to work with different kinds of people and the schedule was always good. The breaks were good and time went by fast.

    Cons

    A lot of the management wasn't helpful and there was a lot of favoring of certain employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Its a job to pay the bills the employee discount is just ok you learn a lot about people and see all kinds of sights

    Cons

    Not a good place to work employees gossip and create drama get people fired lie on people management isn't helpful they create nonsense too and discriminate against people don't care about anyone but themselves no training that is worth raving about fire people for taking time off to take care of a sick family member

    Advice to Management

    Be fair cut the drama train people right stop the nonsense and be more compassionate towards the workers and stop being so rotten

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Weekends off except working one Saturday a month if you're a level 6 and if you're a level 7 you're supposed to work 3 Saturday's a month. You either work 6:30 to 3:30?or 7 to 4.

    Cons

    None really except to much freight at times and bin space gets low some times. Sometimes they send you freight you know is not selling well and you have to figure out where to put it.

    Advice to Management

    Always respect your employees and keep listening to them when they bring things to your attention.
