    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are really good. Regular employees are really great to work with too.

    Cons

    Management treats the company better than the employees. Doesnt give holiday pay for working holidays. Hard to ask for time off due to PTO system. If management doesnt like you, they will find a way to get rid of you. Doesnt reward hard working employees

    Advice to Management

    Do right by your employees. Move up the hard workers instead of favorites.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best retail store to work for! I love Walmart! It’s a great company to work for but changes rapidly... you have to be open minded and willing to adapt!

    Cons

    The schedule is pretty hard to have any kind of time for your family or even yourself. Not a set schedule or regular days off at all

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your associates... they are the backbone to the Store . If you are good to them... consistent and fair you won’t go wrong.

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

    Pros

    Most co-workers are easy to get along with.
    Always things to keep you busy.
    Get to meet new people.
    Room for advancement.

    Cons

    Some management really do not care about their associates.
    Associates ideas and opinions do not matter.
    When they have wrongfully reprimanded you, they are either very slow at making their wrong right or they just don't correct their wrong.
    Some management are allowed to bully and talk down to their associates with no consequences instead it's the associate that faces the consequences.
    The point system is terrible, can be incorrect.
    All holiday time/pay is rolled into the pto.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates a little more. Actually care about them instead of pretending. The point system needs to be fixed.

    change schedule without notifying you
    Not enough coverage , sometimes stuck being late for lunch
    Need more workers on the floor , always long lines but not enough cashiers out on registers
    To aisst customers.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is be very understanding and outgoing most times management may not be on the team side most times they make me feel like their against me .. I try to do the best i can by coming to work on time and getting the job done but sometimes I'll just like 4 tasks to do and have to be done within 20 minutes.

    Pros

    Employee discount, quarterly bonuses if store does good

    Not paid enough for the work we have to do, too many bosses; ie 5-7 assistant managers each telling you do to something differnet

    Advice to Management

    talk to each other on what the plans are, show respect to other employees; saying HI to an employee walking by isnt that hard
