    The best reason to work at Walmart is communicating with customers and helping them solve problems and relate to administration.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Photo hours used to be 8-5, 9-6 and a few 12-9.

    Cons

    New Assistant manager does not care for Photo (personally said that) only cares about Pick up Today. Photo hours were cut to one associate 45 hours and they have to work 1 - 10 p.m. Photo closes at 8 p.m. on Sunday and 9 p.m. the other days. What do they expect you to do for the hour or two? You cannot leave your area per the Assistant manager. Why does a Photo Technician make less that a Pick up Today individual? You need to have talent and skills to be a Photo Technician.

    Advice to Management

    Release the chains and let us out of prison. Why not schedule the Photo person 9-6 so the individual is there when Photo opens. Especially with the holidays coming. Pickup personal cannot do all the photos that a technician can.

    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.
