    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.
