    Pros

    Good coworkers, and benefits, that's about it

    Lazy Fiji Co managers and Fiji support manager, poor pay scale.

    Take care of business taking care of the store, than flirting around with your Fiji support manage, and quit displaying your relationship to the workers, very unprofessional, and a waste of company money..

    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.

    Pros

    I manage my own time and my associates time. Very busy job, if you love fast phase job, this is for you.

    Cons

    Upper management doesnt listen to their employee, hours gets cut all the time, NO SUPPORT IN MY DEPARTMENT WHEN SOMEONE CALLED IN IN MY TEAM NO ONE WOULD HELP AT ALL.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your Department managers! specially when they are really knowledgeable in their dept. MOST OF THE COMPANY'S REGULATION DOESNT MAKE SENSE SO ITS UP TO US TO DECIDE FOR OUR OWN STORE!

    They were good with giving me the hours and keeping the set schedule I wanted

    Cons

    I was not able to grow because I was stuck working in the freezer also they don’t accommodate for you being sick unless you got sick pto

    Advice to Management

    Accommodate for sick people even with no pto and make known who’s in charge were I have like 5 managers and not one can give me a set answer about anything

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Worked with my school schedule
    Can easily get promoted with hard work.

    Cons

    CSM position didn't have a base pay, it was only $0.50 extra an hour! There were maintenance and cashiers that were paid more than the CSM's. I was not even trained as a CSM. I was just handed the palm pilot and was told I was the new back up CSM and that they would use me whenever they needed extra help (which was all the time). Although untrained, I was left the only CSM for a whole shift, and other department managers and ZMS where not helpful in sending reinforcements. The Management was horrible, didn't listen to any of the CSM's problems and complaints.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people, well a handful, the others mainly just care about them selves.

    Cons

    Underpaid DMS and support managers and some of the actual work horses that keep the place afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional you can be nice and respectful in the way you correct an associate. Some of you had secret buddy buddy systems and attempted to push out the deserving. Don't make fun of and or put down your associates some of them won't be disrespected.
