    Pros

    Once you have learned the ins and outs of your job and learned to ask other associates who have been their longer for advice, your job will get easier and easier. Always be preparing yourself for the next level of responsibility, their will be opportunities just ahead. To be one of the lucky ones given the opportunity, this saying applies " Luck is when preparation meets opportunity" BE PREPARED! Know what you want and how you plan to get there. When you interview, think before you answer and be exact. If it involves people, know the names. If you gave direction, what was it and what was the outcome. In the job you have at WalMart now, it does not hurt to take daily notes on your activities. Through out the year these notes when reviewed, will tell you how you have grown in the job, and help you to prepare your possible replacement should you get promoted. (Having done this is another little thing that will make you stand out over your competition)
    Management, (Days) 3 on 3 off. (Nights) 4 on 4 off. These days, a decent incentive package.

    Cons

    Hourly overnight employees, With only 2 days off in any 7 day period, it is very hard for some to adjust to daytime sleep. You never really seem to get caught up. ( This is why so many go out to their cars and sleep at their 2am lunch break.)
    Other than that, it carries the same cons most every other retail job has. Pay will most likely be an issue everywhere else you start to work in retail. If you do not care to move up and join the leadership ranks, pay will always be in question. But, if you stay for many years and get good reviews, you will do OK. Don't live beyond your means!

    Advice to Management

    Train your people and they will perform.
    New hires should complete all required CBL's before being entered into the workforce.
    Backroom personnel should be taught how to use a Telzon by a qualified user, before being released. The little bit of time spent upfront will save tons later. (Maybe what the sponsor program could adopt. Sponsors should have a playbook with progressive steps to take, not left on their own to teach what they think you should know.
    Don't assume that just because the new hire has worked at Wal Mart before, that they will catch on on their own. LAY DOWN TRACKS FOR THE NEW TRAIN TO TRAVEL.
