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

    Pros

    The department manager was very nice and knew what she was doing. She made sure everybody in the department was took care of and trained them in everything they needed to know very well.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was crazy if people called in because we only had a few people in the bakery and deli together. If somebody called in from either one we would end up borrowing people from the other.

    Advice to Management

    I really have no advice to the management. Everything ran pretty smooth, sometimes they would all want to play boss and give us all different instructions, but we finally got it all straightened out. It was because we had higher people coming in every week changing how we did things and we'd learn how to do it and they'd come back and change it again.
