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

    Pros

    A very big company to work for. Room for growth. Job security. They offer 401k savings and option to buy Walmart stock.

    Cons

    Big company. Treated more as a robot. A trend that I notice is that they hire more part time associates and are getting rid of as many full time associates. Very easy for each associate do the work of 2 to 3 people all the time. Easy to get burned out.

    Advice to Management

    Need better pay and offer better benefits.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Other employees great to work with! Nice to get at least a little discount since pay is laughable. Hope you don't have family that's important that you want to spend most holidays (like Thanksgiving) with because family does NOT come 1st when you work here!

    Cons

    They DON'T CARE About their employees or their families no matter how much they say they do! They don't come close to paying enough to feed your family & once they get it in their mind to fire someone, they'll come up with any reason to do it! Even when you have PHYSICAL PROOF & WITNESSES that you didn't do anything wrong!! They said it doesn't matter, it's already a done deal! After I was a LOYAL EMPLOYEE over 3 years!!

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOU'RE EMPLOYEES! THEY are the people who talk to & take care of ALL of your customers every single day but you treat them like they (& their needs& families) don't matter! Do you know (or care) how many of them are having a hard time just feeding their families? Most have to have 2+ jobs & public assistance! Everyone DEALS with being treated like crud because they NEED the money so bad!!

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of anything good

    Cons

    The DC is a suck fest. Lazy people who are buddies with the manager get away with everything. Walmart is on the decline and it is the management taking it down.

    Advice to Management

    Head quarters better start paying attention to the field management. Especially the regional management who should be keeping the DC's all on the same page. The problem is the management knows they can get away with anything because the entire management is a bunch of lazy fat cat good Ole boys. Bad way to run a business.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job..right? It's better than nothing. I love my coworkers and some members of management. There are opportunities and perks. I feel it can teach a person the value of a dollar well-earned, albeit it comes at a high cost.

    Cons

    I am single and it's hard, if not impossible, when they cut hours and fragment what little hours they do give. By fragment, I mean when they won't set your schedule so that you can get another part-time job to supplement our income Who can live on $9 an hour, 16 hours a week with helter-skelter hours?!!! An employee cannot depend on them to be fair..nor do they seem to care. I would love to work full-time, at least then I would have more income but they really don't care. Walmart does not care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay us more, even a little more would be appreciated. Give us structured, set schedules. Stop talking down to us like we are below you, we aren't! If you have to cut hours, cut some of your own! Appreciate the fact that we, the peons, have to take a lot of BS and rudeness from the public, yet management will treat the customers like gold and us like dirt. Treat us better, pay us more fairly and give us set schedules!

    I have been working at Walmart (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Its a full-time position. I like what I do.

    Cons

    Constantly being pulled to cover other areas due to lack of training of management. As a result of this, causes a lot of tension. In spite of pay raise, you are paid for one position and you're doing the job of several. Its not high to do all that.

    Advice to Management

    Staff your area, learn to call people to see if they want to come in versus pulling from other areas.

    Pros

    There are some benefits, and profit sharing. They just added paid time off accrual for part time employees. My coworkers were diverse and hardworking.

    Cons

    Management not well trained, and sometimes disrespectful. Communication is not effective between managers, or with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Work with other managers to make sure an employee knows who they are responsible to, and how many managers are assigning projects to an employee.
