    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Discount and 401k and medical benefits

    Cons

    Customers are rude and demanding and we must serve them with a smile

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay the workers more because happier employees are more productive employees

    Pros

    get discount on everything but food. more benefits the longer you work there.

    Cons

    sketchy titles (your are not solely to be a cashier unless you have medical conditions), will force you into harsh situations(not good for anyone who cannot handle difficult people), employees and CSM's can be super annoying but the customers are the worst.

    Advice to Management

    communicate about your hiring positions better, if you hire someone who cannot be on the register and tells you, tell them that the position might require you to be on one at least. Don't state that they wont be on one if it is not true.

    Pros

    Medical is decent and it's steady work

    Cons

    Poor communication between management and their employees often times two or more manager of the same rank will give out conflicting orders to the people beneath them causing chaos and unnecessary stress.

    Advice to Management

    meetings among yourselves to accurately share all important information and be on the same page

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

    Pros

    It has a very easy and consistent paycheck and if you stay long enough there are many opportunities for life benefits.

    Cons

    Depending on your ability to be punctual you may be in good hands but if something comes up like a health issue where as you may need surgery Walmart has very little to no pity on you.

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

    Pros

    The only reason I'm still here is because I need the money other wise I wouldn't be here. I would say the relationships you build with co workers can be nice you can make good friends. Discount is okay nothing exciting.(10%)

    Cons

    However your reprimanded for even speaking to another conworker while on the job if u so much as work in the same aisle your reprimanded. Sad because in interview process they make you watch videos about team work. Managers are careless and stuck up once asked them to get Some one from the back to help me with a heavy lift and she responded no but u can do it your self . It ended up taking four men after my attempt to carry it . Btw this is my experience at Walmart Murphy canyon rd San Diego .

    Advice to Management

    Try to be kind instead of using your power to treat employees like slaves and like we're worthless. Don't reprimand us for talking to one another when you stand around talking on your cell phones for good amounts of the day (almost all of them)

    Pros

    I liked the family oriented environment. I worked with people I would have clean my yard. I miss collection of shopping carts, I don't know why I left.

    Cons

    I wish I was able to support my family working there. All I could afford was top ramen and spam to feed my family of 12.

    Advice to Management

    Don't act like you own my life. Smile more and take less smoke breaks.

    Its a wonderful environment and lovely coworkers. Walmart companies pay descent wages. You pretty good number of hours a week.

    It is hard work. And lots of different personalities. Somedays its can be rather slow, but fast on other days.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be understanding more.
