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

    Pros

    Great hours, always upwards of 30 per week. lots of walking between entrances.

    Cons

    Understaffing is common. Checking receipts in a timely fashion sometimes means sacrificing quality for time.

    Advice to Management

    make sure to keep 2 hosts at each entrance. I realize that may seem a tad excessive, as the job is really just a show-of-force kinda thing, but people still sneak through if there's a rush.

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

    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

    Pros

    Discount and 401k and medical benefits

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

    Former Employee - Maintenance in San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - Maintenance in San Diego, CA

    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.
