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

    Pros

    They paid me on time, I always got my 40 hours, employee discount, my fellow team members were great.

    Cons

    Besides the sub standard pay for considerably skilled,knowledgeable and laborious work (floor services), retail management screwing up in building maintenance management, B.S. benefit packages that are designed for you, to miss the deadlines based on the calendar not your time of service . I missed the deadline by a week and even after I went up the chain of command I was still denied, I got seriously ill shortly after that, recovery has cost me the last three-years. I was the go to GUY they call in for building maintenance beyond the scope of my title, covering a shift, what ever was required. PLANTATION SYSTEM STILL ALIVE AND WELL.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Smart people, latest technology - I've worked here many years and Walmart really invests the time and money to stay current. You will learn a ton if you work here.

    Cons

    Benefits changed this year to a mandatory curve so there's a very real chance that even if you perform well and meet your goals, you may not receive your bonus or RSUs. The targets you must meet are not defined and mainly have to do with extra credit, popularity or Indian nepotism. So only work here if you have negotiated a good base salary upfront.

    Advice to Management

    With this new incentive downgrade the company pay for engineering will be below market rate for about 15% or more of the company. It pits team members against each other because if you do well then someone must necessarily fail and you'll probably know them. The only recourse is to leave the company which is a shame because up until now, it had been one of the better ones.

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

    Pros

    After the 90 probationary period, you get access to neat bonuses: Programs for weight loss, free Rosetta Stone software, education assistance. Chance to learn every job at Wal-Mart.

    Cons

    The training videos are very clear on stocking procedures, but the management doesn't enforce them and productivity suffers. It's very simple: if you can't restock the full contents of a box, leave it on the cart and move on to the next I item, ultimately taking all overstock to the back. Instead employees are stocking well passed capacity. For example, finding fried rice where I should find broccoli beef, white rice etc. Sometimes I'll find things stocked in a completely different section i.e., family sized baked ziti stocked 3 shelves down and 2 doors over in the breakfast section. Yet every manager I've talked to a about this simply stares, shrugs or both. Which wouldn't be a big deal if they weren't also harping on our pace.

    Advice to Management

    Random audits of employee stocking procedures. Because clearly training videos with impossible to fail follow up quizzes aren't doing the trick. Or to save on time, affix pictures to the backs of the shelves so people know what belongs where. And some product pushers for all bagged products.
