    Pros

    Good company with good ppl.

    Cons

    Bad HR negotiation skills.. they make you feel your skills are unappreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Had an interview and got selected. At first they said they offer H1B visa transfer after selecting HR was negotiating based on my current company I work for (biased and felt unappreciated for my skills ) and responded back with they are looking for us citizens or greencard holder.

    Good luck Walmart -You lost a good employee here.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work, I have gotten to meet many new people. There is always someone there to help you out of any jams that you may find yourself in, either work related or home life there is always someone willing to help you out. Great benefits and health insurance, plus a whole bunch of benefits and discounts they have to offer employees. Walmart reminds me of a big family.

    Cons

    I think that Walmart need to pay their employees more because the amount of work that is needed to be done is a lot. I believe if Walmart would stop paying so low then the people would be more enthusiast to stay longer. They need to stop hiring people that can't read because before any associate goes on to the sales floor they receive training about their job on the computer base learning system. People that can't read that get on the sales floor, or the backroom without knowledge and proper training then that will be grounds for a lawsuit if someone is badly hurt on the job.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice for the management team because I see first hand of what their job is all about. That is a very chaotic position that they hold. It's not enough hours in a day to complete the jobs. I give hands up for the people that are on the management team.

    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 know you are beholden to the shareholders. However shareholder profit is better served with HAPPY EMPLOYEES
    THANK YOU BIG BOSS MAN
