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

    Pros

    Because I'm stocking, I can stock wherever my manager wants me too and not get bored because there are a lot of different departments. I like to move around when I work so I don't lose interest in a task I'm doing repeatedly.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of working at Wal-Mart is that I'm a new employee and still don't know where every thing is, so I feel really guilty when I can't tell/show a customer where an item they are looking for is.
