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

    Pros

    The ability to have 40 hours every week is nice.

    Cons

    Micromanagers, "My Guide", Having 2 hours to do 8 hours of work. No ability to have a coaching lifted ( write up) until the next year of the coaching date. 1 coaching = no promotion, ever.

    Advice to Management

    Find a creative way to give employees the ability to have a coaching lifted without having to work there over a year, this is why no one wants to work here.
