    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None I have nothing good to say

    Cons

    I am extremely disappointed in Walmart and the stress they have cause due to my sudden illness. I have has 3 emergency surgeries within a 3 month time period. I have had nothing but problems with my insurance and disability and them being rude about my return to work. I feel like I need to rush back to work so I do not lose my job. I have not received one call seeing how I am doing from one person. That makes me see how valued of an employee that I am. This is not a way to treat valuable employees who invested most of there life with this company. Extremely upset!

    Advice to Management

    GET WITH IT! Have some compassion and dignity, especially to hard working employees.
