    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, steady schedule, coworkers bond over bad treatment, coworkers willing to help when needed, always something to do, one hour lunch, discount, quarterly bonus,

    Cons

    Very poor treatment, spoken to rudely daily, negative atmosphere fostered by store manager, not enough payroll, spend a lot of time doing work that should have been done by others-no accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Adhere to the "respect for the individual" mandate. Learn how to get the most out of your associates, by speaking to them better. Please and thank you goes a long way.

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

    Pros

    The store management culture is hit-and-miss. If you are part of a 'good' store, you feel like your contributions count toward the greater goals and the management team seems to care about you, the individual.

    Cons

    'Bad' stores however are more frequent and roughly equate to being a lackey in a chain-gang. You're a number to the management team, and all you do is produce numbers. The disconnect between the hourly associates/managers and salaried management team is horrendous.
