    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    $14-$15/hr for department managers

    1 hour (unpair) lunch breaks

    Potential quarterly bonus for “clean, fast, friendly” store score

    Occasional food provided in break room (for major holidays mostly)

    Cons

    No sick time yet you’re penalized for illness

    Claim to have no quota to meet for shoplifters, yet will give warnings for not enough apprehensions, regardless of doing well in every other area of the job

    No holiday pay

    3 paid bereavement days max

    Too many managers teaching different methods of working

    Ignorant point system for attendance. Right now is 1 point for a call in, regardless of the reason, .5 point for 10+ minutes late, regardless of reason, 3 points for a no call absence. New hires get 4 points in 90 days before termination. After 90 days, 9 points within 6 months is termination, and soon they will be lowering that to 5 points. This coincides with no paid sick time for employees, so if you’re out for 3 days with the flu, that’s 3 points.

    Advice to Management

    Holiday pay/bonus. PAID SICK TIME FOR FULL TIME ASSOCIATES. At least 5 days of bereavement to cover a full work week. PRACTICE “One Best Way”, don’t just say that’s not how you run YOUR store.

    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.
