    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -If you can get full time you're golden
    -Hard worker? You'll get overtime. Not consistent, unless you taking OT is more effective than having 3 other associates do the task on the next shift
    -A lot of training that can help you do your job and use to help you perform similar tasks and use similar equipment at other jobs
    -If your store does well in profit and customer friendly scores your quarterly bonuses will look good
    -Co-workers/Managers can be friendly
    -10% Discount Card on Most Non-Grocery items
    -Medical Benefits are okay
    -If the starting wage changes and you make under it you automatically get bumped up to the new starting wage when it takes effect (so if you're new and the starting wage raises a dollar above what you were hired at you effectively got a $1 raise)

    Cons

    -The more you jobs you are capable of doing the more they expect you to do in a day in and outside of the tasks of your position
    -Opportunities to advance differ from store to store, many play favoritism or try to only promote people who are already close to making the same pay as the starting pay for promotion
    -If you can do the tasks of a higher position you will be expected to do so for a loooooong time without the promotion
    -If your store plays favorites expect to be thrown a pity interview for a position once in a while as somebody is already guaranteed the position. Unless they tell you they want you for the position you don't have a chance at actually getting it unless the person they did tell that too screws up or suddenly declines.
    -Half to most of the management staff are Incompetent/Lazy
    -Same can be said of co-workers
    -The closer you are to the new starting wage the less you benefit from it, same goes for if you make above it unless you're in the higher paygrades
    -Ethics Hotline reports don't mean jack
    -Favoritism-based Promotions in most stores leads to lazy management of departments/zones, which screws with on-hands, orders, time management, etc.

    Advice to Management

    When you increase the starting wages, increase it for everyone by the same amount or give associates who were hired a year or more before the starting wages both the new starting wage and their normal annual evaluation. If it increases by $1 then everyone should be increased by $1 or increased to the starting wage and their annual review bonus.

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

    Pros

    benefits and vacation time and they usually work with you on the hours you want to work

    Cons

    management changes have ruined the job for me. been there 16 yrs and never hated my job till like the last year. don't know where they get their managers but they seem to just want to bully and boss people around anymore

    Advice to Management

    hire managers that weren't sweeping the floors a couple months ago.. college education would be awesome i have lost key workers in my department due to management and probably be leaving shortly myself.. don't like being treated bad and seeing others treated badly as well
