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

    Pros

    Walmart is a big company, therefore, I receive all the benefits I could want including vision, medical and dental insurance.

    Not enough staff.
    Does not pay enough to keep techs inside the company as a career.

    Managers should hire more technicians to have more on standby when people call off.
    Certified Technicians should also be paid more in order to keep people at a living wage.
