    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience and great people to work with. Good entry level job to learn how to run a large volume retail store. Excellent skills to boost your resume and lots of networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Long hours and unpredictable schedule= no work/life balance. Constantly expected to do more and take on additional responsibility with less resources and staff. Constant turnover with associates and management.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people more, it would help with the turnover problem. Don't threaten people's jobs to motivate them to work harder. There are better ways to get your team engaged.

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

    Pros

    The company was a great place to work. The benefits were super awesome, and the environment was high pace.

    Cons

    I felt like they only offered management positions to their relatives and not to people who actually deserve the position. I sometime felt like their was alot of favoritism towards hispanics when it came to handing out promotions. I felt like I had to beg to get fulltime while others had it handed to them on a silver platter.
