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

    Pros

    Pay is greater than minimum wage.
    The people you work with are amazing for the most part.
    Lots of opportunities to learn new skills and every day was a workout so no need for a gym membership.
    If you work hard and focus on the job and go above and beyond whats asked of you it will eventually get noticed and you can get promoted.
    Walmart is a stable job in an unstable economy.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment especially during the holidays.
    Management pushes you to be your best but forgets that your human sometimes and pushes too far, but if you can make it through a Black Friday event with stressed out management you will survive at Walmart, and you will be all the better for it.
    With the current job market competition for promotions is strong, making them much harder to come by.
    Work drama among your peers can be pretty unsettling so I would recommend to stay as far away from the drama as possible it'll save you a lifetime of misery and you'll be happier in general.

    Advice to Management

    You guys know your stuff when it comes to running a business, just remember your people are just that... people, not machines show more empathy and try to find ways to make the work flow more efficient for the sake of your peoples health, mental and physical.

    Current Employee - Cashier in Oceanside, CA

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    My mother passed unexpectedly from a stroke. It was such a shock because she was so healthy and took good care of herself. My siblings and I had to clear out her 4 bedroom house she lived in for 45 years. It took us about 3 months to sort through everything. I had to be out of town to do this. I was a wreak because of how close we were. She was my best friend. My management got everything processed for me because I had a hard time focusing on something like that. It was a huge help.

    Cons

    In this case - nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for helping me through a really difficult time.
