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

    Pros

    The company believe in training and building up their employees. They want to see you succeed as an employee and will invest their time and money to train you properly with pay. Great work environment. Lots of entry level and professional job opportunities. Many opportunities to grow within the company. Great Management team.

    Cons

    Not that many cons. Great work place but salary managers have to work long hours a day but don't get paid for overtime work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, great at developing skills, great place to learn a skill and grow your resume, or grow with the company.

    Cons

    Understaffing issues negatively affects all parts of their business. However, Walmart has increased their minimum hourly rate with hopes to attract more committed employees, and retain better employees.

    Advice to Management

    At the store level, any time you are called in to over ride an associate following company policy, make sure that you first make it clear to the associate and customer that they were doing their job and that you are making an exception.

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

    Pros

    Pay is GREAT. They treat you like a friend. Very understanding about your situation as well. This will be my first job and it’s probably the best decision I could have made.

    Cons

    Attendance is huge to them. If you do mess up your chance with Walmart you will be asked why u quit or got fired from the number one retail store and that looks bad on you.

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

    Pros

    Complex projects, potential for big impact, most associates engaged in the work. Encouraged to move around the company. Opportunity to make good projects great. Sometimes hard to get things done (because of how big Walmart is) but its generally not because of the people its process. I look forward to working with the people I work with.

    Cons

    Too much analysis, not enough "so what"
    Pulled into "grunt work" that should belong in other areas.
    Program leaders are not receptive to negative feedback (i.e. increasing compensation, increasing the # of rotations)
    Expectation to network hard and self-learn new systems (of which there are many). Con for some, not all.

    Advice to Management

    The company is headed in the right direction (Doug gets it) but still treats MBAs like veteran Walmart associates who plan to spend 15 years here. We have different sets of goals, interests, and strengths. And you don't need to sacrifice the "Walmart way" to enhance our experience. You wouldn't expect your customers to come to Walmart "because they should want to shop there" so why expect your E3s and Merch Ops MBA employees to stay "because we should want to" (something we have all heard before). You should continue to make the programs better and more attractive, and the recruiting will take care of itself (graduates will find you).

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loved my coworkers. Benefits. Good position for energetic person. Always learning, everyday presents a new challenge. Good pay but you will earn it.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Work schedule changed at moments notice. Approved time off cancelled without notice. New managers come in making as much as long term managers. Be prepared to work on your days off. You are salary so you are working those days for free.

    Advice to Management

    You have to be willing to commit 150%. I appreciate the benefits and pay but they come at a cost and no guarantees, my job was eliminated without warning.

    Pros

    I love people...at Wal-Mart you meet so many people. My personality is so addicting people love me. I enjoy getting to know customers being the reason they leave smiling

    Cons

    Change...changes come all the time at Wal-Mart. In the blink of an eye policies change, management changes...nothing you can do about but except and adjust

    Advice to Management

    Follow policies at all times. Always stick to your guns and respect the policies. Definitely follow polices if you have leaders that work for you...such as a CSM
