    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Pay is okay for retail, depending on where you live
    -Vision and Dental are pretty good, actually
    -If you can get full-time, it's a pretty cushy job
    -Flexible scheduling, even at 40 hours, I go to school full-time and have never had a conflict with my full-time work schedule.

    Cons

    -Can be difficult to get full-time
    -Part-time hours are inconsistent and not good for people with families
    -Longevity is celebrated on paper, but in reality the old-timers usually get the short end of the stick
    -Virtually no benefits for part-time. You can get time off just about whenever you want, but it's hard to cover unless you accrue PTO at the reasonably quick full-time rate.
    -Health insurance is a joke. You're better off stuffing your mattress.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the people you need to do the job or move the goalposts. You can't consistently lower hours and raise productivity goals at the same time. You're burning people out.

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

    Pros

    Great culture based on integrity and hard-work. Good performance-based compensation. Incredible people.

    Cons

    Your experience can vary wildly depending on your manager. Get a bad one and you'll be miserable. Get a good one and this is one of the best companies around to work for. Health care benefits are below-average.

    Advice to Management

    Replace under-performing/poor middle managers. Invest in health care for associates.
