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

    Pros

    If you health benefits then this place is great! You meet a ton of eccentric people. And the room for advancement is amazing!

    Cons

    To menu "challenged" peers, the store was horribly dirty half the time and I actually contracted a rash from the stock room. Turned out to be Merca, a bad skin infection as to which I was talking a slew of meds. And the statement the "the customer is always right" is 💩!

    Advice to Management

    Clean your act up and stop discriminating your employees! We are all human!!!

    I worked at Walmart as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people on the team. Excellent Associate engagement activities.
    Interesting work with decent training.

    Cons

    Training was meant for day to day regular work, but I was hired as a holiday temp and the training could have been tweaked to better serve our purpose.
    There was no time off allowed during the holiday to spend with family, and I might have stayed if that wasn't the case. Opportunity for career growth seemed limited.

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

    Pros

    My experience with working here ranges far and wide. I can do pretty much anything in any part of the store. I'm cross-trained like you wouldn't believe. However, as far as working in the eCommerce department goes, that primarily consists of filling orders for customers, quality checking them as I go, handling escalations and inquires from customers, supervising my dispensing associates to ensure we push the orders out to the customers in a timely manner, etc. There's a lot of heavy lifting involved in this job believe it or not. I have to use the forklift on a daily basis to fly down pallets of merchandise from the top shelf so that I can ensure my customers get the exact items they ordered. A good understanding of technology(computers, smartphones) also plays a big role in the job. All-in-all, I wouldn't trade my experience from working here for the world. I feel like it's set me up for success in my future endeavors!

    Cons

    Like all jobs, people who don' want to work make things much harder, and I feel as though there's more of those people at Walmart than other jobs. At times, the department is heavily reliant on the other parts of the store. We need THEM to keep merchandise in stock, and make sure all of their on-hands are correct. Now, in a perfect world, this would be the case, but... Anyway, customers can also be an issue , of course. Our numbers are very important, and the most important stat those numbers is CSAT (Customer Satisfaction) Score. The problem here, is, customers will complain in post-order surveys about things that are completely out of our hands as Pick Up associates, such as not having an item in stock because the other departments didn't correct their on-hands , among other issues.

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

    Pros

    Great flexibility, great hours, great people, great benefits, 15 min breaks every 2 hours, just an all around great job!

    Cons

    Besides Walmart being a corporation and it being hard to get ahold of anyone higher up for issues unresolved by store managers, I personally don't see any cons to working with Walmart, It really is a great job!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates, a lot of them may just blow smoke but some of them actually want to increase sales and better the company.
