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

    Pros

    How close everyone is, the management style, the coworkers, the benefits, the perks, and some of the customers are really nice!

    Cons

    Some of the customers can be very rude and irritating. It's hard to get through the day with their attidtude.

    Advice to Management

    You hire young students, a lot of whom are working their first job with you. Be patient with them and work with their school schedule. Their education is just as important as their job.

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

    Pros

    Good Pay and benefits, Excellent experience in managing people and corporate expectations.

    Cons

    Insane amount of hours, I had more control of my life when I was in the military. I did not know what days I would work. Upper management kept changing in 2.5 years went through 3 General managers. Management meetings frequently were reduced to blame shifting and yelling matches, I spent 23 years in Operations units in the military where life and death decisions were being made and no one would dare treat others like this the decisions being made were too important. Most caustic work environment I have ever experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring your golfing buddies and retired sports stars to run your facilities and get some real managers in place. My experience is with only the one distribution center in Hopemills, NC. I for one would rather get paid less and work for a smaller company with true open dialog than get paid well for lip service.

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

    Pros

    Pay is great. Fast PTO earnings.

    Cons

    The learning curve is a bit too short and the talkman (voice activated computer) is a nightmare sometimes...

    Advice to Management

    I wish there was an alternative to the talkman. i.e. Something that isn't voice activated, like a scanner.

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

    Pros

    Working in different cities and with a diverse group of associates - as well as customers. Meeting company executives and just being able to service customers that come through our stores.

    Cons

    Long hours, constant change, and managers being hired are getting younger. Not enough training. At times the company loses focus on their associates - and morale goes with it.

    Advice to Management

    Patience. Keep positive at all times. And just let things flow as it always comes together at the end.
