    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some managers let you pick your schedule as long as you are productive. The base pay is $15/hour for all APAs. The hours are flexible. The job is exciting.

    Cons

    The schedule is made three weeks in advance and they are usually reluctant to make changes. Sometimes you get stuck working late because you run into someone shoplifting towards the end of a shift and they take their time.

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

    Pros

    The associates that work there are great

    Cons

    Management spoke down upon associates over the walkie and in person. Would have customers ask why our manager speaks to us in that way. Hired part time with chance of full time, 3 people were fired in my department, all full time and they continued to keep me on part time.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind. We'll do more.
    Know policy, in stead of attempting to fire someone without a policy to back it up. Had to fight to save my own job.

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

    Pros

    Always something to do, so the time goes quickly. The other associates are, for the most part, fun to be around. Seeing the products people buy can be entertaining... Plus, it can help give ideas on what to buy.

    Cons

    Many of the members of management had "favorites" amongst the "regular" associates. So, if one of these favorites were caught doing something, like wasting time, not calling in when they're not going to able to come in, etc., it was fine. If a non-favorite was wasting time, or not spending a free second either calling to customers, or washing down the register or conveyor belt, they'd get yelled at or disciplined in some way.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the associates are working for crap pay, and know that all employees should be treated well. Don't have "favorites" that get special treatment, like more days off, overtime, or raises before people that actually deserve them. I was liked because I basically took up the slack when others couldn't come in, etc., yet the ones that were always calling in were the ones getting raises. It boggles the mind. Also, you should promote more from within, rather than hiring managers that need to be trained by non-management.
