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

    Pros

    Pros of working for Walmart was that they offered full time and plenty of hours to work. Their benefit isn't as bad which was Kaiser. And when I was working, management was training me to do different task from each department thus learning and gaining more experiences.

    Cons

    Management can be a mess at times. Totally not organize type of work.

    Pros

    The pay is good. The workers are decent.

    Cons

    It’s just the managers who don’t understand communication skills, and accountability. They treat us like slaves, and have zero human remorse for their own actions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to understand, not listen to respond.

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

    Pros

    There are some good problems to solve.
    Good people to work with.
    Can have a healthy work life balance.

    Cons

    Gross mismanagement in the Reston office.
    Decisions are completely driven top down and managers are incapable of fighting them.
    People who just keep quiet regardless of what is happening in the organization are celebrated. Favoritism is rampant and it makes you question if it is even worth working there, knowing that your growth does not depend on your skills or contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to criticism and make amends. Don't target individuals because they spoke up for what they believe is right.
