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

    Pros

    The HR hiring process was seamless. I applied online through Linked In. Later that same day I recieved an email suggesting times for an initial interview. From there, I had a series of phone/zoom and in person interviews. I was hired in less than 30 days and negotiation were reasonable. Credit to the HR team, VP on site and my referral through Linked In. Walmart Labs in Reston, Virginia has built a strong team and planning more growth in the IT space. I highly recommend watching for openings if you are in the software engineering, cloud, or e-commerce space.

    Cons

    I didn’t think about this company sooner!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. The leadership team is doing amazing work along with the teams in the stores and behind the scenes. I can see you never settle and are not afraid to try new things to continue winning across all channels.

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

    Pros

    -Two paid 15 minute breaks.
    -1 hour lunch (with strings attached, however), which essentially makes the work day 9 hours.
    -Yearly bonus (but it is pennies compared to what the company makes in profits).
    -Relatively conscious of its environmental footprint.

    Cons

    -Dismal pay.
    -Benefits are costly and essentially keep you in poverty and dependent on Walmart products.
    -Management is very nitpicky and does everything in their power to drive workers away. Ridiculous turnover rate is due to leadership flaws that go all the way to corporate.
    -All other workers, especially on the CAP team, are pessimistic and feel the work is incredibly undignified.
    -Corporate management does everything in its power to demean workers.
    -Has a shortage of workers on the CAP team, yet expectations to process shipments on time remain unrealistically.

    Advice to Management

    All the problems of Walmart are rooted in its corporate management and drive to make disgusting amounts of money for its shareholders (at the cost of its workers). The company makes upwards of $200 billion in a fiscal quarter and barely pays a living wage. Most workers I know that are NOT teenagers or young adults have multiple jobs in addition to Walmart.

    Stop being an evil company and reinvest in your workers and surrounding communities. The bottom line isnt worth it.

    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.
