More Pros and Cons

  1. "APM"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Asset Protection Manager in South Milwaukee, WI
    Current Employee - Asset Protection Manager in South Milwaukee, WI

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    working internals and working with APA's for external theft is great. My MAPM is great that will do everything he can to help me and the business.

    Cons

    The role is shifting to more of a auditor to the ASM and DMs. Less with protecting assets of the company and more of a babysitter or auditor of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your APMs and work along side of them. Most are there to prevent shrink and take great pride in having the lowest possible shrink

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

    Pros

    The job was relatively predictable and routine. Managers were competent and respectful. It's usually possible to transfer between departments when there are openings. Good communication about the state of the store.

    Cons

    Creepy cult-like propaganda in the break rooms. Productivity is not rewarded with raises. Sometimes a new hire with no experience can make more than co-workers who've received a "maximum" raise just because they bumped up the starting wage.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to individual performers and put people together who work well together and hustle, not necessarily just get along well.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    • Flexible hours/scheduling
    • Cross-training opportunities
    • Typically hire internally
    • Develop customer service skills
    • Bottom-line pay is being raised across the board thanks in part to Walmart's (relatively) new CEO, Doug McMillon
    • It is easy to switch departments/jobs if the need arises

    The future is looking a bit brighter for Walmart employees than in years past - thanks largely in part to the pay increase at the bottom line.

    Cons

    • Pressure from management to engage in various forms of solicitation (credit card sales, donations, etc)
    • A single employee has little overall say on how their store is operated
    • Anti-union / worker's rights
    • Unforgiving call-in system (especially for new hires, and management can alter the system to falsify records)
    • Management will always make the decision to "take care of the customer" - even if it involves overriding an associate's policy-based decision
    • Management (and HR/Personnel) care about the store/company's wellbeing - not yours
    • It is likely that you will feel like a "cog in the machine" rather than a member of a team

    Overall it is unlikely that you'll be able to live comfortably on a full-time salary as a Walmart employee at the store level. The situation may be different working for corporate / the Home Office.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bending over backwards for individual customers. "The customer is always right" does not refer to any given customer(s), it refers to market forces (i.e. "the invisible hand") determining which products should be carried & sold.

    Treat your subordinates with dignity and respect if you expect them to have any respect for you at all.

    Keep an eye out for associates with the right personality & skill-set, and help them hone their professional career.
