    Pros

    I was there to help put the store together which taught me a lot. I was also offer a manager position but I desired other things in life.

    Cons

    They did not pay enough. They started me off at $8.10 but I was only 19 years old at the time. The store manager was also a jerk.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better store manager that can encourage worker, instead of always threaten to fire them.

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

    Pros

    Location is close to the house. Good employee discount. Friendly co-workers good hours. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Rude customer. People leave the store any kind of way. They steal and bring back items without all the stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Higher more people that like their job.

    I worked at Walmart (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. Perhaps some can benefit from the wide variety of jobs in different areas, but low compensation for most positions is too negative to seriously consider them a good employer choice.

    Cons

    Wages are way too low and very little opportunity to raise them. They have this stupid, degrading dance that required shaking your butt down to the ground and "wiggling;" I refused to do it in training and nearly walked out then. They said it was for "morale" but IMO employee morale should be raised by fair treatment and individual compensation as earned by employee's job performance.

    Also there is a ton of horribly bad video training. The videos can put you to sleep and if you have any degree of ADHD, you'll find plenty of time to daydream and still pass the ending tests since it's mostly a bunch of bad acting to describe common sense duties.

    Advice to Management

    In this place, there is no point in complaints. Plenty of anit-Walmart people have taken them to court and have widely shown how they treat employees. Nothing is changing and the management is not likely to read or care about any employee's input.

    Pros

    Good pay for an introductory job. Most co-workers were very good to deal with. Managers let workers be independent as long as their duties were accomplished daily.

    Cons

    Store Manager sure didn't seem to have a grip on things. Sometimes the workload expected was pretty ridiculous, but that may have been due to the amount of overstock items on site.

    Advice to Management

    Didn't seem to be a lot of shadowing of up and coming managers. In my opinion, there should be 3 months of the incoming manager shadowing the existing manager, the next 3 months the incoming manager should take the lead.

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

    Pros

    Yearly pay increases, discounts, benefits

    Cons

    Scheduling system is terrible, understaffed, unorganized, no prioritization

    Advice to Management

    Have more people scheduled in the deli. We need at least a crew of 15 people in the deli to work various shifts but still have their days off.

    Pros

    There is opportunity in the company if your willing to take it. The pay us not all that bad for entry level.

    Cons

    Management treats their employees like children, customers look down at you. The farther up the chain you get the harder your superiors ride you because their bosses are riding them.

    Advice to Management

    Remember your associates work to live, not live to work. Dont expect more work from less people, you were in their shoes at one time. Break the chain and treat them like equals because past the title they are your equals.
