    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.

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

    Pros

    As a stocker you get okay pay, we had an hour lunch break, and it isn't the absolute worst job in the world. I did have some REALLY nice coworkers. As much as I dislike socialization, I liked helping customers out.

    Cons

    First off, they don't give you REAL training. What I mean is, the first couple days you have to do a bunch of computer stuff that didn't seem to matter once you got on the floor. There, I was paired with an older associate who told me where stuff went. On my second day, I was put in a department with two or so pallets taller than me, BY MYSELF. I couldn't remember where stuff went so I was pretty slow in getting things up because no one gave me a price check "gun". They complained that I was going too slow. Duh! Sorry I can't remember everything after day TWO of being in a store I had never been in before! I never really got the chance to get faster because they kept switching me from place to place. So, I kept having the same issue--memory.

    Long story short, I got better at remembering where things went, but then I'd have other issues... THE DAY PEOPLE WERE NOT DOING THEIR JOB CORRECTLY. So, at night, I would go into panic mode trying to decide what I should do-- tell on them, or just roll with it. I rolled with it, which is my own fault. So I'm sure their mistakes PLUS mine made everything look much worse. I am not Speedy Gonzalez, Walmart.

    So, I just don't think I had adequate training. All they did was send help in the last couple hours or so, no one volunteered to show me quicker ways (with the exception of some very nice coworkers) the last couple days. They kept putting me in a department with more and more work (again, by myself) when they already showed concern about my speed. That doesn't make any sense, and it was a waste of time. Needless to say, I was miserable. When I got fired, it was a sigh of relief and annoyance because I felt that they were partly at fault in not training me correctly. But, hey, if stocking is your thing, go for it! If I were to come back to Walmart, I would never in a million years come back to this one.

    Advice to Management

    As far as stocking, you should put more than one person in all departments. We had more than enough stockers for that to happen. That way, it's more likely to have your store run smoother, instead of complaining about one person not being able to clear 100 huge pallets by lunch (major eye roll). I almost said this to the manager that fired me, but I'm afraid they might have taken my advice and just kept me there. NO, thank you.
