    I have been working at Walmart (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time working at Wal-Mart and enjoyed being able to help customers and do whatever needed to help their shopping experience.

    Cons

    At this particular Wal-Mart (Whitinsville) , Front End Customer Service Managers (Generally second shift) , Very talkative , Cliquey , More about personal-lives than actual work. I've never been able to speak one on one with them without asking to pull them aside personally. This can be problematic as far as area covered and speed in which tasks are achieved. I have saved this review on a word document and intend to check and repost weekly so future applicants remain aware.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a closer eye on the productivity of your managers. Doing is worth more than delegating.

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

    Pros

    It is a great company to work for most of the time. They have great benefits like a discount program, insurance and paid time off.

    Cons

    The managers do not pay attention to you unless you have worked there long enough to teach yourself the job. It is kind of sad what the new hires have to go through to get a question answered.

    Advice to Management

    It would be wonderful if you could be more attentive to the employees. Show them you care...even if you don't. There were times when I started that I was handed a telexon or an MC 40 and literally had no idea what to do with it. When I turned to ask, the manager was gone.

    Pros

    So far the team seems great. Very nice management too. The first day of orientation consisted of a video about safety procedures and we had a tour throughout the store ( locating ladders and spill locations)

    Cons

    Im new here, so I dont know any yet. All i know that customers can be cranky, but you have to do is keep a positive attitude.
