    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    None anymore. If you find a good store, people can be friendly

    Cons

    Hours, Favoritism, pay, expectations, poor management, unethical company now

    Advice to Management

    If management doesn't like you, you will be gone. They find the most ridiculous reasons to write you up and get you out of there. They are very "clique-ish" and play favorites. The worst part is that the company does not follow their own core values anymore. It wasn't always like that and it is very sad. With their competitors and the online businesses flourishing, I can only predict worse things for he future of this...

    Pros

    You meet great people, pay isn't bad, doesn't require massive amounts of debt due to student loans to move up.

    Cons

    Corporate screws the bottom line to keep their money in their pockets. Some management are quite horrible. Customers are horrible. Hours worked vs pay isn't balanced, for example my hourly pay when i left would have been $13 for a Shift Manager.
