I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Good benefits, Excellent 401k matching, GED reimbursment, etc. Better pay than most retail stores, good chance to move up if you can get along with your bosses. Lot of opportunity.

Cons

Too many chiefs and not enough indians syndrome, our store manager micromanages too much, nitpicks over small problems while large ones get larger. Employees who don't work and carry their weight stay on while those who work hard are demoted, quit, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage personal responsibility and ingenuity in the lower ranks, it will boost morale. Hire a person to do a job and stand back and let them do it, only step in if they aren't getting the job done, but for the sake of other employees, remove them if they can't perform.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    way better than i imagined. The managers were polite, some of my co workers were really cool, gave me good experience. I worked my butt off and got on everyone's good side so I liked my experience.

    Cons

    not enough to pay your bills, low hours, they take forever to get rid of bad workers, when the hood rats and white trash come on the first of the month they have a terrible attitude. they take advantage of the good workers by keeping then were they are at rather than promoting them, and the food jobs are messy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please do not tell employees you are going to do one thing and ignore them. Fix the problems in the bakery.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Great compensation amd benefits are decent. Working hours are ok but its typical retail so can get out of hand.

    Cons

    No real sense of what is needed in the stores. Reacts to others and then tries to beat them no matter how it affects the associates. To many measureables, spend all day typing emails instead of executing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the stores back to the managers.
