Former Employee - Store Manager in Memphis, TN (US)

I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Leader in the industry.
The associates you have the privilege of working with and leading.
Great compensation for managers.

Cons

Bottom line has become more important than associates working there.
Below average compensation for hourly associates and schedules for hourlies are really inconsistent.
Becoming scorecard driven and it's taking away from customer service levels in the stores.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the leaders in the stores that have been with the company for many years. They do know what they are talking about. They have a better idea of what they need to run the store than a computer or some college kid fresh out of school in Bentonville does.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I did enjoy the job for the first while I was newly married and in school full time. I did eventually get a full time position but it was at the cost of my getting to keep a full schedule. Getting to see what not to do as a Manager was a pretty common occurrence.

    Cons

    Learning from the mistakes of others in what to actually do. At first they would work with my school schedule they eventually started trying to make me feel guilty for needing to change my schedule or would threaten less hours if I did not make Walmart my first priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pass over people who actually know how to do a job and are willing to work for it, for people that are your favorites. Ineptitude begets Ineptitude. Get back to the grass roots values that Sam Walton built the company on. Merit raises and Merit promotions.
