    OK company to work for, but your experience will depend greatly on the people you work with.

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

    Pros

    If you are open to it and it's something you really want, you can learn a lot about how a business works and it is possible to learn and develop skills. I worked at Walmart while earning my degree and my managers were supportive of that goal and willing to let me change my availability so I could go to classes. Once you're off the clock you don't have to deal with anything and can go home without bringing work with you.

    Cons

    You will always have to give more to Walmart than you will get in return (especially compensation-wise). Workloads are heavy. Customers can be nasty and will treat associates poorly. Many long-time associates like to compare the way things are now to back when Sam Walton was running the company and say things have gotten worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve wages and benefits. Get a handle on improving the technology associates must use to do their jobs. The focus on customer service and keeping customers happy is fine but make clear that doesn't mean customers (or store management) are allowed to disrespect associates.

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

    Pros

    Being around the customers is great, I love a good challenge with a bunch of price matching and couponing. I loved watching over the self check out, making sure customers had a clear view on how to work the machines.

    Cons

    The only cons is that they do not accept doctors notes, and they really do not care how sick you are, a call off for any reason is counted against you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management needs to be more friendly, and needs to get to know more of the on floor people. They kind of just walk around like we are their little peasants.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Pay is nice, most associates are awesome.

    Cons

    Co managers micromanage to much, besides the pay having a rotation of 3 on and 3 off was great but they have since changed it to 4 on and 2 off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your managers manage and don't micromanage everything.

    Higher wage than any other store in my town. The associates I work with are nice. Schedule flexibility is good.

    Supervisors are over worked with ridiculous expectations, especially for what they pay them!

    Get on the same team, have the same goal, don 't throw your employees under the bus for your short comings.

    Pros

    Great place to work for. The management is composed for what has to be done. We're having complete end to end ownership of whatever we are doing.
    Work life balance is just fine. Get enough time to pursue personal interests. Compensation is good too (at par with all other big names)

    Cons

    couldn't find any as of now..
