    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, great at developing skills, great place to learn a skill and grow your resume, or grow with the company.

    Cons

    Understaffing issues negatively affects all parts of their business. However, Walmart has increased their minimum hourly rate with hopes to attract more committed employees, and retain better employees.

    Advice to Management

    At the store level, any time you are called in to over ride an associate following company policy, make sure that you first make it clear to the associate and customer that they were doing their job and that you are making an exception.

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

    Pros

    Pay is GREAT. They treat you like a friend. Very understanding about your situation as well. This will be my first job and it’s probably the best decision I could have made.

    Cons

    Attendance is huge to them. If you do mess up your chance with Walmart you will be asked why u quit or got fired from the number one retail store and that looks bad on you.

    Pros

    Some of the pros to working with Wal-Mart is they are Flexible wirh your scheduling when needed (dont abuse it), my share bonuses, benefits, promotions, teamwork, good base pays, good annual raises,

    Cons

    Some of the cons can be you have those who lower moral, complain, no holiday pay, and high turn over (due to people's work ethic these days is terrible).

    Advice to Management

    Please Complain up. Do not vent to hourly associates or become a friend instead of a leader. Do not coach an associate then spread the news on the salesfloor this lowers trust and moral.

    Pros

    Management is always encouraging and appreciates all employees. When help is needed for whatever need not just management but any employee is always there to help. A comfortable reassuring place to work. Groton Connecticut.❤I love my job.

    Cons

    If your a dependable employee you'll never see any cons. Its like having a family working at Wal-Mart

    Advice to Management

    Although giving pins to those employees that deserve recognition has been removed. A new incentive for good work done would be favorable. Maybe a parking space designed for employee of the month.❤
