Current Employee - Grocery Directs in Athens, GA (US)

I have been working at Walmart full-time (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.

    Walmart as a company has always strived to do right by associates, but that does not always apply to individual managers

    Current Employee - Receiving Associate in Aberdeen, WA (US)

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Company emphasizes three basic beliefs, respect for the individual, service to the customer, and exceed expectations. The size of the operation provides many opportunities outside traditional retail positions.

    Cons

    Newer employees do not have access to all the benefits that older, grandfathered employees get. Merchandising and local control has fallen in recent years. Company lost its focus around 2005. Same sex spouses are not allowed insurance benefits, even in states where that is legal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regain focus, embrace all associates (particularly LGBT), Reread Made in America.
