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

    Pros

    I have been with walmart for a few months now, and im loving it there. I work in overnight frozen/dairy, and though it may not pay well, its better pay than my last job. Cant really complain much.
    Friendly management, hard working employees, and stocks are mostly up.

    Cons

    Some dont follow the book when it comes to the rules and safty, inventory is a nightmare, and its almost impossible to move up unless you work so hard your body hits the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give career opportunities not only to the overly worked, but to those that actually CARE for the company, its future, and its operations.

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work is easy and monotonous so you always know what it will take that night to get it done. There are very few surprises.

    Cons

    managers made decisions based on their favorite people in the store. You almost have to pester them to get any time off request looked at. Training was hard to come by for anything. Policies were upheld or ignored based on the manager. Managers have been known to mistreat others so they would quit so no one has to fire them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand by your policies and treat every employee equally. Be respectful.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wal-Mart usually has the basic shopper needs, if it is in stock. It is not often that what I need is not in stock. The prices are usually the lowest on everyday needs. Wal-Mart is a habit, you trust that you will be getting the best price for what you need and keep you from hunting through adds and sales papers. Walmart's one stop to shop multiple needs makes it easier on the busy lifestyle customers have these days.

    Cons

    Customer service is just not there anymore. The employees never look happy. They look so stressed or focused on task that it feels like an inconvenience to stop them for help. When you do ask someone to help, they usually reply, " I don't know ". It is either they don't know the area or product in the store or they don't know who works in the area. Lines are too long to check out, and there are always just a handful of register operators. I will shop where I feel appreciated or see happy employees, the prices are comparable to just about anywhere now. It takes too long to shop and check out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees happy and they will make your customers happy. Keep registers open and running swiftly or customers WILL go somewhere else to shop. It is bad when even the employees will clock out and leave the store, and shop somewhere else to avoid long lines.
