    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    Didn't mind that my schedule would only allow me to work 3 days a week (the weekend), training was great, managers were nice, helpful, and understanding.

    Cons

    The store was open 24 hours and when I would get off later than usual the night time manager would make me work late because her "crew" was never on time.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a cashier, they start you at a few dollars above minimum and I got a 10 cent raise after six months. They are extremely flexible with hours and scheduling. Great high school and college job.

    Cons

    Just be very specific about your availability. As long as you're specific, you get what you want.
