    Pros

    The management respected their best workers and gave them "fringe" benefits like priority scheduling and flexible hours. Good deeds were recognized and extra work was generally rewarded.

    Cons

    Of course, it's Walmart, so you have the low wages and the poor or nonexistent vacation. Nothing really felt negotiable, and your job didn't feel like it was going to go anywhere despite the fact that they parrot "opportunity" in your ear every chance they get.

    Pros

    Great place to work they respect their employees and they have great benefits including retirement and health benefits, bonuses, and vacation pay.

    Cons

    The cons are just the normal everyday thing of being on your feet all day long, dealing with irate
    Customers, and they overflow of returns at Christmas.
    I loved my job at Walmart.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers, decent flexibility, amazing management, good minimum pay, good atmosphere at this store at least, and their stores are everywhere so if you move you can easily transfer.

    Cons

    The training is more video-based than hands-on at first, customers can be more impolite than other places, and I have heard stories of people not moving up a lot after working there for many years.

    Advice to Management

    I can't think of anything now since I started work here just this week but when I think of something I'll write stuff here that isn't just filling up the 20-word mimumum.
