    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 have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Scheduling availability and promoting are some of the best reasons to work for a company like walmart. Also quarterly bonuses, even for part time.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges would be rude customers. That is the main one, otherwise it is a pretty professional place to work when it comes to management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your associates.

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

    Pros

    This company offers stability to its associates.Most of the associates are good people. When you work for this company, the employees become like extended family.

    Cons

    One of the issues with this company is the difficulty in achieving full-time status. If you have limited availability, it is even more difficult to get full-time status. Training is also an issue. New associates get very little hands-on training before being sent to the sales floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some policies make it difficult to advance within my current store. I understand the need for these policies. However, I have several family members working in the same facility. This is the only store within 60 miles.

    Not family oriented, walmart always wants management there, you work a lot of hours and have to reschedule days off when told you have to work days off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For store managers to understand that everyone has a life outside of walmart as well. I love my job however I love my family as well.
