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

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Walmart is because it is easy to get hired. If you work hard the management will like you.

    Cons

    They do not like to give raises. You get different instructions from each of your many bosses. Most of the employees are trying to do the least amount of work possible, leaving the majority of the work to the minority of people who have a work ethic. Hard workers don't work here for long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire people who don't work hard and give the hard workers more hours.
