I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good benefits, Excellent 401k matching, GED reimbursment, etc. Better pay than most retail stores, good chance to move up if you can get along with your bosses. Lot of opportunity.

Cons

Too many chiefs and not enough indians syndrome, our store manager micromanages too much, nitpicks over small problems while large ones get larger. Employees who don't work and carry their weight stay on while those who work hard are demoted, quit, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage personal responsibility and ingenuity in the lower ranks, it will boost morale. Hire a person to do a job and stand back and let them do it, only step in if they aren't getting the job done, but for the sake of other employees, remove them if they can't perform.

    Pros

    They provide income when other options aren't available. The other associates are generally nice people.

    Cons

    Lots of moving stuff around without forward motion. This lack of productivity holds done wages. The training is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apply Peter Drucker's thinking
