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

Pros

The teamwork is bar none. Any questions, or help you need you can find. The in-house computer program for advancement and training is heads above the industry.

Cons

Dental. Part time associates are not offered it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow for some kind of dental, regardless of cost to the associate, even if it is only a discount card.

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

    Pros

    I met some nice people. A lot of my coworkers were great. You get an employee discount.

    Cons

    Management is rude to employees. They will tell you to do something a certain way and if a customer wants it differently, the managers act like it is the employees' fault for not doing it in the first place.

    Customers are terrible. They come in and lie about service so they will get free gift cards.

    Hours are never what you expect. They had the part time workers working 40 or more hours and would only let full time workers have 32 hours. To me, if you expect that you will be working 28 hours or less, that is what they should give you. A lot of times, you are scheduled to work 3pm to Close. 'Close' is whenever the store manager thinks merchandise is straightened enough. You never know when you are leaving. I've worked from 2pm to 4am more than once.

    They don't take safety seriously. If someone from OSHA is coming or arrives, they quickly want you to change anything that is a safety violation. They could care less any other time.

    Worst of all, they try to get rid of people who have worked there awhile. I've known of more than one employee who was fired right before they were set to retire and withdraw their Profit Sharing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that your employees are people. They shouldn't be treated badly just to save money.
