I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Leader in the industry.
The associates you have the privilege of working with and leading.
Great compensation for managers.

Cons

Bottom line has become more important than associates working there.
Below average compensation for hourly associates and schedules for hourlies are really inconsistent.
Becoming scorecard driven and it's taking away from customer service levels in the stores.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the leaders in the stores that have been with the company for many years. They do know what they are talking about. They have a better idea of what they need to run the store than a computer or some college kid fresh out of school in Bentonville does.

    I worked at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management here was very laid back from what I saw. As a cashier I was started off at $8.40 an hour here in California and got more or less a $400 paycheck twice a month. Be prepared to be flexible what you work as because you will be running around the whole store doing anything you're told! Very kool atmosphere that's non-hostile! Just a pain because you will work a lot for that $8.40!

    Cons

    We wouldn't get enough customers and therefore didn't have enough money for man power to run the store up to its full potential. Sometimes we would get slammed with customers at a time and only have one person at a register and another at customer service! Also, since it was very lonely most of the time you'd get bored quickly. Not the ideal place to get a promotion. Also like any work place favortism lived there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change prices to lower competitive prices! Why spend 30 cents for a cucumber when i can get 10 for $1 across the street!
