    Pros

    not bad pay as cashier

    Cons

    have to push the mastercard or it effects your job, though customers get sick of us asking.
    have to keep lifting heavy stuff as scanners don't work.
    get a lot of full time hours even part time.

    Advice to Management

    don't have the mastercard mandatory for us to do the job, if were making a effort should be good enough
    get scanners fixed.

    Pros

    The people I work with make it worth going in. Good benefits - including profit sharing.

    Cons

    The salary will never be good enough, but not bad for retail. Walmart never ever has enough associates on the floor - especially Saturday and Sunday. New associates are pretty well "thrown on the floor" to learn on their own.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    I liked this job because of the people. Nice managers and coworkers made the day fly by and I couldn't enjoy the music they played in the store more. Also they we're flexible with the hours and always up for a little break room dancing if you know what I mean.

    Cons

    The customers could get a little catty when their were big lines. Sooo man people trying to heckle and get discounts for tiny things. Also the staffing was a little light during holidays.

    Advice to Management

    More staffing during holidays would reduce the burden on employees to meet so many demands. A few extra people in the store helping out would go a long way. Also more part time workers would be nice since they are the ones who do the real work (am I right people)

    Pros

    The staff is very close knit and they make long shifts fun. Most managers are very open, friendly and easy to approach with a problem.

    Cons

    Walmart has begun to force its cashiers and CSM's to focus on things that shouldn't matter to a retail store. The Walmart Rewards MasterCard is pushed down our throats, and how many we get dictates our pay, our advancement opportunities and even what cash register we're at. In most cases, customers are so sick of hearing about it, that they cut us off or even get quite angry.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to back up its employees when they're right, especially on the customer service desk. Also, stop focusing on the MasterCard and focus on customer service.
