Fair and consistent job enviroment
Asst, Manager (Former Employee), Orange Park, Fl.September 19, 2014
As you only hear the negative in the news of Walmart. It's only fair to the upside too. Walmart may not be a high paying job. But offers fair wages for the work they provide for the associates. They also are strict with management to be equally fair to all associates. Associates also have the comfort of jobs security if they only just produce the jobs – more... they are assigned. I never saw anyone push hard to work beyond their pace. And most employees are satisfied with their jobs and stores. The company takes great pride in making employees feel they are a part of the store and each has an important roll. – less

Hard work, not much consideration for employees
Sales Associate in the Deli (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXSeptember 19, 2014
The work is tough and when there is low staff you have to do everything yourself. Management expects you to have everything done even if there are not enough people to get the job done.

Productive, fast paced, and constant variety:))
3rd Shift Cashier (Former Employee), Shelbyville, KYSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: when we meet goals we got a free lunch :))
Cons: you really need to keep an eye on the time so you do not go to lunch late.
One of the tricky parts of my night was when we perform resets. The cashiers have got to be off the machine at 11:45 pm. And we can not ring up customers from 11:45 to midnight. This allows the computer to reset for the new day and get all the totals from the previous day. So I try to talk to my customers to make the time pass quicker. Some times the – more... customer will ask why aren't you checking us out? And I explain why. My regulars grew accustom to it. But anytime I had new people in my line I would explain to them all. It helped them understand what was going on and that I didn't forget about them. And as soon as possible I would race to get everyone out the door quickly. I also apologized for the wait. Good communication helps create good customer service. – less

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Covington, GASeptember 19, 2014
Pros: awarded safety parties for accident free days
Cons: little management support
A typical day at work is fast paced. The store I am located at is small but always busy. I have learned new skills to help me progress in any work environment. The hardest part of my job is also the most enjoyable, the customer interaction.

PRODUCE SALE ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), san tan valley, azSeptember 19, 2014
What I have learned: I learned how to properly display produce, how to check what food is good/bad, what items are sold by pound and by each. How to properly store produce on the back room, and how to trim produce.

Management: I think the management area needs improvement. They place someone who knows nothing about a particular department in that area – more... for them to manage and they do not know what they are doing which results in the employees to get in trouble for the managers mistakes. They give peoples shifts away to other people without asking the other person first before giving their shift to another person. They do not discipline fairly, and change schedules without notifying an employee about schedule changes.

Co-workers: I get along with all my co-workers, we all understand how each other does things and we communicate with each other and come up with ways to get tasks done quicker. – less

Floor Stocker (Former Employee), Dallas, TXSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: lots of benefits
This is best job I've had so far that I really like! I've learned how to help customers in more then one way; I'm what you would call an expeditor. The hardest part is working by yourself but after weeks and weeks of the same thing you enjoy doing your job. Especially when you believe the job is difficult to begin with. This is the kind of job I would – more... love to stay and grow with! – less

Unloader/Stocker (Former Employee), Audubon, NJSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: some benefits were worth it.
Cons: this store could have been managed better
A typical day would be my team come in and start setting up to work on the truck. Sometimes waiting on management to open doors for us to receive the pallets needed or to let drivers in and out. The hardest part of the job was slacking co-workers and management giving us unrealistic time tables to get things done when we were short handed. I enjoyed – more... my job when I know I helped someone with something they could not find or needed help getting. – less

I learned many things at Wal-Mart, I learned that just because a job seems tough, if you use your brain as well as your muscles than a difficult task might not be as difficult as you think.

Pros: good management team and good co workers

Connection Center Sales Associate (Former Employee), Claremore, OKSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: possible bonus......
Cons: too large of a corporation that doesn't care for their employees
I worked here for over five years and no one even cared that I had put in my two weeks notice. Employees are under paid, under appreciated, and OVER worked.

Department Manager (Current Employee), Sedalia, MOSeptember 19, 2014
A typical day starts off with me working any merchandise received the night before, I then scan the shelves of all of my departments and order merchandise. At nine o'clock every morning I attend the meeting where I am given any notes that need to be completed throughout the day. I delegate tasks to my associates and continue working to keep the shelves – more... stocked. Throughout I assist customers when they need it. When there are modular categories to be reset I adjust my schedule to complete them. My co-workers are very friendly. Every morning the store manager holds a meeting where he updates us on recent sales and other news and we all perform the Wal-Mart cheer. In this job I have learned a lot about customer service and what it takes to lead others and ensure everything gets done in a timely manner. – less

Walmart is what you make it. You can excel if you work hard and follow the core beliefs of the company.
Claims Supervisor (Former Employee), Williston, VTSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: advancement, promotions
Cons: no flexible scheduling, that can hold you back
When I started at Walmart the company was more family oriented with flexible scheduling and management had more freedom with associates. Over the years as policies changed and became military like, the way to run a store changed. Its like Home Office micro manages every aspect of the store. With that being said it is what you make it. There are opportunities – more... to excel and move up in the company. – less
