Overall this was a good job especially since it was my first job while attending college yet, I always had problems with my schedule, and I was a student for most of the time. Their training for pharmacy staff is bad. I feel they should completely change the training and not place too much limit of technicians while in the pharmacy concerning wallets, and types of drinks to drink during your shift (we can't take anything but water to drink throughout our shift in the pharmacy, and nothing bigger than a basic water bottle size).
pay higher than independent pharmacies
lunch times for long shifts, communication, limits on technicians during work
Great job for those who love to interact with people on a daily basis.

Great job for those who love to interact with people on a daily basis and standing for long periods of time. The job is very easy once you learn the basics and management is always willing to work with you if you inform them in advance.

working there is annoying. they just basically throw you in there with no training. I worked there for 3 weeks and still can't explain my job in detail. there is like 4 people above you, and they all tell you how to do the ob differently. They schedule people to work 7 day straight. This was only a summer job for me and I'm so happy. I don't understand how people work there for 5+ years.

Walmart is an unattractive job in terms of the job description and demanding hours but has a lot of great managers and coworkers. I mainly worked for the pay to help with college. I didn't learn much at Walmart unlike my other jobs but I believe it brought out the best in me and taught me a lot of life lessons.

As a former Assistant Store Manager, I know that Walmart---as a company--has great policies for employees and customers, a great focus on progress, and goes through great lengths to test and implement improvements. That's all awesome; but it means almost nothing when in-store management is plagued by incompetency and flat-out idiocy. I started off in a great store with a good store manager. He followed policies and was fair. He set the tone for the other managers, who were pretty good to customers and employees. He helped me move up into management by giving me opportunities to learn new skills. Unfortunately, most management is garbage. Most have their own interpretations of policies, botch things up, blame the subordinate employees, and wonder why they have call-outs and high turnover. Regional management and higher needs to do some sort of "undercover boss" type of thing nationwide, keeping hourly employees anonymous. Heads would roll from salaried store management teams.

Management was good to employees; had good hours; was asked ahead of time if I could work ovetime if they needed the help; fair to their employees; management always listening to customers as well as customers
enjoyed working in the neighborhood market atmosphere.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Port Orange, FL – July 21, 2018
enjoyed the people and coworkers. Walmart neighborhood market is more of a family type atmosphere. you get to know your customers as the same ones who live nearby come in all the time and you get to know them by name.

Working with the public can be rewarding and also very infuriating. Some people are very nice, caring and appreciative. Other people seem to think that we make the policies at WalMart and everything is our fault. We try our best but sometimes it is unappreciated. Some of us care too much about the company while others just see it as a job. The best part of the job is helping others and making others smile and laugh. The hardest part is management wanting yes-people not people with a voice. Walmart thinks a computer making the assocaites schedule works when in real life it doesn't They have tried this multiple times and each time it has not worked. Most people can't work from sun up to sun down because they have a family to take care of. Family is important.
