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.

    Walmart is a great job to start at as a first job and has so many opportunities it can be your last job.

    Pros

    I love how they are willing to work with my schedule, I got as many hours as I wanted, my store always got good bonuses, and you can't get fired easily unless you do something extremely wrong like steal

    Cons

    Its busy so sosmetimes its hard to get recognition if you go above and beyond, angry customers that give you a hard time, getting scheeduled 5.5 hour or 6 hour shifts with only one 15min break

    Do not work here unless you are a desperate COBOL or mainframe programmer.

    Pros

    -You get paid every two weeks.
    -You get to walk around like somebody special telling everyone you work for a massive global company.
    -You get the chance to volunteer for non profits and Walmart pays them for your work. God knows they treat some random charity better than the employees.
    -You get to call yourself a "management employee" which allows you to talk down to lowly hourly employees whenever you are feeling used.
    -You get two weeks vacation per year. Even though you worked an extra 4 months this year, that two weeks still feels nice.
    -After 90 days, you get an employee discount card that saves you 10% on a bunch of items you never would buy such as camping stoves, sewing supplies and lettuce.

    Cons

    -Management lies to potential employees about the technology they will be using.
    -You will be introduced to and forced to learn 40 year old technology.
    -The bathrooms in David Glass Technology Center are horrific. They have about 50 stalls always full of defecating employees with NO VENTILATION! You have to have the lung capacity of Michael Phelps to use the urinal.
    -The benefits, which are already HORRIBLE, get cut every year as the prices go up 40+%, but remember, you get to work for Walmart.
    -Lots of hours. Be expected to put in 45-60 hours a week with NO compensation other than the privilege of working for Walmart.
    -Working in a massive two-story building with NO WINDOWS.
    -You pay more for a Sam's card than if you walked in off the street. Avoid the "benefits" if you do decide you are desperate enough to work here.
