    Pros

    -Decent benefits
    -Make new Friends
    -The discount can be used on a leave of absence which is mighty useful.
    -If you have the availability you can get extra hours, especially during the holidays
    -Sometimes there is free food

    Cons

    -Management will stick you in a different where you will be as clueless as the customer to find a product
    -There's supposed to be at least 2 people in the electronics department especially if you work at a smaller Walmart where you have to deal with he photo center at the same time. It can be hectic having to run back and forth to customers for 2 departments by yourself
    -Like many other retail stores, customers will look down on you.

    Advice to Management

    It's nice to have coverage.

  10. great learning experience

    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    Distance from my home was great. I was able to commute quite quickly. The discounts and promotions were good if you needed items from the store

    Cons

    Zero opportunities to move up the ladder. No full-time work. Lazy co-workers but I cannot stay angry at them because the culture was horrendous and unwelcoming.
