Cons: Long hours, Min wage.
I was an overnight stocker, I'd come in at 11pm and go up to the break room for a bit, we would have a pre-shift meeting at the front of the store wit the 25 overnighters, managers would state any deals for the week, what positions we all were and we would go to our departments. Go upstairs for breaks, and do the same thing until 7am.
Management was nice at first, they welcome you with open arms and help you out alot, atleast for the first couple of weeks. After about 2-3 weeks of being on the job and being fully trained it becomes obvious who the favorites to the managers are. They are given the easier jobs, get more leniancy, etc.I am sure this is not at every walmart as I have heard other positive stories.
Much like the management they were warm welcoming , I worked with a lot of older workers, I am 22 and was the 3rd youngest on the 25 person crew. Unfortunately the morale was at an all time low. Some of the older guys would joke about "living the dream" and complain daily about how much they work for how little they get paid. Only connected with 2-3 co workers because everyone was always tired and miserable.
Managing a social life while working overnights, and getting time off. I tried to book 3 days off for my brothers wedding around 2 months after I started working and it didn't get approved, I had to call in for 2 of the days because I was in the wedding party which resulted in me getting written up.
