Pros: reputable company, steady work, stable job conditions
Cons: low wage, very low chance for advancement, uneducated and unethical management
Walmart is an interesting work environment. Through the hiring and training phases, it seems like a great place to work (for minimum wage that is). It is only after one starts to look to further themself in the company that the problems start.
The managers generally are only self serving and favouritism is rampant. Despite being over qulaified for – more... positions, I was always denied possibilities for advancement due to one small issue. The issue was always different and it was never brought up before they gave me the results of the interview.
I would never recommend anyone work there, unless its just a desperation job. Or if you are will to be a massive brown nose you might be ok. I notice several employees who rise above the rest of the associates due to their relationships with management. – less
