Walmart is possibly the worst place there is to work, at least inside. Being a customer is bad enough. It's dirty, with dreary lighting and a constant draft. I've worked in multiple Wal-marts, and this is a universal atmosphere. We're underpayed, overworked, and treated like garbage from employers and customers alike. I'm an art major and that place sucks all creativity all the time. I get injured often, small injuries, like cuts and bruises. When it happens there's no band-aids. We have to provide our own band-aides! Shifts are nine hours, and we only get three strikes for being late before being fired. Just me, don't work here unless you're desperate. It is down the street from my school, though, so I save a lot on gas.

For 10 years of retail/food experience, Walmart is the place to work. Like no other company, the pay is really good! My hours are always guaranteed when I was part-time and becoming full-time was really easy. The management team always appreciate us by bringing in treats such as pizza, barbecue and ice cream. Every Friday is donuts day and through the store is 10 percent off except for grocery which that should change in my opinion. What I feel like they need to improve is needing more cashiers. I came from two different stores and they have all their registers open. The current store I work in needs to demonstrate what my old stores did. Leaving everyone doing self checkouts not only backs everybody up but it damages our shrink. Self checkout was a semi good idea for a small section but don't attempt to make the whole front end a self check out. Overall, Walmart has been more supportive, compensation is amazing, benefits can not beat, and the workplace culture is excellent.
I worked for Wal-Mart for almost one year before heading off to college. The job itself was fairly easy to get. I applied, interviewed and was hired. I was paid a little more than minimum wage so that was a positive. I was also able to get a set schedule that I liked, which is retail its always changing. I had the potential to be promoted but since I knew I was moving I told them that I didn't think it would be fair to the company. When I told the company I was leaving, they told me that I could apply to other potential Wal-Marts in the area I was moving. Solid company to work for!
