Q: What is it like working at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc?
Assistant Store Manager in Fresno:
"A cruel world."
Pros: I enjoy the diversity in the work place, with more then 260+ associates employed in the building, you come across some very awesome people.
Cons: Associates are treated like animals at some points by some managers and certain levels of business leaders, as if the person doesn't have a life and that you can treat them anyway you want because they need a paycheck.
When company programs are launched which feels like there's something new every month, people figure out that it doesn't work or cheat the system to never give it a chance to work. When the system doesn't work it takes usually a year or longer until a new system comes into place, but for the most part it always reverts back to the way it always was done.
Sales Associate in Forsyth:
Pros: That everyone is friendly and helps you out if you need any; Has a great happy atmosphere; management is nice.
Cons: I don't get enough hours so it makes me not want to work hard as I'd like and need to; makes me not want to be dependable; I need to move around (I can't stay in one department or do the same things all the time)... I'd like it If you would also have a better chance to move up in the company (age doesn't matter!) Give us younger people a chance! :)
