Three-day work week, paid workout, able to wear whatever I want, water constantly available, huge safety measures. Good pay for those looking to enter the workforce but not the greatest pay.

Employees don't like

LIMITS ON OVERTIME... WHY YOU HAVE HIRED A LOT OF YOUNG EMPLOYEES AND SOME CALL OUT ... YOU HAVE EMPLOYEES WITH WHO WANT TO STEP IN LIKE MYSELF AND WORK BUT NOT ALLOWED ANYTHING OVER 40 HOURS THAT PUT A STRAIN ON THE SHIFT... PLEASE CORRECT THIS PLEASSSSSEEEEE!!!!! BENTONVILLE ARKANSAS....
They have to order better pallet jacks at this location. Communication is horrific and the lift drivers are in a constant struggle with the orderfillers trying to hit production. They've started using action item boards which I found more of a joke than anything else.
Most management. We don't even trust going to our H R person because she gossips. And this store does not follow the company morals and values.
After being here for 7 months. Everything. Im pretty much the skid mark in this corporations whity tidies.
Too much favoritism, and discrimination against older male employees.

Best and worst factors

Best rated: Handicapped Accessibility

4.0

The best rated factor of Walmart is Handicapped Accessibility with 4.0 points (based on 712 reviews).


They say they are. However items are broken, inaccessible, not enough for handicap people
1
We do have electric wheel chair shopping carts for customers but sometimes they are in repair or need servicing and there are not enough of them for every customer. In addition, we have had employees in a wheelchair to work as a greeter, but i heard that in the future Walmart will be eliminating that position and replace the job with a person who needs to be able to lift boxes to help customers with cary outs to their vehicles.

This place is prim parking for the handy caped and tend to run out of wheel chairs because there are people who decide they don’t want to walk around the store and make actual handy caped people wait and yell and complain as loud as they want till they get one.
5
From ramp to alot of riding carts for the disabled even started pick up so all you have to do is pull in a pick up spot and call and someone will bring you your items
4
They have handicap toilets and have scooters which is great but a lot of times the scooters die because they were not charged.

Worst rated: Support from management

3.2

The worst rated factor of Walmart is Support from management with 3.2 points (based on 1,194 reviews).


Management is a joke. Tell them our equipment is busted and it takes them weeks. Almost months to fix our stuff. Low on carts. They even said we are short 600 carts at our store. And we can barely keep up. Other stores around us have brand new mules to push carts and loads sitting outside the bays. And we cant even get anythi g new.

they sucked no support

Could've been better, but it could've been far worse.

So, the department manager and the Assistant Store Manager I deal with are very responsive, helpful, and fun to work with. The other parts of the store seem stressed, overworked, and seem bitter about being involved in any sort of team work outside of their respective sections. Support from management outside of your department will be iffy at best, and expect to be waiting 20 minutes for a manager to assist you with any type of void or refund if ...

Only gave 2 Stars because of 1 manager.

Career Development

Career Development rating

3.5

Career Development is rated with an average of 3.5 points (based on 825 reviews).


I honestly don't know why people are putting one stars down. They'll help you pay for school and continue your education in the supply chain field and some prestigious universities. Everyone I've seen promoted were done so in house. Perhaps it's just this location.

I have 20+ years of management experience. But I am over 50. They give supervisor and management Jobs to the young people.
2
Offer free college, but work you so much you don’t have time to take anything. It’s terrible.
1
Age is a factor in this area I believe

I walked in there with the dream of making a career out of that place and working there for decades, but after being told I was a good for nothing after nine years, it was time to move on.
