EmployeeWorked at walmart in Clarksville at the time of review.

What I like

The concept of the company is good. They just need to enforce it at all stores.

What I dislike

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.

Suggestions for improvement

Stop working the employees so hard. Alot of times we don't get our 15 minute breaks, if we do, we are behind on our work.

Company Culture

It is hard to judge wether it is the company or just our store.

Company Image

Everyone knows Walmart.

Work-Life Balance

Hard to schedule appointments because they are always changing your schedule.

Career Development

I have 20+ years of management experience. But I am over 50. They give supervisor and management Jobs to the young people.

Handicapped Accessibility

Follow all guidelines.

Overall compensation for your work

Raised starting wage, but didn't raise everyone else accordingly. There are new hires making more money than employees with time in service.

Inclusive / Diverse

We are expected to do a wide variety of things.

Environmental Friendliness

Most everyone is friendly.

Workplace Safety

Have good policies and procedures in place.

Teamwork

They say " Teamwork, Teamwork, Teamwork!" But no one helps anyone because they're too busy themselves.

Attitude towards older colleagues

In my department, the older people have to do the hard work, as well as pick up the slack of the lazy employees, because they know we will do it.

Support from management

Only gave 2 Stars because of 1 manager.

Office / Work Environment

Don't get equipment fixed. Don't care if you have to work 3 times as hard

Challenging Work

Expect alot of work for 1 individual. They even tell you that you are expected to do the work of 2 people.

Job Security

They don't like to do hiring.

Internal Communication

They make changes and don't tell anyone.

Gender Equality

Pretty good at this.

Freedom to work independently

You always work independently, but they put you down if you don't have it all done by a certain time.

Good Stopgap, But Don't Stay Too Long

Former EmployeeWorked at Wal-Mart Distribution Center in Wintersville, OH.

What I like

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.

What I dislike

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.

Suggestions for improvement

Well, for one, make sure every order filler has the proper pallet jack. Using pallet jacks for cold side when you're on dry side will crush your percentage.

Company Culture

Overrated, but not bad.

Company Image

After spending a few months here while getting back into my real field of work, I'd still support the company. I think the media far distorts the horrors associated with working at Wal Mart. It's not a place I'd want to stay, but it's far better than what I've worked at in the past.

Work-Life Balance

You can't complain about having four days off a week, and this doesn't count paid time off, vacation time, etc. Tell me another job you can make a decent income by working twelve times a month.

Career Development

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.

Handicapped Accessibility

Can't really comment on this one.

Overall compensation for your work

Don't get me wrong, the job paid well, but the physicality, plus aches and pains that go along with the job - it's a twelve-hour paid workout - still doesn't pay enough. Pay starts at roughly $20/hour at this location. Should be at least $24 due to the nature of the work - especially for those poor souls on cold side.

Inclusive / Diverse

I live in a predominantly white area, but you saw a good mixture.

Environmental Friendliness

Nothing insane was getting released into the atmosphere here.

Workplace Safety

Wal Mart is insane about safety. If you can't work safe you can't work there. They tell you this on Day One during onboarding.

Teamwork

The best pullers definitely helped get the job done, but they would slack on some days, hurting the newer employees in progression.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They follow the old, but real axiom - RESPECT!

Support from management

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

Office / Work Environment

Something that totally annoyed me was that they expected us to clean after the shift, which wouldn't have been bad if some days didn't last twelve hours. Not just that, they continually raised cleaning expecations. They're hiring far too many orderfillers here and they need a janitorial staff to do this job.

Challenging Work

The only way to hit 100% production is to break every safety violation in the book. You will need to coast your pallet jack, run and jog while hoping AP has their back turned, and even climb shelves to grab items because the company constantly loses pull hooks.

Job Security

You'll get caught and written up for doing something wrong without even knowing you did something wrong. Have one bad week orderfilling or if you get assigned trips constantly that expose your weaknesses and fail to hit 100% production, good luck. And those accountabilities add up fast. Accountabilities also change week to week, so be warned at this location.

Internal Communication

I loved how they gave us the numbers and volume early, but after that it was a crapshoot.

Gender Equality

As far as I know, I zero gender discrimination.

Freedom to work independently

Another reason why I was attracted to the job.

i loved the job hated the management

Work-Life Balance

they had no training for most jobs or very little

Job Security

they fired them as fast as they hired them

Internal Communication

Former C-Suite / LeadershipWorked in Executive leadership at Walmart in Bentonville, AR.

What I like

Sam Walton culture

What I dislike

Everything else

Suggestions for improvement

Take care of the tenured employees

Company Culture

They don’t care about Sam Walton’s culture anymore.

Company Image

Trashy

Work-Life Balance

Expects the Mgmt team to work 16-18 hours a day. 6-7 days a week. Even though the schedule does not reflect that.

Career Development

Offer free college, but work you so much you don’t have time to take anything. It’s terrible.

Handicapped Accessibility

They say they are. However items are broken, inaccessible, not enough for handicap people

Overall compensation for your work

They do not care

Inclusive / Diverse

Have become over the top Liberal.

Environmental Friendliness

They take so many short cuts that it affects our environment

Workplace Safety

They say they are. But then turn their back when safety isn’t followed. Ex store 5743 tle safety glasses in the Bay Area.

Teamwork

They want immediate results. Don’t allow time for teaching and fortering teamwork.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They are pushing out all tenured hourly and salaried employees. That way they can push over the newer associates and pay them a lot less.

Support from management

Out for themselves. Back stab at every opportunity.

Office / Work Environment

There is no tine to get office work completed. You have to take it home every day.

Job Security

There is no job security there anymore.

Internal Communication

Very poor communication within the store, districts, region, and division.

Gender Equality

They are all about promoting minorities even when they are not qualified. This way they make the numbers look good.

Freedom to work independently

Must follow all company processes. There is no freedom to work independently.
