Working at wal-mart good or bad?

I need to find me a part time job, and the wal-mart by my home is looking for a part time cashier. Really close to the house so I could walk, but I have heard that working at wal-mart is horrible. On top of that alot of the employees that I have run into there have been so rude. Our wal-mart is far from customer friendly. But its nothing I couldnt handle. It's just part time. So is it really that bad?

  • Are you going to apply online or go there and apply? I tried applying online and I didn't get any response and the one by me is ALWAYS hiring, so I would recommend going on site and doing the application. GL to you

  • It's a job. I worked at walmart when I was 17 (over 10 years ago) but I never had any issues at all. I loved it really. It all depends on your management and coworkers on whether you will like it or not.

  • I heard they have good benefits there. But yeah give it a shot, if you don't like it you can always give your 2 weeks notice. How great that its just walking distance, by my house the only thing thats walking distance is the damn college :/

  • yep...a job is a job these days. You work where you can find work. I would work at Wal-mart if I needed to but I won't let my teenagers work there (they've asked). The Wal-mart by my house is no place for kids. The employees seem to be so unhappy and it's like they're doing me a favor for letting me shop in they're store. I hope the one near you is better than the one by me.

  • My mom use to work for Wal-mart and loved it! I have heard both good and bad about working for Wal-mart. But that is true about most places. You can always quit if you hate it! Money is money! Go apply! What's the worst that can happen?

  • Any job is a good job. NO matter where you work there will be some sort of issue to make you unhappy anyway right? if you can get a job then take it!

  • It really sounds ideal- close by, part time. Give it a try, you don't have to stay for years if you hate it.
