It's a good job but they are pretty hard on people. The littlest things you get in trouble for. But it is one of the better jobs for our area anyway

Good luck! Getting in with their new "GRS" system they started utilizing it will be difficult to be hired straight in.... If your not a current WM employee looking for a field to regional transfer. Cause going from 8.50 per hour to around 17 ish for starters, is a big enticement for current store associates!
BUT, wish you luck!

If you get hired as an order filler it's hard work. You through cases all day. Last I knew I believe caselot "order fillers" rate is around 460 cases a hour that you have to label and throw. You won't be using power equipment, just go from pallet to pallet along the conveyor throwing boxes. Good news is after 6 months you can transfer to an easier department if a position is available. But for the first 6 months expect hard hard work. The pay is good and the benefits are ok.

And you can't through several boxes on at a time. That's a step.

In this heat and the work they do yeah I'm sure she's complaining some. It's not enough rest time. Several people drop from heat strokes there every year. If you don't work there and know the conditions and stress then don't even try to come down on a person that does work there.

The only AC in the building is in the break rooms, managers offices and front offices. If you work in the warehouse you get hot. Winter ain't bad, they do have heaters.

Yes I know it gets really hot in there during the summer. Totally understand! But where are you going to make good money around here? And to those who want to complain... Then quit. Just like gas prices, not much you can do about them. There are others out there who need jobs that will give their right arm to work at the dc. Just be thankful you have a job.

Read my first post. I said it's a good job, better one for the area but that they are just hard on people. It's not easy by no means but money is money. It helps if your younger also. Can withstand the labor a little better.

I currently work at Walmart Distribution as a DA Unloader. Every job in the building is demanding in their own ways. Orderfilling is one of the more physically demanding departments. At my DC the hourly rate for cases for an orderfiller is 700 an hour. The factory is not air conditioned so its hot in the summers and cold in the winters. Breakrooms are air conditioned though. I would say that it is an okay job to have. The pay is good, but you will earn every penny. You will just have to be careful how you treat your body when you work there. It can take it's toll over time. Especially as an orderfiller
