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
Are you Robert? You sound like it. Your wife Jamie Hampton was born with a nose resembling a pig. Check out her nostrils while she snores.

Then question her what she is doing in St. James.

What area are you working in? Gloves are just a personal preference. Not needed...

You won't get hired on security unless they are in drastic need for someone but there are several reserve officers that are working in other areas that would transfer into that position if it came open.

I work at Ashley furniture in Receiving. We have to unload 150lb to 287lb dressers, tables, and headboards by hand. We are responsible for unloading 65 pieces and hour. It's very hard work and the pay is not that great. Not to many guys make it past 90 days. I've been there for about a year and a half. I got hired on with 42 guys and only 2 of us are left. I believe I could handle working at Walmart DC. I can also drive a clamp truck, reach truck, forklift, and pallet jack.

Walmart unloading is 245 an hour regular DA and 700 an hour cross dock... You have to average that for your entire shift. No down time for breaks....

Your best bet is hit your 6 months and transfer to DA or even shipping is better then that.

Of course it's hard work. The pay is great for this area and you don't need an education to work there. The transferring after six months is hard to do unless your willing to work weekends or nights. Even then the easier jobs are filled by people who have been there a long time. It took me over seven years to get into an easier area because I don't want to work anything but the day shift.

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.
Are you working in a retail goods DC? I'm a receiver in a grocery DC and its the exact opposite. Strict temperature control on all 3 docks. It never gets above 45 on the freezer dock, and stays close to 0 in the actual freezer. After reading some of these comments about the AC I think I'd prefer the cold.
I didn't catch where geographically the OP applied, but I was hired on off the streets around the same time this thread was made. The pay is good for a non-skilled job, but they do make it hard to transfer after your 6 mo. I'm sure the OP has found out by now how easy it is for them to pile on occurances and steps. 2 steps and you're stuck where you are.
