    Expect to work hard by maintaining high production with incentives for those who produce more.

    Pros

    I work at a Distribution Center as an order filler. The technology for their logistical system is very efficient. Lower-level management is very accessible. Camaraderie amongst co-workers is excellent. Pay is better than at the stores. Workplace safety is constantly emphasized. There's a weekend shift that is 33 hours per week and pays more hourly.

    Cons

    The health insurance package is very cheap and only covers physicals. There is a $2500 deductible for the most basic coverage of a single person with no children. The work is very difficult in an environment that is refrigerated at various degrees depending on the product. DCs for general goods has no central heat and air. It's very difficult at first to make production. Damages to products are likely to occur and has the potential of getting the employee written up. Order fillers must endure the hard labor for hours into the day. You'll get your workout. Expect to go home very tired when the shift is over. Must pass endurance test to move on in the hiring process.

    Advice to Management

    Please expand the working place. Congestion with lift drivers and order fillers makes it more difficult to reach production.

    Pros

    Room for advancement. No restrictions on education-level for management program like Target did. Easy to work around schedule most times (at entry-level). Hours are pretty regular (at entry level). As far as the "Walmart Cult" goes, I was never a part of it but was still able to advance in the company through honest effort. There did seem to be people that got much more into the whole idea though, but that had no effect on their own advancement that I could see.

    Cons

    Beginning wages are pretty poor but increase exponentially as you head to management positions. Store-level management is often overworked but policies have recently changed. Rarely is anyone fired or let go at entry-level, leading to poor work ethic, but management changes at the drop of a hat. Benefits are terrible in most store level positions, higher than that I do not know. Employee retention does not seem to be of any importance. Corporate-level demands must be met by the store-level despite any conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Better feedback needs to happen between the corporate-level and store-level. The lack of proper communication leads to the constant rotation of managers and a lack of any true stability.
