    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When I first started working at the distribution center there were wonderful perks such as 1-2 times a month they would reward us with meals on our breaks due to being one of the top producing shifts in the company, and various ways we could earn them.
    Management was flexible working with employees who are ill or need to use a day for volunteered time off and would have a couple spots open a day for employees to use.
    Some days you get off at an earlier time because the varying freight going out that night, being able to spend more time with your family and the work taking less of a toll on your muscles.

    Cons

    Over the last six month all meal's the team has been told it would receive due to productivity have been swept under the table and not given out as promised.

    Less associates that there used to be, for example 10 have left or been terminated and 1 has been hired. Leading to later nights occasionally becoming 12+ hour shifts.

    Management plays favorites with associates, a select few are given easier jobs or get selected to leave early or get first opportunity to VTO.

    The "no fault" attendance policy, they do not accept doctors notes. If you have heath problems you will find yourself close to being terminated quickly, even if you have a doctor note.

    Moral is at an all time low at the time this was written, leading to the teams overall productivity dropping leading to a lot more work overall.

    Two short breaks (20 and 15 mins) takes a toll on your body on long nights. Have had to work for 5+ hours with no break.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to rework its attendance policy and make VTO time available for all associates. Possibly giving associates with higher productivity priority or making it open to all evenly.

    If managers would consider their associates like they used to a year ago moral would come back up and employees would feel appreciated again.

    Hiring employees so we are staffed like we used to be would increase moral.

    More benefits that award associates who have higher production would improve moral and help give more incentive of going above and beyond.
