    #1 I'm not going to play the Walmart zombie game with you. You guys know what you're doing. The number of distribution centers X the number of trucks take go to these everyday except for the one day a week you are by law to be closed for cleaning. I've not giving up my source but I think you know I'm spot on. Walmart may act as if the are "interested in us as drivers". But let's be honest. The majority of your DC locations have no truck parking. Some there isn't parking for miles. No matter if it is one pallet, it's still $50 and you will still keep a truck for 2 hours or better. I know you realize some of your DC locations only give 10 minutes from the appointment time now. Which means if you're in line, and there's a computer glitch or they are moving slow, you can be rejected. I'm not going to play the Walmart game with you and you act as if I'm the bad guy for calling Walmart out. Propaganda gets you nowhere.

    I will not ever deliver to your facilities.

    I believe you wasted too much of my time in the past.

    If I had it my way, I would have billed you for the truck time.

    i'll pick a walmart D/C over ANY union warehouse...period !
    $50 bucks to unload your wagon and you're out in under 4 hours.

    BTW free WiFi is only in the driver hot tub/ exercise/deli area :biggrin_25522::biggrin_25522::biggrin_25522:

    Is that the gold card or do you get it after you have delivered so many times and the punch card is completed?

    All reasons why I, as a company driver, did indeed flat refuse any live load/unload at any WalMart DC. If the company didn't like it, well....I was looking for a job when I found this one, ya?

    I would only do drop & hook freight for WalMart. Get in, grab an empty, and get the heck out as quickly as possible. Didn't even have to talk to the recieving monkey in the building, since the guard monkey handled all my paperwork. Of course, this was a few years back, and I'm sure WalMart has found some way to screw it up. They seem to hate efficiency.

    They hate to show you any respect as well. The receiving clerks treat you as if you just killed their dog. I know some of you just love the #### out of Walmart, but its true, they are one of the worst places to deal with.

    Very good response! Only you know that these whining steering wheel holders don't have the guts or ambition to help themselves. A Lot of em are ex cons working for 25-30cents a mile that can't get a decent job![/QUOTE]

    another gullible individual who think's all truck drivers are ex cons. what gives u the right to judge people? ur not God so u can't judge me nor ANYONE else. remember ur parents may have made u but God is the one that gave the ok for her to conceive. think about that before u start judging people
