    Congrats man. My uncle retired from Walmart after 30 years. I remember visiting him when I was a kid. That was when he had a COE freightshaker.

    Just wondering with no phone use, why work calls my husband all the time and he in return calls the dc numerous times daily. I read here calling the dc while driving will get you written up. Is that true?

    Well there is good news and bad news....

    First; the good:yes2557:....Wal Mart is doing a large hire of drivers through out the south east. They are hiring off the street so get to walmart.com and get those applications in if you want to drive as it may be a while before off street hiring is done again.

    Now the bad....they just announced a new set of rules. They are turning on the Qualcomm camera and will take a pic of you at random times and whenever you hit the brakes hard or take a turn fast...not just during accidents. GPS will alert them to suspicious driving practices( possible illegal turns, u turns and no truck roads) and speeding. If you are close (gps) to another driver who might scratch a trailer, even if you did not see it, they will charge you with not reporting it and will rank or fire you for not reporting it. :biggrin_25526: Big brother and your fellow drivers will be watching you:biggrin_25524: Record amount of drivers fired this year..more to come they announced with a smile. Any incident(ticket, scrape a trailer, not getting out of your truck properly) will trigger a request for 30 days of cell phone bills....or yes, you will be terminated. (has happened) :biggrin_2551:

    What the hell does that even mean? Does that apply to while you are driving at speed or when you are parked or trying to park? Might as well put some kind of safety manager in the truck with each driver while they're at it.
