    its not all about the money. theres so much to learn about how to get into stores with out hitting stuff. the money will follow you as you do a good job. most likely you will start out as a extra driver. slip seating trucks. maybe once a week. maybe 3 times a week. not to many make the money on extra. some pull it off. but the biggest question is. what dc area. every dc transportation office does stuff different

    your insurance is better at the union tho. you can earn 25 days off a year. your 401k is vested from day one. you can get good safety bonus every quarter. if you dont hit nothing. could be around 4k. tx runs good from what i here. i made 84k my first year. you will be your check. run hard make $$$. i gave up those days when i came over here. i like the way i work. otr sleeper to 4 days sleeper here is the same. we have apu tripac. home full 2 days. i got home monday at 9:30pm. off tue and wed. i dont like working my full 14 on my go home day unless i work 5.5 days. im resting for the rush season. but in all the health insurance is the only down side to wm

    If you’re making $80k at a Union gig with Union benefits in 9 months and don’t absolutely hate your job, I’d stay put. Just my honest opinion

    I would say that is true, but if your going to drive a truck and "retire". I would most defiantly go to wal-mart for the 401k and stock. The pension just doesn't seem like it's going to be there unless the government does some kind of buy out. its either 2025 the plan will be insolvent... or so they say. i tried to go back to the union and its just way to much bs.
