    I've realized that this is just about as fruitful as arguing politics, i wish all you drivers all the best and stay safe for which ever company you go with, if you see me in the drivers room say hi. I'm out, just not that important to me.
    06driver Thanks this.

    I've spoken with senior walmart drivers and they have stated...bentonville doesnt care about drivers anymore...will there always be changes?..of course but Wal-Mart isn't changing for the better, at least not for their workers...mgt is extremly self centered...what they fail to realize...if you treat your workers right and pay them accordingly ans treat customers right, eveyone makes more $$$...obviously Wal-Mart corporate hasn't gotten that's frankly Bentonville is the problem..

    None of those list 4-5 weeks vacation the first year. But hey I am with @mike3fan it is not worth trying to talk over the whiners, and folks that do not even work here discussing how horrible drivers are treated.

    None of them have answered the basic question. If it is so terrible what the hell are you doing here?

    Never will get a cognizant answer. They are incapable of it. I guarantee every job they have ever worked at has screwed them. Everyone is just screwing them. Or maybe it is just them?

    Food for thought.

    Hey @TransplantBadger you were right.

    See ya.
    WallyWife Thanks this.

    I don't think AP offers that much vacation. But they do offer more than 70k. However GE and COS Both offer abt 105k first year with great vac/personal days.

    There are several 80k plus per year truck driving jobs. Some have more perks than others. And some are cutting back on things. I've seen a lot of companies go from regular paid vac time. To PTO in the past two years. And the PTO is crappy compared to vac time. Because at some outfits it's use or loose. Unlike regular vac time that could be banked by the worker.

    Please name one great truck driving job. Private or third party carrier. And I will give you 10k in cash!!!

    A company with great equipment
    A company with great pay
    A company with no micro management
    A company with an excellent safty record
    A company with no B/S policies
    A company that doesn't show favoritism
    A company with no jerk off losers that knew the right person to get a job in dispatch.
    A company where rumors aren't started.
    A company with no back staking Co workers
    A company with all smiling faces

    Realistically some ppl act like the company cares so much about them. And that it's all peaches and cream. In the past 10 years I have seen so many ppl fire over complete b/s or made up crap. And companies that have sold out or when out of biz. In today's economic climate it's best to work and keep your mouth closed. Save your money, get out of debt, and be prepared for the worst.

    Companies don't care about employees as they did in the past. Workers are replaceable. That's how CEO's, CFO's, COO's and anyone else in upper management looks at it now a days.

    A buddy of mine once told me bridgestone/firestone was the best driving job around. After he explained all the things they would fire one for. I said wow and how was this supposed to be so great if they will fire one for farting too loud in the trk? Yea the pay was good but a lot came with that. He later got laid-off after the company closed the warehouse that he ran out of. Then he had to take a job otr making 55k a year. Man did he hate that!!!

    But once again firestone didn't offer him a chance to move. They didn't even tell him good bye. Because they didn't care. So for what all of the what I call 100% company guys there are no more 30 year jobs with all kind of perks anymore. So stop cheerleading because your company won't remember you when you think it would matter!!!
