    I'm looking at the cash. Man on the phone interview said $85 first year. After they offered me the job I was told $90 and a 25 year veteran said I could do $95 thousand easy. I'm no rookie. Been driving over 25 years. Half as owner and the other half as a company driver. But if they are going to pay as they say, I an follow whatever rule they may have. Everyone I've met has been cheerful and friendly. As though is a place for my last job and a place to succeed.

    Walmart buys new trailers from Hyundai. Manufactured in Tijuana Mexico. They come across the border empty , the go to a ltl freight company like Yellow, fed-ex freight. They load their freight for the east coast. They pay Walmart for use of trailer. Walmart makes money getting new trailer delivered to DC on east coast, instead of paying someone to pull it empty.

    Walmart stock can no longer be considered a growth stock. The company’s too big. It’s a large cap stock. You buy them for the dividend and the expectation the price will remain stable, which it has, actually increasing slowly over the past Months.

    Forget Sam Walton that culture at Wal-Mart is dead. Personally I don't ever go to Wal-Mart I don't like there stores I don't like them as a company I don't shop there as a consumer never have never will, sorry there private fleet has gone down the crapper, but it's not just Wal-Mart it's everywhere 2008 marked the time and start of the downward spiral for everything.
