    I think the whole food thing was just a way of Amazon is pulling Walmart's chain and making them panic. The only way they can compete with Amazon is to push everything to WalMart.com and shut down stores. Walmart has created a panic to have an excuse to cut cost in a major way and drive the stock up...then the Waltons and other company officials sell their stock long.

    That theory doesn't fly anymore. There are 3rd party carriers paying their drivers over 70k a year with bennies not to mention new truck expenses.

    Just to bring in temp. dedicated it's 880 a day whether they do anything or not with a 3 day guarantee. It's not cheap.

    You can't find anyone to drive for you anymore even if you pay decent in a larger city area.

    I don't know what is true, But I start orientation in Brookhaven,Ms 10/16. And I won't be alone. Everyone I spoke to at the DC during the interview process were all positive. Especially about staying busy

    Clearly stating that a retail store chain does not need to have their own trucks
