    Of all the WMT drivers I have spoke with in the past three weeks. 9 are ready to call it quits. And 5 are going to stick it out. As for the happy camper. I'm sure he was glad he got of the truck whe he was made aware of all of the changes.

    I'm almost embarrassed to ask what is the attraction to come to Walmart any more?

    There really isn't any more... Sam Walton would be rolling over in his grave to see what has happened to his company

    Reputation. Those who aren't following forums like these, think WM is The Holy Grail because their uncle told them so a decade back. Ya gotta keep up on current events or you'll end up taking it in the shorts!

    Eh still better pay than 75% of the industry. Still don't touch freight.

    Although the "sudden acceleration detected" is going to push me right over the dam edge. How the heck do we spend three years developing this thing and have crap like that, and mandatory ETDs on every message.

    Ya, the "sudden acceleration detected" thing is questionable at best and needs to be fixed.

    Only good thing might be guys having stability control triggered events at certain DC yards might get them to repave lot???? I know wishful thinking

    I just get annoyed, and it is creating a paper trail for scumbag lawyers to follow. A paper trail of a known flaw, but good luck defending that in front of a jury.

    How about the claims run guys? 10 or more times a day they have to do an ETD. And theirs doesn't matter being an exception run. But they still have to do it.

    That is a major flaw whoever designed this overlooked. And whoever decided to stay with Navigo needs flogged :mad:
