    So..new drivers coming on at wal mart should expect to PAY approximately 10 to 20K to work for them, as compared to the compensation opportunities afforded to a more tenured driver?

    Just plug in driver pay on this or other search engines...some non union ltl pay with and above us. Private fleets are paying over 52 cents a mile. Before you brag about our pay, check out the changes coming in August....

    So go work there. We kept hearing wait to March. No more layover, no more assigned trucks, plague, pestilence, armeggeddon:eek:

    No one's pay has been cut. We are bidding on assigned trucks, layover has not changed.....

    So now we are getting the "wait until July/August":rolleyes:

    Is this the absolute top pay? Who knows? Personally I don't care.

    100k+ a year for working 240 days a year, home every week for 2 or 3 days is a pretty #### good job. Hell even the new guys should be able to pull 85k.

    Hey but like I said if you see a pot of gold over that fence jump sparky. Your life, your call. Maybe you will find something you like and not be miserable forever.

    You are bidding on days out, if there is not an opening for another truck on the day out you bid, you must forfeit truck or the bid...change day out may lose your truck. At the top of the board you guys are not having any problem...drop back to 40th position, you got problems. Many are being forced in to program runs where you share tractors with other drivers and some will be forced in to extra and flex boards and god only knows what day they get out..forget weekends. That can blow your 85k theory...plus not all terminals are not so lucky on ADP...run LA, Atlanta, etc..you ADP drops compared to Searcy, Kansa, etc.
    Jumping the fence?? Jump out of that truck sparky and walk inside to the break room, lot outside the office and the number one question is what are you going to do or who have you signed up with? Tapping on that keyboard will not help you to see what the majority of drivers are doing. While you are at it...count the newbies...count the trucks that are being turned in and not replaced...this fine young man is not waiting round to be the last one to start looking for another place to bail. This job is now like trucking was in the 80's, better keep your ear to the wind...you don't know which way it is blowing.

    Bye

    I know a lot of folks are leaving. Wish them well. Will not change the facts. Re-alignments have been around before us. Days have always changed. Hell 20 years ago they say no store would take a delivery on the weekend. Now we run 24/7.

    I am here until the checks bounce. Then I will be somewhere else. It is not a big deal.
