    You’re probably right. $65k would be phenomenal when you’re accustomed to busting your tail in a warehouse for $40k.

    I know they’re advertising 95k + now but that will probably remain stagnant for the next decade. WMT will start running DC to DC driverless trucks within a few years.

    If I fill the app out I'll only do 5 on 5 off.
    This way I get weekdays off and weekends off a couple times every 5 week period. Then I'm likely looking at about 6k each 5 week period . So I see average 6000 per every 5 weeks gross.
    every 10 weeks X 5 = 60000 add safety bonus that avg's a 100 per Month and 21 P T O days per year would = 2100 and you're realistically about 65k for 50weeks. 52 weeks 67k.
    Now ... take 6% pretax of 67k = 4020 into 401k 100% match and that is basically 71k for appx 180days worked.
    If to take 5% directed to Walmart stock purchase at a 15% discount your looking at 11% of 71k going to retirement about 11k per yr. With Walmart 401k match. This excludes what your stocks may or may not do.
    For me , if I go this route 5 yrs would be all . Age 66 I'd call it a day .
    If Walmart stock climbed by by just 15% and I cashed in all I had upon retirement at 66 ... for me I'd be collecting my 2191.00 a month SS and with the 40k I already have in 401k I'd be looking at a retirement savings of appx 160k.
    If it was really good at Walmart enough to hang to 70 ... SS would be 2967.00 monthly , and the retirement could easily be 210k .
    I should seriously give thought to Walmart ... considering the only hangup I have is slip seating.
    My problem is at Pohl ... the truck goes home with me , if I'm out medical leave for 5 weeks it sits at home with me. And I'm happy where I'm at. However , building a decent retirement at Pohl is not going to be easy no 401k match . All I can do is self contribute . :(

    You need to up your 401k contributions. $160k- $210k wont give you much income invested in a conservative account. Its better than no planning, but if in high risk investments and you lose it, theres no way to earn it back. Your too old to work. Keep working that pencil. Its going to get rough the next year or two or three.

    Its pretty obvious they have lowered their driver standards, which is an industry wide problem, that is not exclusive to Wally World only...

    DC to DC? That’s like what, .0000001% of what WM drivers do now. Driverless trucks are taking over…..

    Walmart says right in their ads “$105-110,000 w2”. If they’re adding “W2” then that means it’s straight up pay and doesn’t include any of the other benefits.

    There have been Walmart drivers on these forums post pictures of their annual pay and it has been up in 6 figures even before the pay raises.

    Of course they are referring to before deduction pay. You cannot talk about after deductions pay because every individual is going to be different.

    I don't know why so many people don't get that. Every advertised income is gross. Every w2 worker will have deductions, some more than others.

    Its like $45 they pay you to take your 10 hr break.

    I helped Walmart in Cheyenne over the holidays last year with Crete and I had a lot of fun. I didn't mind delivering to those stores. Yes parking was super easy. I ate better because I was able to park closer to better food. It wasn't bad at all.

    Some of the Walmart DC are annoying. They put their trailers way too close together.
