    I see where you would think that, but that is most definitely not the case. Part of the logistics of it all and quite simply the number of loads, etc. Most of the outside carriers are grocery DC contract haulers, the few dedicated at the GM facilities are just there to take over flow. The private fleet isn't going anywhere in our life time.

    Hi, I am new here, but would like to find out an odd question... If anyone here works for Walmart (in contact with the drivers), or is a driver for Walmart,,, have you ever known a store associate from their cell phone to call a driver on their cell phone after the driver has already left the store? I wouldn't know why an associate would have a drivers cell number anyway. I work for a grocery store and if we have an issue, we call the companies transportation office.

    Store associates do not have drivers cell phone numbers. The store doesn't even know who is assigned to make the deliveries. There are drivers who have relatives working in stores. The only way I can see the above situation taking place is if the store associate is related to the driver who recently departed from the store. As with your place if the store has an issue they contact the transportation office.

    His former employers have up to 30 days to respond to his employment verification request. I know this doesn't answer your question, but that is what usually takes to longest when doing background checks.

    As a Walmart private fleet driver that also participates in the store ambassador program I can tell you that the stores I represent have my private cell phone number. Store associates can call me 24/7/365 if they have DC or private fleet related comments,questions,concearns or issues. Of course they may get my voice mail but I do return every call. If an issue is serious I can usually be routed towards that store on my next move.

    Some store ambassadors only want calls from their designated contacts which usually are members of the management team. I want to hear from any associates that have comments,questions,issues or concearns with private fleet operations. The mission of the ambassador program is to establish a "good neighbor" relationship between the distribution centers and the stores they service. Having input from everyone from greeters to the manager is valuable to me as an ambassador and lets the stores know we are listening.

    I would like to ask, how many times a month do you call in to your DC? My H calls his DC an average of 30-40 times a month. Does this sound normal? Do you call the 1-800 DC # to check messages on your store ambassador VM #? (From your business cards)

    This very issue has come up on another message board and because I think I know where your headed we should go PM.

    My reason for becoming a member here is to answer questions and help make sure people are putting out honest information about the private fleet. When this type of issue comes up I can only give someone information as it pertains to me and how I conduct myself while representing Walmart and the private fleet.
