    You hold a giant grudge, how can you be home everyday, work 4 on and be off 3 and still make the same money as working for Walmart? It doesn't add up. Tell us the name of your employer so we can believe you.

    Realistically what does it matter. Wasnt a fit for him or walmart. He found another job.
    One thing I will say is when he was hired on, he was hired on at the DC went through the old process, met with a drivers committee, interviewed with gtm, HRM, and passed everything regarding safety drive test, pre trip etc in one shot. One mistake thank you have a nice day better luck next year.
    The old hiring system weeded out steering wheel holders and soupa twucka's. You weren't provided all the answers and week long training to pass. You actually had to posses the skills.

    Walmart isn’t the same for sure.. and for anyone that sits there and thinks that they only hire the best drivers out here you’re sadly mistaken because I’ve run across many company Walmart trucks that drive like absolute crap something you never used to see in the past… I have company Walmart trucks cut me off etc. among other things… Had a Walmart driver the other day out of Grantsville Utah obviously didn’t like the idea that I was passing him on a hill going up 84 towards Idaho shaking his head in disbelief because I was going around him obviously…. I couldn’t help but laugh..

    it’s a shame what has happened over there..also you never ever saw them advertising for drivers whatsoever in the past either like they do now..

    You are right, maybe not all DC's are as great as mine.

    This is true more now than ever. Can't hire or keep anybody worth a **** up in the Bermuda triangle. Seems more efficient for the eastern strategic missle command center (formerly the ROC) to ship us dumb rednecks from down south up 700+miles to cover their loads that they miss for 1 day then ship another 700+miles back down

    Also while paying us less because in corporate eyes we are not worth as much as them.
    Go figure
     
    truckdriver31 and 9691Guido Thank this.
