    At Grantsville UT DC a driver said he made $87k and he stated in February he also said another driver that he started with made $115k but he worked every extra day he could.
    This was for last year, before the raise.

    For me it's between Walmart and cryo.

    Yep. It's called breach of trust. No amount of superglue or Gorilla tape can fix it back.
    When it's gone, it's gone. And you are gone too.

    Other than rotating schedule, 5-2/5-3 i was referring to 5 day assigned tractor, took me 7 years. Yes I was the designated truck detailer, cleaner, write up anything other 2 guys broke on a program after year one, weekends come around approximately every 7-8 weeks then have them for next three weeks then nothing again.

    Does anyone know if Walmart started giving drivers their own phone like they do store workers?

    I also work for Estes and have a bid lay down run 3/2, off Friday Saturday or Saturday Sunday revolving, off all holidays. I got myself into this same situation back in September, deciding wether to stay here or go to WM. My run takes 7.5-8 hours to complete, no BS with safety or management and gross a bit over 90k and for what little hours I put in compared to most drivers it was too good to walk away from, I have my own tractor that rarely ever gets used by anyone else, and it’s not even a year old. I just was bored and wanted to do something different and possibly get one of those 5 on 5 off schedules but in the end wasn’t willing to ruin my family life in the process of trying to obtain that. My dad put in a bunch of years at WM when I was a kid / teenager and got to see them in their glory days, I imagine I would be disappointed to see what it is now compared to the late 90’s early 2000’s. So I’m gonna keep trucking with the big Easy for now, they’re good to me, I got 7 years in now.

    I've not seen nor heard of WM drivers getting issued a phone.

    Pretty similar to the spot I'm in. I ran linehaul for Big E for 11+ years and last year I switched to p&d, guess I just wanted to do something different. I put in my request to go back to line haul a few months ago and while I was waiting for it walmart called. Once I get my line haul seniority back I'd be able to go back on my the lay down run I was on. (3/2 around $90k).
    JadeLove Thanks this.

    Any Estes driver here that transferred from a terminal to another terminal? I have a question regarding if the time frame they give you to transfer, comes out from your vacation? Also if anyone know is San Antonio is considered east for Estes?( it might be a dumb question bus since Texas is in the middle of the country we’re not so sure wether if it’s considered Estes west or East?also how much is the pay for a flex team out of San Antonio?
