    DC 6021 6026 7033 6029 6031(CA AZ UT) Starting this week CDT's driver mentors will be conducting assessments on all drivers starting from the top to the bottom. Its a pre trip drive backing and a post trip. It is suppose to take 1.5 hr to complete they say it is not a pass or fail. To my fellow Walmart drivers what is your opinion on this? Are they doing this to the whole fleet?

    Our safety department is watching us very closely, as I was coming into the gate today they where parked in their white safety cars watching us back and doing our post trips. Is this happing at your DC's?

    Safety must be running out of things to do. Their creativity is in high gear these days.

    I went in the DC in Brookhaven, Ms with an outside carrier to drop and hook. Safety car followed me around. I was so nervous watching them that I was hit by falling prices.

    @snowman_w900 came in to the DC in Cullman, Alabama. He was able to return his CR England 2019 Freightliner Cascadia for a full refund. They were suspicious at first but he told them he ordered it site to store and forgot his receipt.

    @Humblepie picked up a backhaul from a DC in Texas. He showed the shipping clerk a comcheck where Kroger had paid him more for the same load so WalMart price matched.

    I took a mixed load to the Pageland South Carolina dc. I had a load of whole milk, Clorox, ammonia, and pickled eggs. I got there and several pallets were turned over. I was super worried about them refusing the load. The dock supervisor came and said it would be fine. They will just roll back the prices. He said their customers weren’t too picky. upload_2019-6-12_7-39-59.jpeg

    The Walmart DC centers are so easy to deal with too. They really didn't ask questions, just said "ok, no problem sir. Park it out back between the group of Celadon and USA Transportation trucks that were returned. Then come to the customer service desk for a full refund of the truck."

    I even showed them my receipt for $327 for fuel, $67 receipt for my meal at Chez Wendy's, and they reimbursed me for those items as well as a courtesy. Said they apologize the C.R. England truck didnt meet my expectations and they gladly take care of that for me and give me a full unconditional refund.

    Hey, bottom line. Folks can say what they want about Walmart.....they have treated me well on this issue.

    Hey, that's Darlene from the Washington Courthouse, OH location Walmart DC.

    She got rid of that Go Go Traveler Elite 4, and leased purchased a new scooter through Walmart Capital Solutions. She got a new Hyster and she's definitely the envy of her coworkers and neighbors
