“I drove for Wal-Mart for 12 years. Decided I wanted to retire. Didn't take long before I decided retirement was not for me. Wal-Mart was good to drivers and fair. The equipment was excellent and well maintained.” Indeed
“Walmart Transportation is overall a great place to work. The salary and the benefits are just about the best you're going to find pulling dry vans. You must live within 250 miles of the D.C. you're applying to. For a single person, this is an excellent job. When you start you will be working 5 days on and 2 days off in most cases. You will not have an assigned tractor, but they try to keep you in the same tractor for 5 days when possible. You will be working weekends. After you've been there several months you can bid on a program (5/2-5/3, 6/3, or a schedule with an assigned tractor) but someone will be driving your truck when you are at home. As far as the work goes its's pretty straight forward. You touch nothing in the trailer. Pick up a loaded trailer, take it to the store, drop and hook, deadhead back to D.C. There are times when you will pick up backhauls or pallets too. This is a great place to hire on when you are young (if you have enough experience and a clean driving record) get yourself established and settled into a consistent schedule, and retire from here. My personal experience was that the job was too hard on my family life, but that had nothing to do with Walmart.” Indeed
“By far the best driving job ever they treat you like a person not like a number on a truck and they work with you in the best way they can and one plus thing is the uniforms look great.” Indeed
