    Are any, or all, Walmart drivers unionized?

    Thank you for your comments Extreme4x4. A clear , well stated and thought out post that gives insight into a topic that hasn't had a lot of light shed on it ( Wal-Mart drivers ) is something you don't have to apologize for.

    Reply ANYTIME disagree or agree , different opinion or not , knowledge is power and good ideas are the money used to buy success , so please share.

    Thanks for the literary advice. I didn't realize that 'Walmart' and 'Union' were an oxymoron.

    Thanks for your reply that is what a line haul driver told me and said he loves it. I use to work for a grocery chain in MD and when you started they gave you a book with all the direction it each store to include how to enter, exit and were to park.

    This is correct. However, what is missing is that they also pay you for every night you sleep in your truck.

    Thanks for the warm welcome folks. Feel free to ask any questions you have, there is nothing to hide. I read on other carriers from a point of interest. It can be sad to see the amount of uncertainty that some of the drivers have at some of these carriers. Nothing feels worse than wondering when the next shoe will fall. I have been there with previous employers, and it is an awful way to live.

    This is from March. They've went up since then to roughly $365 Billion ( that increase in a few months is roughly equal to what XPO paid for all of Con-way Inc )

    Please tell us what days of the weeks are the days you get off? Saturday and Sunday or more often then not are you working Saturday and Sunday and you have off days during the week when your wife is at work and children at school? Yes I know two Walmart drivers quite well. Don't get me wrong a number of years ago I actually applied and got through the first interview and was set up for the second when I realized I like being home on the weekend and I like a motel room and I really like being able to make the decision every six months if I want to be on a bid and get home every day for the next six months. That's another good question: how many driving positions does Walmart have where you are home every day? By the way I called the gal back and cancelled the second interview and told her "thanks but no thanks". Now if I could get a million guys to mail in their ballots I would be over joyed with my decision!
