    Drop, hook, and drive at Walmart. No chip stacking allowed...

    I do not work for Wal-Mart. That being said, conversations with ex coworkers that do work there say the work and pay are decent. Just do not expect to get home.Most are out for the week. And as a new guy, most likely not the weekends. Holidays if it happens to fall on your day off. That is what I have been told. For your sake, hopefully I am misinformed

    Truck driving jobs suck, they always did but now the pay is no longer commensurate with the hardship.

    I've been with Walmart for 3 yrs prior to that I drove for UPS freight. I don't know anything about frito lay but I will tell you about Walmart. There are multiple schedules to choose from they are called programs. you will have to work the weekend and you get extra mileage pay. I'm on a 5 on 5 off program. Driving for Walmart the only thing you will do is drive, roll the landing gear down and disconnect the airlines. At our larger D.C's we don't even pump fuel someone does it for us. We get payed for everything. We get payed for arriving to any location we then get payed for hooking to a trailer at that location live load pay if we live load At a vendor. We also get payed to take our 10 hour break. Walmart is the safest fleet in the country. The hiring process is very long. You will be rewarded with the best driving job there is. Guys who work a regular 5 day work week and off 2 are making over 100k a year. There is no pressure there is no such thing as a hot load over here. You are your own boss of driving the truck.

    Heard you guys are getting audio and video cameras even facing you. Don't sound like the good place it use to be.
