Walmart journey, take 2

Does Wal-Mart hire newbies right out of CDL school? I've worked for them for 12 years and don't really want to lose all that time with the company.

No, they require a minimum of 30 months of tractor/trailer experience within the previous 48 months.

They have started something like a "dock to driver" program in select areas, where they take WM associates from the supply chain (warehouse/DC) and train them in an in-house setting for their CDL. Outside schools won't be accepted. I hear it's a very selective process, and haven't heard anything new on this program in months.

Is that generally the same with UPS, USPS, FedEx? You have to work from the dock first?

Also, the truck driving school I'm going to start next month uses trucks with automatic transmissions. Are most trucks now automatics?

I hope this is not an inappropriate question here as my first post. Are these any companies to avoid working for?
