I'm in school right now and some people are already complaining about their potential assignments. I think one has a dedicated Walmart run between CA-NV-OR. And she doesn't want it. Not even on the truck with a mentor/trainer yet, and already being stupid.

I know the drill. I'll take what I can get, say please and thank you and do my best to deliver on time. And start over. I grew up with manners and a work ethic.

She doesn’t understand enough about how Walmart Dedicated operates to be complaining about it. Tough gig for a neophyte, but if she can handle it, lucrative.

There is a driver on the forum who does this same gig out of Sparks Walmart DC. Within that territory there are over 100 stores that she could deliver to and another 2 dozen backhauls. The combinations of multiple stops although they do repeat at times, are quite variable. Ask her what the complaint is.

I’ve been on a NE regional Walmart Account for several years...wouldn’t trade it for anything. Encourage your friends to join this forum if they really want the truth about this career.


Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.
