Turtle and G-Town,

Are you hauling GM or GR?

So far I am pretty happy driving for Walmart. I have been hauling mostly GR and find it hard to get 2000 mile a week. The activity pay makes up the difference I guess. My pay started off slow and seems to grow every pay period. I'm not 100% happy with it....yet. I do like the equipment and people, I'm sure the money will come in time. JS.

Good to hear from you Jerry.

I’m primarily Grocery...split 50/50 between Remix (dry) and refer. Rarely have I delivered GM (twice in 7 yrs).


Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

The money will most definitely come as you gain skills and familiarity with the stores and routes.

I'm based out of a grocery DC, but my time is roughly split 50/50ish between that and GM.

In my limited experience I've found that grocery seems to keep me busier, with less wait time. With WM's online ordering and grocery curbside pickup, the food just keeps pouring in. That may change with the seasons.

Hang in there Jerry. You'll see.
