1. How does the pay structure work? Yearly average?

2. How do deliveries work ie no touch? What hours do you normally deliver?

3. Overall how do you like it and what don’t you like?

Just curious.

Specifically company dedicated but Turtle is always welcome to join in. I had an ad sent to me from NFI looking for drivers for their Walmart account. Not fully interested but had my curiosity.

Crete WM 7077 DC as of 10/10/2021:

$15 for every store stop

Additional 2 CPM for each Freezer/Dairy/Deli loads.

Additional 8 CPM for each Meat and Produce loads

Mileage Pay:

1 - 50 Miles is 86 CPM

51 - 100 Miles is 78 CPM

101 - 200 Miles is 69 CPM

201 - 300 Miles is 68 CPM

301+ Miles is 58 CPM

Short Haul Pay is $25 (plus mileage) for 50 miles or less.

Short Haul Pay is $15 (plus mileage) for 51 - 100 miles

Weekend loads dispatched from 1500 on Friday to 1500 on Sunday is an additional 6 CPM.

These pay rates and bonuses are different for every DC account, so this is the only one I can speak on.


Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

I normally deliver to most stores 24/7. Exceptions are most Sam's Clubs that will normally be a four hour window of either 0400 to 0800 or 1900 to 2300. The Neighborhood Market Stores will also have a four hour delivery window.

Our contract stipulates a one hour or less unload at the store from the time we bump the dock.

We are required to observe the unloading and count. I will assist with down stacking, straps, bulkheads, pushing stuck pallet jacks, although none of that is required.

Most stores are simple backing maneuvers, but 5% are an occasional nightmare.

The worst part is the greater Denver metro area traffic. It's the wild west with usually no law enforcement. Every single day, I am zoomed past by multiple vehicles traveling in excess of 110 mph. Even the right two lanes of I-25, I-270, I-70, and I-76 aren't safe. I have multiple close calls each week for no reason except car drivers can't drive and don't care. It's worse around there than Chicago, and I would say second place behind Atlanta. Don't get me started on all the neverending construction projects...

We are expected to drive in the weather where many would park. High winds and chaining up? We do that here. Not many terminal rats last at this DC.


A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.


A strong wall-like structure placed at the front of a flatbed trailer (or on the rear of the tractor) used to protect the driver against shifting cargo during a front-end collision. May also refer to any separator within a dry or liquid trailer (also called a baffle for liquid trailers) used to partition the load.
