It’s in Bolingbrook. A recruiter from Walmart has contacted me multiple times for a regional position out of there.

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.

Yep, had USN'S looking @ Washington Courthouse (Ohio) this morning before my driver dude left, haha!

Seems like we missed the 03/21 event... when they opened. Only hired 125. Dang. :(

We (I?) Ignored/skimmed emails. None lately.

Walmart's website says they are hiring in Washington Courthouse, with an $8k sign on bonus too.

Bolingbrook is hiring too.

With Walmart really trying to expand the private fleet now, getting hired on is easier than ever. They are also doing away with some things that have kept potential drivers away, such as slip seating and the stupid phone policy.

I swear I'm not trying to sound like a recruiter haha.

I'd jump on it if I didn't have to drive my Virginia "home area" of the middle east coast. I just hate driving the east coast, hence I'm out here in Wyoming.

Yeah you would definitely get a lot of coastal runs. I occasionally get sent down to Sutherland, VA to help out the DC there, and usually can't wait to get back up here in the sticks.

This recruiter actually reached to me on LinkedIn. I told her I couldn’t do regional but if they have anything that gets me home everyday I’d be interested. I’d think they’d have something in this area.

But I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a wmpf daycab? Is there such a thing?

Yes, we have several here at my DC, with several more ordered apparently. That's part of what they're doing to eliminate the slip seating.

Through market research and surveys, WM has learned that the #1 reason they are having difficulty attracting new drivers is the slip seating policy, particularly with the sleeper cabs.
