Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Brandon, congrats!

Michael was home for a couple of days and just left this morning. He loves his work at Marten and may just stay there but I told him about the expansion of WalMart's private fleet and shared with him local postings by WalMart. What type of schedule are you expected to run? Home daily, weekly, or ? Michael is happy to be on the road for 12 days and home for about 2 or 2.5 days but at some point hopes to get married, start a family, etc. and being home more often might be a good idea for that. He's not yet got the 30 months either but just something for him to think about.

He delivers to WalMart DCs sometimes and I'm wondering if you will mostly deliver to stores or run between vendors and DCs since that has been something previously done by outside drivers.

I’m definitely not photo shopped. I’m Brandon’s wife of almost 12 years. Extremely proud of my husband.

Awww thank you! I look forward to chatting with other trucker wives. I have to say I am pretty excited about starting this new chapter with Brandon. Riding along with him sometimes when both our work schedules align will be awesome!

They told us two weeks. One week riding, one week driving.

Awesome, congratulations pal. I'm happy for you. Will you be doing a week with a mentor?

I’m not sure yet my exact schedule, but I’ve been told by the recruiter it would be a 5-2, 5-3. I’m pretty happy with that. I’m sure vendors, stores and dc’s are all part of it. Turtle could answer that better since he’s been there awhile.

Brandon, congrats!

Harvey here is a link to Turtle’s WMPF diary:

Turtle’s WMPF Diary

Search on “Walmart”; there is a ton of info on running Walmart stores and Sam’s Club.

Brandon, congrats!
