Not so good if you want to have a life outside of work.
VTL Driver (Former Employee) – Wintersville, OH – March 15, 2012
My experience with the company was great at first. After about a month of nail-biting training, and 2 weeks of in-truck training which had issues in itself, I was given my position to make local Walmart Deliveries within 250 miles of Wintersville, OH. The directions you can get for the stores from in the office are wrong about 40% of the time and your not allowed to use your phone while driving, so by the time you find a place to pull over most of the time, you are in an area that trucks arent allowed. It was like this day after day. I had many talks with management about this, and also working us until our full 14 are up every day so we dont get to come home for a week at a time, and I live 5 minutes from the office! Another big issue was "slotting". You would tell them by the "in -truck computer" when you are available. If you said you were ready at 7am, you would wake up at 6:30, and maybe not get a load until noon, then they still want you to work a full 14 hours from that point! They stress safety, safety, safety, but the only thing they are worried about is production, production, production. Not a good job for someone starting out, or someone that wants to spend more than 30 hours home a week.
great pay, with 6 month increases.
very under managed, work weeks push 70 hours.
