Long Hours and Low Pay
The good. New trucks and trailers.
NO TOUCH freight, dock delivery.
The bad. 12+hour work days. Nights, weekends, and holidays required.
You will be at the mercy of Wal- Mart employees to get your truck unloaded in a timely manner.
The Pay sucks!!! You get activity/productivity pay. $15 per stop and .77 cent per mile. So to make any money, you need to driver about 300 miles per day! Most of you stops are DFW area local, so you ain't driving far. Also, $15 per stop. So if you are at a store or back haul for 30 minutes or 2 hours, all you are getting is $15!!! Some stores are faster than others. You can try to help unload, but management doesn't want you to. And Wal Mart doesn't want you to either.
Hub Group says you will get $1250 per week average, but what they don't tell you is that you will work 60+ hours per week to earn that.
So do the math; $1250 divided by 60 hours equals $20.83 per hour!
And some days, you will not average $20 per hour.
This Hub group account has very high driver turnover rates.
Truck driver jobs that have excellent work-life balance, don't have high turnover rates.
A job where you work less than 50 hours per week,
and average $25 per hour.
Just do the math, 50 hours multiplied by $25 per hour equals $1250.00 per week!
No touch freight, new tractors and trailers. 100% dock delivery
Long hours, low pay. Nights, weekends and holidays required. Slow Wal-Mart employees unloading your truck.
