Breaker, Breaker, 1-9 This here’s Double D calling all Truckers! If you have your CDL and are looking for work, Walmart may be the place for you to investigate. Walmart currently employs 8,000 truck drivers but needs to hire more due to a shortage. The demand for drivers is so high that Walmart is offering $1,500 referral bonuses. There were 1,400 new hires last year.
Drivers will receive a pay increase that will result in a salary of almost $90,000 a year. They also offer predictable scheduling and three weeks paid time off. The U.S. Department of Labor puts the average truck driver’s salary around $53,000 annually as of last year.
Would you switch occupations to make more money driving truck?
