Walmart to Hire Hundreds of Truck Drivers, Raise Salary to Nearly $90,000
Walmart has announced it will hire "hundreds" of truck drivers and raise driver pay in 2019. Last year, the company saw same-store comp sales hit three percent, "which is leading to increased demands on the transportation network," according to a press release. Walmart said 1,400 new truck drivers were added to its fleet in 2018.
