    If you're a regualr Walmart employee, getting 40 hours of work a week takes an act of God, they pay just above minimum wage, and could care less about their employees. Just like any other All-American corporation

    Costco is a much better option. The lowest paid workers are making money in the mid-teens! Their turnover is happy and workers generally happy and productive. Apply there, instead!
    What does that mean?

    Happy turnover?

    Low turnover, ok, but happy turnover?

    I just wanted to make people aware of a veteran option for a job. Didn't want to start a war about where is better to work or what corporation is evil. Everybody has preferences and standards for themselves. I hope that if you all are aware of other veterans options you will feel free to place them in here to give the rest of us ideas that work as benefits from working in the military.

    If you're leasing a cab through a cab company, you don't need the medallion. The medallion is for whoever owns the cab. The purpose of this is to limit the number of cabs on the street in a particular city.

    The only time a driver is going to need a medallion is if he or she owns their own cab.

    With the exception of the independant guys out there with their one taxi that they own with their name on the side of it; they all do.

    They key is being able to find one that does 12-hour and six-hour leases. The smaller companies tend to lease by the week, but you don't want to go with one of these companies or owning your own cab unless you're highly experienced - because owning your own cab or driving for a mom & pop company means that you have to rely on personal repeat customers and flaggers; since there's little to no dispatch for you.

    You really want to work for the biggest company in the area, that way you have dispatch.

    Re: Walmart hiring process

    I thought about buying an older minivan and doing the airport shuttle thing. Since I have base access, and experience with troops I figured I could do that fairly I well. Plus possibly just do Friday nights or Saturday nights. Here on the panhandle between Duke field, hurby and Eglin I think I'd make a killing but then again, like many small businesses I could also get killed. So I pussed out.
