Walmart is hiring at least 100 truck drivers to support its Porterville and Sacramento distribution centers.

The retailer also is hiring drivers in Sparks, Nev.

Interested job applicants can apply online at drive4walmart.com.

They should have at least 30 months of full-time experience and no serious traffic violations in three years.

Drivers can earn 89 cents per mile and up to $87,500 in their first year, according to the company.

Walmart says it offers predictable schedules using a bidding process to set schedules. It also has no-touch freight, meaning drivers don’t have to unload the trucks.

Walmart employs 8,000 drivers and more than 70 transportation offices nationwide. They deliver to 4,700 locations across the country, including Walmart and Sam’s Club stores.
