About to start my new career with May Trucking. Anybody know anything about them? Just graduated truck school.

Looks like they have nice equipment (it would be cool if you could drive one of the new 2018 Cascadias they have!), good home time (from their website: "You can expect 2-3 weeks out for 11 Western Division & 3-4 weeks out for the 48 State Refrigerated Division."), and they look like an overall great company.

This is all going by their website, I have honestly never heard of them before.

Welcome Daniel...

This link hopefully answers the basics for you: May Trucking

You might also find these links equally valuable:

You can use the Search Bar in the upper left hand corner for specifics. Good luck to you and if you can, keep us posted on progress!

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Hey Daniel, I to plan on working for May. I should be starting CDL school in a few weeks. My nephew works for them and he really likes them. Good home time, decent pay. And most important to him, his DM treats him very well. As a military retiree, I value a good manager/supervisor that treats their people well. Of course there are a lot more we talked about at family functions that would be to much to list here, I think you made the right choice. One thing I would say to research upon your employment with them is to ask a lot of questions about their flat rate pay for your first year of working with them. It just may be a better option than cpm pay until you start getting the miles under your belt. Good luck!

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.
