If it's not specified in the details of your pay report, ask your manager...

Sounds like you located one of Werner's lost trailers maybe. My own company has a long list of trailers that they lost track of and offer cash rewards to drivers that see and report them.

Ok, I am about 95% sure that is part of the sign on bonus you may have received or may still be currently receiving. Did they offer you one when you signed on with them? What account are you on? When I drove for them I was on their slip seat team account. I had a 5K sign on bonus I received over 6 payments and that was labeled Bounty Bonus on my stubs.

I am just a solo OTR driver no account an no sign on bonus. Not sure if I found any lost trailers I just drop the loaded ones and then find an mt in the lot but who knows maybe I found one next time I call my fm I will ask her.

Mm24 why did you leave Werner if I may ask

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Fm:

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.

Reference the below link which was my very first post on here. That explains part of it.

Had to downgrade Class A TX CDL to Class C license because I couldn't afford the physical. I want my CDL back. What do I do here?

The other part of it is explained below.

What led me to getting off the road there was I had to be at home practically full time to help take care of 2 disabled roommates I was helpin out at that time. They along with another one of their relatives ultimately betrayed me and led me to becoming homeless. This is a pretty sore situation that I really don't like talking about however If it helps to answer your question, I am glad to help. THEY wanted me to leave Werner. I didn't want to but I had promised to take care of them however I could and being home full time was the only answer. I regret trusting them now, however once I get me a new place of my own, wherever it may be, I am living alone. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE helping people, but I am no longer going to live with others. If someone needs help with housing I will be glad to help them find a place, but NO ONE is allowed to live with me ever again, ESPECIALLY with what I went through. I do hope this answers your question. Sorry if I sound a bit condescending here however as I stated earlier, this is a very sore subject with me here and I don't feel comfortable getting this personal with ANYONE.

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.
