Ouch. Thanks for posting that. Their team pay does seem to be a bit higher than most that I've looked at.

Hey not bad at all man. Definitely worth the time you'd put in. I don't know how long I'll be here but it's a decent scale as well.

I don't think I could afford to work for them as a solo driver.. would be a massive pay cut for me. That doesn't even consider all the accessorial pay I get either. West Side starts inexperienced drivers on the low side but bumps up pay quite rapidly.

Almost. 50cpm massive pay cut? Big money Susan lol

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

Schneider starts fairly low at 34cpm, but after 1 year, I'm bumped up to 43cpm classified as Midwest regional. Top pay for Midwest is 48cpm after 9 years. Seems like a long time to reach max pay.

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

9 years is a bit excessive I'd say but not too bad I guess. I think most companies take a few years to max out anyway.

I'd understand maybe 3 or 5 years personally.

Some companies start at that wage. Ltl is where it's at for that purpose. Into the 60s after a while. May have hijacked thread, I do apologize.

LTL:

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier

I'll hit the 2 year mark in early February.. already above that pay scale. But I bust my tail and am always one of the top drivers at my company.

Thanks to the wisdom I've gleaned from Brett, Old School, GTown, Errol, and so many more here on TT, I am a driver who gets things done and my company has rewarded me exceptionally well.
