Thanks

Are you able to take a screenshot of the settlement? For my Samsung Galaxy I hold the power and home button at the same time. After you have the screenshot you can edit it to change the size of what's included in the pic as well as drawing on it to black out information you wish you keep private. Then in the comment section here there is a button that says photo. Upload the photo you wish to be added and press Go! Wait until it adds the coding to the bottom of your post and press preview to ensure it uploaded correctly and you're happy with it.

Just started with new company on 10th of February 2020! My first Settlement says 777.20 Gross and Net 628.19 Mine bank shows 588.00 deposited

I called payroll the lady says pay is correct ok but why is my Direct Deposit 40.00 short from my Net pay ? Even if I owed the bank money they would show the 628.19 as deposited right and the balance would be different! She told me at first it's because of per diem ? Then that she is not responsible for taxes but net comes after all deductions, Shouldn't the net pay be the same as the amount deposited?

Man, I would think so. Currently looking at my hubby's pay stub for this week, and the net sure does match the auto deposit. Always does. Sounds like it's on your company end, not the bank. If you 'did' owe the bank money for a prior overdraft or whatnot, it would be a separate line item on your bank statement.

Can you post a copy of your settlement from your company; maybe one of the veterans/moderators here, will see something you don't and my green self might not know about? I'd be questioning that, too.

Be safe~!

Will post Settlement just trying to figure out how to redac

Te personal info on phone first nothing on it about anything else just NET 628.19

double-quotes-start.png

Did the company withhold the $40 for something else, such as chains, locks, miscellaneous gear, pet deposit, rider insurance, etc.?

Looking for NEW TRUCKING HOME

HEY EVERYBODY ITS ME AGAIN Well out looking again for another job this time i finally don't care what trucks company have or how they are outfitted! I have found out APU'S,inverters, and a fridge is nothing compared to low pay and miles, and i can't eat a pretty truck, at THIS POINT I DON'T REALLY CARE IF THE TRUCK ONLY RUNS 60 MPH!

Before anyone jumps to judge me i have had one ticket in the last 3 yrs 7 mph over! no dot reportable accidents, no failed drug test or anything else to make me a risky hire! I am just tired of companies not keeping their part of our agreement, If they say i have to run 3 weeks at a time i'll do it with no complaints but when its time to go home i expect to get home(freight allowing) not being sent West from PA to new mexico while i live in GA 2 TO 3 DAYS BEFORE I'M SUPPOSE TO BE GOING HOME! I thought Marine recruiters could lie in the 70's but these truck recruiters have made it a new art form! I HAVE YET MET A FM,DM YET WITH ANY KIND OF BACKBONE OR HONOR! kNOWING i haven't met they all, but the few I have met leaves me thinking if i was in combat with them, can you say "friendly fire" . Ok bad joke!

All I want is the pay promised, and the hometime ASAP due to my location as promised, and no phone calls while i'm sleeping on my 10 hr dot break!

Looking at Heartland,barr-nun and jb hunt intermodal and a new company with only 3 trucks 7 sons out of georgia,maybe smaller would be better?

I'M old at 58 no longer is a mans word his bond it seems, I'm not looking to BE baby sitted but if keep my word i expect the same, (trying to get into heaven now-LOL)

I dont hang out in truck stops and only stop because of the gladly accepted 30 min rule! we drivers love so!

I'M NOT perfect and sometimes that old tymes MARINE shows his head, but leave me alone and let me drive and i'm as happy as a ------- in a pecker tree!

Anybody got any half descent leads, Don't worry I won't use your name. If your'e worried !

Well get some rest and be safe thanks

Does anyone know how long it wold take a team to get 140000 miles(estimate conservatively Please or best guess or worse scenario ????????????

Antione, I don't know where you get this stuff. I completed the Swift school in early January this year, and I do not believe they have changed that much in 6 months. BTW, I am speaking up, defending my experience there, not the company itself.

double-quotes-start.png

swift it cost 16.00 a meal to eat in Memphis

double-quotes-end.png

Sure, if you eat two meals! (no breakfast served) Their main lunch deal is $7.95, so two - maybe lunch and dinner - makes the 16 bucks.

double-quotes-start.png

no stores within 4-5 miles and no transportation

double-quotes-end.png

True! I once drove 4 miles to the closest Walmart

double-quotes-start.png

the school director told our entire if we thought we could get our cdl's in 33 weeks we needed to be for real(even thou that's what they advertised on their web page?

double-quotes-end.png

If I read this right, 33/4 is 8 months & change. Yes, get real! If you can't hack the course in two months, do some re-thinking.

double-quotes-start.png

also i have read that some people end up having to stay up to 5-10 weeks don't know if its true?

double-quotes-end.png

Can't say. I do know you may need to wait a bit for a mentor. Some of my co-students had to wait 2 weeks at home till the mentors came available. Not "5-10 weeks". I knew these people, I didn't read it on any web site. (Yes, all the stuff on the internet is true! LOL!)

double-quotes-start.png

.18 cents a mile for 120,000 miles

double-quotes-end.png

Are you writing about the mentor training? not at Swift! They pay students BY THE HOUR for either driving ($9.50/hr - that does work out to .18/mile at 50mph) or on duty not driving ($7.25). Not the "riches" of a solo driver, but better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

double-quotes-start.png

.18 cents a mile for 120,000 miles

double-quotes-end.png

What is this 120,000 miles all about? The mentor training is 200 hours, I believe, and after the final tests, there are no additional requirement to upgrade to solo.

First off in you were there in Jan you were in millington right but at the Memphis terminal you stay at the holiday in Memphis it cost 16.00 for dinner and we get up to early for breakfast,they have microwaves in the room but being by the airport there is no stores close by!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and that 2 months crap we did not have 2 months we had 11 days when i went in June they had(20 or so) trainers that quit and 3 class was sent home for 4 weeks more or less so they could schedule the cdl test. and what the director said if we thought we could get a cdl in 3 weeks we need to be for real he said there was no way we could get them in 3 weeks the whole class was there so why would i lie? and if you read its celadon not swift that requires 10,000 miles with a trainer then 120,000 miles with a team to fulfill the contract!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Swift pays by the hour not celadon they pay by the mile .15-.18 cents. You are one of those company defenders who never understand things change it was June 2015 when i was there not Jan 2015 this is what there when i was there!!!!!!! read before you attack next time. and swift cafeteria does not open at 6.am when we get to school at the Memphis terminal!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and it was swift own site that stated get your cdl in 3 weeks not some nut on the internet also it was their school director to think you would or could get them in 3 weeks was unreal thinking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! see super truckers don't read you just attack and call people a liar without being there? swift and celadon have two different training procedures on by the hour and one by the mile read read read ther is no dinner meal to get at school at swift in Memphis.

Having a school in Alabama shouldn't matter. Also, many other companies provide free food and free lodging.

You're choosing a company based on the least important things you should be considering. It doesn't sound like you're too enthusiastic about team driving.

Listen, you need to pick a company for the right reasons. The average driver pay for a new driver is in the low 30's, so based on our math you're willing to sacrifice 10,000$ yearly salary just for free food and lodging (which pretty much every company provides for free).

You see where I'm going with this?

I think you need to go back to the drawing board and decide a company that fits you for the right reasons - and providing a free 3$ meal shouldn't be the deciding factor.

I know you're probably tight on money (I was too) but there's always something you can do to give you some breathing room.

I don't know where you get 3 meals at swift tit cost 16.00 a meal to eat in Memphis no stores within 4-5 miles and no transportation ! i lost 50 lbs while at swift? and the school director told our entire if we thought we could get our cdl's in 33 weeks we needed to be for real(even thou that's what they advertised on their web page? And you are right the team thing i hate? also i have read that some people end up having to stay up to 5-10 weeks don't know if its true? and .18 cents a mile for 120,000 miles which could be 6-12 months is a joke? they claim 50,000 first year when you stay in school for a month or more plus 6 wks with a trainer then 6 months to a year getting the 120,000 miles that is almost a year so the must mean your second or third year? These companies just tell you anything but the truth it seems? What I liked the school was only 3 hrs from home not really a priority but if things went like swift where we had 11 days of training and had to wait 4 wks or more to come back for road training and cdl skills test wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You state other companies provide lodging and food which one's or there any that require a shorter commitment and better training pay with trainer than .15 or .18 a mile? good-luck-2.gif

Celadon requires student to drive 140000 miles at .15 cents a mile to meet contract requirements, driving as a team how long can that takeembarrassed.gif Does anyone know how long it wold take a team to get 140000 miles(estimate conservatively Please or best guess or worse scenario ????????????

The way I see it if I'm not wrong (even thou they say you get paid team miles its still .15 cents a mile until you drive the 140000 miles) more miles one week or not for 140000 miles @.15 = $21,000.

$21,000 / 12 months = $1750.00 $1750.00 / 4 weeks = $437.50 a week before taxes After My deductions= $404.03 a week

So that's like I will be making $10.50 a hour for driving over the roadwtf.gif

Sleep in moving truck, putting up with another person, no life, hard to get home time, low cpm since divided by two, Who takes truck home, who sleeps in top bunk when truck is stopped, sometime one person works harder and drives more than the other, arguments over making trip plans, lack of space for your stuff..... Oh and did I mention, putting up with someone else 24/7, sounds like being in prison wages includedrofl-2.gif

I make $23,700 a year now is this a pay cut? Net take home now $441.84 a week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanted to make more money to take care of my family better not worse? Is this why forums say they can't keep drivers? and you only get .33 cents a mile after contract solo, don't know what the team pays after contract? I think it is .48 cents a mile split plus some few pennies for extras, .24 cents a driver is that the standard for teams in the industry? 140000 miles @ .24 cents get you after deductions $599.32 a week for teams is that good?(insurance,401-k not included)

Need the truth on Celadon Quality driving school . any truth will help guide and build my confidence.

Greeny, welcome to Trucking Truth!

You are right about there being a lot of useful information in this thread, but boy you sure changed that trend with your last post. Look, I know you are a green horn, and I'm glad to see your handle reflects that understanding, but you seriously need to do your homework before you start making statements like this:

double-quotes-start.png

The lease options works best because you can get most of their money.

double-quotes-end.png

The whole purpose of the truck leasing programs is to transfer most of the company's expenses over to the lease operator. So, what the driver ends up getting is most of their expenses, not most of their money! If you think that team pay at .20 cents per mile is low, just wait till you get a taste of that .90 cpm along with the expenses of fuel and maintenance, and God forbid any major repairs that might just happen to come your way.

Keep studying and reading in here, you'll get a masters degree before you even get started good, but PLEASE don't let yourself get suckered into anybody's lease program until you absolutely understand what you're up against. And hopefully, by then, you'll know better than to try that anyway.

So I will get only 437.50 before taxes a week while I am driving the 140000 miles to fulfill the contract right? 140000 x .15= 21,000 dollars 21,000 / 12 months= 1,750 dollars before taxes a month 1,750 dollars / 4 weeks= 437.50 before taxes a week After deductions = $404.03 And that's if I can get 140000 miles within 1 year Does anyone know how long it wold take a team to get 140000 miles(estimate conservatively Please or best guess or worse scenario ???????????? confused.gifconfused.gif

Not going to work unless you are doing some specialized hauling. I believe that the truck will be too heavy. I would have to know the scale weight before a decision can be made. If it is more than say 23k full of fuel you can not haul most loads. That truck would be better for those loads that are light in weight but you would have to have a dedicated styrofoam account... LOL

I went to quality in Indy. Several students already had their permits. They still had to sit through all the classes, but didn't haze to retake the test.

That sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! could use that time on the skills range better use of time,i guess they do it so it can be included in the price huh?

How much can a Rookie Solo driver make, Im gonna tell you !

I want to caution people. Yes this was a good week for a solo driver and he drove his butt off but this will not happen every week. Because of one thing or another you will not see this type of miles every week. Unless your on a dedicated account like I am you will see on average 2000 to 2500 miles a week. These good weeks come and go.

Celadon says with 6 months experience .33 cents a mile what do they for 1-6 months i wonder cant find that infomation? is .33 bad or about average?

I was just informed that a student 5 months ago was forced by Quality Drivers/Celadon in Alabama at the Gadsden Alabama School at Osborne had to retake the Alabama CDL-A Permit test, The reason was it was in the contact that they pay for it? Is this strange or is it just me? could they not just reimburse you the cost? I have a Alabama CDL-A Permit with HazMat,Tankers and Doubles/Triples paid for by me and earned with study on my own this sounds crazy? Does any other school require this when the school is in the same state your permit was issued in?

CDL training school in Opelika, AL

CR England sent me to American Truck Driving Academy in Opelika, AL it's a 3rd party school they contract through no it's not a glamorous school the trucks on the backing field need to be replaced they had one that if you stayed on the brakes to long you lost air pressure you ended up having NO brakes. they had 5 road training trucks and 3 backing maneuver trucks 1 road truck just sits there because it went to Freightliner to have a new clutch and transmission put in with in a day after they got it back it wouldn't go into 5th gear so they have to wait for the other one being serviced to get back before they send it off again. The instructors know what they are doing I was in and out in 3 weeks yes I know I need more work on my backing maneuvers especially alley dock but I know that will come with time in the real world. The school needs updating they also have a no cell phone policy while on school property if you're looking for a school with newer equipment than this school IS NOT for you but if you live close to the school and want to learn the basics than go there. Also the hotel CR England puts you up in it's alright but watch out for housekeeping they're thieves if you can bring your car because there's not a lot to do unless you have a car to go back and forth.

Hi did you get your cdl i live only about ten minutes from the school already have my cdl with all endorsements from Alabama? couldn't afford to pay the school fees on my own? how many weeks were you there?
