LTL Trucking - My linehaul job

Yea I'm filling out an application tomorrow. Can't wait to see what happens. .52/starting point sounds pretty good to me and she told me P & D was $22.40 an hour to start. Those figures make more sense to me for all I have done and gone through to get into this line of work. Just want to be paid a fair wage. Fingers crossed!

Thanks Jon R. I'm in Columbus, Ohio and thinking of stopping by the terminal tomorrow to talk with them about a career. Not making much OTR! Think I could use more home time at this point also.

A friend I went to truck school with started at Estes doing P & D fresh out of school starting at $21.55 per hour. Does P & D pay hourly and line haul by the mile? Thanks for your input and thread!

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

I was a self employed painter for over 20 years. Mostly repainting apartments after people moved out. It was getting really bad! Had to deal with fleas, roaches, and bedbugs! I had had enough and decided to attend Roadmaster and start a new career!

Estes Drivers Out There?

Looking to hear from drivers from Estes. I currently work for Knight Refrigerated, but I'm interested in making a change. Have heard good things about Estes, and would like to hear from some drivers. My concerns are that I'm otr and bust my butt for .32/mile. I'm squire right now until I reach 30,000 miles. Then I'll become a "Knight" with a bit more pay. I'm out of Ohio. Just got back from California. Knight keeps you busy for sure, but pay is not good in my opinion. After school, orientation, training, and now probationary period, I have faced eviction, utilities shut off, cell phone shut off...etc. Just alot to deal with while being away from home. Just want to make a fair wage for all the sacrifice, and work that I have put in! Thanks for your help! Eric
