Old Dominion

I'm a linehaul driver for OD. I"m assuming your uncle runs out of the Morristown, TN terminal? I noticed you're in TN.

You're pretty much always going to make more $ at an LTL company, versus a truckload company - that's just the nature of the beast. But, as some drivers pointed out, $ isn't always the most important thing - that's a personal preference. I can tell you that a team driver for OD on average will run 6k miles a week, at between .65-.68 cpm. Do the math.

Do you have insight on "owner operator" at OD? OD Owner Operator ad. Ad mention "% OF REVENUE, CURRENTLY 72%", I also heard OD cap ceiling at $1.25: $1.25 Ceiling cap. Any knowledge about Owner op at OD and the 1.25 ceiling? Thanks anyhow...want to become owner op within 1yr: Roadrunner and OD looking good

Me vs trainer?

Had a trainer kept saying "what are you doing" over and over, now c'mon if im doing something wrong then tell me what it is. I case of OwnerOperator/IC they have nothing to loose by being a trainer; their miles/revenue double, just annoying when trainer has no common sense/respect for others In the end I didn't learn crap from him....had to watch youtube to learn to proper way to shift. Also, at the end of week 4, back to Springfield, and god forbid if you don't pass the skill/road test then you'll easily replaced with driver with CDL in hand for 30k TNT. Logan try hard not to loose your temper, that's the only thing i can say; "you can't put out fire with fire".......
