About showering....lol

I did my first month with a trainer (Carolina Cargo wtf-2.gif ) And we stopped every day, usually on her time because she was "in charge" so I didn't care much. But we made it a point because we switched our bed every day and didn't want stink from the other person.

As a female driver, I can assure you that you will always be able to get a shower. The longest I have ever had to wait was 30mins.

Stick to your route plan and get places early so you will have time to shut down and do that's stuff.

Company Paid Training or No?

Are you planning on being out a lot? What reasons are you looking at them for?

Blue bloodhound

I just sent him this email so I will hopefully have answers tomorrow. Brents@bluebloodhound.com

So I had a few more questions I just thought of and wanted to ask before I forgot them.

1. Do you provide the type of truck we will be using in the run?(model, gears, etc.) 2. What is the average pay out per run? 3. Are those runs taxed? 4. Do we provide the gas or is all of that taken care of by the company needing the load taken? 5. What all is mentioned in the previous load trip paper? 6. How often are your servers updated and how quick is your company with making sure a load isn't double booked?

I saw a topic the other day but can't find it. So I'm making a new one. I signed up Saturday night so naturally no one replied to me until today.

So you need 1. 10 years employment history 2. Cdl 3. Mvr 4. Proof of a membership to a drug testing consortium. 5. Cdl medical cards.

it says 24hrs to approve your profile that you have to make but the man i spoke with said it can take up to 5-7 days.

What's this "BlueBloodhound" thing?

They have been advertising that here in Columbus Ohio too. My sister in law sent it to me because I'm looking for work. Maybe I will call them and get info if anyone wants me to ask them something you can post it here

Do you get paid the same CPM for deadheading?

yes. All miles paid

I think once get through the initial learning curve, you should be able to hit and possibly surpass their compensation estimate. Your unknown is wait times, especially if dealing with a live load/unload situation. 50k annually is roughly $25.00 hour; so your $65 for a "live" situation is gone in 2.6 hours.

so you think once I get into itand learn the ttimes of the places and get moving faster with getting my cargo I will make more?

I appreciate the word of caution. He said 3 to 4 stops a day. And after an hour it's 10 an hour I think.

28 cents per hub mile. $30 per drop/hook. $65 for live load/unload stops. Average $50k/year

is what jb. Hunt. Offered me. Is that any good?

That CPM rate seems rather low. What is your average mileage per week? How many trips will you average per day? Find out is there is detention pay and how it works.

A word of caution; some of the worst equipment on the planet is rail trailers and containers. Your pre-trip must be thorough. Keep in mind DOT's favorite camping spot is at or near the entrance of an intermodal yard. Not saying it's bad gig, just be aware of "all" that goes with it.
