Werner Dollar Store runs in Northeast

I got a message about doing this temporarily yesterday. I ignored it. The only thing I know about these accounts is what I've read here. I'm not doing it. Not anytime soon anyways.

I see you're in Mass Shawn if you don't mind me asking what have you decided on in the Northeast? I'm in Vermont and looking for something that will get me home at least a couple times a month.

Werner Dollar Store runs in Northeast

Not sure what Werner pays, but US Xpress on their Dollar General account, of which there are a number of Werner trucks that pull the same freight at the same location for Dollar General. The get paid .39cpm, $90 a trailer, and $25 per stop. Some of these guys average abound 1,000 to 1,200 a week. If you hustle more then you make more. This is based on at least 5 trailers a week. As G-town said, these types of accounts will challenge you backing skills big time. And you will almost for sure get into a backing accident quickly. I wouldn't recommend it to a new driver. I am on this same account and already had a booboo in just over a month. Not going to stay with this account as I have told my safety director 53ft trailers should never go in to a small strip mall with cars everywhere, children running around, old people waking, and cars always trying to beat you in or out of the parking area. And there is no one out there to spot you. Don't want to scare you being a newbie, but at least you're getting the info before you start. Just something to think about. Good luck.

Thanks G-town, Jetguy and Boomshaker I really appreciate the info and with the other post on here that I have read I think I will stay away from these types of accounts.

Werner Dollar Store runs in Northeast

Fresh driving school graduate here and have been offered a dedicated run in the Northeast based out of the Rome, NY hub. Just looking for some opinions on these runs. I know the basics as far as what they pay per trailer unload ($164.00) and per stop ($10) but there seems to be some variation as far as cpm (.39 cpm offered). There also seems to be some varying of opinion on what you can make a year. They are claiming up to $55,000 first year that includes tuition reimbursement of up to $5,000 is this a realistic number? Looking forward to hear everyone's opinion good and bad.
