Drivers pay

Hello all. It has been a long time since I last checked in or posted here. As the title says driver pay is very stagnant. It really hasn't gone up since about the mid 1970's. I have been looking for a new company to drive for. I am sick or companies saying that they offer industry leading pay. Then only want to pay you .40 cents a mile. That's an insult to the driver. My first driving job started at .48 cpm. We the driver's are the ones that sacrifice everything for this job. Now I know we all have to start somewhere. But once you get some experience. Please do not settle for a mere pentance when you can make more money and have a life also.

Flatbedding is rewarding

Well 6 month's ago I changed over to being a flatbedder. For 2 1/2 yrs I pulled a reefer.

Now I have to figure out how I am going to secure each load and make it legal. At the end of the day. I know I can look back and know I did something positive. And that I did it safely.

I never got that pulling a reefer.

I do know there is a lot more work involved but it is worth it to me.

So if you want a challenge on every different load. Try flatbedding.

Is the day of the standard transmission gone?

When I drove for prime all of my truck's had 10 speed manuals in them. Now that I am with Melton I have an auto. After 6 months I still miss a standard.

Prime Bound

Prime is a great place to learn. I know. I started there 3 yrs. Ago. Became an instructor/ trainer there.

Left there in September to another company and make more money.

I was dispatched out of SLC. I can't say anything bad about prime as a whole.

Best of luck to you.

Prime Company Drivers Please Read

As far as company drivers go Prime is just about at the top for new drivers to start out with. The extra 5 cents a mile is worth it for a lw truck.

My Prime PSD experience

Listen to Daniel B. And Ken. The 3 of us are all instructor/trainers with prime.

As far as backing goes we all have good an bad day's. Sometimes you can one shot a really tight spot. And other days you can't back into a spot with 6 spaces open on either side of you.
