Took and passed my physical Friday. Took and passed my drug test (presumably, since I don't use drugs) Friday. Just awaiting the final results to come in from the drug screen, then I south's get a start date. Local job, home every night (unless I'm willing to take longer runs, then I'll get a truck with a small sleeper and still not be home longer than overnight once a week) off Sundays and most Saturdays, paid holidays, insurance, 2 weeks vacation starting in January. Hope it's as good as it sounds, I'm ready to be in a place until retirement.

I'll be unloading my trailers though. It's paid drainage tubes. But after the wake-up call the doctor gave me during my physical, I'll be more than happy/willing to get in some manual/physical labor throughout the day.

Congrats Jay :)

I actually started with another company too. It's a bit of a long story how it all worked out but it also includes physical labor and much better money and home time, so I'm happy.

Awesome, I'll post updates of my experiences.

I need to set up a new photobucket account for pics. This trailer I'm running has an integrated rail crane system. It's a lot on fun being able to load and unload wherever, whenever.

What's the monetary remuneration? :)

Pay? 40 cpm , 14 dollar per stop.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.
