Was just reading over there company sponsored training etc. I worked for Stevens after driving school in 2005, the starting pay at that time was .26 cpm... It hasn't changed in ten plus years, baffling!! Not a bad place to work if you want to run your butt off.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

Company Sponsored Training:

A Company-Sponsored Training Program is a school that is owned and operated by a trucking company.

The schooling often requires little or no money up front. Instead of paying up-front tuition you will sign an agreement to work for the company for a specified amount of time after graduation, usually around a year, at a slightly lower rate of pay in order to pay for the training.

If you choose to quit working for the company before your year is up, they will normally require you to pay back a prorated amount of money for the schooling. The amount you pay back will be comparable to what you would have paid if you went to an independently owned school.

Company-sponsored training can be an excellent way to get your career underway if you can't afford the tuition up front for private schooling.

Yeah. That's one of the reasons I ended up at prime. CR England and PAM were both around the same. I got $700 during training and 39.5 cpm when I went solo in Feb with the larger truck that ppl insist rookies can't get.

I researched and saw rhe increases at prime over the years as well.

Thanks for the info that it has been 10 years. Crazy

30 cpm once upgraded to solo.

Traing pay is $400.00 per weeks. Training is 240 hours OTR with a trainer.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

CPM:

The quality of the equipment and how all of the reviews say they take care of their people are the main reasons I signed up with Stevens. I figure the money will balance out with time, but I have been with too many companies who feel that employees are just grist for the money making machine and don't give a crap about you. Every review, comment, etc. I've read from Stevens employees and others say great things about the company.

Newer, high quality, and comfortable equipment is very important to my being happy spending the kind of hours you do in a rig. Being proud of how it looks going down the road, having it be so awesome looking that you can't help but do a couple of look-backs as you walk away from it, etc. That's the kind of thing that will make a long term effect meaningful for me. JMHO.

Stevens does have nice equipment, you most likely will start out in a old beater until you get some experience. Still a nice truck but your trainer will most likely have a sweet truck and you will be longing for it. Ha.
