Hello All, I'm starting McElroy orientation 12Mar18 and have been looking on their website at the CPM increases and new referral bonuses they just rolled out and noticed this "Current Regional drivers are averaging 60 cpm for all miles due to generous minimum pay loads." Any current McElroy drivers have any information on McElroy minimum pay loads? Thx in advance OC

Pay Scale for Regional and Local Company Drivers (Effective 03/04/2018) Years of Experience Pay Rate per Mile Local Regional 0-6 Months $0.45 $0.49 6 Mon – 1 Yr $0.46 $0.50 1-2 Years $0.47 $0.51 2-3 Years $0.48 $0.52 3+ Years $0.49 $0.53 *Rates above include tarp pay

Current Regional drivers are averaging 60 cpm for all miles due to generous minimum pay load.

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

First off welcome to McElroy. Where do you live? What home terminal will you be out of?

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I'm in Elizabeth City NC (northeast corner of the state), im heading to Pleasant Hill NC for orientation. Im guessing Pleasent Hill will be my home terminal aswell. Just retired from the military 2 weeks ago, I'm heading to a 40hr refresher course on the 5th then off to orientation the flowing week. Can hardly wait!!!

Thanks for your service. I can’t say much about what minimums they have out there. But I can give you a couple of examples we have in Texas and what I assume is how a lot of companies do it. For instance we have a lumber company that we run lumber to the Lowe’s DC, it’s about a 170 miles but pays either $135-145 can’t remember for sure. Also have some sheetrock runs that pay $145 minimum. Now if that load is long enough that you’d make more off the mileage they’ll pay you that. So for instance that run for me would pay minimum on anything under 280 miles. Over 280 and they pay me .52 a mile. Hope that helps a little.
