Okay so I’m at 50,000 miles still making 700$ per week . Over a week ago talked to fm oh he would take care of my delay pay. Now everybody else has been getting theirs even my old roommate that came to prime the week I got my cdl. So it wasn’t on my check last week. Okay so prime owes me for 4 weeks 1200$ . I’m told no prime doesn’t pay back pay. Shouldn’t I feel screwed without a kiss? Actually I feel pretty 😡.

  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.

Sorry you’re having to deal with this Donna. Keep on top of your FM & if you still get no resolution, then go above his head. Good luck!!

Hey Donna, solo pay is better than delay pay... I'm just saying...

I guess I need to quit giving you the nudge, you know what I think. I'd be off that truck in a heartbeat.

Wholeheartedly agree but didn’t want to go there, though I do appreciate your tenacity! rofl-3.gif

Prime will.make an adjustment. if your FM wont take care of it, call Stan AUMAN, not stan kasterke. Stan Auman is the FMs boss. Even mention to the FM "would it help.if i talk to stan, maybe he can sort it out if its out of your hands"....nicely. see what happens.

Donna, sorry... that sounds crappy.

May I ask how long you have been on the trainer's truck and why?

I thought 30k / a month was a long time. .
