This is amazing! I really love the information. I have been leaving towards prime, especially the bonus for lightweight trucks. I think I am down to prime or knight. Knight being based out of Phoenix is a bonus, does prime have a terminal there? Do you do much runs in southern AZ?

Wow Jay, you are so lucky. I'll be in Pheonix today later afternoon or evening. Most likely parking at the Pilot. If you would like you can come see the legend (me) and ill show you everything and answer all the questions you have, including the one you just asked.

Send me a private message and I'll send you my number.

Dang I wish I was up there, I would totally take you up on that! I'm down in Tucson, a couple hours away and working on the mountain today over at Kitt Peak observatory.

I'll be in Pheonix tomorrow morning and will most likely be leaving around noon if you'll be there tomorrow.

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.

There is one thing I do not understand. What is the "Tiered Pay" thing?

I honestly don't know. I got Tiered pay at Central Refrigerated but not at Prime. Maybe someone more educated in finances can answer this. Sorry!

Maybe "tiered", as in 100-150 mile run @ x cpm , 150-300 mile run @ y cpm, 300-500 mile run @ z cpm . . . ?

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

Hey Daniel, the Dollar Sign ($) goes BEFORE the numeral . . . i.e. $400 - NOT 400$ . . . unless, of course, you're RUSSIAN!rofl-1.gif

Jopa (and we ALL know what THAT means in Russian . . .)

Hey Jopa! That's not how it's done anymore. Back in the 17th century, when you were just a young lad, folks put the $ before the number but this day and age it anen't written like that anymore.

Thanks for the info on your pay. im about to start driving truck soon and this gives me a little comfort in my estimate of first year earnings. ive heard as low as $25,000 to a high of $55,000 first year . Thanks again

That's it? All these recruiters guarantee $1,100 a week --- how am I going to support my wife on that? I'd make more staying home as a welder instead of going on the road. :(
