Im curious what the cpm was supposed to be. Basic math would tell you Primes start pay (which is on the high end) is 44cpm for condo reefer and 49cpm for lightweight

44cpm x 2800 miles equals $1272

49cpm x 2800 miles equals $1372

before bonuses

so, even at one of the highest starting pays, you wouldn't be near $1800.

Did you do the math yourself? did you ask if that $1800 was team pay due to higher miles?

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

I thought the same...

As a solo driver he’d need to have a CPM north of 50 to come anywhere close to $1800.

Wow, as far as I know, my CPM is only .41 per mile. I still made almost 1000 bucks my first week out. But my CPM will go up as I continue to drive safe and on time.

A few cents more then me,I'm at 39 cents but started at 37 cents so got a pay raise. rofl-3.gif

I've haven't had much luck lately with live loads and unloads or loads that I can't deliver until the next day although I could do it the same day. rofl-1.gif

Even after all that, I make decent money for a rookie driver.

If you took home $983, your check was probably $1200 to $1300 I would think.

As far as picking the right company for you look at these.

As far as pay goes, I have posted my pay here. Rainy D has a thread of her pay.

What company are you with? This is a performance based industry. You have to prove yourself with any and every company you drive for. I suggest you apologize to your FM and withdraw your notice. Work with that company and prove yourself. At this point you know nothing. Good luck.

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

The recruiter said I would be earning between $1400 - $1800 per week. Guys with five years in weren't even getting a $1000.00 per week - Yeah I asked drivers to see their settlement sheets on the app on their phones cause drivers trust other drivers - Everyone here is judging me for watching out for myself and being honest ---- You guys are clearly morons working for for peanuts - judgmental too ... of course I wouldn't stick around here nor at a job were they lie to you about the pay and train you not to cook the books and don't do pre and post trips .....bunch of arrogant over paid haughty wheel turners and condencending

I hope you find what you're looking for. I don't think we're going to be able to help ya. We are all just a bunch of overpaid steering wheel holders. We are working though.
