What happens when Celadon doesn’t work out , either?

Exactly what every new driver should be thinking about.

What are your personal reasons? The promise of more CPM and more miles? More home time?

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

No matter what the reason, you agreed to work for US Express. Do you really think that coming into this is going to work for McDonald's? It's not! Once your commitment is done with them, then if you are not happy, shop around. I see people at truck stops and at rest stops and they see me get out of my Swift truck, and say how can you work for them. They are nothing but liars. Well, I like where I am. They have not lied to me. So don't always expect the.grass to be greener somewhere else. If I'm not mistaken, it was either Old School or Brett who did an article about this very subject. You'll have to go back maybe a couple of months though. Think hard before you leap. It could be financially devastating a d could get you blackballed from other companies because you decided to not make your commitment. A signed contract is the same as if you went to a bank to get a loan.

A few months ago I was on break at a truck stop and someone asked me the same about OD, said how poorly they treat people, how poorly they and all large companies pay as well as some other noise.

I told him I have been treated more than fairly by everyone, and watched him climb into a old Mack that had a different color fender while I have a 2019 KW which at the time had 40k something miles.
