Congratulations! At many companies, it would take two and a half years driving for that pay raise amount.dancing-dog.gifdancing-dog.gifdancing-dog.gif

2 1/2 cents per mile raise in encouraging for a wanna be like me.

Like I said in the OP I don't get back to the terminal much lately. This letter was dated March 15th so I went back and looked at my last couple checks had a raise for the last few weeks and didn't realize it... And I just got back from doing my taxes and getting almost $4,000 back... a nice last couple of days...shocked.pngsmile.gifthank-you.gif


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.
