Congratulations and good luck. They looked like a very good company. They were my second choice if Wolding had not worked out

I think so too! Was afraid I was going to have to "settle" or worse...

Clearly not one of the biggest but by all indications definitely "Top Tier".

Thanks Junkyard Dog, Cornelius 40 Days, Stevo Reno.

I think pay is above average. Lots of "little percs" like detention pay, premiums for "wee hours" deliveries, extra pay for starting the week on the weekend, etc.. In one example 40 cpm can go to 86 cpm.

Having said all that... it's not about the money for me. (Been there BLEW THAT ONE!)

My "future driver manger" drove for two years. She is very proud of their training program and says they have successfully developed candidates that were "not the best" when they got there.

Current plan is a week of orientation / classroom / range followed by a total of 5 weeks driving. Most is "home daily" (hotel in Marinette, WI I think). Last week is with a co-driver (another student, I think). Then "test out" to go solo.

Sounds workable.

Hoping to be able to stay around long-term but because we want to stay together, not because we have to!

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

Sorry to "name names"

Yeah, I'm sorry you did too, so I took care of that for you. Don't do it again.

Congrats Marc. Not sure I would worry to much about the “little percs” or the CPM....in your situation I might just worry about getting through the next few weeks and on boarding with Veriha. ...you laid out the schedule, but remember to take it day by day.

Good luck
