That list isn't accurate. It depends way too much on the driver. Also, Western Express has no chance being top 10. Perhaps its a different Western Express?

Sysco is much more physical than the other jobs and the speed you unload directly affects your pay. Unloading 300 cases into 1 stop you're able to earn a higher wage because you're not wasting time touching other stops cases trying to find cases coming off right now

I thought Sysco was hourly, in which case the speed you unload affects your pay, but in the opposite direction you're thinking of. I'm hourly, and make more on a three stop run than a single drop, simply because it takes me longer. It's honestly my biggest gripe working an hourly job, the guys milking it make more than the hustlers.

I could be wrong about their pay structure though, where's our Sysco guy?

He stopped back after he got furloughed, then... blip. Crickets. Somebody else worked for them for awhile, years ago...Heavy C, I think.

I'm alive; I still work at Sysco except 2000 miles away in another state

Update: I have been grossing between 3000-4500$/wk at US foods for the last few months

US foods is so much better than Sysco

Right. You've been grossing $18,000 per month for a few months (at $4500 per week).

Let's see the pay stubs.

I have to agree. I've seen this list before and Western Express is always on it. I know they recently upped some pay and may have changed their pay scale but when I was there someone fresh out of CDL school started at .26cpm and topped out at .34cpm. Flatbed paid a little more cpm. They must be counting all pay including training pay so basically 90% of their drivers train so they're credited for double pay. I did pretty well there but refused to train. They start asking drivers to train at 3 months experience mark.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

Yuuyo, this is impressive! How many hours do you put in daily, and at what rate? US Foods is hiring in my area, offering $30. Even working 70 hours with overtime after 40, it is still 40*30+30*45=2,550. What is your trick to almost double it?

If you work 6 days your dayoff is dt, thur/fri is dt, and sat is triple time regardless according to current union lou

If I work 5 days I gross around 2500-2800 because I work sat

Ok I will give you the full list when I get home but I did mention a huge range with the descrepancy between 5/6 days

But you probably still won't be satisfied with that attitude
