Yeah, two checks.

Yawns...

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

I will have the same attitude, Doctor.

Hourly pay, then all the other freebies figured in aren't the same as mileage pay. Apples to oranges comparison to me.

Even with those kind of numbers I still don’t know if I’d be able to do it. Certainly have my respect.

I’m though curious though yuuyo how many stops are you cranking out on that kind of money?

Us foods works you way less than sysco so Im getting like 8-12 a day; most individual stops I've seen are like 14. It's really hard on one route to take more than 10-11 hours to complete it whereas sysco will try to push you past 14 if you don't work like a maniac.

If I see 18 stops then you end up having 3-4 at the same location like 3 times so you really only get like 12.

Yuuyo what DC are you out of? Atleast general area. Those numbers are super impressive. How long have you been at US foods? I'm familiar with numerous US Foods DCs and none pay anything close to that so you guys definitely have a very generous contract. Is this in a region that is heavily dependent on tourism? For example when I was working for Sysco in Palmetto winter months was very lucrative and some drivers were pulling in similiar money. Come summer time (dead for tourism) they were pulling in less than half, and close to a quarter of it some weeks due to lack of work. I don't doubt you've had a couple checks that size and I'm super happy for you. However, being that this is trucking truth I'd hate for someone to think they're going to make over $230k based on a couple checks. A few guys I know in non-tourist locations make between $70 and $75k with their hours around 55 in a 5 day week.

I have moved out of Miami and am back in the same original region I was at for Sysco.

Right now this is temporary for the whole summer season, and once its over we will go back to 18-2500/wk like normal. (Though working your off day is still DT)

I only work like 65 hours/6days which is amazing for this kind of work where on the 6th day you'd have like 5 hours left and be forced to do whatever to deliver that didn't involve driving a cmv so you'd get 75-80 for the week.

The most I've gotten here was 74 hours and that was due to warehouse waiting, not actual work.
