Found out today while we were training on using the app that pay went up all the way across the board. For Squire Trainees, its now 800 a week (after you have graduated from Squire school) and base pay to start for Squire solo is now .44 cpm. Stoked on that.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

And..... Swift is offering $800 a week during training and $.44-46 once assigned a tractor. Either way you can’t go wrong.

Stoked.

Still on sliding pay scale?

to be honest, I dont know, I know they said shorter runs (under 300 miles i think?) have an add on to the base pay cpm , and safety, fuel bonuses are based on mileage and monthly I think but maybe quarterly. I havent paid too much attention to it, I just happened to see that tidbit about the payrate increase when we were introduced to the app today. Ive mostly just been wrapped up with school. I assume that what goes for Knight now goes for Swift for the most part. Idk though, they seem to still be two separate entities.

I think so too. Looking out of the box at it, If someone said to me "Were going to pay you 800 bucks to go play with our 100k dollar vehicle in parking lot next week and learn how to park it from some very qualified people, you game?" Oh and also, play with our several thousand dollar VR computer game too....My response is "Sign me up, Im game."

Thats huge. I started swinging a hammer in 1988 for a living, after a year I was making 25.00/hr. In 2021, if I was to go to work for someone else hourly i would have been making......25.00/hr.

Really glad to hear this, I’m currently in school for Knight and haven’t really been able to track down any information regarding pay. Appreciate the update.

I would say check with your recruiter on pay structure and if you have the My Knight portal set-up, it shows you your bonuses, payroll setup and what you on track for making. Are you in school at Phoenix or SLC?
