Got a call from our DM we are getting 18 CPM boost in May !!

Cool puts me up from .42 to .60 CPM potential to double my 1st full years pay into the 70-80k realm......

Might rethink retiring this December when I hit 62 haha or not

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

From what I've heard, if you read the announcement closely, it's an 18cpm bump to the TRUCK not to the individual driver. Making the individual cpm lower over all.

This is just what I was told from a friend whose still with CRST currently. Very well may be that he read it wrong.

That would still be a huge bump if it is split after all.

I heard CRST only pays you for what you drive, not for what the truck drives. I know some companies pay you split or together (example, if you are on a .50 split, you get .25 for say all 5k miles that month, OR .50 for the 2500 you drove, because either way it is the same). I asked a recruiter and they said "No, you get the split for your miles, not all".. so I was like.. cool I get .32 for 2700 miles? I can make more solo. I could be wrong though, or the recruiter just didn't understand? Who knows.

When I was there five years ago, I made 46 CPM , and my co driver was at 32 CPM. We split the miles, so on a 2000 mile dispatch, we were each paid for 1000 miles.

It may be different now or the same.

Its still the same Pack Rat

Since each driver started at diff times. Mileage is split he will get 50 cpm now 10 cents more for his 10th month

I get 18 cents since I been here 18 months. BUT it is capped at 18 cents per my Sr DM.... Been at 42 since my 12th month.

Somewhere. I did lose my giant xtra penny last Sept. for my short navy stint back in '77 lol But I wasnt cryin over it now this more than makes up for it.

NOW I see why by other threads posted of raises ....Trying to retain drivers from jumpin ship knew there had to be a reason behind it.

But I am happy with our DM he has been here q3 years 1 of 4 Sr DMs and he takes pretty good care of us.
