Welcome to Trucking Truth, Edmund!

25% of the load, you mean? What & how are you getting paid now? A bit more info will help the veterans & moderators of this site help you better.

Are you going (if you jump ship) from a W2 to a 1099 company? What is your current cpm? There are SO MANY parameters.

Why are you unhappy with your current job? Freight is a little 'stagnant' right now, which is the WORST time to jump ship. For instance, 25% of a load, if there ARE none, is .. well .. a negative integer! On the other hand, many companies that have cpm pay on W2's may have some types of layover and/or detention pays.

Please clarify a bit, if you can.

Lastly, this is one of the BEST threads, on this topic. All our 'BIG GUNS' weigh in. Mileage vs. Percent Pay.

Best wishes; read that thread!!

ps: If you'd at LEAST add your state to your location, it helps us, help you! :)

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.

How will you reconcile your pay? Unless you are privy to customer invoices how will you know what was charged?

I’d run from this… but that’s me.

From what I've seen in ads, and read, load %'s were not THAT low, for O/O's etc, dunno bout where ur looking at, just seems awful low to me, but Ihave no real clue as to that side of the biz lol

Know you would need to see their "rate cons", so you know you're not getting screwed over

Whatever you do stay away from those infamous Chicagoland area 1099 companies. Unless of course you are deadset on driving a white volvo and pulling containers.

It appears to be a 1099 reefer/container hauling company. They state 2 years recent reefer experience.

EMKO, Inc. Burr Ridge, IL They have 51 trucks; SAFER score so/so.

ps: As stated above, it's in your best interest NOT to hire on with a 1099 company.

Why haven't you applied here ? > Apply For Paid CDL Training

ALSO, (FOR YOU, Bird one, haha...) O/P, have you looked into FAB Express, in Lemont IL? My guy drives for them.

FAB Express Daycabs, pulling boxes, in boxes.

Yep. Anything percentage based for the foreseeable future (Pronounced Democrats Not In Power) I would run from. Rates are awful, freight is slowing, and fuel prices continue to rise daily.

Whatever happened to Andrey? He was "making money" at a great illegal 1099 company. Haven't heard anything from him since around Tax Day this year. Makes me wonder.
