I mentioned in one of my posts last week, I think, that I had been having a fair amount of layovers. Well, I received an email from my company that I had qualified for the monthly mileage bonus (minimum of 2,000 miles average per week) and to my surprise, I had averaged 2,500 miles/week during the month of September. If I had to guess, I would have said like 2,100, possibly slightly under. I don't know how I did that because I did quite a bit of sitting on loads, sitting waiting for loads. But, I did it, so praise God for that.

I wish I could get a mileage bonus, I think I averaged 450 miles a week last month 😂 Dang good thing local work doesn’t pay by the mile or else I’d be better off flipping burgers.

Ok, Mr. Smarty-pants driver, our mileage is calculated based on predetermined load assignment calculated miles. So, even if I knew how to jimmy an odometer, it wouldn't affect my calculated miles for a bonus.

Yeah pay by the mile and local driving with city traffic would be a recipe for "to hell with this STUFF."

Congratulations on receiving your bonus!

Wow! I get a few more than that, but I certainly won't be winning any mileage contests.

With miles like that, you aren't OTR , right?

Getting a little stronger on miles for me current 8-day cycle.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Correct. I'm NE dedicated. Off on weekends. Luckily I get paid a flat rate per shift plus each load. I did have some similar looking weeks while OTR with Prime if I was stuck in the NE. And the days were a lot longer bc of live loads and unloads of course. Those were few and far between though.

Riehl Diehl, I follow a group on fb for barr-nunn drivers. Do u like the company? Seems 70/30 to the good on the group. I see a lot of complaining about the miles. I think from what I read the shift pay is way to go. Not to jack the thread, just wanting some insight on the company.

I think it's great. Easiest job I've ever had. Sure, there are frustrating situations dealing with crap in the NE, but overall I'm really enjoying this company.

Feel free to ask questions. I might not know all the answers. Gotta get rolling now...
