I worked out of the Home Depot DC in Monroe, Ohio from 2013 to 2018, after driving random OTR , which they don't do anymore, for them since 1998.

The good, if you live in the right area, as I did at the time, you could stop at the house every other night. The bad, the pay was horrible. Bear in mind, that was six years ago, so I don't know what has changed since then. The loads left out every morning, you went to either Nashville or St Louis area, delivered to one or two stores, then usually waited until the next day for a back haul back to Monroe. Therefore, you were only getting 300-400 miles per day. If you were lucky enough to get a day cab , it was possible to get more miles, but every day was 16 hours. I was making a whopping $600-750 per week. Never much more than that. Again, that was five or six years ago, so I don't know what they're paying now.

When I started driving for JB Hunt, they were paying me 37 cents per mile. By 2012, I was making 47 cents per mile. Then they eliminated OTR, everything went dedicated or local, and my pay was 32 cents per mile when I left in 2017.


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.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.
