It looks like I will be getting my training from one of the trucking companies. As I slowly and carefully do my research, I have discovered that the recruiters sure know how to blow that sunshine... I had one hang up on me when I told him to please put that all in writing and fax or e-mail it to me. I do have one question maybe someone can answer. Is it true that Stevens Transport is paying 23 cpm for newbies? I Couldn't get a straight answer from Mr. Sunshine. That seems obscenely low.

Cents Per Mile

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

They sure do. And a rookie who doesn't know what he doesn't know will usually eat up whatever their saying, especially their claims of you profiting six figures if you lease.

I wouldn't ever work for a company paying less than .28cpm. That's just too low, this jobs to dangerous to be risking your life for that kind of low pay.

I remember the first recruiter I encountered, he told me how much money you make in trucking. He told me you make a ton more team driving and then he did the math.... using the formula of team driving 7,500 miles a week. Thank God I knew better (thanks TT).
