Considering a position with Celado and am wondering if anyone has any experience with them? I assume all ate basically the same and your experience with them is pretty much what you make of it, but there are exceptions. So, anyone? Anything?

I've honestly heard mixed reviews on Celadon. Slighty more negative than positive but thats just what ive seen online. Talked to a guy at a DMV not to long ago who drove for them and he said he got screwed his lease which Believe is about the only company that offers a walk away lease. Another great website to check out is truckers report that have pages dedicated to just certain companies that one for celadon I believe.

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.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

Starting pay is 21 cents team,42 cent split on all miles,or 33 cents solo,plus some bonus money.3 year old and newer trucks. Plenty of miles..big pay per mile means nothing if your sitting waiting on loads.Id rather be running..

I drive for them now. Went solo in reefer after training. 27cpm for 120,000 miles then jumps to 33. You do a lot of waiting during live loads/unloads But the last 3 weeks I've gotten 2600, 2500 and 2400. I had a 1900 mile week, but it was cut short due to home time.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

I went to school thru Celadon and spent all total about 15 months with them.

I started off making 27 cpm till my 120,000 miles were done then I went to 33 cpm.

Shortly there after I move to another company.

I was lucky in the 15 months there if I got 2000 miles in one week.

I have had paychecks of 100 dollars to just over 500. And that was a very long week.

I sat for days and days waiting on a load.

Each company hauls freight and that is their job. Each company has different ways of doing things but moving freight is their jobs.

You have to find a company that fits you and what you like. But in my opinion and my opinion only. I would not recommend Celadon to anyone.

Keep it safe out here, the life you save might be your own.
