    I don't think anyone can guarantee that, even if the avg is 50k (doubt it). but can you? I bet its possible but very unlikely, even for awhile into it... most accnts/companies give better routes to people that are there the longest or at least to ppl who have proven themselves.

    hopefully someone who has experience on the accnt will reply..i would ask other drivers what they have heard and go on that, likely there is high turnover due to low pay and there being a lot of physical labor and waiting around.

    well you need to drive atleast 150k miles to get there in a year we do the math and to make that much money you need atleast 3k miles a week which unless your dispatch loves you and you dont take any hometime ever you can make it

    U might if u can work hard and fast and drive hard for your first year out. But like they said if u can prove to ur dispatch u can run hard and take any challenge they throw and do favors. They will hook u up with some really good runs.

    I make over 60k doing FD for Werner. I was a trainer so I made 1200 to 1800 a week. A solo dr can expect to make 50 to 55k.

    Realistically, only as a trainer. No matter how hard your willing to work, there is still limits of what is given to you or what is available. There are slow periods.
