Excellent reefer company. Top notch equipment. All trucks have fridge, APU, and inverter. Little to none micromanagement. No New England, NY, California, south west. A lot of Midwest, Northwest, and South.
I'm a new driver. Within 8 months of working here I was making .50 per mile. Trucks are all blue Peterbilt. A couple trucks are different brand, but those are "experiments". Home time policy is basically go home as often as you want for as long as you want (within reason) and give 10 days notice prior. Very accommodating. New drivers to the industry start out at .36 per mile. Then we have performance pay, which is based on mileage, mpg, being on time, safety, tickets, etc. up to .50 cpm. You are reevaluated every 4 months. Hazmat is required and you get an extra .05 cpm on hazmat loads. In 8 months I've hauled 3 hazmat loads. I'm kept plenty busy. I averaged 3041 miles/week over my first 6 months.
Its a great company.. problems with dispatch, and load planners.. they will have you set on a load for 2 days and only pay you $75.00... In general I do make good money.. when im rolling..
Racist company. Very political. This is how Magnum seems to be getting their funding from the government and that’s how they have ok equipment. If you love trump this the company for you. The guy running the orientation will spend half the time talking about who knows what like about Trump, how crazy the left is and other jibberish. You’re civil rights will be violated at this company. This company states they have an open door policy, go find out for yourself what happens. You’ve been warned. I have proof of everything and plan on getting in touch with the ACLU.
I’ve been with Magnum just a bit over two years. If you’re going to be be driver running refrigerated freight this is one of the good companies to work for, IMHO. Communication is very good. The driver mangers and dispatch personnel are great people and as long as you act like a responsible adult they treat like one. The only people who have been rude or condescending to me are no longer with the company. Home time is easy to get as long as you give at least 10 days notice. I’ve averaged 2750 miles per week and my pay varies from 57.5 to 59.5 cpm depending on bonuses. The bonuses are easy to obtain if you're willing to drive smart and work hard. I rarely have extended wait times at customers, usually 1-3 hrs tops and we don’t travel CA, AZ, NV, NM, or North of PA. (Rare FL runs). The equipment is all late model Peterbilt 579s (a few frieghtliners) well maintained and equipped with APUs, Inverters and fridges. My take home pay averages just over $1200 / week. My only complaint is being governed at 64mph.
