    My slip seat driver recently quit, I'm thinking about taking his place on the day shift running pump loads. I'll make a lot more money doing that.


    On a side note, I really wish our company had owner ops, that fire to own my own rig still burns with great fury inside me haha

    Now that I got a taste for nights it would be hard to go back plus they pay us more for it. I still get the bug myself sometimes but then I remember I live in California lol.

    I'd make about an extra $200/week if I were to go become a pump driver. Even with losing night pay by going to days I'd make more than I do now. I'm still playing with the idea.


    Yeah cali isn't a good place to start out as an owner op I imagine lol

    Good for you DrtyDiesel! I drove a heating oil straight truck for a few months some time ago. I never got used to the tank surge at stop lights and such. My first time on ice was another story by itself............darn truck wanted to keep inching forward after I set the brakes. I was wondering if it would ever stop. :biggrin_25523: I have a lot of respect for you folks who do it in a semi.
     
    Dinomite and DrtyDiesel Thank this.

    Thanks! Luckily in florida we don't have to deal with ice too often. I'm not sure if I'd want to do this in the north haha

    Yeah I ran 12 hours and did 4 loads while my slip seat driver ran 8 hours, 3 loads and made about $30 more that day than I did. Not all my loads would be pump loads but some would. And when you have a pump load split with another pump that's $55 in accessory pay added on top of what the load pays. So you can rack up money left and right
     
    Bigdaddy00 and Drew352 Thank this.
