    I'm starting to see ads that companies will pay up to $14k a week for O/O drivers. Anyone have any info on this or is it just some click bait crap to get you to apply for that job. Cause for that kind of money I'll quit my job and lease my own truck for a chance to gross $700k per year.

    It depends what trailer, type of operation, etc. It’s possible to have a week like this once in a blue moon. You won’t be consistently making $14k every week, no matter what trailer and what company promises. Your range from the topic title is what you could be seeing consistently before any expenses are being deducted or carriers cut. Only if you dedicate all of your time though, drive off your logbook hours every time and spend weekends on truck stops instead of home.

    My husband and I are fairly new independent operators. We have been running power only loads for the last 5 weeks and we’ve made 10,000 each week. That’s our goal when we set out and it usually takes 4 -5 days we’ve kept in under 4,000 miles and made 10,000.
