    I got a call from a recruiter about a new dedicated with Werner. I told them prior I wasn't gonna go into a meat grinder with Family Dollar especially with their pay. They said they have a new dedicated with Starbucks that's 75% drop and hook and the rest live unload. 12.50 hour with overtime and 16 CPM regional running Cali, Oregon, Nevada and Arizona. Home weekly new trucks with inverters etc, etc. Sounds okay... but I wanted to know if its just them blowing smoke up my ###... I got 2 years on me with a clean record... I don't want to jeopardize that cause some sweet talking recruiter got me convinced to go into a different kind of meat grinder.. any info would be greatly appreciated!

    This is a joke right! Ha ha.
    12.50 an hour and 16 cpm.
    The mega's can't possibly be getting away with
    Those wages in 2019.
     
    Davezilla and DetroitDiesel93 Thank this.

    I get what you guys are saying i also thought the same thing before I broke down the pay. They pay all on duty and driving and when at shipper and consignee regardless of designation. So even at 11 hours a day without the overtime thats more than 2,750 a month and the .16cpm @2500 average thats 1600 a month so 4350 a month isnt half bad on the low side.. I get local guys making 22+ an hour but here in socal I cant seem to find a local gig that offers more than 16 with my 2 years experince. Im just looking for info on the route and if anyone had any insight.

    It's a 600 dollar a week job.
    For your 70/80 hours of work.
    You can crunch the numbers anyway you want.

    You don't get 12.50 an hour and 16 cpm
    While driving.
    It's 16cpm for the driving,
    Then 12.50 an hour while loading/ unloading trucks.

    And don't believe anything they tell about
    What percent is drop and hook.
    There gonna lie to you.
    And don't assume your gonna get overtime.
    They might pay you all straight time.

    So let's break this into 2 pieces.

    Would you do local work loading/ unloading
    Trucks for 12.50 an hour in a 18 wheeler ?
    Not only no,but hell no.

    Would you do regional work up and down
    I-5 in a 18 wheeler for .16cpm.
    Not only no,but hell no.

    There getting you at half the going wage
    On both ends.
    And you still only get 1 day at home a week.
    You should be insulted they ever called you
    About it.

    FYI:
    Anytime a mega has a dedicated account with
    A big corporation,you not gonna make a lot
    Of money.
    They've bid so low to get it,there's nothing left
    For you.

    Hence the 12.50 an hour and 16 cpm.
    There so embarrassed about that themselves
    That they won't even advertise it.

    They'll find some rookies who don't know
    Any better and grind them to a pulp for 4 or 5
    Months, then throw another one on it.
    Just like they do the family dollar account.

    Thats absolutely terrible pay. You can easily get near twice that.

    Go to Crete. Their average is almost twice that.

    Thats how much students make at companies like Prime and Crete. Students.

    yeah i wouldnt buy the new trucks with inverters. thats a gimmick. half the fleet dont have inverters (despite the fact they been around for what 20 years now?) my grandfather drove for Cal-Ark and he had an inverter....he passed away in 2000 or 01 i believe.
    thats not a horrible pay package, its insulting if you ask me. even a rookie is worth more than that bs

    Thanks for the feedback I asked the recruiter to break down everything in detail and send it to me in an email. (Was Gonna share what she put here) Never heard back from her. Im assuming she was blowing smoke up my ###.
