    i have been with arnold for 2 1/2 months and i can honestly say that they are not bad. i have been running any were from 22,000-26,500 a week all my checks range from 880,00-920,00 a week. the only problem that i have been running into is bad dispatch loads. mostly those CONWAY, loads my DM. is new and she's been running me crazy.. i run north east region i don't like the auto truck's and us express have there name all over the paper work my truck broke down and i got back in 2 day's ARONLD don't mess around when it come's to break down.it make take 2week's to get that break down pay. but they will put you in a hotel of your choice while your truck is getting worked on.

    this only my experience with ARONLD. i can not speak for no one else. just for today. i havent been home yet cause of the miles i have been getting i have been out there for 9weeks with no home time my DM, ask me all the time;WHEN ARE YOU GOING HOME???? so im taking my first home time in 9weeks 5/27-6/4. i was able to bank 4grand running long weeks out.

    if you dont mind auto trucks then you may want to check ARNOLD out.there working for me.. JUST FOR TODAY........

That pay sucks! I make $1000+ and go home every night. If im going to live in a truck pay will need to be $1350+ every week or it aint happening.

    I think your mileage is in error.

    How do I do what? $1000+ a week and home every night? I get paid hourly. $17.77 hr. straight time, $26.66 hr time and a half. Ialso get time and a half after 8hrs, so if i need to take a day off I dont lose my OT for the other days. I only need 51 hrs. to make $1000. As far as $1350+ to live in a truck you dont see it happing so you dont see me livin in the truck!

    I'm sleeping in the truck because it comes with o.t.r. trucking.. if i were able to be home every night then that's not o.t.r. trucking,, i'm a local driver!!! and i should of said i make $920.00 a week.after taxes...so to have to sleep in my truck every night doe'snt bother me for $920.00 week..I'm from NYC, i hit so many local company's if i was able to be a local driver i would be doing it but because the way the economy is there not hiring local..so o.t.r. is were it at for me for now!!! and,ARNOLD,,, is not a bad company to work for o.t.r. they don't stress me no forced dispatch, they get me home when i put in for home time. not bad...

    Yes your milage is very wrong!!!!!!!!!!! 19,000 to 28,000 a week!!!!!!! Thats 2 months worth of miles in a week!!!!!!!!! If you drove 167 MPH for every hour in a week,
    168, you could run 28,000 mile a week. You got a rocket straped 2 your ###?

    Drop some of your zeros and it might be believable.

    In order to do 28000 miles in a 70 driving week, doing the driving only, no fuel, pti or any other nonsense, your truck would have to drive 400 mph.
