I have a difficult time talking too much to other drivers because too many are nothing but talk.
Some of the biggest complainers I've met are the drivers that have been with a company the longest.
My BS meter stays on full alert all the time.ncmickey and I like manuals Thank this.
After all, I don't own the company, so have the option to put up with whatever or move on to something better.Anywhichwaybutloose, JoeTruck and bryan21384 Thank this.

I don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind being corrected or giving some advice if it’s needed. But there’s a difference.
that said, the difference in pay of 20 to 30,000 per year also talks to me. Lol
my sanity is worth somewhere in between those two numbers I think. Lmao
I'd say across the board average for a 3 year driver is about 55-57 cpm . Sometimes companies will inflate that cpm if you say you are leaving for pay. I'd say try to get 1350$ a weekgentleroger Thanks this.

Remember the guy getting .55cpm or more is hauling the same loads as the guy making .40cpm. Only thing different is the profit margin for the company.
There's nothing wrong with a company paying as little as possible to maximize their profits. It's just business. But right now with the lack of workers there is nothing wrong with a driver demanding a higher wage. It is after all just business.

I’m home every night doing LTL city driving. Paid hourly, I gross $1600-$1900 a week. Consistently taking home around $1300 a week.
Pretty good I guess. But most who are hired for city driving don’t last, we have a high turnover rate once drivers figure out there’s actually work involved and you do touch freight.
I think @Lennythedriver should be making 80-90 k a year.Chinatown and Lennythedriver Thank this.
Shackdaddy Thanks this.
