    Fyi just putting this out there. Starting 9/11 kllm has a new pay package for company OTR with a minimum of 6 months experience hire on at 40cpm with 1cpm raise every year for 10 years cap out at 50cpm. New lease and dedicated packages coming in January. Not to mention our lease operators have been using the new load board the last few months..js

    Refresher is not something to stress over. If you know alot from previous trucking, a refresher will be good to find the rust you got and remove it.

    If I had to go today I'll cheerfully do the refresher, I already know where I am a little shaky on, such as the mandatory breaks in the HOS that never existed in my time for example. We dont do breaks lol.

    I've always wondered what would happen if they tried to schedule you for the lease program information class and you said "I already know I'm not interested so there's no reason for me to attend." But I guess if it's part of a paid training class, I might as well sit there and listen. Might actually learn something more about what I know I don't want to do.
    I envision them taking drivers into a room one at time after the class and pressuring them to sign the lease papers, picking your brain by making you explain why you don't want to do it. I sure hope it's not like that. They should just do the class and say at the end, "if you're interested, come talk to us."
    I met a Volvo driver once who said it was his truck and he leased it back to the company he drove for, which sounds different than a driver leasing the company's truck. Don't know about how that works, but I haven't seen or heard of that anywhere else. Would like to know more about it. If leasing means paying for the company's truck, then leasing your truck to them should mean they're paying for YOUR truck. That sounds a lot better, like owning rental property where renters pay for your house instead of renting, where you pay for the landlord's house.
