    You can't afford to wait when you aren't paid right. I wait just about every day for a load. Some days, I get them while I'm on break. The average break between loads is about 12-14 hours after a 300-475 mile load. If it's shorter they try to put two loads together. Running like this I'll make right around $70k. That is at 56cpm base rate plus bonuses. I'm at 56cpm through longevity with my cap still out of reach.

    Depends on the rate you qualify for and if you stay out 2 weeks at a time. Home every weekend is about 56K-60K first year. Lots of raises. Lots of running at night. Lots of short loads.

    I got tired of Amazon, and running at night with a truck that had optimized idle. I thought it would be better than waking up in a truck with no bunk power and not being able to idle without sitting in the driver seat. I was wrong.

    Better call them. They got rid of Florida regional. Then they finally decided to get a terminal in Jacksonville. Leads me to believe they are planning a push into outbound Amazon. Hope it works out for them. Everyone else is wise to what Amazon is doing down there now.

    The weekly miles depend on the fleet you are in. Home weekly 1800-2000. Home every other week 1900-2100. Out longer 2200-2500.

    The rate per mile is excellent as are the bonuses and time off. This is because they run short profitable loads. It's a good business model except they choose lanes that typically run at night that no one wants to do. It is difficult to string short loads together and generate miles.

    That being said the pay is typically higher at the end of the year at Barr Nunn than at other carriers even though BN drivers run less miles.

    Yes, they take the truck home.

    I was there 8 years. I was happy till I got an automatic with opti idle. Should have been a stick with an APU.
