    Thanks I tried to do research on all but people don't really tell you and all the posts are general what I consider good for me might not be good for you and everything is relative people might have other problems like bad record or something all these details make the difference you know that

    People always talk smack about PTL which i don't understand. I mean they tell straight up .17 a mile while in phase 1&2 complete that then go to your own truck. It seems all there trucks are decent with APU's. Seems like a ok place to start your driving career get experience and move on. Some people expect to much i would be prepared to get 2000 to 2500 a week nothing to get rich on take that 6 months to a year and get with a better all around company. It seems a lot of new drivers that go to PTL expect the world another perk is they rarely run northeast. I been considering them myself but if i did go there it would be to put time in and move on use them just like they would me. Its a OTR company starter company at that plus they give folks with a not so perfect past a 2nd chance. But would do i know nothing. I would like to hear from some PTL guys that currently drive for them. Some folks must be doing pretty good there there FB page has a lot of drivers with 100000 200000 1000000 safe miles awards. So some folks are driving making some money instead of getting Sh&^ on all day like a lot of people say. Not saying the op is lying but with 1000 drivers it must be good for some folks.

    Sorry, but you done this to yourself. I know this isn't what you want to hear, but it's the truth; I suggest you chalk this up as a valuable lesson to always work the numbers first before you sign anything!

    What is tuition he speaks of like the money they told him they would reimburse for school or something. .2 cents goes to tuition so you only get 15 cent is that what it is?

    That's the new hustle, you can't catch experienced drivers with the truth! The newest cruel hustle is: sweet marketing flyers/lying ### recruiters and eager inexperienced/ CDL holders/seekers; pay attention to the fine print it's reason the contracts are 23pages or better. Don't put your expectations into Pseudo-Marketing flyers/recruiters....it's all marketing tactics for their commissions!

    So when you get to phase 2 and you and your co driver are doing say 3300 a week that seems reasonable for team on the low end should be more but just using that at 15 cent a mile that would be 495 and heck you might have even ran close to 3800 4000 on team driving thats not terrible till you get your on truck. But hey everybody needs to do whats best for them. Goodluck to you hope you find a good company.

And I'm going to get 150$ fine?? There was so much craziness that to be honest I don't think it's true becouse it's pretty hard to believe

    I thought they had driver parking and you must not be able to take the truck home till you go solo
