    .31cpm to share a sleeper with another human in this market is ####.

    Then again, some people thrive on having company.

    Yeah, I remember when TransAm was a 2nd chance company.
    Really cracked down the past 3 or so years.

    Pretty similar with my last company to crst pay rates, but I got put on a dedicated account the past few months and got paid decent bit more than average for the company.

    First 6 months was terrible with it being .30 cpm first 3 months, then .35 after that . Also had one really terrible truck September - December that kept me constantly in the shop.

    Wild west express is desperate for drivers. They keep begging me to come back even after all my reviews of them. They might take you.

    My cousin was on a Walmart dedicated out of Grandview Washington with Western Express. That's not a bad dedicated account

    I thought about that one also; does Wild West Express still require 6 mos. experience? Used to require 3 yrs. experience, then a recent ad has 6 mos experience.
    Anyway, Chef$$$ already found a job.
