    Equine excrement.

    I cannot find what their starting pay on their web site but I really, really doubt it's this low.

    I don't drive for CFI but I've heard some pretty good things about them. However, I do hear a lot of whining from so-called experienced drivers on here about their (and just about every other "starter company's") alleged low pay.

    So tell me, driver: How much (per mile) should a freshly-minted, Class A CDL holding OTR van driver pulling ordinary, everyday freight be paid before y'all don't consider it to be ridiculously low?

    pay different for every driver in CFI are u solo or team. Well from what I know the miles are like around 2200 low end to 3200 high end and pay starts our at 26 cents I think then goes up after training for solo drivers. If u have your hazmat u will get more money and there a lot of accessory pay on top of your regular pay so sum weeks good and bad kinda hard to judge weekly pay.

    I read something about a new drop yard in Sanford Florida too where we can leave our trucks on time off...? I’m from Orlando so this would work well for me. Can anyone actually confirm it’s existence.

    I’d like to hope that since I’m willing to be out for up to like three months at a time they’d be happy to hook me up with as many miles as I can handle... I hope so anyways. I really don’t wanna drop below 2500 at worst case scenario.

    There is a new drop yard in Sanford. I have never been there but I presume you can park there when you're on home time. If you want to know for sure ask a recruiter.

    You might ask the reqruiter if they can check on where we go in Orlando since we don't use the XPO terminal any more... just a thought. Pretty sure if the recruiter wants you, they will do what's necessary to answer your question.

    Lol they just keep going to the same old “well the driver can take the truck
    Home with them and do whatever they like” train of thought. Idk maybe I’ll try asking if they can help with that. I can’t find much info on google.
