    I'm debating on finding a new OTR or regional company to drive for once I get 12 months. I've currently been with the mega I'm with now for 9 months. I hate changing jobs, and I like the company I drive for now. But the pay is not there. I'm on track to end the year at 49 to 51K. I can get a pay small bump, but probably only make 55K in year 2.

    So I'm not sure which direction I should go. I would need to get everything on my must have list to even consider the company, otherwise I'd just stay where I am now.

    Any suggestions on companies that sound like a fit would be appreciated.

    Me:
    - No traffic violations.
    - No accidents or incidents.
    - No criminal history.
    - Only one other job in the past 20 years.

    Must have all this (or it's not worth moving):
    - 65K or better.
    - No driver camera.
    - 65 mph
    - Limited northwest or northeast. I'd prefer to run south, southwest, southeast, midwest.
    - The company should have good driver reviews.
    - I'm local to Clark county, NV, Mohave county, AZ area.

    Marten transport, a reefer company has the 11 western fleet, apu on truck, automatic., and they pay pretty good. Terminals in AZ, Cali, oregon on the left coast. Stay out 10 days then do restart at home.

    For some reason I was thinking they had driver cams. I’ll add them to my research list. 65k + not an issue? Plus is better.

    50k is pretty good for your first year considering you had training and I am sure you probably run more effeciently now than you did your first 4 months.
    Are you sure you are only looking at 55 for your next year?
    Also remember that this has been a weird year.
    What sector are you in? Dry van , reefer ?
    Do you mind mentioning what company you are with ?

    Reefer 90%, some dry drop and hooks. I stay out 2 plus months at a time. My months have actually been fairly consistent except May was a low mileage anomaly. I’m estimating 55k based on standard raise and current mileage.
