    thanks. having my weekends was important to me. but being home almost every night, was a bonus. this came at the right time because I was supposed to leave out tuesday afternoon of next week.

    I wasn't too keen on having to go back over the road, or run as a team AND not having my weekends off. I was pretty open to learning the in's and out's of running doubles, but I am not going to to lose any sleep over not doing it.

    but things work out how they're supposed to. I'm just thankful to have a job at this point, considering all I have been through.

    the flatbed job didn't work out too well. just wasn't for me.

    Started with a FedEx contractor about 6 weeks ago. so far so good. pay is excellent. $1100-$1300 a week, paid every Friday. getting about 4300-4900 miles a week (as a team) depending on the route with some smart post and home delivery stops thrown in for extra money. There were 4 different routes. Denver to St. Peters, MO, Chicago, IL, Phoenix, AZ, Amarillo, TX and back.

    I am starting a new solo dedicated route on Tuesday. Denver to Wamsutter, WY and back. the cpm drops a little bit but the mileage goes up, so there isnt much difference in pay. It's 2830 miles per week, and $1160 salary per week. Can't complain. Plus i get Saturday afternoons through Monday nights off so now I can go to Sunday and Monday football games. :)

    nope. My taxes get taken out and I get a w-2 at the end of the year. I am an employee of the contractor.

    Congrats on your new job. We hired on with a great contractor 3 months ago, and we love fedex. It suits our needs, and we get to be home 3 days every week! We got tired of being on the road for weeks at a time, missed home.

    We run out of Chattanooga, to Rialto, then back to Atlanta every week.
     
    X-Country Thanks this.
