    So you make $1,175 for 3.5 months and they supposedly have a bonus paid three weeks after the month you earn it have failed to see that yet cause not been here that long. But to get the big $1000 to $1500 bonuses otr drivers won't get. max miles you will see a week is 3,000 and need 14,000 to 15,000 for max bonuses.

    How many other companies have you worked for in, say, the last 18 months?

    You should take pictures of the truck ( inside and out) that you're assigned and save them. Anytime you report damage found on equipment, make sure you take a picture, and get the name of the person you reported it to. Keep a record of the equipment number, date, time and location.

    I saw them on a different thread when researching kb transportation and looked at their website and seemed very good. Guess when too good to be true usually is.

    The Holland Brothers. A lot of these company's nowadays are very good at posting rosy stories on social media. It looks like all kumbaya and ra-ra-sis-coom-ba. But it ain't lol. I flew myself into Mapleton for an interview. In the middle of a North Dakota winter. Back then they used those outside stairs to de plane passengers. I live in a nice warm climate. They opened the door on that airliner and all that freezing cold artic wind slammed into my face. I was immediately like "Oh Hell No Way!" You could also smell cow poop. I went into the terminal. Bought another one way ticket direct flight back home. And left Fargo. Never been back:)
