    Hotel is nice enough. Free breakfast (waffles, sausage eggs and biscuits) & shuttle ride to and from school.
    There's a nice strip club a few blocks down :)

    Naw man. I never said that. I'm making $1,300 a week on average. There are raises & bonus opportunities infront of me. Last week I avg $.49cpm.

    I cruise 57mph. You're basically 100% WRONG LMAOOOOO

    So, let me ask this...

    I was contacted today by a recruiter at FFE that wants me to go through their KLLM school in Lancaster. The offer letter stated .40 cpm starting pay and the job is 100% LTL Linehaul, drop and hook at terminals.

    I've been reading a lot of reviews for Raider, I know people will generally only leave a review when they're mad, but there are a LOT of reviews saying that Raider demands that you doctor your logs and run illegal to get your miles. Is that even remotely true?

    Thanks for your replies.
     
    FlaSwampRat Thanks this.

    Not even close to true. I just completed a 3rd quarter safety module about logs. Raider Express is 100% about safety & staying within DOT law.

    As a matter of fact, they terminated multiple drivers last month for violations.
     
    FlaSwampRat Thanks this.

    1. 57 in a 75,70, or 65 is not cruising. 2. Unless you guys only traveled on divided highways 1050 take home is not enough to justify being FORCED to be a moving road block.

    How long did it take Raider to get back to you when you applied?

    I applied about a week ago, got an e-mail from what I assume was an office worker on Friday that said they'd be verifying work history and doing a background check.

    Since then, I've had several other companies reply and even had FFE schedule me for CDL training at the end of the month.

    Same here. I had to follow up with them a couple times. I was also self employed for 21 years so they couldn't verify my work history easily lol.
    I just followed up with a couple emails & phone call. It all worked out. Free CDL training & school is something that cannot be overlooked. Huge value!
