    Hey There Drivers,
    Looking for any information you all could share with me. I’ve been driving about 3 years now and am looking for a change. I’m looking to continue OTR and would like to join a carrier that covers all 48 states. To me, finding the proper fit means more than just cpm. These are the carriers that are at the top of my list so far...

    Meiborg- Great equipment with good miles. They have a salaried program right now 3 week out OTR, flat $75,000 annual
    Merx Global- nice newer Volvo’s. .50cpm. A little concerned because I can’t find much driver feedback on them
    Sharky- great benefits, free healthcare for family and .54cpm, but older trucks. Have a long history
    Nussbaum- Great reviews, never heard a bad thing about them. Everything hung sounds great about the company, Except cpm, .40 to start. Recruiter says with all bonuses and pay factored in, drivers are averaging $1,000-$1,2000 per week

    I’m looking to settle in and find my long term home. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you all and be safe
     
    Coffey Thanks this.

    Have you actually talked to any of the current drivers at these companies? That's the only way to sift through the recruiters lies and b.s. and get the real picture.

    Agreed. Unfortunately the only one where I spoke to a driver is Nussbaum. Short of striking up conversations at truck stops not sure how else to reach out to them. That’s why I’m trying my luck in the forums. Hoping to find drivers with experience or insight beyond what I have

    Some have Facebook pages. I use "Bing" for searches, but you can also use "Google" if you prefer.

    If your in the Midwest, I work for a Midwest regional carrier. They hire out of the Midwest states. Usually average 2,700-3,000 miles a week, and still back for weekend off time. No touch freight. Dry van company, mostly drop and hook. If you or anyone else is further interested, send a PM.
