Mr. Truckdriver, it would be well worth checking into IMHO. Ya may wanna call and talk with our recruiter to see if you would be able to run it.
Deputy Chief, IDK anything about all that but if we're running an ad we must've picked up some stuff going/coming there. I know shortly after I started here I had a run going right into the Philly area that paid pretty doggone good.
The recruiting p.o.c. is Bob F.
I've been running really well between my psuedo-dedicated N.W. Canada I was running from Jan-April and now since we have this Orlando deal going. Then on top of that I've been popping the monthly bonus like clockwork for an extra $300 (keep barely missing the cutoff for 400 lol). So there is definitely good money to be made here as long as you can make the system work for you and things fall into place for you, the individual driver.
But, time to get back to work after good, long block of time off, and most likely going to stay out until I take my vacation in the last half of July. If you guys have any questions that recruiting cannot answer don't hesitate to contact me, I will help out however possible.
Y'all be safe out there and have fun!

Superior was a good place when I was there, that is undisputable. Just that with where I'm at in my life and what I want and need, here works out much better and without certain silly stuff. Still a great company, but not my cup of tea anymore, especially not with what I have here.
Here's a refresher concerning the benefits and base starting pay here (based on a driver with the minimum qualifications). I hope this will help answer questions about things here.
-Hiring Requirement: 2 years O.T.R., with 1 year minimum chemical tanker experience.
-Starting Pay: 25% of gross line-haul revenue.
-Load/Unload Pay: $18 first two hours, then $18/hour.

-Canadian border crossing pay (loaded): $50.
-Layover Pay: $80/day.
-Monthly Bonus Pay: $100-400.
If earned, bonus is paid mid-month, every month, and dependent upon criteria of miles driven, fuel economy (6+ mpg), idle %, overspeed/excessive speed, over RPM %, sudden starts/stops, log compliance, and general safety.
*To simplify things, if you run between 7,500-9,999 miles and score an "A" you'll get $300 for that month, score a "B" get $200.
10,000+ miles with an "A" gets $400 for that month, a "B" gets $250.
-Holiday Pay: $144 for seven holidays ($18/hour x 8 hours).
-Vacation Pay (after 1 year, paid hourly rate x 8 hours/day):
Years 1-9: 14 days.
Years 10+: 19 days.
-Orientation/Training Pay: $18/hour for all on-duty hours.

TCH @ Pilot/Flying J.
-Cash Advances: $200/week.
-Tolls: Anything not covered by EZ Pass/I-Pass is reimbursed.
Now onto negatives here concerning the pay; when you pick up a tank that was pre-loaded by another driver for you to deliver or, you drop a loaded tank that another driver delivers, you get $25 deducted from that load per occurrence.
Also, there is no tank wash pay as usually you will drop the dirty tank, hook to a clean one, and roll out for your next load.
Hope this answers some questions. Y'all be safe, more later...
