    Jealous?

    Don't be.

    When you start out in cryo -- it's likely you will get the least desirable shifts. So you will likely be doing nights, weekends...& holidays.

    The better shifts go to the drivers who have put in the time for others further up the food chain to retire out.

    You may be a night owl for quite a while.

    They are also very strict with safety procedures.

    Driver-facing cameras are pretty much standard fare with all the private cryo carriers.

    It takes a certain kind of driver to survive & thrive in an environment that regimented.

    Smart move not rebuilding engine if it’s a DD15 .. Boss says he will never rebuild one again. He’s dropped used engines in or bought factory remans .. so many rebuilds fail under 250 k for the DD15 it seems .

    I did the same thing years ago .
    Had some issues and just decided to take a break from trucking and try something different.

    If you don’t like the different thing , you can always come back to what you were doing .
    For me it wasn’t switching to a company driver , I was just so burned out as an O/O that I sold my rig and got a normal 9-5 Monday thru Friday job with a steady paycheck.

    My nephew does heavy haul as a company driver for a small regional company and he loves it .
    He averages .89 cents a mile and earned $97k last year . Home every weekend , drives a brand new W-900 that belongs to the company so all the maint and repairs and compliance paperwork is someone else’s responsibility.

    when he’s off , he’s off .
    the drivers at his company get two weeks paid vacation and usually get 3 to 5 weeks unpaid time off when business is slow ,
    They get paid a percentage but the company won’t take loads below a certain amount , so if it’s not going to pay good , they don’t even crank the truck.
    The owners would rather have the driver and trucks stirring at home , than working for free or close to it .



    Not his truck to worry about and work on , so he goes hunting or fishing or works on one of his vintage cars .

    If anybody knows a place I can get $3+ all miles on 2500+ miles a week let me know and maybe I'll get another truck lol.

    Was just last winter I had no problem getting those numbers.
    Now flatbed has reached Van level rates, sometimes even less.

    Some drivers can't be picky.
    No company pays me.

    Even in my own current position of desperate need for work I wouldn't go work for them. The pay thing was a joke lol

    Highest paying company?
    With the new CA Fast Food minimum wage, McDonalds is moving up the list.

    Cost of living negates the minimum wage.
