    Yeah I ran it , only do the program that pays you dead head also or go percentage. I ran it for 2 weeks just to test it out and it wasn't for me , felt like a company driver with no pre plan . I was expecting to have pre planned loads and put alot of miles on the road . You can make money for sure but be prepared for dead head , the loads are light and most the trailers were newer so that was a plus .

    They keep sending us emails thats all i got. They did have a family dollar account out of rome ny. 300 to unload the trailer (rollers) 25 stop off and 2.10 a mile. Cant say I've saw any owner ops doing store deliveries

    I was almost ready to test it out myself some time ago but I was somewhat disappointed with their recruiting people promising access to the load board to see what lanes and rates were available...to have a feel for that project but they never did. I wanted to try their percentage program where you pick your own loads.
    When I signed all the paperwork ready to give it a shot, they changed their attitude and said they need to take me on their dispatch program first. I refused the change of plan feeling quite swindled.
    Also those people from the recruiting office sounded like those factoring or insurance solicitors...a guy there told me that I can average over 2 dollars per mile on all miles which for Power Only would not be bad.

    Lately, they were sending e mailes stating that they offer 1.80 c per mile.
    I think they are trying to recruit as many people as they can as their turn over rate is just as high as with their drivers. If it was such a good deal, the available places would have filled up long time ago and everyone would just line up to fill out their application.

    They did the same routine with me, and I stopped taking their calls .

    You could lease on here and pick your loads from whoever you want? I have access to new trailers if you need one.
