    Absolutely and like you say it comes down to the business model and the customers needs. At knight I would run out my clock constantly and always do a 34 hour restart. This is somewhat different and I imagine the planners are constantly struggling with making things work.

    Last week I did three loads in sunny Georgia. The first load had 4 drops and took five days. (1100 miles) The next load was two drops in three days. (550 miles) The pay is the same as if I ran the required 2500 miles. Which during my time waiting for loading and unloading I have gained a substantial amount of hours.
    Almost seems like a win win because next week I will be able to run at least 10 hours for four days.

    Nah. They only pay detention at a shipper after 24 hrs. Receiver is after 3 hours.

    You won't be home on the weekends. You'll be out minimum of 3 weeks. They will make you do 8/2 splits and will berate you over the phone if you complain of fatigue. Also, they'll never send directions/instructions over the omni only over the phone so there isn't a paper trail.

    Be forewarned and prepared.
     
    Bud A. and Lonesome Thank this.

    Maverick does just that with $1k guaranteed. But there are some caveats:
    Mandatory CPAP and usage
    You go home loaded
    That load is ALWAYS due Monday by 1000

    So if you got home on say Saturday 1700 and that load is 600 miles away...
     
    Bud A. Thanks this.

    They DON'T fudge your numbers... they have YOU call logs to have any on duty not driving or off duty time changed to sleeper so you've technically completed an 8/2.
     
    Bud A. Thanks this.

    50 cpm is what they say with a 4 or 6 cpm per diem.

    How do they handle you cussing and screaming and name calling over the phone

    You have to approve your logs. Learn how to say NO.

    Why would you do it? You know it is a violation and incorrect. What would make you put your livelihood at risk?
     
    Bud A. and Lab work Thank this.
