    Greetings! I am trying to apply logic and math to this guaranteed pay SE Regional opportunity KLLM is marketing. A recruiter told me the drivers in the SE are averaging 1,800 to 2,300 miles per week. The guarantee has two levels, one at 6 days ($1,325) and one at 7 days ($1,575). From a purely financial perspective, let's say a "mileage pay regional driver" runs 2,300 miles over the 7 days at 50 CPM. (328.5 miles per day at a rate kind of in the middle of the sliding scale). if my fingers and calculator are in sync, that means that driver earned $1,150 for the 7 days. The 7 day guarantee is $1575, assuming the driver has 14 hours available EACH DAY. If we assume that is likely or even possible, in our 2,300 mile example, the guarantee would average out to 68.47 CPM. The recruiter also mentioned that if the driver does NOT have a full 14 available each day, the pay would revert to the 6 day guarantee rate ($1,325), OR (!!) the sliding scale mileage rate for the region! (Which we just demonstrated to be --I think-- like $1,150 using the assumptions above). My questions....
    Are you regional SE folks really running 1,800-2,300 miles per week as a general rule? Is your average rate generally higher than 50 cents per mile? Also, what does an average week look like in terms of accessorial pay items? (Detention, layover, extra stops, other??) I feel like I am missing something here, or the guarantee thing is just marketing something no-one will ever see.
    Any input/clarification (useful and polite) is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance to all!

    Just look at the work week 6 or 7 days to make that moneyo_O:eek:. If you add the amount of hours per day it becomes 60-70 hrs a week. The money doesn't add up. They are not even offering $20. You have to be available for 14 hours per day that's even worst. I would move along there is nothing to consider here. There are a lot of better opportunities in trucking than having to work 6 or 7 days for that little bit of money depending on where you live & experience. :D

    I am looking at "refresher courses" as I have not driven in a number of years. KLLM has one, and regional opportunites afterward, which is good....but this SE regional thing seems very much "not worth it".

    10-4 that seems like the one Cr england runs up my way in Central PA. 12 hours days working 6 or 7 days for $20/hr basically. The warehouse work pays more up there & less of a headache. It is a local gig but I'm like 6 or 7 days who thought up that nonsense (burnout central). They wonder why they can't keep nobody

    I was offered a dedicated with a guarantee… the way they explained it to me is I’d get it as long as I was out the whole pay period, regardless of how many miles I ran.

    Ive spoken to Midwest regional and was under the impression it was the same. Only reason I didn’t switch to them is regionals run the lightweight trucks, and I’m not interested in downsizing trks.

    I eventually went to a different dedicated account, and while they didn’t call it a guarantee, they bump us to 2500mi a week if under.

    Our sister company, FFE, also has regional work.
