    Y'all stay safe out there, we're under a "stay at home" order here in California. 891 cases and 117 deaths.

    Like slavery..but worse...lowest paying crooks on the planet..lasted one week.
    Truck breaks down..they put money on your pay card..for hotel..then take it from your wages..pays $50 a day..breakdown..lmfao
    Headlight goes out..they want you to wait in line at ta...bought a bulb..replaced myself..wouldnt reimburse me..wouldnt send me PO..
    Trucks have nothing..not even an inverter so I can plug in my shaver..slow trucks..lose 20 mph every hill...I could go one..just don't do it..

    Man, reading through the thread, liking everything I am seeing and then it ends with the above. :eek:

    So what's the scoop here?. How much do they pay to start?. Is it the same for a fresh out of school rookie and a 10 year experienced driver?. I get that the big money plasma loads are team only, but what about linehaul?

    I am interested in them mainly because the Dundee terminal is within striking distance of my house so would be ideal to leave the truck there and drive my car home for hometime.
     
    Upinsmoke Thanks this.

    I started at 45 cents no experience with kllm; 1 cent increase per year of verifiable experience. Website lists 10+ at 55 cents. Only the plasma run requires teaming at FFE.

    Older trucks tend to be ####; I started in a 2016, but after being broke down for a week; I received a 2020. Newer ones come with inverters and fridges.
