    It's like other people have said. If you show up and do a good job and show you're dependable, you'll be rewarded with better paying runs. I do remember you being frustrated at first, but it sounds like you found a home for now.

    Big dollars? More like good steady money, with the occasional big run.

    So I got my first verbal write up for speeding! I have made about 55k before deductions this year and I decided to slow down with the over the road stuff and this happen 400 miles deadhead to pick up a load that it wasn't worth it, I told them that a 2 stopper in Massachusetts in the middle of a snow storm was difficult and I had to make it home every night since I have to take care of my wife for a few weeks, they were not too happy about it. Also I have been talking to some other drivers and they tell me that instead of getting write ups they are getting charged for violations I think is like 50 dollars every week that they pass the threshold.

    So what I thought it was a urban legend like a chupacabra, a driver before elogs that didn't cheat on their logs. It's TRUE this morning I had the pleasure to deal with a quality carriers corporate terminal and after booking my loads for the week and my home load the lady asked me what percentage of the load I'm getting paid so I told them 62% she smile at me and told me if I worked for a corporate terminal they start me at 65 and get up to 70!, they were nice enough to preload my trailer while I did a load for them and threw an extra 125 for dropping a empty trailer at a customer I have to go anyways! Now I know where are the big money makers in qc (make 7k last week in 5 days but I can do better)

    I Hope this post isn't dead ......
    so i have a 2 questions

    1) are you using an LLC or your name as an O/O ?? and does QC take out taxes for you ? or do you have to

    2) do OTR O/O make more than regional or local drivers ?

    I don't work for QC, but I'll answer your questions.
    1- I personally have a Corp. Bring a one truck owner go either way, but at least have some protection and ability to write everything off. If you're an O/O they won't take anything out other then fuel, ins and any other money you owe QC. They will file your ifta, but other then that you're on your own for taxes.
    2- as a general rule, the otr guys will make more then the local guys. But it really depends on the terminal your at and how much work they have. I've always made good money running a combination of regional & local.
