    $0.49 starting out, with the potential for bonuses (which sound attainable from this thread) along with extra pay for hazmat loads sounds really good, along with their very lenient unlimited home time policy. If you don't mind, I have a few questions:

    1. I'm in the Charlotte area, I read on this thread that you guys have a terminal or a drop lot in Greensboro, NC? Where are your other terminals and drop lots other than the Fargo/Greensboro NC one?

    2. I read on this thread that you guys fuel at Pilot and Flying J. Is that still correct? No fueling at Loves (that's where I like to fuel and shower)? Are the fuel stops mandatory or can you fuel anywhere, as long as it's the approved fueling chain?

    3. It was mentioned all trucks come with APU's and inverters, do they come with a fridge or no? XM radio or anything like that?

    4. Someone mentioned they never feel rushed with the loads here - How tight do they run your load schedules? For example, do you have to start your clock every single day when your 10 hour break is up? I usually stay out for 1 month at a time and run on recaps, though I would prefer a 34 midway through the month, but that said I get too burnt out if I'm having to start my clock when my 10 is up each day. I don't mind doing it some days out of the week, but in normal circumstances I like to have 3-4 days where I take an 11 or 12 hour break before I start my day.

    5. What would you estimate the drop/hook versus live load/live unload percentage is?

    6. I think I read on this thread that they normally don't send you past New Jersey - Is this correct? What states do you guys run do you ever go out West? Or are your lanes the same as what's on the "Open Positions" map on the company website: Open Positions - Magnum Companies

    7. On that company website map Open Positions Map, how are the dotted cities different than the Magnum OTR hiring area on the map? Do those cities have terminals or something?

    8. Last but certainly not least, how many years or miles do Magnum keep their trucks before they trade them in for new ones? How often does the company usually buy new ones and do they do it where they'll just buy a whole new fleet of new ones all at once, or is it like a steady and consistent slow trickle?

    I can answer some of your questions trucks have a fridge was my requirement for a new company. No xm it's on there but you got to pay for it. Fueling as long it's a pilot or flying j but no matter what if you needing fuel while in ND or MN you have to go to the terminal so get fuel before entering the state for the points. The dots don't represent terminal. As far as long they keep the trucks I don't know I got different things so I gave up but I believe it's no more than 400,000. Anything above NJ we're not permitted for those states. I don't know the drop lots because I haven't been to them only because I have no idea about amenities for driver. The loads I have had some loads that pretty much need to be rolling exactly at 10 but yeah for the most part it's got a pretty good window. I always try to get within range a day early to get my transit pay of 150 bucks so roll at my 10 for the most part because I'd rather stage closer and take a longer break closer. It's mostly been live for me had some drop and hook. Heck I've had my current trailer over a month now. Which I prefer if it's a working trailer lol. I have only been here 3 months but #### this company has been good to me. This is my first time OTR all of my previous 2 years experience has been regional. Most from jb hunt and this place is night and day of treatment. My previous bonus got me 832. So they're reachable. One thing though if you ever need work done on truck don't go coon rapids shop they're trash. For example I needed my steering wheel adjusted he didn't want to do it because and I quote"it's to hard" always try to get to fargo shop I've had better luck. Other than that I have been enjoying this company. I'm currently on my home time for Christmas that got approved #### near instantly. At that time I was going over 2 months out
