    Sorry about your health, ARNI. I guess there's no downside to badmouthing ex-employers since you're retired but that's a pretty silly reason to get upset. It's a business.

    My question to the drivers who quite who gotten stuff on DAC did they give a notice of quitting or quite within days. Cause my brother and I, while working at JB Hunt I quit gave a month notice and he quite on the spot I didn’t get anything on my records while he did. I see to many driver just up right and quite without notice. Still doesn’t make it right for the company to do both parties in the wrong

    It’s been over 3 years. I hold no resentment. I’m far happier at my current job.

    That’s good. So far I’m far happier with magnum than my first 2 driving job hopefully my pay still keeps up. But always on the lookout for plan B but haven’t found anything else. The hometime is what drew me here minimum 3 weeks out I don’t need to get home often but the few times I’ve had to it’s great while others I’ve looked wants you for long stretches to only get a few days off

    Whats up Mick, I don’t recall you telling me about that. That blows. Glad you’re still doing well over there.

    I recently came across an add for Magnum on careersingear website. I asked on this thread before (you guys have always been real helpful with your answers for me in this thread) and someone told me that $70,000 was possible, depending on how I liked to run. The add is saying average $75,000 per year.

    This is what the add says:

    $3,000 Sign-On Bonus
    Paid Time Off
    Yes
    MAGNUM DRIVER’S AVERAGE ANNUAL INCOME IS $75,000 WITH OVER 15% OF DRIVERS MAKING $90,000 OR MORE!

    Benefits:

    Pays $0.49 - $0.52 CPM with additional benefits and up to $0.09 CPM monthly bonus
    Average $550 in monthly bonuses
    Average miles 2,500 - 3,300 weekly
    Average salary $75,000 (and more than 15% of our drivers make over $90,000)
    Consistent loads and miles
    Hassle-free dispatch, their job is to keep you rolling
    Average length of haul is 1,000 miles
    State of the art safety software
    New 2019 to 2022 Peterbilt Ultralofts and Freightliner Cascadias available to experienced drivers
    Growing fleet of new trucks
    Dedicated shop team to help keep drivers rolling nationwide
    Paid orientation and training (must already hold a Class A CDL)
    Weigh scale bypass and EZ Pass
    $3,000 sign-on bonus
    401(k) with company match
    Flexible home time
    Free employee health insurance
    Experienced drivers and trainees (minimum age is 22)
    Passengers and pets allowed (pet allowed after orientation, passenger after 90 days)
    100% no-touch freight
    Magnum maintains a fleet of new equipment with the average age of the tractor and trailer is 2 years old
    ALL TRACTORS EQUIPPED WITH

    A.P.U.s
    Inverters
    Refrigerators
    Peoplenet ELD tablet with navigation
    Equipped to have Sirius Radio
    Bunk heaters
    Requirements:

    At least 1 year of OTR experience
    OTR Trainee: recent CDL school graduate or less than 12 months of recent tractor-trailer driving experience
    Class A CDL

    END ADVERTISEMENT

    So I know they start you out at $0.49 CPM, even if you have a few years OTR experience everyone starts out at $0.49 CPM (I think that's what you guys said). So:

    $0.49 CPM X 2500 = $1,225.
    1225 X 52 = $63,700

    Then it says average $550 in bonuses per month. So:

    550 X 12 = $6,600

    Then:

    6600 + 63700 = $70,300

    And that is assuming that you actually average out to at least 2500 miles per week, 52 weeks out of the year, never going home for hometime and hitting that $550 bonus each month. And that still falls 5k short of that 75k average yearly figure.

    So I guess my question to you guys, is $75,000 per year really the average salary of Magnum drivers per year? Or is that only achievable if you have no life and no never go home for hometime?

    Someone who runs 4 weeks and takes 1 week home (so 4 on and 1 off) - What is that yearly gross salary probably going to look like?

    Just wanting to get your thoughts on this.

    I'm also assuming the 15% of drivers who make over 90k per year have got to be the trainers, right? 90k per year is extremely high (I think, at least?) for an OTR company driver doing reefer.
