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
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
MAGNUM DRIVER’S AVERAGE ANNUAL INCOME IS $75,000 WITH OVER 15% OF DRIVERS MAKING $90,000 OR MORE!

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