    Did you take any home time during that time from December to April?

    If you were averaging 14,000 miles per month, so 3,500 miles per week, that's $1,715 gross per week on average starting at the very bottom pay rate of $0.49 CPM not including ANY bonuses. Which means if you would've kept 14,000 miles per month you would've made $89,180 gross per year.

    89k per year is good money. Certainly not anything to scoff at. I can understand your frustrations regarding constantly going to New Jersey and the shop issues, but you were making good money.

    Were you a trainer making that kind of money or just a regular company driver?

    Where did you go next or where are you going to go next? Still OTR reefer or are you going to try something new?

    Cobra, would you say you were you on basically a dedicated run to NJ? I can't blame you for getting fed up after awhile. They had to have runs going to Texas that they could have given you once in awhile. I thought I read that drivers had a choice at times where they went to on runs starting out of the upper midwest like MN, ND or WI. They must have a lot of guys in the Carolinas that get all the runs down there that I read a lot about.
    I'm also interested in the home time as in how hard it was to get that. I go on vacations often and wanted the type of home time I read about.
    I thought they'd be a good place to start at with what I read here. I'm a little nervous about it though reading how they trash everyone's DAC when they leave. How long were you there?

    That's why they ask you to give them 10 days notice for time off requests. I've gotten stuck in the MN to NJ loop a few times though, not that I care.

    Hey Guys so today has been an interesting day for paychecks. I strongly urge you to go on the actual website an see if you can find your paystubs for this month..yes including today. Mine stopped showing up after the 30th of last month. Not only that according to my paystub it shows all of my miles were taxed when last week it was correct as far as per diem. Tracy in payroll is oddly not here on Fridays which doesn't make sense considering its pay day if your weekly and possibly for bi weekly depending on the schedule. Apparently they only have one that can handle it which is crazy as well.

    2nd if you having issues with EFS or have never used it....the way I found out was trial an error. I know we were told T-checks were going away but was never told how it actually works. So I guess you just give the code to the shipper or the receiver. (the Sysco in Boise just had me download an app for them and input the code) You will still have to message magnum about canceling the rest of the balance.

    Now on the payroll side...you DM might be able to find your statement but Kayleigh had a hard time finding anything with mine even for the week prior due to the new system. So instead of going to your DM I highly recommend messaging Chad Nelson or Matt. Guys you need all the information you can out here to properly perform, we should be able to get the same from Magnum. I get its a new system but these scenarios should have been ironed out before they hit us as to make our lives as normal as possible so we can keep running.

    Now I dont know if all Sysco's will have this or if you now about it but if you go to the Boise Sysco the app you want to download is RELAY. Will have a green center piece that looks like a atom. Guys I cannot stress this enough....if you are having issues and its above the DM (with the new system its likely going to be since they didn't have good live training) then you need to send chad an Matt people net messages or emails. You DM cant fix an issue like these that are going to pop up....you MUST let Chad and Matt know. To some degree us drivers were kind of left in the dark on some things....an since some of these are part of our job function, this wasn't cool to just go "they can figure it out."

    Hope you all stay safe an stay healthy. Oh BTW the drivers lounge is open in Fargo, but the shower is a hazard waiting to happen. There is one shower curtain for the entrance but no curtain the shower, also the floor is slanted and level with the tire so the water will run out and cover 1/4 of the tiles so definitely a bad design. 2nd if you are in the shower for more then 10-15 min I think (didn't time it) the lights in the bathroom will shut off completely while your showering unless someone comes in an trips the sensor or you feel along the wall an open the curtain an get them to come back on. Motion sensor is on the ceiling in the middle of the bathroom so thats bad as well. As of last week I believe they still dont have TV's or laundry yet but coming. They do have a microwave, coffee pot and fridge with top freezer. I am considering a decent size toaster oven for us to use but only if I get a number of people willing enough to use it. Also if I do get this I will need to be taken care of an cleaned after use every time. We are all adults an would like to be able to cook our food in clean appliances so if y'all are willing to get up with cleaning it an are willing to use it I will purchase one for us drivers.

    Let me know, Keep the shiny side up y'all

    Well it’s good to hear they continue to make improvements and are providing you all with solid money and a decent work environment.

    I hope you’re as busy as we are over in the open deck world, stay safe out there!
