    Way too many payroll games to keep up with. one example is, if you are not on a dedicated acct they force per diem at 16.5 cpm. They told me otr paid 51.5 cpm but really was only making 35 cents. The other 16.5 cents was being added as income and was being counted as per diem. The end of year tax time came around and had already used my per diem deduction as part of income. I used my deduction, got paid a lot less than promised then still had to pay taxes at the end of the year. Now I work hourly and work the same amount of hours and my check is always different... I'm stuck here due to child support for 4 more months so it's too late for me... This is a serious warning to all those that come after me... BEWARE...

    Nothing like Marten Transport. #1 You're guaranteed to be micromanaged. #2 Average weekly net pay $650 #3 DeSoto, TX terminal bring yourself a gallon of 409 and cleaning cloths for your fine truck. #4 All overweight drivers will be put on sleep apnea machines! #5 Hometime? you'll never get home on time.

    After the new tax laws take affect the 16.5CPM is probably an advantage. I kind of doubt they will keep it up.

    With the new tax law they are raising the per diem to 17.5 CPM.

    You're still losing $0.02 off your base pay! 0.215 + 0.175 = 0.39 My base pay is 0.41 Screenshot_2018-01-22_062300.jpg

    I always say to research a company before going to work for them by talking to CURRENT drivers. Also stay with a company for at least a year to get the hang of it.

    We can never go back. I wouldn't look good in a pumpkin at this point in my career.

    Yea, there's no going back, but man I had a good time there. Marten helped me escape a very dark year of my life. Can't go back to sliding scale from .5860 tho
