    Not much team freight at Mercer but yes they do have some . Know plenty of buddies leased to Mercer still. Not much freight over $2.00 a mile. Like have said in other postings, it all depends on where you run at Mercer. You will either make money Or go broke. One thing for certain , you will sit in line to get a load. Don't rely on Dale Korum for anything .

    If Mercer is so great why such a high turn over rate ??? Lol. Why do they.have a full room every week for orientation ?? Why do I talk to many a owners that used to work there ?? They have their good but believe me they have their bad also. They are no where near perfect.
    You will sit a lot and will dead head way too much.
    Safe travels and merry Christmas. Hope everyone of you have a awesome and safe Christmas and New Years.

    If your friend doesn't pull many loads for less than $2 a mile he'll never run out of hours at Mercer. Mercer loads by seniority and uses brokers to load trucks so do the math and see for yourself. For myself, I loved the atmosphere at Mercer but the money just wasn't there
     
    SheepDog Thanks this.

    Absolutely correct BUFORD.... My coordinator was awesome . My main problem was the trailer lease purchase , crooked as hell.. The other problems were low rates and a lot of sitting or dead heading. I'm sorry but I dont wanna go BBQ at a truckstop with Mercer drivers. lol My idea of BBQ'S is at home with the wife and family, not hanging out at different truckstops around the Country...

    We have recently received a new shipment of log books and want to make you aware of a change on the log page. Now there is an area in the bottom left corner that asks for your odometer reading at the beginning of each day. This information, as well as the state routes and state miles, must be filled out. Also, the recap is no longer on the inside of the front cover. It is now on a separate page in the beginning of the book. - is it me, or mercer is beginning to slide towards the pushy company? odometer readings, state routes, really?

    So far-for 2011? Yes. However, if you are willing to stay out longer, I know of a company where you can make more money. I've been off for about 3/4 of the month. So, I don't know how they are, I don't o ow if anything changed. Otherwise, they were good to me. I might even go to Bruce Oakley, if mercer will be doing stunts like these.

    Little here, little there, little here, little there =
    ADDS UP TO BEING A LOT. look at what mess this country is in - didn't happen because of the one decision but, because of a lot , what seemed to be, harmless decisions. Which were made one at a time, by the idiots.
