    Ok, we are a couple months into Miller now, so here's the update.
    This place is great! It's hard work, don't get me wrong. You are always going and it seems like the average haul is between 600-800 miles or so, with an equal amount on either side. You get paid for everything, and I do mean everything. Sleeping-yes, Pre-trip & Post-Trip-yes, all miles, tank wash, loading and unloading. Everything. The only thing I really don't like is the still run HHG miles and they stink! The only other thing is you have to fill out Misc pay forms for all your accessory stuff, and it gets confusing as to when you fill one out, and when it's covered on a comp. I just came back from 2 1/2 weeks out (my choice) and made $300 for sleeping! Not to mention layover, tank wash,etc.
    Keep in mind, this is for company drivers only. O/O have a different deal going. I like company because you usually get a choice of where to go and I don't have to worry about stuff breaking on the truck and then wondering how I'm going to pay for it.
    Averaged $1000 a week NET for the last three weeks. Not bad and a heck of a lot better than hauling groceries.

    Sounds great! I had heard they were a top notch company. They were my first choice when I was laid-off but unfortunately weren't hiring at the time.

    They are still going strong. They have their ups and downs like any company, but I really like it here. Paid for everything and not a whole lot of stuff from upstairs if you do your job.
    Can't tell ya about the O/O side. We have had a couple leave saying they couldn't make any money, but the last two trips I was on that had O/O pay estimates attached were for $1.65 a mile for a 540 mile trip and a little over $2 a mile for about the same. Can't make money doing those kind of trips, I don't know what to tell ya.

    E logs. I like em. The company actually is very high on safety and unlike most companies, they MEAN it! They are very serious about running legal no matter what.
