    Hmm, moderator can you please change the name of this thread to Buying/selling a house 101 and move it to the off topic section? Haha

    Students get a flat rate each day, the only requirement is that they have to drive a minimum of four hours or else they won't get paid. Depending on your trainer there may be a little flexibility with that.

    So if your given the opportunity to drive at least 4 hours and you refuse or something, you don't make any money? How could you prove if your trainer was unwilling to allow you? Do you keep a log while training on qualcom or paper? And if your sitting at the shipper/receiver for an extended period which causes you to loose that time, how can they not pay you for that? I understand it would be sorta the same when you go solo, but, there is also detention pay after so much time. So why wouldn't you get paid for that reason?

    No one gets paid for loading, Unloading, fueling, waiting for a load, pretrip, post trip, you work a lot for free in the trucking industry (unless you're working for ups, conway etc)

    If you refuse most likely your not going to make it through training, if your trainer won't let you drive after the first day call millis and let them know.

    Millis knows when you drive and when you don't you use the same electronic logging system we use in the trucks. The trainer will have his elog pee say and you'll have yours

    Ok, does Millis pay detention after so long to drivers? If so, how is that any different while training? Somebody posted on here they were sitting with their trainer for 10 hours at shipping waiting to be loaded and lost their drive time for the day which lost their daily pay.

    nevermind, don't see detention on their site, so, guess not. I know some do, couldn't remember. The company I drove for advertised it but we never got it.

    Well first off, if you are refusing to work, then this may not be the right career choice for you if you want to make any kind of living. That being said, your trainer should dictate where and when you drive according to your readiness level. Obviously, you shouldn't be running downtown Chicago on day one. So if you get picked up day one, and the load you're on runs through heavy metro areas, don't expect to get much seat time. If your trainer allows it, great. My current student didn't drive day one because we were loaded heavy, and had metro and mountainous terrain to go through. Since then, we've been able to work everything out that he's gotten plenty of seat time and will have over 5k miles after two weeks.

    As far as logs, we are required to keep paper logs in the truck in the event of a Qualcomm failure, but that's extremely rare anymore and your paper logs will probably collect more dust than ink. Everything is logged via the computer.
