    Sounds like you've done your research which is a big part of the battle.

    Since you have medical coverage elsewhere they will pay you an extra .01 per mile not to take theirs. Not a lot but it adds up to an extra $1,000 a year or more depending on how many miles you drive per year. I looked at it as a mortgage payment or 2 car payments worth of extra money.

    They do have good equipment and take care of it. The tractors are well equipped and not typical stripped down company trucks.

    Yup I think you'd be good from Mississippi or Alabama. And being ex millitary instead of the school costing $2500 it's discounted down to $1000.

    For anyone that has gone through the school recently after Millis gave out raises, what is the training pay now is it still $72 a day? I'm going to Richfield on 1/15.

    Nope. Trainees are now paid .42cpm for all paid miles the truck gets between student and trainer. Its very good $ now as a trainee.

    Where do y'all mainly run? I'm thinking about coming over in March or April, I have plans for March already so not changing jobs. How much drop and hook? I live a hour south of Nashville. Also, how much is health insurance for driver and spouse only?

    Their closest terminal to you is in Cartersville, Georgia; if you have a way to bring the truck home there in Tennessee, they nearly always have something going in or out of the industrial park in Lawrenceburg.
