    and this is why they end up with drivers that have no clue really how to drive. when i went to werner i had no idea what i was doing. i have gained some experience since then and am better then i was. im now gaining experience working locally. the more seat time i get the better i get. the werner trainer was a poor trainer and the truck an automatic. it took me driving locally for a while on manual trucks to really get the shifting down. i first got on the werner truck and when i discovered it was an automatic my reaction was, your kidding me right? i need to learn to shift well and you people put me in an automatic. i had no intention of staying with that company anyways. as soon as local doors opened i jumped, and i mean as soon as. now im driving a class B dump truck usually. the truck is an eaton 8 speed manual and i can finally shift the truck well. basically school taught me the absolute basics of shifting, but to really get it down took me driving in my assigned manual truck for a while by myself.

    Bingo! When the driver pool shrinks even more and the CSA starts to catch up...they will not have a choice.

    There is a reason no one wants to work for CPM anymore it's a scam designed by the rich to get richer. Wisen up and learn. Fight for Hourly Pay and Time 1/2 W2 Pay ONLY!!

    CPM is so outdated. There needs to be a min wage for drivers....somewhere in the 25 an hour range.

    Makes perfect sense. Would cut down on speeding and speed related crashes too.

    So work for minimum wage and then ask for overtime so you can think you're making more money okay whatever

    It's not letting me edit my post again. So I'll put this here. I looked at my last 10 or so checks and my average pay posted is actually a bit higher than I though. My average pay with USX is about $700/wk at $.39/mile right now. Don't know why I was thinking it was around $850 or $900...maybe I inflated what I thought was my average pay to not make myself feel so bad. Obviously that's a horrible avg. pay for 2.5 yrs of experience. Jesus. Currently looking for a new company. I have gotten some suggestions from you guys, especially Chinatown. Thanks a bunch. Making a move this summer.

    Bet you're one of those guys who screams about cheap freight only making it worse off for the rest of us.
