    Qualcomm can track you. I get a recommended route message whenever I stray. But today I was asked exactly where I was?

    We got a message that pam is going to buy 50 new trucks every month for two years starting in April, but I'm gonna believe it when see it!

    Rumer says they will have electronic logging and probably the very newest qualcomm too.

    I probably wont be around to get one.

    Begining March 1 2011 they cut their dedicate run pay down to $.17 for all. It really shows what they think of their long term employees since they are the ones that are being hit the hardest. Last year they did a straight 5% across the board for all employees. This time it only really hurts those who have been with the company for over a year. My husband, who has been with them 5 years just went down 2.5 cents per mile. That equals over $100 per week after taxes. Another woman he was talking to has been with them 9 years. She got cut 6 cents per mile. How can they complain about turn over in this industry when they have no respect for longevity?

    I know one thing right now. If I tried to do this run with e log I'd still be in AZ rather than CA.

    With the Qualacomm your time place speed is sent as you run it so PAM already knows what you have done, and any cop just has to look at your BL and do some math and they know, and if they want they can call PAM, so your not hiding anything anymore

    Question, are you still a driver with PAM scarecrow? The reason I asked is because I've seen some of your posts and I'm interested in the company. As a matter of fact I start orientation next week on the 31st. I wanted to know how long the orientation is and will my training start right after orientation or will they send you home. And also how long is the over the road training. I'm a former driver with a 1 year experience but the last time I driven was back in Feb of 2005 with Swift Transportation. Thanks for your posts, they are very informative.
