    It's best to submit an application first, then follow with a phone call. Some websites have "Short Apps" which make it quick and simple.

    Oh I must've missed your post; it says on their website you get paid like
    Oh I must've missed your post; it says on their website you get paid like $600 a week or so and over the course of a year they pay you the full $1200 ish and I said it's "absurd" because unless I'm twiddling my freakin' thumbs (doing less work) I should be paid the same amount as anyone else who does the same job at the same proficiency; obviously I know I don't deserve to be paid the same amount as someone with several years of experience, but it still seems kinda low. But, I'm not a truck driver yet and I don't know how much everyone else is paid.

    @Thull is from Louisiana and worked for Schneider Bulk. He can give you the facts on pay. Pretty sure you misunderstood what the recruiter told you about pay.
     
    Thull and farmerjohn64 Thank this.

    Yeah I get that, probably would've waited if I had known, but by the time I got the grant to go it was a little too late; I appreciate all the suggestions.

    Here's a link to a page I read that on, if you're interested. Is that amount fair? I wasn't trying to come off as an entitled #######, bad information if anything.
