    Hi friends,

    Local driver here,...but had a question.

    SINCE OTR drivers are USUALLY both exclusive AND paid by the mile, 'HOW ARE THEY PAID?'

    A bank officer asked me this question and i didn't really know since i've never done OTR.

    So,...how are they paid?
    • -w2
    • -1099
    • -OR BOTH?
    THANKS for your input...

    I've only worked W-2.
    Some prefer 1099 companies.

    Paid by the mile... Every penny on W-2... No set payday, I'm paid 2 business days after I return to the terminal from a run. Runs are 5 to 8 days long usually.

    No. Bonuses from the company.
    Fuel bonus, paid extra to unload or load trailer, layover and detention pay are some of the extra pay
     
    Texas_hwy_287, tman78 and FlaSwampRat Thank this.
