    I know a lot of people have questions about C1 and PAM, I had a lot myself when I started out here. So to give back to the community I'll answer any questions that I can. Just give me time, I'm OTR so I don't always have internet, but I will respond when I do.

    P.A.M. is short for the company founder's initials, Paul Allen Miestri

    There is a terminal in Atlanta, kinda.. It's really just a drop yard, I believe it belongs to Central Transport.

    And I hate it here.. I'm leaving at the first chance I get. Its not that bad if your single no bills and need the experience OTR for a better job. Teaming blows...

    Money sucks, .175 a mile team.. .24 a mile solo. There is companies out there that will take you with 3 to 6 months and paying .35 to .42 a mile.

    Don't get me wrong tho, the company is not bad, there is some great people in the Admin staff that will look out for you.

    Actually.. I should, might make some money that way. Because I have to support a family back home, I go 2 to 3 days without eating some weeks.

    I once had a PAM driver approach me at the j in Russellville, AR and try to sell me some of his clothes to get something to eat.

    How many miles you averaging? I just graduated from Future Truckers of America in NC. I am supposed to be leaving September 17th for orientation at PAM.

    Do you mean to say you didn't know the pay sucked BEFORE you agreed to work there?
