    Been talkin with driver solutions about going through the cdl program they have and driving for PAM. The sign on is good. $200 after you get your cdl $500 after 90 days and another $500 after another 90. That said, the mileage pay is only going to be 17 and a half cpm. Does anyone know about increases in pay and how long it takes. I understand entry level isnt gonna make alot, but that doesn't sound very good to me. Is this a good pay or should I look elsewhere? Thanks for any feed back you can offer

    yeah they look pretty good. Im kinda stuck between pam and crst. crst told me they dont deduct money for school from your pay check and they are only an 8 month contract and after that you owe them nothing. just not sure about team driving.

    that's not too bad, cutting 4 months out of a commitment you might not be too happy with. i'm on the fence about signing up with pam, or roehl. i hear way more good than bad about both, but someone said i can get sponsorships through the community college program too, so i'm checking that out today.

    wow pay that low,I think I made more many years ago .Just make sure you read every word in any contract and keep copies of everything .I had one try to put a lien on my house in hopes I didn't keep good coppies.

    The 17.5 cpm is based on team driving. Appears you live in an area where it may be required for 6 months. That's if there's someone within, I believe, a 100 mile radius of you. If you live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area you'll definitely be going teams.

    Good luck to you in whatever path you choose.

    DJT, any idea if they require you to team if you live out near Tontitown? I'm only about 20 minutes from their main terminal.
