    Here is their AUGUST 2010 ad in Craigs list! I sent them an email asking if you can opt out of the per diem and their reply was NO! So read this and see what your actual pay is then that oh so wonderful steal from you per diem! Why not just pay the full amount and forget calling that extra .09 a "per diem" I forgot to ask them how much they charge for the privilege of having that .09 taken out of your check? Yes it's forced if you need a job but do not want that per diem taken from your pay check so that your taxes at the end of the year are lower and you'll get better unemployment in case they fire you, or better pay on workers comp and best of all your social security will have more in it when you get older!

    Anyway the pay starts out at a staggering .23 for a whole mile! WOW where do I sign up or should I just click the link! ROFLMFAO! I made 23 back in 1992! What an insult! They almost are candidates for the Rollover BFI award!

    But here is the ad !!!

    We tried to explain this to the marine sergeant, kivikon or something.

    But as long as he can get 4000 miles a week, he didn't care !!!

    You know the story............

    yes, do not go there! their trucks break down quite a bit. I know a team that used to drive for them and they were always broken down some where. DOT rating sucks, you get pulled into the scales every time.

    What most people do not understand in the per diem is that yes .23 is taxed and .09 is not. But when you add .23 to the .09 you get .32. YOU STILL MAKE .32 CENTS PER MILE. You are only being taxed on .23. This in turn means that on a weekly basis you put more money in your pocket because less is taxed, wow you would think that would be the greatest thing ever, the government getting less of you money. Yes I am an employee for Butler and would love to explain the benefits, plus the down sides of per diem to you, yes i will admit there are down sides to it, isn't there to pretty much everything. My direct line is 913-233-4229, i am in the office 7-4 central time.

    if you read it quick it almost sounds like a low paying job----at 32 cents per mile
    but when you consider that they are only paying you 23cpm, and the other 9 is actually money you would be getting back at end of the year at tax time---read it slow--and it is a very very low paying job----yes less is taxed ,because they are only paying you 23cpm--the rest is just an advance on your per diem
