    Prime trucks really aren't stripped down aside from having a 10spd and the stock seats. Have you looked inside/outside one? Are you drunk?

    If you working for anything less than .36 cpm with 1 plus years of exp is crazy maybe a new student but i have heard of people starting out at .28 cpm which is amazing and wrong IMO for so many reasons. Give me a slow truck at 60 mph for 36 cpm any day over a fast truck at .32 cpm
     
    MsJamie Thanks this.

    There are many people whom do it, as in drive for low pay... why? I don't know.
    Too scared of change perhaps?

    I met a CR england driver recently that was with them 1 1/2 years and was at .29CPM
    Werner driver I met 3 months ago with less than a year at .26CPM

    I told him he'd make .44 at Shaffer and he did make the change
    Everybody complains CR England is terrible.. 100% not even kidding

    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe those pay numbers are no longer current. They had a 1CPM across the board raise a few weeks ago, and I'm pretty sure those are the previous rates. There is also an extra 5CPM for being on the NE regional fleet, and an opportunity for at least a 6CPM fuel bonus. So if you're in a lightweight truck, on the NE fleet, and get excellent fuel mileage, your potential pay directly out of training is 0.54 per mile.

    No, I'm saying they are not stripped down like alot of the fleets out there

    Most fleet trucks have minimal gauges and don't spec fog lights. not to mention other things Prime adds on. how many fleets use enclosed headache racks for flatbed?
