Hey ya'll im out here in winston salem north carolina and taking my hazmat test soon. Currently hauling food grade tankers, and considering puryear. Anyone have insights on pay and work life? And another job reccomendations is welcome
Paid by a percentage of the load...23% to start 24% at 6 months and 25% at 1 year. You can move up to 27% but I believe you’ll have to stay about 10 years to get there. You’ll be eligible for insurance on day 1 it will be free for you...dental and vision will cost you and if you add any family it will also be at an additional cost.
Paid every two weeks
They offer a guarantee as long as you your available for work.
750 a week for day cab
850 a week for a sleeper truck
Forward/driver facing cameras
Governed at 72-75 mph
No slip seating
You have to call in every afternoon between 5-7 to see if you have loads for the next day.
They have a mix of auto and manual shifts.
Equipment could be maintained better.Last edited: Apr 11, 2021

I cant remember where i heard this from but i think someone said they got in trouble for eating food while driving, but not like a full meal kinda food. Thats pretty wild if i can get in trouble for eating like a bag of chips imo. More than that it takes away too much privacy, no one becomes a driver to be watched all the time
Depends on if they watch the camera all the time or have access to it all the time or just download it after an accident .
if they have female drivers I can smell a lawsuit already for the driver managers or dispatchers watching it all the time.
I know a guy that works for an equipment rental place as a mobile mechanic ,
he got fired for not wearing his seatbelt.
while he was backing out of the garage into the parking lot. . .
I know of several places that offer weekly minimum pay,
They are having to start doing that to keep drivers from leaving if they have a few slow weeks.
place my nephew drives for started paying $500 a week if they don’t have work.
Although I suspect it’s part of the fedgov PPP thing and not out of the companies pocket
And having to call on twice a day is pretty common. Stupid , but common .
