other statements from driver agreement!
2. A two week notice is mandatory for our independent contractors. This gives us the opportunity to fill a driver in for that truck. If a two week notice is not given, by signing this agreement, you acknowledge your final check will be kept to recoup the financial loss of the company -- NO EXCEPTIONS.
There is a flat fee for pick up and drop off only days. A fee of $75 will be paid upon completion of a pick up and drop off only work day. Single drop-offs or pick-ups are $40 individually. In the event of a layover (driver is in truck and does not have a dispatch for that day), a fee of $50 will be paid for that day. 10. If the driver accepts a load, is given a dispatch time to be at the yard, and does not show up within 30 minutes of that time, a fine of $100 will be deducted -- NO EXCEPTIONS. After two offenses, this will be a means of termination. 11. Effective January 1, 2016, no advances will be given to contractors -- NO EXCEPTIONS
5. While on duty, the contractor is obligated to answer all calls and texts from dispatch within 15 minutes. Please keep all smart devices on ring mode and accessible at all times, even when outside of the truck. Failure to answer or return calls within 15 minutes is considered neglect. Two warnings will be issued and the third offense will result in a fine of $50. Communication failures that are excessive is a means to termination at our discretion.
Question is 25% of load after fuel fair,bad or about normal?

If ad is this bad I’d hate to see contract lol and how do get 2k guarantee if average is lower . If you do want the job ask other drivers what they really make and really get deducted. Aka $1000 late fee due to storm or breakdown etc etc
OR do you want me to tell you what you really need to do?
OK I'll tell you want you want to hear - it is a great opportunity, such a great one, I may consider coming out of retirement and go back on the road.
Is this ok?
That's BULLSH****** offer.
How about this - I'll break down why you need to forget crap work like this, OK??
First where is all of the description, you gave us a little bit.
OK here is the thing, you are a contractor, not an employee.
So ... things like home time you are not an employee so he can't tell you to abide by any of this, you work when you want, and if you want to go home, go home.
So this point they can't hold you to, even if you are an employee, they can't - "A two-week notice is mandatory for our independent contractors."
As a contractor, you leave when you want - PERIOD. You don't have to give notice and they legally can't retaliate for it or you sue them. I know one 1099 who
the phone call crap, another BS thing, they can't tell you or force you to return a phone call because it is a safety issue - sometimes it takes longer than 15 minutes just to find a place to pull over safely.
Also as a 1099, you don't have a simple couple of pages long driver agreement, it is a contract that is written in legalize and signed.
I would say this is a bad deal, RUN!!!
