    I must say that even though the terminal I run out of has high turnover I am happy with quickway. We haul milk for deans milk, the run that I have is south illinois and m.o. And with that run I work Monday Wednesday Friday and a local on Saturday and average $1200 a week. Btw home terminal is louisville ky.

    I have my eyes on this company as well. I think they are hiring out of the simpsonville, sc terminal. What is the pay/miles like?

    The miles are on a sliding scale...and to be honest with you I don't remember the scale off hand but I can tell you that under 200 its 44 cents a mile and over 500 it goes down to 34 cents. There's also 14.35 for stop pay and with the accounts here in illinois they want their milk on the floor so that's another 20 dollars per store. Let's just say overall I average 50 cents per mile.

    I am leased to FCS. They are Quickways owner operator division. I work out of the Bloomington,In. terminal.
    Quickway treats me very well. We get $18.00 stop pay and $18.00 detention pay after 1.5 hours.
    The terminal I work out of hauls grocery products to Military bases.
    I run the same route every week. I like it because it is predictable.

    Wow ampm you are doin quite a bit better than we are...they really take care of you guys out there. About the only thing I don't like about the companies trucks is they are goverened at 62...and they have detroits under the hood.

    We do not have a lot of stops. I think that is why they pay us alittle better per stop.
    I run between 2500 and 2900 miles a week. It depends on how many back hauls I have. I leave out on Sunday at 3pm. and my week is over on Friday around 5pm. I am home on Wednesday afternoon till 2pm on Thursday. All my loads are out and back. I live 10 miles from the distribution center. Quickway has a terminal at the distribution center.

    I know that the milk routes in Indianapoils run at night. They have multiple stops at Krogers stores. The driver has to un-load.

    To be honest chemster people are just plain lazy. The roughest route we have is st louis and that's mainly because you have to pull all of the milk off of the palets (only me and three others run those routes). The other guys won't touch those routes...but those pay the highest. You make a minimum of $310 per day runnin st louis.
