    Looking for info on rl carriers. I just saw a job posting to work out of El Paso TX location. Wondering if it will be a good switch for me. Wanting to know how they get paid, and what home time looks like. Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Most R+L guys seem to be happy there. Different terminals will vary though.

    Who are you with now?

    City paid by hour. Line haul is paid mileage. Home daily usually as they changed their routes to get rid of hotel costs. If linehaul be prepared to be on nights until you are about to retire. 60k-90k roughly.

    I got off the road almost two years ago. I'm doing public transit, but I really miss being on the road.

    Well, if you downgraded your license many of their terminals run class C trucks.

    Good. If you can pass a physical and they're hiring, there's a good chance they'll take you on.
     
    Mike2633 and juandlg15 Thank this.

    They drive straight trucks on p&d. I'm not sure what they start at, probably in the $17 an hour vicinity.

    That doesn't sound like bad money for Class C work.
