    Now that's the ticket. That's what makes a good professional truck driver seeing how long you have to go and how many times you get laid. It's better you back out now while you have a little respect left.

    Yeah, everyone wants to screw the brown clown!

    Heard that years ago from a FedEx driver.

    I think you mis understand the company. They are a large lical company that hauls fuel throughout the tri-state area in nyc. They are always working. The few owner operators they have run asphalt oil in the summer and diesel,ethanol, and heating oil inthe winter to keep working.

    You're right, I was thinking you were talking about the LTL UPS company that's union and the drivers do make a lot of money. I seriously doubt that an asphalt company would pay their drivers more than they pay an UPS driver. I think you've got it mixed around too think that these drivers you are talking about are O/O's which makes more sense than a company driver. That would be good money and after you take out all the expenses to run the truck they might make almost the same as UPS. When I say UPS I'm talking about United Parcel Services like Fed ex.

    Since this is a UPS thread now: My buddy works for UPS. He hired from the street with 6 or 7 years Class A experience and never did sort or package delivery first. When he started a couple years ago, the payscale was approximately $18/hr the 1st year, $21/hr the 2nd year, $26/hr the 3rd year, and $33/hr top scale after 4 years. Overtime is after 8 hours. It is a bit higher now, because of regular raises in the contract. That is for Class-A. Most are making well over $100k, but I have never heard of any making a quarter million.

    Just because package delivery drivers make great money doesn't mean the Class A drivers must make twice as much.

    I talk to a lot of ups guys. It seems the otr guys make around 100 to 120k and the package guys make around 70 to 80k. Both jobs are great paying but both have very strict rules and policies and drivers are very closely monitored. I don't think I could do it, being micromanage all day. they practically tell you how to do every step of the day. Hell, you might even have to wipe your ### with ups toilet paper.
     
    ajohnson and Bob Dobalina Thank this.

    So that would mean:
    Wipe brown with brown?
