    I dont think pole fleet trucks are auto but it could always change. Theyre phasing out manuals as we speak.

    The Pole Fleet supervisor is suppose to be calling me, Tabatha is doing my background check now, 1 year or 2 and I hope to be doing heavy haul in my own rig, and that will have an 18 speed.

    That's actually a benefit. The pole fleet is the same as the 200 fleet except with more miles because of a better dispatcher and you get 15% more pay to the same job as the 200 guys. Granted you got a ####ty paccar motor and a 60" sleeper.

    That's how it was when i was there anyways.

    sorry to be that guy and bump an old thread. I thumbed through it but I'm having a hell of a time finding what I'm looking for in almost 700 posts...

    I'm new here and a new CDL A holder looking for my first driving position. System was recommended to me, I got in contact with them and they actually have a CO regional route that I'm being considered for. their next orientation doesn't start until June 5th so I've got some time. they've already told me what to expect for pay - $1500 sign on bonus paid out over 6 months, $375 for the week of orientation, $50 per day with a trainer for up to 5 weeks and then 44 cents per mile once I'm on my own. the cents per mile seems decent. but when I asked about miles and home time, she said she wasn't sure what the regional routes are doing for miles, and said I had to be okay with being out for up to two weeks at a time, but that wasn't common.

    so of course here are the questions. can any System drivers that specifically did their regional routes speak as to what kind of mileage you were seeing per week, and what the home time looked like?

    thanks in advance!

    If you run out of Denver, get ready for running I-70 everyday. Lots of drywall. Every once in awhile I'd see one of their guys down in LA or Oklahoma.

    yeah, that's about what I'm expecting unfortunately. but I'll be happy if I get to do some runs on 285 and 50 and 550.

    Focusing on mileage with a regional gig is a dead end street. You're never going to get high mileage.

    I have what is probably one of the highest mileage regional routes possible and I'm only averaging around 2100 miles per week.

    Instead, a good chunk of your pay is going to be things like stop pay, tarp pay, low miles pay, live load pay, etc...

    That stuff is going to depend on what kind of loads that fleet runs, how the dispatchers hand out the loads and how smart you work.

    Then there's training. Trainers make a lot more money than non trainers.
