    Not sure who they are, but you did not say what they were paying? So it will be hard to say if it is low or not. OTR pay differs based mostly on years of experience.

    I'm sorry i didnt put that info in.


    experience rate per mile
    2-3 yrs .32
    3-4 yrs .33
    4-5 yrs .34
    5 + yrs .35

    those rates are for a company driver pulling a van. are those rates ballpark or low?

    Taylor Trucking in Northfield, MN is a small family owned company. Rob Taylor is the owner. Great guy!!!
    They have the best bunch of girls in the payroll department. Never any mistakes on your pay. Always get your pay!!!
    They have a good customer base. Averaged 2800-3200 miles per week.
    Good equipment. Very good PM service. They have Freightliners and Volvos.
    This past summer they cut all drivers pay by .02cpm.
    I left because they pay by HHG miles. I lost about 9-12% UNPAID miles every month. For the year it was 10,348 unpaid miles!!!
    Overall, a very good company with good people!!!

    I didnt sit at all Alex94 Due to the fact that I ran Local/reigional, basicaly 300 mile radius of Northfield. Good people, good trucks, and as a dispatcher I delt with Mike all the time. I wasnt dedicated but I did alot of the same stuff. I wouldnt have left but when freight started to slow down the local side took a hard hit and I found a better oppertunity. Overall No complaints about the company. I would work for them agian If I had to but Im happy where Im at.
