    $32,500 for one year, for many people, this is like "manna from heaven".

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    I can't tell or some angry lease guy might start pulling 5th wheels :D


    Yup, she is really good at what she does and just a good person in general.

    Your cameras don't record what you are doing at home on your off time if someone bumps into you, either.

    I threw the caveat about the pay being low in there because if I didn't someone would have been along telling me how low it is and that they make $32.5k a week or something.

    It is a solid paycheck. They have the miles. You're not going to get rich, but you could do a lot worse than a year at TransAm.

    I agree with the camera part, I ran more red lights when I had one.
    And that 32 k sucks. But it's a foot in the door

    No comparison,you don't have the threat of
    1000 dollar fines and/or 10 years in prison for
    1 mistake.

    Does TransAm deduct for per diem? If so, is it voluntary or mandatory?

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    I had calico as well, but anyway I didn't stay a full year I kept refusing loads to nyc after the first visit to hunts point I have been there twice. So I was there 6.5 months and did pretty decent about 600/wk avg but I used up the service failures by refusing ny loads so I had to quit to go work for navajo before being terminated. Not a bad switch, but its only slightly better pay about 800/wk avg.
