    I don't know any company that would pay breakdown on someone else's truck.

    That’s why I would never sign one those fleece purchase agreements a lot of these companies push.

    Let’s see, I get to be a “owner op” so I can:

    - Pay for the fuel
    - Pay for the maintenance
    - Pay for breakdowns
    - Give up breakdown
    - Pay twice as much for the truck than its worth

    While you:

    - Keep the title (crap, I’m not an owner op after all)
    - Keep 1/2 the FSP
    - Can kick me out of the truck and take it back at will

    All so I can make the bottom line wage of a company driver.

    Yeah, sign me up! Lol

    Or the condensed version....

    Here you go. You get to pay all the bills while we still make all the money.

    What a racket. :rolleyes:

    I'm curious what do otr driver expect to make? 55k? 65k? 85k? Seems like all companies pay the same for the most part right?

    Back then they used to advertise that you could pick the color of your truck. Had all these different color trucks. That Muscogee yard was pretty busy then but they never did pay worth a ####.

    Yep, I remember riding by it.
    They had them in any color you wanted.
    They looked a lot cleaner and well maintained
    Back then too.

    Well the good news is that they still have those trucks you saw back in the day. The bad news is... they still have those trucks you saw back in the day.
