    Divided by 2 that's around $1375 before tax is that better than solo per week? considering what you have to put up with, i can understand why its so hard to get teams i think the only one's that'd really work are husband and wife.

    Since I only have 6 months of experience if I went solo I would be making 40 cents a mile I believe. Witch is $1,000 a week instead of $1,375 a week like I am for teams. Also I agree with you about husband and wife thing, currently I team drive with a really good friend of mine but he is looking to move on in a different career in a few years. When he does that, then I'll be solo for sure. I would hate to team up with a random person

    I came to Magnum making .36 per mile with no experience. Within 8 months I was making .50 a mile (and still am) since we are paid by performance. 3,000+ miles a week. Nobody else in my truck. :) this is a great company for people who don't have a lot of experience, but want to run hard and get paid well. I wouldn't do teams personally.

    Teams work great in the Northeast as you don't need to worry about getting stuck with no parking.
    Guys who live in the Northeast might find this attractive.

    If your with a good friend that'd work too almost like husband and wife i guess if you can tolerate each others personal space and habits, not sure why you'd only make $1000 solo at .40 per mile even at 60 mph a driver over 5 days could easily do 3000 miles which is $1200 only $175 less without the hassles.

    He can't. He's just joking around, so members shouldn't worry about other members being able to detect their location.

    Right, but they fell for it. Said he was getting his truck worked on at US Express headquarters.

    I just did the math at a standard 2,500 miles a week instead of 3,000. I rather under estimate then over estimate when it comes to money lol

    A few weeks ago we hit 7,300 in one week, it was a awesome check to say the least.
