    1.Dont trust the recruiters they lie.
    2. He should continue looking elsewhere but he can still work at Western while doing that.
    3. I work at western been here since January BUT I'm OTR ive been on a SLIDING PAYSCALE since I been here if your husband wants to make decwnt money here tell him to get with the NE regional fleet if he gets 5 loads in a week he gets 800.
    IDK IF THIS HELPS BUT YEA ALL THE ADVICE I CAN GIVE

    We live in San Diego, so NE is out. He's going to run the 11 Western regional. What is the sliding scale you get paid on? How many cpm sliding for what length of haul?

    Wouldn't it be too late? He's going to call the recruiter tomorrow but who knows what happens from here.
    As you're also running the same region, what are they paying you and what is their sliding scale?

    As a trainer I get paid differently. I’m not sure what the scale is. That’s why I suggested you discuss it with the recruiter.

    Is this what she is asking for?

    Our van division pay is a sliding pay scaled based on the length of the haul. Pay is 75 cpm if you have a load 100 miles or less, 101-200 miles=55cpm, 201-600 miles=34 cpm, and anything over 600 miles=26 cpm.
