    I called them a few years back. I had about 8 years under me at the time and the recruiter told me .31/mile. When I told him that was too low for me he said "We will give you more miles than JB Hunt". I hung up. That should give you an idea of what they'll pay a new driver like yourself.

    It is almost as though there is a built in discrimination against the experienced driver to keep truck drivers pay low. In the long run, this mentality could eventually back fire.

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

    its not going to backfire ever they are recruiting GLOBALLY. not to mention there's MILLIONS of people turning 21 every single year (like me a few years ago) getting into it because its all they can find that pays over 300 a week unless you wanna rack up 50k in student loan debt for a degree in uh.... basket weaving lol

    They have a "sliding scale" which is 1-100 mile load, .75CPM,, 100-200 mile, .55CPM, 200-400 CPM, but when yu are actually on the road, it is .18 CPM and .12CPM shown as "reimbursed expenses" for a total of .30CPM. I have 4 1/2 years experience . Very disorganised company. A lot of I95 corridor running.
