    Are you going to receive any detention pay for sitting on the Walmart load?? If so I'm curious as to how much. My friend had to wait for 36 hrs in Georgia because of a mix up, and he says that the company paid him $100 per hour.

    So all ur cpm figures are as follow .23 truck note, .12 cpm maintenance/warranty fee, and fuel . Yes you would have a fairly high mileage truck at the end but Iam using it as a stepping stone towards what I want if I finish the lease great. But Iam making more than the avg company guy and that gives me extra to save towards being a oo one day

    So far my feeling on the company are this for flatbed. I feel they do put forth a above avg effort to keep me running and try to give me longer runs that reward hard running drivers. I do a exceptionally good job keeping them informed on my situations and they handle things well if you look at the whole picture on what they ask me to do. I’ve gotten sick on the road. Felt my well being was more important than the load. I’ve asked to get home and have so far always gotten home when I asked with still keeping me running up until it. I do my part to put my self in a area or situation for a higher% of a good outcome and it usually comes out in my favor. When I go home Iam left alone . And I feel that’s in part cuz I run hard. When I am contacted it’s in a FYI state to make sure Iam aware of what Iam planned on. I can say that I usually run above 2500 miles dispatched when I run a whole week. And I have yet to come home mty and unsure of what’s to come. All and all I think this is a company that’s got more pros than cons but I feel things could look very bright for me here

    I already have a friend who works there on the reefer side. I used him as my reference. You guys on the flatbed side work to dang hard for my old butt. Lol.
    I'm just waiting for a seat belt ticket to fall off my record so I can reapply.

    Welp my truck is currently in the shop. Today make day 3 here in liberal,ks. Apparently my radar/camera system is corrupted and stopping the rest of the computer system from communicating. Which have my truck going about 5mph. Had a driver come pick up my load yesterday. So i got his load. Look like they going to have to send somebody to come this load too. The reefer is now down to 1/4 tank of fuel. And by morning probably will be out. 20k miles on my truck. And its down due to a radar. Starting to not like all this technology on the truck.

    Other then this issue i still like it here at wfx. Im getting good runs. Some loads have more then enough time to deliver. Others not so much. But this program is working for me.

    Do all the trucks have that crap on them? I want nothing to do with a truck that does.

    Not sure about the older trucks. Or the 389s and w9s. But the new trucks yes they do.

    Going to ride back to the yard with another driver. Getting a loner until my truck is ready. 3 days is long enough. Was told that they order some parts for my truck. Wont be in until Monday. And truck still might not be ready until Tuesday. That radar has my system all messed up.
