    Some guys who want a lot of home time will make in the low 50s on the other hand if you want very little home time you could make in the upper 70's. Those are 2 extremes. Im in the middle. I'm just kinda sort of a hard worker.

    I wondered about that and that was my theory when I read about drivers with a few years with a company seeing their miles drop. Figured it was part of a company's "business model." Good to know that Superior doesn't play that game, and one of the many reasons I'm going to try and pull for them when I finish my school. I know the odds may be against me but it doesn't hurt to try. Thanks for the info.

    you make it sound as if the home time is flexible. Am I wrong? I'm not too far from the Markham terminal and would apply if they are.

    Also, would anyone happen to know what state Superior is the busiest in?

    Hometime is very flexible, they will work you how you want to work as much as possible. Typically if you have a home date in and there isn't a load going back towards your home terminal, they will deadhead you home.

    I'm not really sure what the busiest state is, probably Texas or Louisiana if I had to guess.
     
    TheJU312 Thanks this.

    Thanks David. It's hard finding a place that will work with your schedule. Being home everyday would be great but if that's not possible out and back with a layover no longer than 2 days would be just as good

    So would it be best to put an app in after the pay increase in October? Or is the pay increase for those who've already put time in with the company?

    Everyone is paid the same. If you started October 5th, you'd get a raise on the 6th.

    Does anyone know if the Savannah GA terminal drivers run mostly out and back or out and into the system? Would being home a night or two a week and most every weekend be possible?

    So I figured I'd update this a bit, at least as it concerns entry level drivers.

    Entry level training pay is now $100/day OR $13/hr, whichever is greater. This basically means if you work over 8 hrs, you are getting paid hourly. It is well within reason that an entry level driver can gross $8-900 during training. Consider that many guys out of school with dry van companies don't even make that much solo.
