    New to PTL and this forum has outdated stuff on here. Let’s provide some updates to get the ball rolling again. I’ll start: spend two days at orientation for experience drivers in West Memphis. Hotel Tru was used for housing and the rooms were great. Breakfast, lunch and dinner on them plus $75 dollars a day, so $150 you’ll receive after second day. Trucks was assigned day 2, had a choice of freight or international I took the 2021 international because freights looked worn, just my choice. All n all it was a excellent experience and yes they do have facing cam. 1st week run since I started on a Friday was 431. For the next 2 weeks 2500 plus. They gave me credit for military experience so I start at .65 cpm. Looking forward to meeting more of you so let’s get busy with the feedback on the company and y’all experience with PTL. Stay safe and keep the shinny side up.

    Good luck on your journey, driver. 65 cpm is really cool man....are you going to be running all 48 with them?

    Everything east of I-35. Who are you with currently. Yes I thought.65 as a company driver is pretty cool also I don’t know what the average or top scale at the company level. Any idea?

    I'd say you're doing better than most OTR drivers in terms of cpm. If they can put some miles on you, you'll make a killing.

    So far I average 2500-3000 so it’s real good this week mostly drop and hooks over the holiday. Be safe out there. Who are you with?

    Update: Been doing night driving since I came out on 25 May and I am enjoying the peace and space on the road. Don’t have to worry about finding a parking space between 0600-0700 and that’s a plus. Also I don’t slow down or stop and cover more miles. Less traffic and more courteous drivers at night no rush just set the cruiser at 66 and ease on down the road. Headed to Chester PA and then 34 reset. Ready to rock and roll after that. Y’all keep the shiny side up, and be safe.

    He has a thread in the favorite company section.

    I think he's very happy there.

    It's good over here man. I've been here nearly 3 years and haven't looked back. It's a perfect fit for me, no nonsense, family atmosphere. I can't ask for anything more.
