    I think everyone can agree to disagree whats we drivers consider is fair, everyone says hourly while others happy with high CPM and no extra pay whereas someone with a lot of lower CPM and a lot of accessory pay. If at the end of the day your above water bills are paid and somehow saved money for a newer truck, boat, house or w/e and money for savings you did alright.

    Me personally I like being home every night in my home away from truck on a 1k bed I spent make me sleep like on a cloud lol

    I'm the compliance and quality manager for our carriers and have been at it for 7 years with my company. I have very close relationships with our carriers and I really appreciate the work that they do. I will definitely stay like this and thank you!

    Salary + Benefits + Retirement + PTO = your pay package. You can either get what you need from the industry, or put up with some less-than-ideal conditions for more.

    But once you have experience, never settle for less-than-ideal with terrible pay.

    And we drivers appreciate the work you do. As long as we all recognize the importance of each other, I think we are headed in the right direction.

    I have long thought about retiring to the office once my driving days are over. But until then, there is a lot of money to be made.

    "I want less government!!!"

    "Wait, maybe just a little more government so I get paid to wait!!!!"

    I didn't read the whole thread, so I'm sure I'm echoing.......

    Dont work for a company that doesn't pay detention.... they all bill for it ;) (at least ones that recognize a sitting truck is not an earning truck, and must be compensated accordingly)

    Time is money, money is time.
