Rolled up to Wisco monday, Cincinnati yesterday and now checking in from Cartersville Georgia. Definitely enjoying this so far. Strongly recommend the bbq joint off exit 290.

>>20947076It’s not the yard managers fault that your extra long gay pride mobile doesn’t fit!
>>20947079Uh it’s piss. There is no seal. It’s not a trick lol.
>>20947088You should remember that our Volvo’s are American designed not Swedish.That reminds me I’d love to have a Scania
>>20947091Actually yes. It is.

>>20947226Where's the milkers
>>20947271WdymAlso that Ford C-series is mint apart from the pickup bed I would love to buy a tractor version with the sleeper cab they offered plus a cat 3208/Allison A Ford H would be the next purchase But sadly nothing lasts here in Canada Can’t find any for sale
>>20947236Put a tool box between the tanks and axles on both sides and it’s perfect Showing frame rails=gay
>>20947323In the words of han solo, she may not be pretty but shes got it where it counts
>>20947320>>20947323isnt it the same one from the plywood cuckshed dayz? or did she come with the new truk?

>>20947359>>20947362I mean Id beat the brakes off those tits for sure. But lets not pretend thats not a butterface. She looks like she enjoys sucking dick too. Not hating, just stating facts.
>>20947364It gets him off knowing other guys jerk it to his findom.
>>20947062What flavoraid is that?
>>20947112That pic is wrong season Bill, but you look good.
guys EF said he was gonna rape me
>>20947422I could literally put that back hoe on my stepdeck What a racket
>>20947336Is that the face of downs syndrome????
>>20947436and be legal?
>>20947446It may come as a surprise to most of u virgins here. But girls can make faces and looks different in the wild as opposed to the selfies u look at all day on IG
>>20947449go ahead and look up Caterpillar 349EL specs and then add an 8000 pound hammer to it
Too many Peterbilts here and they all look the same!Only way to tell them apart is:>Ones decent (the one with the DEF tank) needs toolboxes though >Ones so long it’s gay >And ones got a purple frame and a Cat engine Who’s who?!
>>20947472yep, shes a brown bagger. >>20947481>117500 lbkek
>>20947449Yes. The cranefag is hustling with the extra axles. He hates me because with just 5. I haul the real loads
>>20947498what the fuck are you even talking about dude
>>20947490Are u actually serious?The 2016 of which u speak was a lot truck. I traded it in 8 months ago for this custom glider. I will miss it though. My glider is same specs but with 30 inches added on frame. The reason I didn’t add toolboxes is because the tanks weren’t mounted even.
>>20947498No that’s not itI think “we” (as a whole) hate you cause you’re an ignorant cunt
>>20947490>one with the DEF tankEFs old truck>ones so long its gayEFs current truck>ones got a purple frameEFs brothers truckso they’re all gay by association. I miss my 367 though.
I spec’d this truck out for my dad. It’s same wheelbase as mine 310 but with 135 gallon tanks and toolboxes
>>20947536Honestly this is some whipline pick level stuff. Why do u ppl overkill it so much
Reminder that LTL are the most skilled maneuverers, make hourly money, sleep at home and aren't filthy, PJ wearing jug-pissers.
>>20947557Why is EF so dirty?

>>20947553That's the best pic of goblina you've ever taken.
>>20947561U know what millis I thought u were okay. But now I’m starting to realize that u have fallen from my grace See u in Wisconsin soon
>>20947570Lolol im just fuckin with you man, why are you so dirty all the time for real though
>>20947228Truckerfag where the fuck you been >>20947043>Mfw have probably the only working Rigmaster APU on our fleetI stayed on top of the maintenance and it runs like a Swiss Watch, keeps the inside cool and doesnt piss oil everywhere like the rest of them did
>>20947553we just make it look fancy so we can charge them more
>>20947570Also that sleeper is short af

>>20947653You know, I've been thinking about livestreaming/twitchstreaming drives. Retarded or nah?
>>20947607enjoy getting 3mpg
>>20947586Demo a VNX
>>20947691Nah famalamAlready worked it out.
>>20947675I think it would be cool for people who are interested in trucking. It would be pretty bland though, a lot of the same, like the job. - I broke my glasses and I’m so angry I feel like I’m going to stroke out
>>20947645You won't have to, mother nature will probably do it for you
>>20947693I.... I think I’m gonna have to pass on that
>>20947716I hope so.
>>20947744You’re missing out on a great heavy haul truck
>>20947749that meme tho
>>20947765googled heavy haul Volvohonestly not the worst thing I’ve seen but I suspect it doesn’t meet the running gear standards I need
>>20947765Listen cranefag is a fagBut KW is the worlds best. So I suggest u take a kneeBut his truck should of been outfitted with a fap dungeon
>>20947787this is a very confusing post
>>20947784I’m sure it could I’ve seen some pretty beefy ones in BC being used as logging trucks.But the entire appeal of buying them was the Volvo D16 which they axed here in North America sadly. Now it’s just got an X15. >>20947787KWs being “worlds best” is debatable cause they don’t even sell them anywhere else except for here in North America, and Australia has an entirely different Australian designed and made product lineup. You can get a real nice fapdungeon on the VNX.
>>20947811needs moar sidepipes tho
>>20947829No spreading gay pride shit here Thanks
>>20947811narrow T800 is so ugly and that one is missing an axle>>20947812I love my X15, I never thought I’d like an emissions engine so much but this thing is a fucking freight train and the engine brake is ridiculous. I’ve been 160k on 9 axles still passing dryvans uphill and it’s so satisfying.also I like fapping in hotels because you can pretty much cum anywhere and never have to clean it up
I’m riding on the top bunk right now, it’s a rough fucking ride up here. Will change to bottom bunk whenever my trainer stops.2/10 do not recommend
>>20947850Yeah the X15 is a great engine, I’m pretty impressed by it.>>20947853Jelly of what?
>>20947871He shouldn't have even allowed you to ride up there it's a major liability. You're like 102% likely to die in an accident up there

>>20947907Hard workers take drugs. Simple as that. From government issued Wehrmacht speed to meth smoking earthmovers to pill popping truckies
I woke up after a solid 8 hours and I haven’t even gone 50 miles. Why god
Where my wake and bake bros at?
>>20948935My trainer was picking up a load when I went to sleep.. we haven’t gone anywhere. I don’t really care because I’m getting paid by the day right now, but if he were my partner and I was getting cpm, I’d be pretty god damn angry. I woke up one point and he was asleep parked in the middle lane. I just hope by the time he calls me up to drive that we are going somewhere far enough away where I can drive all day
>>20949002Yeah I hate governors also. Must suck having to go 60 in the middle of nowhere. How do you stay awake?
>>20949005Eurobeat and gratuitous amounts of caffeine
>>20949009Today ef was not a fag >>20949011Morning primefag-san, do you still have cupping tires when you drive slo 24/7? It's a question I'll never be able to answer.
>>20949009>>20949002Based and redpilled Ethan
So.. I guess there was a damaged trailer we were supposed to pick up. Now we’re going to Kentucky. Thank Jesus Christ. Nearly 1900 miles away.
>>20947368you are in no position to cast judgment
>>20948992See my company we make cpm out of the gate and our trainer doesn't do any of the driving
>>20949278What kind of cpm do you get? I’m getting 600 a week now, and I have to do 180 hours of driving. After that for 2-3 months I do 40cpm and then after that 52 cpm (with my hazmat endorsement), but it’s split in half because we’re running teams.- we have to be the only ones driving for the first 40 hours then we switch to team driving the rest of the time.
>>20949340.43 straight or like 38 cents if we go with the perdiem pay. One cent raise quarterly. There's no PTO with the straight pay but 3 weeks with the perdiem.
>>20949489And that's not team pay either. This company doesn't do team driving.
>>20949489Are you taking the pet diem? I only get 2 cents knocked off for mine.
I was going to post this response in the previous truckie thread but it got archived. To whoever >>20948440 wasI usually pull three freighter outback flatbeds at 150 tonnes GCW.Here in Australia road train lengths are dictated by what’s allowed on a certain route. Sometimes a trailer has to be disconnected depending on the route. When that happens I usually call a contractor to pull my trailer. But my loads always take the same general route so disconnecting is rare.I run supplies to remote communities in the outback mostly along the Tanami track in NT.But on the topic of my VolvoI love itA lot of truckies comment on how nice it is and ask if it can handle corrugated roads and I must say It handles them like a champ.I’ve got this truck in 2014 and it holds up better than my Kenworth did.I treat it the same way as I did with my Kenworth. After every trip I take it to the dealer to have it serviced. I can’t afford any breakdowns along the way and my Volvo hasn’t let me down.My Kenworth on the other hand had some issues. Mostly with the Cat engine, also the fuller transmission overheated a lot. Plus I find it easier to work with my Volvo dealer.All round my Volvo was the best investment I’ve ever made.I know I’m not including much info but any questions you've got just ask.
Sitting in the box waiting on more money $
Emailed this to my broker. He better snipe me a hotshot load.Need them ramps already
>>20950281wow I'm going to call my local Volvo dealer right away and purchase a brand new Volvo!
Any other cryo guys here?

Enough of this third world bullshit. Back to the greatest county in the world. What are all the real American truckers up to? I’m sitting close to the Grand Canyon right now, headed to Kentucky
>>20951377I’m sitting at home on a day off. Be back tomorrow
>>20947221Those Tesla trucks have horrible build quality. Alway pulling into the gigafactory with a locked, empty trailer.
>>20951465I want to haul fuel.. how much experience do I need? I have.. 56 hours of drive time right now.. almost there right?
>>20951576Sure why not

please kill me
>>20951709The switch leads no where Like ur life
>>20951137Location is good about in the same area as the Kenworth dealer though.A big thing is that they are very flexible with hours.I can drop my Volvo off for my routine maintenance schedule and they’ll give it back in about half the time it took with my Kenworth.All round great customer service, knowledgeable service staff and when I purchased my Volvo it was a breeze.>They’ve got everything a truckie could want from a dealer.

>>209519525 Volvo credits have been deposited in your account
>>209515761-2 years plus hazmat and tanker
>>20952435Is it really feasible to make 100k+ hauling fuel?
>>20952673As an owner op working 70hrs a week and doing out of town work? Yes.
>>20952673The biggest challenge is getting gud and carded at every terminal available and working in the right city. Colorado is prime for this because they can’t find enough straight edge CDL X holders in Denver.
>>20952699Living around all those potheads seems like it would be.. challenging. I know people who moved to Denver just for “dude weed XD”. I just got fingerprinted a week ago, and once that comes back and getting hazmat and tanker endorsement. I hope I can make it that far.
Okay boys. Today might be the day I up and kill myself. I hope so at least. How are y’all doing today?

>>20954547Put a Lien on the truck for back wages.
>>20954547start selling the stuff you are hauling on craislist
>>20954547Honestly drop the trailer bobtail home. Whoever owns the freight might try to push theft charges. Hide the rig somewhere and claim you abandoned it on the side of the road. Lay low with it for a few years and see if you can piece it out or find a contact who will handle hot goods. I know of some local farming operations which own a few rigs already that wouldn't ask too many questions and probably strip it for parts and get scrap metal value for whatever they couldn't use.
Anyone getting tips at work?
>>20955302I'll come and give you just the tip if you want.
>>20955401>>20954623those are bitchin , heres another autocar
Me vs EF
>>20956004The one on right is better, the one on left would be great for fuel hauling, but I only see Carneys use cabovers.

4 days, 19 loads, 31.31t avg weight, $915 fuel bought, 378oz of covfefe drank, and i went on the scale 8 times and didnt get pulled in. i only go empty, and its been months since ive seen a scalehouse.
>>20956870How often do you usually get pulled in on scales? I’m pretty damn green and I’ve only been on the scales maybe... 5 times.
>>20956778Diarrhea with a side of diabetes.>>20956799Those cats would look good inside my crab trap.

>>20956547It’s because we aren’t a bunch of useless, poor, neets.
>>20956081>cheeky memphis cuntthat was me>>20956891i drive around them. tips:do not act like a dumb cunt when entering the scales. act cool, calm, and professional. do not slow down to 25 on the interstate directly before the exit ramp. you are a cunt and back up traffic if you do this. do not stop before driving on the scale. do not turn your hazards on and drive 5mph in the scale zone. you look like a dumb ass. creeping 1mph on the scale, and stopping for 30 seconds at the green light makes you a fucking retard. just pull up, stop/go/ get on your way. no fucking around, the more time spent """"acting safe""""" is the more time theyre going to figure out youre really the lowiq retard you really are. >>20956896the only crabs you have are from your sister
>>20956912These beauties were caught on half a male tabby.
>>20956547shut the fuck up rookie
Went trucking a couple times with my step dad when I was younger. Was extremely boring,maybe it's better when you're an adult. What's it like being a trucker as a career? Is the pay good, do you get decent benefits?
>>20947323She got some Tig o morals, info?
>>20957302It's shit, fuck off.
>>20957302I just started it. It all really stresses me the hell out. Confusing paperwork and unclear signs from shippers and receivers. Also some spaces so tight you wonder how anyone has ever gotten in any out of there before. The driving part is the easy part. Just 10 minutes ago I got so jammed into a corner of this receiver that I wanted to hop out of the truck and quit on the spot lol.
>>20956778>>20956813>>20956855The thing about Whataburger is that it's very dependent on how good a cook the person who prepared it is. Most of the time it's average at best but when somebody who knows what they're doing fixes it then it's fucking fantastic. Then it's kinda like crack and you keep going back looking for that hit but the guy who was good at it quit so now you have to find another store that has somebody good. I figure you have to eat 10-15 average-to-poor WB's for every one that's right and that sucks.
>>20957644>unclear signs from shippers and receiversImplying there ARE any signs. Ever.Though Sysco Louisville does have a sign that clearly says RECEIVING right over a man door. But you can't use that one. You have to go to an unmarked man door 20 doors to your left to get in. Once inside there are no signs or any other indication of the three individual locations you have to go to in order so that you can be checked in. And this is typical of the entire industry.
As drivers we have to adopt a one size fits all style on going into shipper and receivers. The freak places that look as us like we are retarded. I’m sorry but ima has to say THEY are the ones that do stuff fucked up. If I’ve been to 1,000 places and you guys do this one thing like this. Than sorry u don’t get to treat me like a retard. Those places adopt a mentality that all drivers are retarded and the entire thing devolves into paper on windows and makeshift passive aggressive signs posted everywhere.
Sorry if this has been asked before.Why do you guys get pulled over so often?It really seems like police love to pull you guys over. It seems to be at a higher rate than cars, and it's car drivers that are normally driving like idiots.
>>20955302Anthony Rizzo’s mom tipped me $22 once.
>>20957889I became friends with Louis Monaco while going to our companies orientation. He actually called this morning
>>20957914I was at Jarvis Landry’s place all the time when he still played for the Dolphins, but it was always his mom there. She didn’t tip because black people don’t tip.
>>20957302Without going into detail, you’d be better off mentally and physically(just the sitting alone, bad food/soda is a choice) finding a way to work 2 jobs at home than getting into trucking, and make the same pay. Benefits at my company are good, but I’m healthy and no family so I only ever need dental/vision for right now. That varies wildly though, if you need the medical then most people will take a job specifically because of that. Thing with trucking is the turn and burn, 10 hours off in between work periods where you need to manage your hygiene and personal affairs and rest, compared to a normal 8 hour job where you have 16hrs per day to do that. End of the week you get 34, so your normal 10 off plus 24 more to take care of laundry and anything else. Problem is, even with proper trip planning you might be inaccessible to a store to restock your truck with food and fluids that doesn’t rape your wallet, or at all. So that 24 extra hours becomes diminished in usefulness and adds more complexity to your week ahead. Time off is usually one period for a few days each month. It can be a useful career for saving an initial investment for something(house,business, etc) but requires some serious determination and will to remain focused on that, after the daily stresses of trying not to die, or get in an accident and get sued for $50million, or have the dot take a months pay because they want to accelerate the destruction of the lower middle class. I could go on, but honestly, keep whatever job you have and split your extra hours and get a second mcjob or whatever to boost your income.
>>20957644That’s cause all the infrastructure was made back when trucks were only 55 feet long overall Man I wish we could go back to those days Better payWe were respected Etc etc
>>20956004how small and dainty is that longnose?no wonder they have such low weight ratings.

>>20958157I’m glad I’m not the only one who is completely lost sometime. They really do make it seem like you’re the biggest retard on the planet for not having psychic powers and knowing their arbitrary rules and procedures.
>>20958185One time the guy tried to give me the treatment. And I just said stop. Do u remember ur first day here? Ya ur first day on the job? Yeah it’s my first day here. So let’s get this done. Quit talking to me like I’m stupid cause I’ve been to 1,000 different places and most of the time it’s no big deal.
>>20957874Roadside inspections. Usually Level III's where all they're checking is paperwork but sometimes they'll do II's where they check operation of lights, etc. No probable cause for the stop necessary. Just being a CMV is enough.
>>20957874Unlike you, trucks dont have to have a reason, or violation to get pulled over. They also have quotas for inspections, so they have to aT LEAST PULL X NUMBER OVER A MONTH. MY CAPS LOCK IS ON AND I DONT CARE>>20958145PLEASE DONT BE TENNESSEEI GO TO THE SAME PLACES EVERYDAY I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU OTR FAGS I HAVE A NEW JOB IN THE WOODS THIS WEEKITS A 20' GAP IN THE TREELINE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHEREI DROVE BY IT NOT ONCE BUT TWICE THIS WEEKTHE SECOND TIME BECAUSE I WAS IN A HURRY AND DIDNT WANT TO SLIDE THE TIRES BUT STILLIMA RETARD
>>20958480It’s Kentucky. The lady told me it’s how all Kentucky cornbread looks like, but I looked it up and she’s full of shit. I’m also an idiot for believing her.
>>20958145kind of looks like my grandma's home made cornbread. instead of buying ready mix she'd make it from scratch and some of the ingredients weren't always portioned correctly, so the end result would look a little off but it always tasted like cornbread.
>>20958545Yeah as a lifelong resident of Kentucky she's full of shit. That's a super deep south thing and they're called hoecakes but they're not a super regular thing even in the deep south. Done properly they're essentially corn meal pancakes cooked in bacon fat.
Who workin 2day?
>>20959156I am waiting on a trip. Stuck in a god damn sweat box about to suffocate.
So how often do you guys get drug tested?
>>20959897Every 2 years for med card
>>20957302>Was extremely boringI've always enjoyed driving. I spent countless hours playing racing games and driving simulators even before ever getting behind the steering wheel of a car. I knew I'd love the driving aspects of the job.
>>20959995Yeah.. I originally thought it was going to be 98% driving over the road listening to tunes. Was very sadly mistaken
>>20960376>Yeah.. I originally thought it was going to be 98% driving over the road listening to tunes. Was very sadly mistakenwhats the reality?
>>20960409Millis I’ll fuck ur ass Also trailer tails are garbage
>>20960482oh baby, whats our safe word
>>20960482also, those trailer tails saved them a million dollars in fuel the first year they had them
>>20960409I seem to spend over half my time doing paperwork, waiting at truckstops, or being at shippers/receivers. I made 4 deliveries the other day. Fucking 4! In one shift. I spent my entire time scrubbing around receivers
>>20960522Are you in a day cab?
>>20960496I wondering why more trucks don’t have them if they’re worth it. Only a minority of trucks have them
>>20960496I see u have 850 trucksLet’s say u have 800 driving 130k miles each2.80/gallon7mpg avg41.6 million spent on fuel Million dollars saved 2.5% increase in fuel economy u are claiming? Cost of trailer skirt 2,200$x8001.760 million Bitch u lost money and half of them are probably broken now.
>>20960543Nope. I’m in a sleeper. We run teams too so I figured I’d be running coast the coast the entire time.
>>20949340600 a week?fuck you otr guys are such cucksI make a grand a week only working 25 hours
>>20960546The first year though, as far as Im aware theyre very well maintained and corporate is super committed to keeping them going. If they saved a million dollars that first year off a 1.7 mill investment, theyre paid for in less than 2 years. Thats a damn good business decision. >>20960548Who do you work for?
>>20960554I mean our company weekly average for drivers is 1k a week. And we dont have student loans to pay for either.
>>20960558Covenant transport. I don’t have my hazmat yet; I’m waiting on fingerprints to come back. They said they usually run hazmat teams so maybe I’m just getting shit loads. >>20960554I’m in training right now. I’ll probably make.. 900 or so a week on average after I’m finished here.
>>20960558A good business decision would be putting that money and time into drivers.BUT WHAT DO I KNOW KEEP FUCKING WITH UR TAIL SO UR BOSS CAN HAVE FIVE BEACH HOUSES U FUCKING NOBODY.Oh and btw since the market saw a .00000002 decrease in fuel consumption because of ur tails the oil companies reacted by raising the price of diesel so ur margin is now the FUCKING SAME U PIECE OF HUMAN GARBAGE
>>20960580>A good business decision would be putting that money and time into drivers.I mean, that is in fact what they do.
>>20960572Yeah man, I dunno. I think avoiding the big conglomerates that force team driving is what the plan should be. Im a rookie though so most of that comes from a couple OTR vets that Im friends with. Theyre who put me on with millis because they said Id get hella training plus making really good money off the jump.
>>20960598Yeah. Honestly I’m realizing that team driving is.. not going to be great. It can get super irritating being around another dude 24/7. I can’t even beat off in the truck.. the fridge space is super fucking limited.. it just kinda sucks. After my 2-3 month training period (after my 180 hours with an actual trainer), I’ll be making good money though. Talked to some guys who worked here and they showed me their checks. It’s not uncommon to be pulling in 1200 a week here after taxes. Saw one check for 1624 bucks.
>>20960598I can’t wait until you get 2 months of real driving in and realize what a con it all is. Have fun netting $600/wk for being stuck at work 24hrs a day, 6.8 days per week. God forbid you want a weekend home, get ready for a $350 check.
>Other day >Was speeding in the Netherlands >Police officer pulls alongside me >Tells me to slow down over the cars PA system>I obey >We are both on our way
>>20960545On our fleet they ended up costing as much as they saved so we gave up. I think 2011's were the last trailers of ours that had tails.
>>20960619Yeah, the whole living at work thing sucks. It’s a bad way to look at it though. I look at making a little money now as an exchange for getting experience for something that pays worthwhile. There’s some really great trucking gigs out there if you have a clean record and put your time in
>>20956547I still hate all of your drivers.
>>20960619https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2MZ1q9m1OIThats what this dude made in training during the slow season for my company. Every random driver Ive spoken to for the company averages above 1k a week. Im not a complete retard dude, I did do some research and ran every finding by actual truckers before making a decision. >>20960645Haha why is that?
>>20960647This puts you in literally the top .5% of truckers. At orientation it was so depressing. Some of the guys were literally retarded.
>>20957940Or just work a company local job and not get fucked over like that
>>20960652The thing that sealed the deal is millis only wants liek 2500 for their trucking schooling too. Pay for the hotel, gives you a ride to and from school and the hotel and covers breakfast and lunch. For us with only 5 guys in the class we just took damaged trailers/tires to the other terminals to get our 10 hours of seat time in to graduate the class, millis paid for literally everything while we were on the road doing that last week. And my fucking instructor is a 40 year vet with 5 million mile no incident record. The CEO specifically went out of his way to spend like an hour with us when we went up to the company head quarters. I feel pretty confident in the company I chose. Im sure theres gonna be some realities that Im just not considering but I just dont feel like itll be anything the company can really do about it actively considering what OTR is.
>>20960409I spend about a half hour at the start of my day "pretripping" and waiting for paperwork, I then drive x hours to a split or a terminal, sometimes wait a bit but usually no more than 10-15 minutes for the other driver or dropping and hooking at the other terminal, then I drive back and spend about 20 minutes dropping my shit, parking, and going home. Usually work 8-10 hours making 3-400 each day.OTR guys are dumb and I make plenty for fairly little effort and much less time.
>>20960673Dang, that’s a steal. I paid 4800 bucks for my schooling. Orientation was also like.. maybe 80 people. I didn’t get interviewed or anything. Just got bussed through and put on a truck. I had a friend that already worked here though so I think they took that into consideration. Overall, Im sure all starter companies won’t be ideal. I kind of wish I went to Melton, but oh well. We’ll get it figured out as it goes along. - you already feel good getting in and out of tight spots? Los Angeles near about gave me a stroke the other day.
>>20960699How much experience do you need for something like that though? I’d jump on that in a second
>>20960699That sounds pretty dope dude, im definitely not trying to career OTR just i want to get those first couple of years that all of the local companies want.>>20960702Ive not encountered any super tight spots that I felt bad about yet, im sure thatll change once I start getting loads with my trainer
>>20960704Local is the way to go. I have weekends off and I got breakfast in bed and two blowjobs today and she cleaned my house.
>>20960618I do that working maybe 45 hours a week.302 for a 8 hour round trip, 5 days a week. Maybe an hour worth of bullshit before and after like I said here>>20960699>>20960704We've been hiring guys fresh out of school, though obviously you've got a training period. I think you make the same pay as out of training. I got hired in with a year and a half of local experienceR&L Carriers, I do linehaul. City P&D isn't too bad though, hourly and easy work. Linehaul at headquarters (my terminal) is at top out pay from the start, but hourly starts at 22.5 or some shit and tops out at 30ish after 3 years
>>20960711>>20960702I started off delivering to GM dealerships in the middle of Cincinnati OH and the surrounding area with a 48 or 53 liftgate tandem tractor, you'll get used to getting around
>>20947436lol enjoy watching your aluminum deck snap in half
Wait, 300 is bump limit right?
>>20947528Why are you tarping pipe?
>>20949009>>20949005Oh boy you just got dunked on
>>20960769On /sp/ its 500, which is my home board. I swear i had seen that it was 300 on this board
>>20949009Nice shoop ethan
>>20957940This, but, don't do OTR. I went to an hourly construction firm driving dump trucks and eventually doing cement mixers, and shit is braindead easy, driving the same 30 miles over and over. No hard turns, crazy entrances. Push buttons make money, OT after 8/40.
