I was waiting until I had a little better grasp,how things operate here, before I posted my thread about this company. First, I will say that it was a definite culture shock, going from Swift, to Hummer. The corporate offices, are a mile down the road. We have 2 Terminals, and I think 3 dedicated drop lots, with several shared lots scattered around the mid west. I was fortunate to be at orientation during their quarterly safety meetings. They route every driver through, during a 3 day period, to participate.

It was super informative, and really gave me a good idea, of the atmosphere here. I was sure I had chosen the right company, before I was even assigned my truck. I have a great fleet Manager , who keeps me running, and has been patient with my learning curve, going from regional , to otr. Swift spoiled me, the way I was routed, from start to finish made it really easy to get lazy with trip planning.

Managing my clock was a lot different, too. I went from maximizing my 14 hour clock, to maximizing my 70 hour clock. Which I will be working on for some time to come, lol. We are also only given our Origin address, and our final address, and any additional stops, or VIA Points. Then it us up to us, to plan it, and get there, adding in our fuel stops.

Any stores not on our list we can fuel up to a maximum of 60 gallons. So far, My shortest week was miles, and my longest was just under The dedicated work I did with Swift was good work, but I can definitely say, that I prefer the otr driving better.

Each has their own unique benefits, and challenges. For myself, I am glad that I started out Regional first, and then went otr. The multiple backing opportunities, the Long Island, and Jersey City driving, and the crazy NE winter we had, better prepared me for the situations that I encountered my very first week driving. If it weren’t for places like Uniondale, or Elmsford, NY, my first week would have been a disaster.

The pay structure here is different. I was quoted 40cpm, and it is. My base pay is 24cpm, my safety bonus pay is 4cpm, and my per diem pay is 12cpm, for a total of 40cpm The safety bonus pay is paid out weekly, unless we have an incident, and then if warranted a certain amount will be deducted from that, for a specified time. Any raises are to our base pay. The per diem is constant.

The compensation is incremental, so that it is prorated to however long we were detained, laid over, or broken down. I have to say, that the detention pay, so far for me, has been a great addition, because the time spent has fit into my planned hours and routes.

I know that this won’t always work out, but so far it has. We do hire new drivers, but we hire specifically from a few local schools. The training time is a 6 to 8 month program, where the Trainer is always in the passenger seat, no team driving. It is broken up into 4 phases, covering our 4 major areas of operation. Each phase starts with a trainer in the truck for 2 to 4 weeks, followed by 2 to 4 weeks of solo driving.

After that they start at 36cpm with the base rate at 20cpm. Our equipment currently is all or newer. We run Kenworth Ts, Peterbilt ‘s, International Lts, and Volvo ‘s and ‘s the volvo’s are our team trucks My truck is a LT, and had k miles on it, barely broken in. We are governed at 68mph, and installed with Bendix systems. We have a generous idle policy, and we are also allotted 2 free washes a month, to keep our trucks, nice and shiny. This is all I can think of, at the moment, but will definitely answer any questions I can.

Rob-Fire breath, Brett, and Big Scott. Many other’s as well, but these were to the main people who had to sometimes set me right, whenever I needed it. Terminal: A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their “home base” if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Regional: Regional Route Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company’s structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Per Diem: Getting paid per diem means getting a portion of your salary paid to you without taxes taken out. It’s technically classified as a meal and expense reimbursement. Truck drivers and others who travel for a living get large tax deductions for meal expenses. The Government set up per diem pay as a way to reimburse some of the taxes you pay with each paycheck instead of making you wait until tax filing season.

Getting per diem pay means a driver will get a larger paycheck each week but a smaller tax return at tax time. We have a ton of information on our wiki page on per diem pay HOS: HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations. Susan D.
