dedicated regional driver
Dedicated Driver (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 10, 2016
I'll probably stay with this company a long time.
Been here 4 months, Was running automotive freight for toyota. Now running a dedicated account. Home every weekend. Daily pay rate for the account I'm on. I like to know where im going and what to expect. So this works for me. Always bring home $1,000+ a week. Regional pay is .44 per mile. Tractors are not the best out there. But they do maintain them pretty good. I have a older international 9400 eagle. They let me choose between 4 trucks. 2 were automatic, other smelt like one big marlboro Red. I told them my truck needed some love. They put all new Tires/brakes/oil change/ clutch brake in over the weekend. I really have no complaints yet. I do Wish I had a APU/ power converter/ refrigerator, But thats ok. Bought a 12v. electric cooler, mini 12v. Oven at a pilot since I dont have a microwave or power converter. It's no 2016 kenworth with a flat screen & Direct Tv and all the luxuries like I used to have. But I'd trade all that 2x over. I like it here. Feel right at home.
Good pay, friendly dispatchers, low stress route (for me anyways)
equipment... but Its not terrible. I like my truck.
