Area dependant..but in my zone for the area its the best pay you can make outside of high college degree lvl jobs, or federal jobs...also depends on route tonage incentive. you get a day rate, or you get incentive, if the incentive is greater than the day rate you get that...for example your rate is 160USD a day..if you incentive is 160.01 or 200 or more you get that instead... If you are a swing driver, someone who drives whatever is needed for day, commercial, industrail, residental, then you get a flat rate of 250.00 a day in my area...thats 6k a month pre-tax and anything else you have come out. but you still get their Chinese overtime....which is day rate, divided by hours worked that week, to show your base hourly for week, then half that is the over time..i normally bring home 1000USD to 1100 USD a week..been working there 7 months now...i had 7 years previous experience.
