Re: Model 05 Silver Eagle

I applyed today to pepsi to drive the bay truck making local delivery's in roswell,nm. they are suppose to call me for a phone interview in about 3 hrs.If they are ready to hire me I'll tell um soon as I get the truck thru the terminal and returned to prime I'll be in roswell.they start at 48,000/yr. and your home everynight. I have just over 6 months in with prime. If OTR was hr pay based and not by the mile I would hang around. I worked 70 hrs but on;y made 400. last week becuase I was stuck in jersy city. Until they change the way the OTR company's pay it sucks. get your CDL get Your expirence and after 6 months start appying to local company's. I'm done being alone and crying myself to sleep most nights ..its alot like modern day jail. very structured. u sleep **** drive.

Re: Model 05 Silver Eagle

Point blank if your "ON duty" your employer should pay you by the hour. U do tons of work thats on duty like on the dock loged as off duty ...etc. OTR sucks 1 week u make 900. the next 300 and I'm looking for my way out ASAP so if your lucky u may make 1400. u sit in traffic guess what u make nothing. to spend everynight alone in your truck and work like a slave 70 80+hrs is not worth it. drive for 6 months if u can make it that long and start applying to local company's

I'll wave at you as you drive past us!

For everyone else's benefit... The Pepsi place in Roswell is across the street from where we are parked.
