    Wonder how long you have to drive for them before they fork over the two grand?

    Most low paying truckload companies have a revolving door at their employment office.

    And the wording, "competitive pay". Competitive with what? Those sign on bonus', are nothing but a gimmick. Usually takes 2 years to collect it. I always have said, just come right out and tell a driver what you will pay him. Forget the fuel bonus, sign on bonus, and all the rest of the strings attached.

    BIG R GUY how about the lease programs that some truckload companies try to talk newbies into.
    I think after a driver gets sick of working under those plans they will owe the company so much they won't be able to leave until the debt is paid.
    It must be the best deal for the companies to saddle their lease drivers with fuel & everything that goes along with being an owner operator.
    Also I've heard a few of those companies have the drivers sign an exclusive contract,so if the miles drop off they can't haul for any other company to keep up with their payments.

    The more crummy deals I see in trucking now days.
    I know I was totally blessed to have gotten a good Teamsters job early on,& am now retired with a pretty nice pension.
    Well at least till its cut next year,although even with the cut, my deal is still a lot better than newbies just getting into trucking.

    Lease, purchase is one of the biggest scams out there. When you cannot make it, the company is happy to take your truck back, and lease it to the next guy. If they do not like you, they simply starve you.

    Although heres the thing,I know a guy that just graduated from a trucking school.
    Got his CDL & can't get hired anywhere,truckload companies require at least 6 months experience.
    Anything local the requirement is at least 2 years.
    So he asks me how do you get any seat time if nobody will put you on?
    I told him to go get a part time job working on a trucking dock,other than that route I don't know.

    $2000.00 sign on bonus is usually paid in 6-12 months.
    $5000.00 Longevity bonus would most likely be paid in 24-36 months, hence the "longevity dispersal" or (maybe) after having been employed 24+ months to "qualify".

    Working a dock isn't always a answer as some companies WANT DRIVING EXPERIENCE, so go figure.

    That was a crap "training school" as the better "training schools" have a few companies waiting for graduates.

    That guy is best off going to a large carrier and going through their driver training program while being credited for the program he completed.
    NO Point in paying twice for CDL training.

    I went through a Driver Training School in late '98 and didn't have any experience yet I got hired as a straight truck driver (the first time with the current company as this is the 4th and LAST time).
    In '99 I moved on to another company pulling Flatbed, then another company pulling Dry Vans, back when "Have a CDL, Get a Job" was still applicable.
