Just hired on at conway.i am supposed to start next week.signed a bunch of papers.one of the papers i signed said during orienatation i would be paid 40 hours plus a base pay.how much is the base pay?i know i should have asked but as i have been on lay off for 5 months i just want to work.
 
I'm not sure if it is everywhere, but the last time I heard about orientation or 'training' pay, it was a flat rate, and nothing else. It was based on 40 hours a week, but you didn't get the benefit of the mileage pay that a linehaul driver would get. It is just a flat rate, regardless of what job you are performing.

That is correct. While you are going through orientation and training, you will bet paid 40 hours a week, even though you are going to work more than 40 hours a week when you go for your linehaul training. It is only for 2 weeks I think. It sucks but what are you going to do? Good luck, welcome aboard, and have a safe trip there FrostyMug.

Or how long you are on that job. I have seen guys be gone for 14 hours and get a whopping 8 hour pay day.

I did a 55 hours on my linehaul training week...got paid for 40.

It was worth it.

If the newbies can't handle that then they will never have the dedication required to be a Con-Way DSR.

Correct, I also did about a 55 hour week for my 'orientation'. Thats kind of why i said it's a flat rate of pay for the week, regardless of how many hours, or what job you do.
 
My training week consisted of 3 days of videos, one night all on the dock, and one night on our dock with an hour ride along to an FAC so I could work that dock. Never got any serious training but I did get paid for all my time. I think looking back that I would have sacrificed some pay for some more training on the CON-WAY system. Whatever...

Things sure have changed. 24 years ago, I did two days in the city, three days on the dock and then it was on to linehaul where I am still at today. I did get paid for everything I did.

I do not agree with the 40 hour flat rate. I think if you are working, you should get paid, period. But, this is the policy as of now and you can either except it or go elsewhere. So, I am sure many of those FNG's appreciate just having a job right now. Good luck to them and well to all of the rest of us. Work hard, sleep good and have a great life.
