    Thanks everyone, I love it but my trainer is starting to **** me off, so I don't know if I will make it for 2 more weeks without slapping the. U know what out of him, plus they are only paying $175 a week for the first 3 weeks and after taxes u get $140.00 a week.... sucks

    Ok, I have one more week before I am solo with assigned truck, cant wait to start making real money, because this $100 a week is killing me

    I thought you said it was $140 a week?

    What division will you be in, flatbed or dryvan?

    Srry my bad, they pay u $375 for 3 weeks and you have to pay $200 for training every week so that leaves u $175 and after taxes u get $140.

    Hello just curiosity but at the end of your training is it paid for in that 200 a week or do they keep taking it out?
