    Well they are going to try to beat me anyways, so I'm just trying to even out the playing field.

    Not true.

    For this scenario, under DOT regulations, you are required to take another 30 minute rest period before your 8 hours are up since your last rest period, but it is unpaid.

    Unpaid only if you want the hours, I've had several occasions were they try and forced more work, told them I'll need another 30min paid break, they huff and puff and just send me home

    Question

    Don't know about the first question. All the sleeper drivers I know get paid by the mile, unless there is a delay or other work, then it reverts to an hourly wage. The sleeper jobs at my old hub varied from 3 to 5 days drive time. I believe the shortest run was about 3800 miles, and the longest was like 5700 miles. Our drivers get paid .90/mile. The drivers split everything down the middle.

    Rick Ross I'm into distribution!!

    You split miles not hours. If there is 2 hours delay time you both get paid 2 hours.

    govols019 You smell that?

    Don't worry....none would want you as the B driver.
     
  16. I am just sharing my feelings.
     
  17. You don't know me and I don't want to know you.

    P.S. Don't breathe a word of this to my co-driver.
     
  18. Do you realize why UPS doesn't keep outside hires?
