If you are looking for a feeder job , you most likely get hired as a temp and the sleeper jobs go to high ranking seniority employees, pay starts off at progression yearly 4 yrs o believe to top rate , insurance after a year , I really don't think off street hires get sleeper team positions , only as sub contractors during Christmas season , hope this helps !!!Ha! No info then I take it. Thanks
Ive never seen a brown sleeper cab? Ive seen white Volvo sleepers with the letters ups on the door. Didn't look too legitThey use more sleeper teams than you think... and with fedex trucking more and more things straight through do t be surprised if we get more sleeper teams trickling through...
Have never seen a brown sleeper ever in our yard or any other yard I've been to... i have seen a brown sleeper with logos for ups freight...The hubs in my state lease white sleeper tractors and put the UPS shield on the door. I have not seen an older one, all fairly new.
And they tell us that when you are out there you ARE a gypo sleeper team....A senior guy bids the sleeper run, then he picks whoever he wants to be his co-driver. Might be another older driver, or I've even seen a brand new guy in feeders who hasn't even achieved seniority get picked. This job will put you in another tax bracket. A guy I still keep in touch with has made over 150k the last couple of years. The team splits the mileage evenly, paywise. Both drivers make the same $$$$.
