    The company I am dropping driving sprinter for can't seem to book 2,000 miles a week. One week a co-worker only got 700 loaded miles, that was a full week, from Friday to Friday.

    A company that can get you 3,000 miles a week, consistently, is awesome! I swear it's get a load, wait a day.

    After all, what good is getting $1,000/mile if you get zero miles?
    None, whatsoever

    Now I'm not saying every week is great..there is good and bad weeks. Like i said before I think my company will take a load that they won't even make money on, they just take it to keep us moving. Maybe your company isn't willing to the same.

    I hope so. Or he got around to reading the contract got paid and is gone.

    From company add posted two days ago looking for Sprinter Driver. Company name omitted, but not hard to figure out with past posts.

    Most people like to post bulletin board material. What about the the stuff that doesn't work out or go that well?

    I often wonder what the turnover percentage is at any given carrier? I'm sure someone has that figure, somewhere. Care to post that information for newbies & all to see!?

    Newbies get on here & see this "lifestyle" that we have. What percentage of people fail because they aren't focused on the bottom line?
