What is your choice as a company driver

company driver

Truck drivers that are just getting into the business will most certainly go work as a company driver , they will be given a choice whether to work per mile or get a percentage out of gross pay.
Not all companies offer these two options, some will not let you decide.
I believe, there is only one suitable option for a company driver and that is to get paid a percentage out of gross. Drivers that are interested in pay per mile will work more hours and drive longer distances, it does not mean they will make more money. The key is to understand that your employer is a businessman, and he is employing you to make money, he is not interested in giving you miles, he is interested in pay per load, long-run loads aren’t always good-paying ones, sometimes company is forced to send theire driver to do longer distance just because the driver wants his miles, after that they book a few short ones to make more money. When you work for a percentage out of gross you are in the same boat with the company, if a long miles pay big buck you are happy and if you can get a short run that pays well why not, I would say you get a more accurate return for your work. This system makes you money-oriented,plus in return you get crucial experience and knowledge of the market, which can help to start your business at some point int in the future.
