I've seen ads in the paper lately and I was wondering if they pay well.

I worked for them for 11 years and for the most part did well. I worked hard and made a decent wage. I also ran a dedicated run for 8 years .
The reason I'm no longer there is not personal it was time to move on and do other things .

Now to try to answer your question Ive heard Sikeston terminal pays .35 cpm based on experience .Dexter terminal pays .30 cpm and has round trip runs.

Thank you. I spoke with recruiting today and she said basically the same. They're looking for a dedicated driver from dexter to dallas. I have been IT'D hauling flatbeds and tablets for 4a years, and a good dedicated run is just what I want. Time to be home for a while. So I think im going to apply!

There is a PTI that is a shuttle service, but S & J Potashnick Transportation, Inc., dba PTI or Potashnick Transportation, Inc., in an over the road trucking operation located in Sikeston, MO. I can see how that could be easily confused.

there pay sucks you only make per mile and most places are starting you at .22 cent a mile. i took runs to cleveland ohio all the time and for 6 hours of a trip only made 50.oo. the job sucks you are on call 12 hours a day and may only work 6 hours. yo only get paid for the time your in van driven you don't get paid to sit and wait for a run. If you have to stay and help the train crew you make minimum wage well waiting. the job just sucks and so does it dispatchers and management.

PTI of Sikeston, MO is a dry van company. Our lowest paid (least experienced) drivers make 30 cents per mile. We run all 48 states and are always hiring. I'm proud to say that in the last few years, our driver retention has increased, pay rates have increased, and we have become a more safety conscious company.
The PTI's referred to above are not PTI in Sikeston, MO. They are about a different PTI.
Thanks for listening, and if you ever need an OTR job, give us a call.

If a Driver has a valid CDL Class A and been off the road for 4 years can he still drive for PTI? Or will you make him go back to truck driving school?

I woked at the pti out of memphis tn and the management stinks! I got no respect, worked my ass off and was not appreciated at all for my time or efforts. It was never you did well, it seem like she or the rest of the drigers would find a reason to be negative towards me and rude, which thats not a good thing! I sure do hope your company is better than the one here because they are one step from getting chewed the hell out! But i must say the asst manager has always been nice to me; the one and only.

WOW! That is sad! My husband works for PTI in ND. Started out at $17 hour. In the slow season he gets 25-35 hours week depending on the snow. He also gets paid to wait for the RR crew. Spring to Fall he gets ALOT of overtime. ;0)

In Washington state they pay a little above minimum wage for yard drivers, hourly.
For long haul drivers .22 per mile while driving and a little above minimum wage while assisting the crew. They pay nothing for waiting. For 12 hours shift you can get 5 hours payed.
No wonder they are hiring people constantly.

I am new to this company and it seemed like a good job to consider, but once I started getting paid I felt so different. I am looking for work to leave. I can not live off the income let alone waiting up to four hours before I even get a call to do a local run and only get paid for 2 hours being up for 12 hours. This job is for someone who doesn't mind putting there life in danger for some change.
