Don't want to burst anyone's high's but don't expect to get paid until next friday. I can't see them paying us the first week it is probable 1 week behind for pay. Just to let you guys know so your expecting it. Spoke to someone who thought we were going to be paid this Friday, Don't think that's going to happen. Just 10 more hours till I have to get up for FBF. Can't wait see you all tommorrow.

Your pay isnt going to be much at all. Depending on how many dependants you have, many wont see more then 400 a week. The pay is very rough for the first few years especially since most wont ever see truck.
