What is salary-based pay?
Salary-based pay is a pay plan that starts with a guaranteed weekly salary, and then adds mileage and performance/safety bonuses on top.
Why don't you just pay a cents-per-mile rate?
At Mast Trucking, we specialize in refrigerated freight. We're a multiple-stop company, servicing grocery stores and food warehouses across the region. We spend about 80% of our time hauling freight to the East Coast area. All of these factors keep us from running extremely high miles. Since we aren't a high-mile company, we think it would be unfair to you as a driver to earn a flat cents-per-mile rate. A salary-based pay plan ensures that you have a consistent paycheck, even when your mileage numbers aren't that high.
What kind of money will I make?
As a family-owned company, we understand that taking home a good paycheck is important to both you and your family. On our salary-based pay plans, you'll make more than the national average for truckers.
What are the benefits of a salary-based pay plan?
There are many great reasons for salary-based pay plans. Here's a few:
- Consistent paycheck - you'll know what to expect from week to week
- Have a low mile week? No worries! You may see a slight dent, but it won't be the roller-coaster ride of the mileage paycheck.
- You and your family's budget is much easier to plan
- Have to sit and wait at a receiver? You'll still be making money.
