Con-way ups driver pay, adds bonus

| August 12, 2014

Con-way Truckload announced it has increased its per-mile pay, increased layover pay and added a new incentive bonus, all of which goes into effect Sept. 7.

Con-way says when combined, the compensation changes bring its pay for new-hire experienced drivers to 42.5 cents a mile.

The bonus can be earned by reaching certain mileage or continuous employment thresholds, Con-way says, and will be paid as an annual bonus up to 3 cents per mile from the previous 12 months.

The layover pay is increasing from $60 to $75 per day.

    guest, I have an amazing ability to pick up on sarcasm and detect that you may be a little distrusting of carriers… Plenty of awful ones out there to be sure, but Conway TL is a great carrier for drivers/ICs.
