    I don't know your financial situation, but if it were me I would not work for this company. Here's the math - Let's say you drive 30 miles/day x 5 days per week. You would put on 600 miles per month without reimbursement. The government rate is 56.5 cents per mile so, you are eating $339.00 per month. In one year that's $4,068.00 which is nothing to sneeze about - you can subtract that from your $40,000 so now you're making $35,932 a year.

    Now, I used 30 miles a day as an example. In reality, it will probably be a lot more and you may really regret working for that company. I generally put on anywhere from 20 miles to over 100 miles in a day.
