Drove to Irving, Texas. Three times.
Driver (Former Employee), Irving, TexasJuly 10, 2014
Pros: got to hang out in dallas for nine days, on the companies dime. got reimbursed for gas money. and paid for orientation. (thank god, i drove my own car!)
Cons: getting a bad trainer and not even making it out of the terminal.
Drove to orientation with my bags packed ready to go after finishing on friday, was told I had to retake the drug screen again on the following Monday so I drove back home. Came back on the following Tuesday past the drug screen again. Waited to get assigned with a trainer, they did not have one come friday, was sent home again only to get a phone call – more... to come back on Tuesday. Trainer shows up Thursday, instead of going out trainer decides to do a restart so i'm at the terminal for another two days. Spent the night in the trainers cab once. I requested a non smoker, got a chain smoker and a heavy snorer. Nothing against smoking while you're driving down the road, but having one after the other while inside with the windows up and not moving is something else. Also keeping a big ol cup full of used cigarette butts in your cab (over one hundred or so, no joke) and refusing to throw them out was not cool with me. After spending two days in the terminal with the trainer I decided I was NOT going to be able to stay with him for 5 weeks. So I packed my gear. Turned my key in and went home. Not sure if this is helpful, the only thing I can say is getting a decent trainer is what will make or break you. Not only u.s.x. but any o.t.r. company. – less

good work place
OTR Semi Truck Driver (Current Employee), olive branch,msJuly 8, 2014
this is a good place to work if you like working on the road.
management is ok some are very nice while others could use an adjustment. also always seem to be wasting a lot of unpaid time waiting to locate & then driving to pick up empty trailers for next load

Scary
Driver (Former Employee), ChambersburgJuly 2, 2014
This company will charge you a dollar per mile if you drive out of route by ten miles!

I did NOT just make that up! I am so glad I had my car at orientation to run away from these people.

Even a friend of mine that worked his way into the Dollar General account had to quit from how often his equipment broke down and how low quality the student hires – more... are that they expected him to train.

USX wants you to believe they are big and successful because they are doing something right, but they are not. They lose great accounts (and smart drivers too) by changing their terms on a dime. They expect you to stop your truck and wait for dispatch to confirm you if POLICE are detouring you! Or they'll keep your money!? What a terrible company! – less

OTR Driver- Drivers be warned not what your looking for.
driver (Former Employee), elmira nyJuly 1, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
What they don't tell you is they hold your pay for 4 weeks. This is nothing but a revolving company with a very high turn over. If you want home time forget it. I did the training in TN did my first load and when I didn't get my paycheck in my account as promised I called to see why. They tell me it's company policy but was never disclosed to me at – more... any time during training nor is it in the hand book. When I asked for my pay they came and took my truck without me knowing. I should have know better when I got to the hotel it was roach infested and they did nothing. Then the so called meals they provide during training was a bagged lunch. But still I stuck it out because my recruiter promised me everything I was looking for in a company and did not deliver on any of it... IF it sounds too good to be true then it is....... – less

Excellent company
Driver (Current Employee), Fontana, CAMay 22, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: schedule
As with most over the road companies the downside is always the schedule. But compensation is good and the company is about as good as it gets for beginners. Especially if you land a dedicated route or account.

Friendly, accepting, warm and embrasing ladies from beginning to end .
Switchboard Operator (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNMarch 31, 2014
Pros: the pros of being employed by u.s. xpress were all that i experienced, i cannot even name a time that i was unhappy being present there both mentally and physically.
A typical day at work at U.S Xpress was totally awesome I really enjoyed learning all of the completely different ways to assist customers based on my co-workers' experiences, techniques, ways of life, and versatility. This was one of the most wonderful experiences I have ever had the pleasure of being introduced to . I found my co-workers to be friendly, – more... polite, helpful, eager to embrace me into their circle, open, and totally accepting of me as a new comer. As far as there being any difficult parts of the job, there weren't any accept for the day my assignment was over due to the position being temporary ( via a staffing agency). I only wish that I could have continued on with this position or any position to be able to continue enjoying the people I was surrounded by . – less

Very Productive
Class A CDL Driver (Former Employee), Berwick, PAMarch 25, 2014
US Xpress is a really great place to work when you have the drive to do what the position requires of you. The staff there are very friendly and try their best to help drivers maintain a steady income and secure financial future. The work sometimes is back breaking but the end result is a decent paycheck that you can use to provide for yourself and – more... your family. – less

Long hours of over-night driving. Learned about defensive driving. Hardest part was long days and short nights. Most enjoyable was seeing the country.
