Drove at least 8 to 10 hours a day and all 48 states and I learned a lot bout trucking highway laws ,Dot regulations ,driving experience, and weight station requirements how too set my tandems for the tractor too be driven legally. Management was satisfactory when you talk too the right people, co workers were very friendly and easy too get along with. Hardest part bout job was keeping consistent miles and not having too do a lot sitting. Most enjoyable part was traveling and getting too see different parts of the world.

Slip seat operation. Orientation was a joke. Almost everything said at orientation concerning the wall mart account was wrong. Trucks were beat up and falling apart. No compensation for waiting on a load while you sat at the DC.
I was really excited when i got hired with this company, i have just recived my cdl a. And wanted to start my new career. The pay was great, the job was easy. But at the end of the day i was away from home for two months even though i was told i would be home every friday. It took a tole and i realized i am not that person that can be away from his famliy for that long no matter how much money is in the pot. Bottom line great pay, easy work, good company, good trainers, and if you can handle being away for that long than jump on it,if you have any doubts than dont, because like i found it, it is very hard being away from your home.
love driving just was told 5 days before my run was canceled

us exspress doesn't not advance there drivers. I have been with the company for fours and have tried three time for to advance. instead of giving me the chance for advancement would rather hire outside the company. Run from this company as fast as you can. the pay is the worst and raises are slow with no vacation pay. and high costing health benefits. there are a lot of better trucking co. out there.
low pay, no advancement some of the drive managers dont care about the drivers.

Overall they are a good company to work for. I cam in fresh out of school and they gave me an opportunity to learn and make some money. I left because at the time business was down and I would spend days in a truckstop waiting for a load. They looked after the long term drivers first which I understand. I never intended to stay long term because I wanted to work locally after getting some experience. I would recommend them to anyone.

long hauls over the road, you never know where you are going until they tell you, very difficult to plan for home time. like most trucking companies they want to keep you out and moving as much as they can. i did like the fact that they had automatic trucks, but I prefer manual. its your average trucking company.
