COMMERCIAL OTR DRIVER (Former Employee) – Van Buren, AR – August 23, 2017
I will put it out there that USA was the best company out of the few Ive been to basically because they let me do me. Im a natural hustler so Im going to make every penny out of what I can with my hours, USA let me do that without the extra. I talked to them over the phone maybe ever 3 or 4 days. Just send the loads over the computer and I'll take it from there, any questions or problems I messaged them to decent response time. The only messed up part was when I left abruptly for my"dream" tanker position. They pitched a bf and threatened to ruin my career with an abandonment.
CDL over the road driver (Former Employee) – Van Buren, AR – August 31, 2017
I was in need of a job when the economy was bad, so I thought that I would drive truck. USA Truck offered to pay for your CDL but you paid it back. The miles where horrible and the pay rate was next to nothing. Very little home time and they would do what ever they wanted even if you made arrangements to be home on a certain day.
Senior managers seem to think employees are easy to come by and act that way. Won't compensate for overtime if you're salary even if you're not exempt no matter how many hours worked. Expected to be on call 24 hours per day with no compensation for extra time put in. Manager very demeaning and showed favoritism towards certain people. Did enjoy working with contracted carriers and drivers.
Expect overtime to be worked with no compensation.

They hire no-experience drivers fresh out of school, so that's nice. I was terminated over a mis-reported incident. It was recorded as a side swipe, which implies I hit another vehicle, which I did not.
Student Over The Road Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Van Buren, AR 72956 – June 5, 2017
DONT WORK this company. Most of their equipment is faulty piece of junk International ProStar trucks. I took my upgrade test in one of these trucks and couldn't pass after the 2nd attempt so they sent me home. At least they bought me a bus ticket. DONT work for any trucking company that has ProStar trucks in their fleets. you will be in the shop more than on the road.

USA is a great company for beginner truck drivers, they maintain a good fleet and treat their drivers fairly. They have a reimbursement program for truck driving school and have trainer drivers. A good place to get your first few years of experience.
decent equipment, good dispatch, well maintained equipment

Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Van Buren, AR – March 30, 2017
My experience is based on being a team. Most runs are dedicated or local. All dry hauls. The dispatchers are horrible and usually confused about whats going on. They treat teams horribly and think that people should only have a break to shower once a week. For every week out, you get one day off. We spent most of our time sitting around waiting to get a load.
