This is a good place to work if you’re willing to do your job. If you are lazy and want everything done for you and can’t figure out how to do your job without a babysitter, keep looking.
There are no perfect trucking companies out there. Every single one has it’s issues.

This one works for me. I get home when I want, take my vacations when I want, and make a good salary . My secret?? Keep the left door closed.

Pay is not good and miles are not goodthey don’t care about you as a driver. Just do what they say and don’t question things. And don’t even think about getting home when you want to. If you want to be home on a Monday make sure you ask to be home Friday that way you might actually make it home.
Don’t waste your time applying. They will lie to you just to get you in the door. 30 empty trucks on the lot should be a hint.

Not sure how long this company will remain in business. It is a sinking ship with management that is not interested in helping you succeed.

Lots of harassment happens here too. Not a fun place to work.
Pros
The hours aren't terrible
Cons
Management, threat of losing our jobs.

Best company I've ever worked for, always concerned for their drivers and very helpful on getting you what you need .
The company has a family type atmosphere and responsive dispatchers, I would return to work for them at any ti.e.

I applied with this company and was completely honest about my driving career and myself. They never ran any reports of any kind as I asked for copies of all that trucking companies have to run to hire a driver. They haven't run one report but denied me employment.
Pros
None
Cons
All and everything and hiring manager

Great company to work for, great amount of miles available. You will always find someone at their offices when you call days or nights. Maintenance is always on point with the equipment.

I started to drive for them as an over the road driver. Last year I got sick because I cached a virus somewhere in Oregon or California. When i got back to work after 4 month they helped me by giving me a local driver position. This helped me with my recovery.
I only quit with them to get a higher paying job to be able to pay all my medical bills. if it was not for that I would still be working for them.

Like the fact that they have multiple yards throughout the Unites States. The majority of the loads are drop and hook and the equipment is pretty new.
Cons
Dispatch personnel need to work together instead of against each other

They keep you running, and they will deadhead you home if need be. My pay has always been right, they keep buying new trucks and trailers too, no junk here. I told dispatch that everytime they send me to Nestle in Dallas, I have to wait for 4 or 5. Hours then get stuck there. They quit sending me!
Pros
Good dispatch and equipment
Cons
CPM needs to be bumped up

Is a good environment but the lack of raises and not enough pay for the things we do, they don't appreciate the effort of the work area and they try to push you down to stay in that place until they get you tire and make you quit

If this company worked as hard trying to make driver's money as they do at trying to pay a driver as little as possible , a driver might be able to pay his bills. Stay away from this company!!!
Pros

Low miles and low pay...if you like working for free this is the company for you!

Outwest Express LLC is a very competitive employer and is only getting bigger and better every day. This company does not only see you as another number behind the wheel. They emphasis the importance of being with family as much as possible and go above and beyond to make this possible. I would never see myself working for any other employer in this industry.

I overall enjoyed my time there beside having to deal with poor management and no raises. Company treated me decent but at the end of the day you are just an employee.
Pros
Free meals every so often, christmas parties, and employee birthday celebrations
Cons
No raises, work overtime with no compensation
