U.S. Xpress Class A CDL Truck Driver Review

Not worth it

They were terrible about scheduling routes efficiently. Would sometimes be stuck sitting in other states for days at a time while going months on end with no home time. Pay isn't terrible IF they keep you rolling, they just usually don't.

Pros

decent trucks

Cons

poor route planning. Don't get you in for maintenance when requested.

It’s what you make it and expect

So I was on a dedicated Walmart account with USXPRESS, as a first time experience with any company I believe it was a great starting place and also could have been long lasting depending on your what’s and expectations. I honestly would say you get paid for what you do. You’re not delivering big machines to Ford or anything like that so don’t expect that type of pay if so this not for you. You’re delivering Walmart goods and for that it pays well for the average driver. It’s simple once you get the hang of everything from the trucks to the job. You can pretty much know what to expect after about a month or less, actually on the account not including your orientation, or schooling training or anything like that before you get to this point. As a student coming in I was with a trainer on this account for about a month then I was on my own. For beginners, Give it a try with no complaints, do your best, see if you like it, if not use it as a stepping stone and move on , To Experience Drivers it’s promising work, it’s steady and fair you can get stability working this account. If you tired of being OTR but still want decent pay you can make this work. God bless, wish you the best

Great Account

US Xpress is a Mega Trucking company and everyone's experience will differ from accounts to regions. I worked on a large dedicated account on the east coast and absolutely love the work, pay, and benefits for my experience level at the time. I completed my 1st year of trucking few months ago and it was time to move on. If I had the chance to do it all over again I would probably not change a thing. However, the company lacks retention incentives and benefits to retain drivers when there is so many incentives to jump ship in the Trucking industry.
