First Truck Driving Job
Professional Truck Driver - Over the Road (Former Employee) –  Medway, OHJanuary 12, 2018
Driving for US Xpress was fun, as it was my first Truck Driving Job. It was a great experience, stressful and hard to do. I got lost alot, as I did not have a sense of direction. The truck was nice, but again, driving is alot of work.
Pros
Truck Driver
Cons
Still a man's World

Really messed up place to work
Over the Road Team driver (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNDecember 28, 2017
Very poor dispatching. They never knew where their trailers were located. You might spend a day just looking for an empty trailer! Driver managers were less then desirable and didn't give a darn about their drivers!

Great place to work with a lot of miles.
Over The Road Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNSeptember 22, 2017
A typical day at US Xpress always started with a "Good Morning, Good Afternoon, or a Good Evening" with every dispatcher shift change. You just seemed to know your day was going to be better than just a good day at those little words.
The Dispatchers were alway there to give a hand at every turn if so needed.
The atmosphere at the terminals was always upbeat and energetic.
Pros
Having the freedom to grow with the company
Cons
Family time

Over The Road Truck Driver/Data Entry (Former Employee) –  Arlington, TXJuly 13, 2017
Fast-paced, stressful and always receiving loads to deliver that were already late. Always trying to catch-up and still behind. That's the nature of the business but seemed to be a constant.
Pros
Travel experience
Cons
Behind the 8-ball all the time to deliver late loads

Great Starter Company

Us xpress is a great starter company for those who want to see the country and also get valuable experience over the road. One phone call can have you sitting on the couch to earning good money in a matter of weeks.

We care,,,,, not !!
Over the road Driver (Former Employee) –  Shippensburg PASeptember 2, 2015
I worked for this company as an OTR driver. I was there for 1 year 1 month. In my 20 past years of driving professional this company is the worst company I have ever driven for. The problem with the company is they just DONT CARE about you. You are a number thats it. Miles were the biggest problem in the begining miles were plentyful around 2,900 a week but after 6 months of being here the miles started to decrease rapidly. My miles slipped to just under 2,000 a week some weeks were even less !!!! It got to the point where Id call in and yell at the fleet owner to get me miles. If you don't open your mouth they will walk all over you and give you lousy miles and you will not make any money. Getting home for home time is a huge problem. Benifits ,,,,, what benifits they offer the standard medical and dental but the prices are through the roof, No paid vacation and no 401K are huge turnoffs. If your looking for long haul miles this is the wrong company most trips are under 450 miles and the sit game happens here often. In my option avoid this company !!!

If you really want to know how bad this company is type in Google US XPRESS DRIVER REVIEWS and what you read really is true !!!
Pros
None !!!!
Cons
To many to list !!!!

Dispatch
Over the Road Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNApril 20, 2015
They are not allowed to go the extra mile for the drivers. There had been so many times that I could have got my job done easier and faster had the dispatcher been allowed to let me. Most of the dispatchers are pro driver where as those above them are not.
Pros
good equipment and safety awards
Cons
bad about home time off
