    Former Employee - Linehaul Driver in South Bend, IN
    Former Employee - Linehaul Driver in South Bend, IN

    I worked at Estes Express full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I felt like I was part of the family within the Elkhart terminal (before they moved to South Bend) and part of an extended family when I went outside of my immediate routine. For me, that was the most important thing. Unfortunately, I was a victim of the economic slowdown. Now, due to medical reasons, I cannot return to driving. I still won't knock the job at any cost.

    Cons

    Had a few bad experiences with a couple of the employees with other terminals, but nothing that was unmanageable. Issues were dealt with appropriately.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Estes Express in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    When I applied, it was fair but very slow. It took 1 month to get hired. I don't know how long it should take, but I have been hired in one percent of the time this company takes
