    I have been working at Western Express full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good company to work for

    Cons

    Do not pay overtime, But they keep you busy with trailer repairs such as replacement of dolly legs, sub frames, swing doors, flooring and cross members, roofs, top and bottom rail repairs, axles, nose rails, hub and drums and brakes, pin plates, Road calls all hours of the day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying overtime and you would keep more Mechanics
