    Current Employee - Regional Truck Driver in Shippensburg, PA

    I have been working at U.S. Xpress full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a truck driver, you really will be rolling in the best equipment out there. The trucks are equipped with so many state of the art safety features. I have been impressed with the level of professionalism of the trainers too. Finally, the company knows that its drivers are the major revenue sources. I'm hoping for a long and prosperous career.

    Cons

    There is no perfect place to work. This is trucking so Murphy's law applies. And, like any big corporation out there, there are communication issues and sometimes there are mixed messages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As with any situation, communication is key to keeping everyone on the same page.

    You will definitely be able to say, that you've been to every state, in the continental US.

    Being able to keep pre-approved time off, can be challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some rewards for good drivers, could be a wise investment.

    Pros

    Home daily. Good money. Some of the people are great.

    Cons

    You're expendable. Don't show you're a Christian. They'll get rid of you. Some of the people are horribly deceitful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone the same regardless of faith. No Favoritism. Be honest. So much dishonesty in office.

    I have been working at U.S. Xpress full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Seeing the Upper Midwest. Great "Supervisor". New tractor. Good Medical Benefits. Able to bring the Pooch along. Never an issue with the Gas Card. Repairs were minimal and i personally had hardly any down time. Unloading became an addiction after I lost 60 pounds without changing my eating habits.

    Cons

    If you don't like hard physically demanding work, don't bother applying. I was not told upon hire about these demands. I found out each day as I learned exactly what needed to be done. Certain people are favorites and get the good easy and well paying runs. I was not one of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have consideration for a Driver returning from rest periods. Putting a Michigan Driver on a 4 am Indiana run leaves that driver with very little time to get much done on his or her time off.

    Pros

    Great company if you are just looking to learn some insight on transportation and logistics. Pay is ok for the area but could be better.

    Cons

    Looking for advancement or good pay this is not the company. Many people are promoted based on who the know and not what they know.

    Pros

    Equipment is kept in good condition.

    Cons

    forget home time, pay sucks, getting anything from the garage is a chore, dispatchers are useless ( there are a few good ones but good luck finding them) no miles, cannot refuse loads, high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop treating drivers like you don't need them, get drivers home more. stop hiring anti people dispatchers. a company will not run without employees.

    Let developers brainstorm innovations on more modern technology platforms. Get off the iSeries DB2 - yesterday. Offer more vacation.
