    Pros

    950 minimum pay, walmart and sams club are easy to find and dock into, in comparison to other dedicated accounts. you can get home every night if you drive a day cab . paid vacation

    Cons

    constantly shifting sleep schedule, super Tight schedule keeps you in a constant hurry, having to deal with slow stores is a huge headache. the gps on the drive tech is garbage. no sick day or holidays off. day cab are dirty and drivers smoke in them all the time

    Advice to Management

    minimize the time the drive is awake before his load is due. the Dockout time needs to be 30 minutes sooner. drivers should be give radio to be able to talk to stores. All this on time delivery is bs walmark are open 24hr a day and i get paid by the mile, dont need a monkey on my back

    Pros

    Plenty of miles, competitive pay, best equipment in the business.

    Cons

    No paid vacation, have to work weeks on the road to earn a few days home.

    Advice to Management

    Pay raises for team drivers instead of just solo drivers. Maybe give 2 days off per 1 week on the road. Give incentives to work over holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Pros

    Not many. Late model tractors but trailers are usually junk.

    Cons

    Where do I start! One of the most dishonest companies I've ever worked for. Too much propaganda and lip service. To many "calculated tactics" to keep drivers dependant and not independant. Fair company to start with if you have no experience but they don't have a 110% turn-over rate by accident. USXpess, like most of the other large logistic companies have forgotten the most basic principal in this industry. Drivers don't work for the company . . . The company is supposed to be working for us - it's called driver support, and there's damn little of that in this industry any more. Your just a number here, disposable and interchangeable with any other driver out there. Experience and dependability mean absolutely nothing to these people and they will throw you under the bus the moment you stop being an asset and become a liability. This is the truth. If you have more than a years experience. Look elsewhere . . . Seriously!

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell what you've been shovelling to your employees for the past 8 years.

    Pros

    I spent 10 years with USX and started at the entry level and had plenty of opportunities to move up with in the company with ample opportunity to advance my career.

    Cons

    really the only item I would say would be communication, sometimes translation is lost between all the different departments of the goals that the company is trying to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    rely on your talent you have hired to achieve goals

    Pros

    If you have the hours, they'll have the freight! Also, you can make mmuch more than the recruiter outlines to you. I do and my family reaps the benefits.

    Cons

    No different than other trucking companies. I don't socialize with the drivers too often because I am too busy making money.

    Pros

    They pay for your expenses.

    Cons

    Too big to help the individual driver. Not enough miles as solo, everything good goes to a team.
