Western Express photo of: The small lunch meals they give you at Orientation/Training from the food truck they have on site or you just get a burger with a small bag of chips. No joking you go hungry, that's it for lunch
Western Express photo of: Copper load allot of money for them but not us. Tarp your load or lose you're life.
Western Express photo of: Aluminum load sharp edges for straps, just look and see how many edge protectors you'll need and count how mand they give you. 2 on first load 2 back load and at least 1 on each colum.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Western Express.

    Interview

    Worked with recruiter over the phone. Recruiters lie, that is what they are paid to do! You will find this out very quickly during orientation! Recruiter was friendly and helpful. One word of advice, get them to send you a letter or email stating what your pay (cents per mile + Per Diem) will be after orientation & training. GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING - for legal reasons that will arise later on!
