I worked at U.S. Xpress full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Excellent computer tracking systems, with good communication within terminal staff and drivers. Good team work with all employees. And the training offers good management skills.

Cons

Low pay in comparison to the national average. High pressure for on-time loads when it is not in your control, too many issues with other terminals trying to take care of their own trucks, and not enough support with corporate terminal. No room for error, and lack of taking responsibility from upper management.

    Pros

    U.S. Xpress has a lot of different dedicated and regional runs to offer drivers, the hometime is good and the fleet managers are cool. The drivers are friendly and some are very helpful with certain company issues and the equipment here at U.S. Xpress is very nice.

    Cons

    Not to much I can say about the cons but most people complain about their pay and trk repairs but it all comes with the territories. Your pay is based on experience and you must wait your turn in line so when they do get to your trk they can focus on getting it fixed properly.

    Advice to Management

    Again, not much but one bit of advice I would like to share is that the communication level between drivers and fleet managers/owners could be a lot better.
