I worked at USA Truck full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Okay starter carrier

Average run is about 800 to 1000 miles

I averaged 2700

The pay is actually good for a large carrier that trains drivers

I'm still friends with my trainer to this day (I'm told I got lucky though by other current and former USA drivers...)

Cons

Severe lack of communication. They will not answer the phone or qualcomm in a timely manner on ANYTHING. You can expect to be on hold for 30 minutes or more even on urgent matters requiring immediate attention.

Trucks are governed at 62 or 63. If they are unsatisfied with your fuel economy or idle time they will cut you down to 59.

That ad in the trucking papers where they say you can "bank your home time" is an outright lie. You get 1 day of home time for every 7 days worked, can only bank up to 4 (If you work more than 28 days at a time you don't accumulate any more home time)

They will drag their feet getting you home when you're due for home time. I stayed out for 28 days at a time so I could have 4 days. They always tried to call me on the second or third day to get me to leave early. I finally stopped answering my phone if it was them while on home time.

They will try to write you up for things you're not even guilty of, that they can't even prove.

    Pros

    nothing worth mentioning except they did give me a job.

    Cons

    their equipment is in bad shape and the dispatchers do not care for the drivers

    Advice to Management

    clean the trucks inside as well as out before sending a driver out
