    in my time at western I made a lot of friends, had an amazing manager, made solid pay, and even a good truck

    Cons

    i think my problems with western were the extended coverage and some of the hoops you jump threw for simple things like getting trailers and home time

    I have been working at Western Express full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My Dm William Judge is the man. Along with the other DMs at my terminal. He keeps me moving and try’s to accommodate my wishes. I’m home every weekend unless I choose to stay out. If your looking for a good company to start a driving career give them a call!

    Cons

    I have no complaints other than the normal flaws of being a truck driver

    I have been working at Western Express full-time

    Pros

    they give you the freedom as long as you're doing your job. i like how honest my dispatcher is and how they dont harass you as long as you're getting the job done. there's a lot of freedom to opwerate the way you like when they know they can count on you. i have been with 4 different companies and none have been as good as western. everyone treats me really well int eh bethlehem office and the regional program really works out well with where i live. i plan on being here for 10 years

    Cons

    sometimes the fuel policy is a little frustrating, would like a little more freedom to fuel where i want. they are getting better but i feel like the solutions are geared to help the new guys who dont know how to plan their trips as well.
