    I have been working at Western Express full-time

    Pros

    Go with a better company like Swift, Roehl, USA Truck.

    Cons

    Regardless if you are an experienced driver in either flatbed or dry van, they will stick you with a trainer who doesn't have their own stuff together for 2 weeks and "force" you to drive in the northeast during white out conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Train your office staff better. Stop forcing your drivers to pick up loads that aren't even ready.
