    Climate Express - Union, MO

    I hired on with Climate Express and had orientation on the 20th of February. Pretty standard orientation. Drive test, paperwork and training on how to use the XATA communication system. A lot like Qualcomm but cheaper.

    Got assigned a truck on Wednesday, the 22nd, and my first load that afternoon heading back to Denver, CO so I can grab the rest of my stuff. I was disappointed with the way my truck was cleaned inside. They have a detail guy that is suppose to clean the truck, but it seems that it was just swept out and made to not smell. Oh well. I was planning on deep cleaning it anyways. I got a little spoiled at May since I kept getting brand new, never used by another human, trucks. The truck I got assigned is a 09' Volvo VNL670. It had 407k on it. Overall a decent truck.

    I have since been with the company 24 days now. I have ran 9.5k miles in that time. It would of been more if the truck didn't have little issues that required me to take it back to their shop in Union to have fixed. Its just the time sitting for little things to be fixed that bugs you.

    Overall my experience here has been a positive one. They are taking possession of 50 new trucks soon and hopefully with mine being over 417K, I won't be in this one much longer. They are also building a brand new terminal in Union that will provide more room and be better for their office staff.

    They have been great so far. Another 3400 mile week in the bank, and that included swapping trucks and getting an exhaust leak fixed. I'll post some numbers when I get home next weekend.

    Only 3,400 miles? As fast as you can drive now you should have WAY more than that

    Seriously though, I hope you continue to rack up week after week like that, you deserve it!

    This week included swapping into a newer truck (newer, still not brand new) and getting an exhaust leak fixed inn said newer truck.

    That's great bro! I'm happy you are in the groove and the miles! Sounds like a great transition for you.

    Sitting at the Volvo dealer again today. Was here yesterday waiting to get an oil leak fixed, now having turbo issues. Maybe I can use this to persuade them to put me in one of the 20 new trucks they have sitting at their dealer in St. Louis?
