    Something doesn't sound right about your post. They have their issues, but what you are saying happened, just does not happen. I believe there is more to the story.

    I think it's finally happening. Arnold has been going downhill for years, but now that US Express has taken over, it is going down quickly. Does anybody else have a problem with the new "changes"?

    Nice list ... now if you can get a recruiter to answer half of those honestly or even can answer at all ... that alone would be a company worth driving for .. :biggrin_25514:

    :help::help:Well I am scheduled to start orientation on Monday 8/9. I hear bad things about Arnold, but I can say the same about most OTR companies mentioned here. I need the work. I worked the past year for a local company, traveled 7-8 states, but I was home every day. They were an AG. company so I didn't have to keep logs, and I was not subject to the 14/70 hr rules. Most companies will not consider this as exp. since I didn't keep logs, or sleep in a truk. Sooooo beggers can't be choosers I guess. I hope things go well. I was told the following:
    -Trucks are autos, and 3 years old or less
    -I am assigned "super regional", meaning NE.SE. and west to Texas
    -Out 10-14 days then home 48 hrs...they try to get you home every other weekend
    -Orientation is three days, they pay for hotel, breakfast and lunch, dinner is my cost. No pay for orientation
    -After three days and drug screen and physical, I am assigned a truck, and routed home for a day or two, but bring enough clothes to last 10 days just in case. She said they almost always get drivers home before the first run.
    -I live in Pa. but was told my home terminal will be in Florida, and Camp Hill is secondary....which sounds like a good thing.

    All I can say is I will try my best, and hopefully they will do their part. I will keep you posted with my progress as honestly as I can. I won't sweat the small suff, as I know that there is no perfect driving job, and miles are crappy all around.:help:

    All I can say is good luck. You will probably do pretty good during the "honeymoon" phase, but after that, just do the best you can. There was alot of hope that when USX took over, things just might change for the better, and in some small instances, it did. But for the most part it didn't. You'll learn. No matter what, it's still a job and those are kind of hard to come by now a days.
