    US Xpress Student Driver Experience

    Just finished my 2 1/2 day orientation in Tunnel Hill today. On my way to Kings Mountain, NC to meet my trainer and knock out these 150hrs. So far this has been a GREAT experience and I'm very impressed with the company and I'm not one who's easily impressed. I do wish I could've been paired with a trainer out of the UsX Terminal in Atlanta which is where I live but no biggie. I'm assuming there were no available trainers out of the Atl Terminal. I'm looking forward to hitting the road and I plan on taking my time to learn everything I need to know about trucking. I know it will take a while before I become a confident & comfortable driver but I am patient and I know each day will be easier than the previous one. Well just wanted to share this NEWBIE experience. God Bless!
