Money to be made if u don’t have a family. They have u work during ur 10 hour break by having u stay at truck stops or on site. Their trucks don’t recognize ur driving for up to 3 miles so they have u leave a truck stop that under 3 miles away during ur 10 to make appointments.

Driver friendly, Family owned, good pay and open door policy. WEL is always willing to talk about issues that may arise.
Everyone has a different view of a con, being in transportation you are always up against weather, traffic and tight schedules. This isn't always the fault of the company, its just the challenge that we face as drivers. WEL does a good job of trying to fix any issues that may arise.

How's it going drivers? I can tell you anything you'd ever want to know about WEL. I just left them on July 1st and it's been an experience I'll say that. I started orientation mid March and stayed til July and in that time it was a nightmare. First off, they claim to be a family oriented company with steady miles. Lol, that's far from the truth I promise you. I decided to go lease operator thinking what the hell it's a walkaway lease what do I have to lose. I did loads of Belgioiso Cheese from the terminal in De Pere,WI. going to Cranston, RI. Delivered and got stuck at the TA with NO available loads for 4 days. Co-workers stuck in Ohio and Texas for 4-5 days no loads. They're very inconsistent with freight and mess up your check regularly. Company drivers really only get about 600 miles a week and that's the truth. Lease...a 2014 Pete with 215,000 miles on it runs you $700.00 a week just for the truck. With insurance, people net, etc. You are at $1,100.00 a week in the hole and we still haven't included fuel, maintenance acct. You have to PAY YOUR OWN TOLLS, no reimbursement and it will average $650.00 per week in tolls out of your pocket. All in all, end of week comes and your check is $335.61 after running all over the east coast. Learn from my mishaps and stay away. Hope this helps anyone considering WEL Companies.

WEL Companies came to my school today and they seem like a decent company. Anyone drive for them and have any good things to say?

Hey everyone I guess it really is official! Recruiter just called me with my confirmation # for my bus ticket this Sunday! I'm very excited and nervous. First OTR company I've been with in about 6 years. Time to turn my world upside down. Anyone else on here going to this orientation? Figured I'd start a new thread and let everyone know how it goes with me and Wel. I live near Chicago I'll be taking a Grey Hound there. Yukie I hate buses I guess I don't have much choice though. I was thinking of having my wife drive me, but I don't want her driving 4 hours back by herself. What I think I know so far. I'll be a regional driver out of the Joliet yard / terminal getting .40 cpm should be home most weekends 2000+ miles a week (so they say). I'm going to bring my dog (Monty) with me, after my first week driving. They seem to have good benies. I'll find out more next week. I hope everyone is having a safe week! I'll keep in touch
