    They are owned by US Express and I am now seeing arnold trucks pulling US Express trailers and vise versa. I bet they aint long for this world. US Express will just absorb Arnold. I worked out of PA. and all I can say is they are a bunch of pupets on a string. Companie "yes" men that only care about making them selfs look good to their bosses. They will lie about any thing just to shut you up for a while. Excuse after excuse. They suck!
    All the trucks are automatics. Old US Express trucks. 65 MPH.

    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.

    Pricey, how's it going with Arnold? My husband just hired by them, he is waiting on a trainer now. He did orientation in Duncan SC and is now on his way to the Florida terminal to wait on a trainer.
