    NO! That is Western Freightways out of Denver that New Century merged with/purchased a few years ago.

    I am an eval 2 at western express and I'm telling you all stay away from this place.Been on trainers truck for three days and have been sitting for two of them.I feel like a prisoner he smokes three packs a day and when he is not smoking he is eating,he ####### when you roll down a window, truck smells like rotten feet can't use any storage except under the bunk,Then he tells me he fell asleep driving and wrecked for another company.that is the only reason he is here.So if you want to work for a company that hires anyone Western Express is the place for you.i am just waiting for a local job to open up is why I am here, should be a couple more weeks.

    That is an unfortunate happenstance in a company which has no other incentive pay programs other than becoming a Trainer.

    That is also why I refrain from becoming a Trainer myself - with this company at least.

    It was because of this idiot that I got rousted from a good sleep at the Flash Foods in Waycross, GA on Christmas Eve.

    Woke up to a knock on door...thinking they wanted me to move truck since it wasn't in a painted parking space. Officer asked where I'd come from, where I was going, and what I was hauling - then asked for ID. While he went to run my license, I went into the bunk to put my shoes on - in case he wanted to check seals and such.

    When I got back up front and opened the curtains fully, there were a dozen police cars around my truck (Western Express) and twice as many officers.

    Spent the next hour answering questions about my route and destination...and having to constantly iterate that I'd NOT been to or through Oscilla, or even where it was in relation to my current location.

    Got to point I even told one of the officers to take her hand off her weapon - as I was unarmed, no threat, and her posture was threatening to me.

    They eventually apologized, but said I fit the general description of their BOLO (I guess truckwise and general physical appearance, though I'm Puerto Rican but commonly mistaken for being Black)

    I eventually showed then the difference between my Prostar and a Cascadia...and then they left; ###### near ruined my Christmas hometime.
