    Been here for 8 months, am I the only one who feels we should be getting some kind of safety bonus or quarterly bonus or good DOT inspection bonus or 4 loads a week bonus?

    I just signed on to do this account with US Xpress. What can I expect as length of a day, loads, and pay? Also, are you getting your signing bonuses?

    I had received my sign on , It gets seperately distribute in a length of 1 year, you will drive a total of 400 miles on average with a unload of $220. Good money , u are required to do minimum 3 loads a week but some weeks you can't if a trip is a 800mile trip, your hours would be on average 8 to 14 hour days

    Cool! Thanks for your feedback. Sounds like if you don't make the money through the unloads, there will be enough miles to make sure you still get paid well. I'm looking forward to it. I finish training in the middle of next week and then I should be heading to Berwick.

    So I'm heading out to Berwick Monday morning. I'm assuming that they will re-test me and then finally get me on my way. I was hearing that they generally make you drive to the destination and park in the lot of the store the night before so that you can start your clock when unloading. Is this accurate?

    I guess having heat in the sleeper isn't an option...

    Best of luck .
