    My husband is actually going to orientation on Monday, the recruiter told him that after he did the training and etc that he would be able to take me with him otr... He's had his CDL since he was in his twenties and he's 31 now. My question is what's the home time? How is the pay? And what's the real truth about usx? Bc I've been seeing some reports of them leaving ppl at orientation, trucks breaking down and etc

    He's doing Dollar Tree over the road?! I don't have any insight on that but I do have some insight on the dedicated Dollar Tree account. I've been here for a short time, but from what they told me, everything has been spot on. Some of the trucks break down but that's with any company. Home time on this account is generally home on Friday or Saturday and out on Sunday or Monday and maybe even sometimes through the week depending on where you live and where your route goes. It is a good amount of labor unloading this truck, but if you pace yourself, you can do it. I'm 32. The guy that trained me on the account is 50 and he does 3 trailers a week with ease. If your husband wants money, he will work harder. Some guys on this account make 70k+ a year. Some guys make much more than that. Hope this helps out.

    I'm thinking about coming on to do the General Dollar account. Can anyone please deny or confirm what the recruiter told me!? She says I will average 1600 a week!! Seems too good to be true and I can't find any recent reviews. I've read quite a few horror stories about US XPRESS and I'm very uncertain. Set to leave in 7 days ANY input would be Very helpful!!!

    Ur at the mercy of the employees, for ur day to finish, I suggest doing intense strength training exercise 3 time week for 30min a each workout becuz the work is very tough delivering to dollar trees , but if you develop muscles in all areas of the body than , you will handle this job no prob. Do the workouts at LA Fitness (cause it's a lot of room usually for a truck) and handicap truck stop bathrooms (cuz it's space To maneuver) To pull in 1600 , your definitely will have to do 4 trucks a week. Infinite patience and strength training is what u need, good luck!

    Thank you for your response. I'm skilled at driving and I'm physically in great shape, patience I'll have to work on but thank you for your input. It's comforting to hear the recruiter didn't just pull this number out of a hat.
