    With 18 years you might want to look at south east carriers as well.

    Good question.


    If you were talking to a person wearing a beige USX hat, black t-shirt, long jeans ( I never wear shorts unless I'm at a picnic) and work boots, then it's a yes.


    Do I remember........lol.......I have to read my underwear to remember my name.



    I guess If I had my notebook with me I could give you a better answer.



    Tell you what. When I'm back in the truck I'll check..........................if I can remember.

    Hey Wedge,

    Long time no talk buddy, so did you decide to buy your own truck? Stay safe out there!

    Hello, I am starting with USX in Jan.( well orientation) and I also see some horrid "experiences" posted to the pages. I have learned over the years to trust no one and take nothing at face value. but it's good to see some positive posts about the company, but like anything else i believe none of what i hear and half of what i see, so well see.:Trailer: :Police car:
     
    Wedge and jethro712 Thank this.

    you will find that just like all companies some will love them, others will hate them...... i was a solos/team company drive with them for 7 years. like them enough that when i got my truck i leased it on with them.... that was 4 years a go (46 months).... so almost 11 years and still happy
     
    Wedge Thanks this.

    Hey Wulfman,

    It has been a while. When ever I see a Crete truck I bend my neck to see if it's you. But only having seen a picture of you with your pooch, I doubt I'd know if it was you.

    Yeah, still going back and forth on the truck. USX has a tied in with an outfit to lease out new 2015 Cascadias. Sent me a SatCom message telling me I qualify..............I'm still laughing about that.

    Anyway, the price tag is stiff at $700 + a week. Based on the miles I ran this past year (124k), I'd be working to pay for the truck..............well...........not really, but it would be a heavy bite out of my weekly pay check. I'd have to hunker down and run pretty hard to make it "invisible", if you get my meaning. I'd need to run about 133k or better.

    So I'm still looking around. I don't have a lot of free time so it takes a bit, but I'll keep you updated.


    So how's your gig going? Staying safe, I hope.
