    England is a great company overall but my problem is the pay sucks. The conditions in Wyoming etc are too ####ed up to be earning minimum wage. I want to be earning MINIMUM $1250 weekly, am i asking too much?? I live in NY and got an offer from WX; regional route $1300 weekly, thats what the recruiter told me via email so i have that in writing. The reviews here have me wondering and frustrated. I have 5 days to decide....

    You're kidding right? Cr England, crst, and western Express are quite possibly the 3 worse companies out there. Going from one to another is a lateral move. Don't move laterally. Move vertically.

    I can’t decide if I should hang myself or jump off a bridge. Why on gods green earth would you go from a ####ty company to another ####ty company.

    And $1300/wk at Western Express...yeah right...if all the planets align, all the politicians in D.C. stop acting like children, and all the religions of the world unite.

    Some drivers do get the flat rate, so they're not outright lying lol. But if you don't get the dispatcher who gets you loads with the right timing you will struggle to get the 5 loads... And northeast is tough if you get off kilter for parking early.
    I work for Western and I live in NY but I wouldn't take the regional. I like the flatbed OTR personally.
    Nothing better? Check Indeed? Craigslist? @Chinatown? Lol

    1300+ week after taxes + benefits? I don't even get that at my job, and it's a good company.
