    Most of the posts on the forum about united road are a few years old, so I figured I would start a new one.
    I am looking at starting with them, I would be doing local work out of their Brookfield yard in Mass. I don’t have any experience on a 9 car trailer, so I would have to go through their training program.
    I have already done an interview, and they seemed pretty solid.
    I was wondering what everyone’s opinion on them are.
    Any tips or hints to help me prepare for training and etc?
     
    D.Tibbitt Thanks this.

    The guy who parks next to me works for them at a different location. He seems to like it there. He's worked just about everywhere else so I'm sure he'd bash them if he didn't .

    If you want to work for the industry's leader in pushing down rates and low pay have at it. I have never met a driver who liked it there. They have convinced anyone who is happy there or trained them to think 65k is a lot of money for a car hauler to make. If they are hiring inexperienced drivers when bussiness is slow people arent staying long.

    This was a few years ago and many times I asked for more money to move units and they agreed to pay more. It never hurts to ask for more because most of the time they will pay more. that was my experience
