    I am thinking about getting on with US Express on their Family Dollar account in Morehead Ky. I was wondering if anyone on here worked on this account. They are saying I can make $2100 a week with my driving experience
    Just want to hear what the pros and cons of the job are before I jump into it blindfolded. Thanks

    You do know that's all 100% driver touch freight, correct? And you have experience?

    You hire on and you’ll be a full time professional lumper that happens to have a CDL.

    Tell US Express you need one of their current drivers on that account to contact you and ask that driver "how much did you make last week and the week before?" Ask him to describe his schedule. DO NOT ask "do you make good money, do you like the schedule?"
    MOST IMPORTANTLY ask the current driver to describe backing in to unload at the locations. If you are a new driver and don't have good backing skills and the locations to deliver are small and crowded you may have backing accidents.

    Ugh! It’s really tight getting into so many of their locations. You are risking getting charged with incidents on your driving record. This is why they turnover so many drivers on these accounts and offer “so called good pay”…

    I would check out dollar general if you’re interested in that kind of work. I personally would rather work directly with the company I was delivering for than go with a second party. Don’t let some here that want to believe working is beneath you.Being in control of unloading you have less time sitting around crying nobody is unloading you while you waste time sitting in a parking lot. I did food service for years you worked but got the day done went home made good money as much as a lot of guys that are staying out all week and I had time to do other things at home
