    evening all,
    I was crushing Craigslist looking for work, I came across an ad for usx dedicated the benefits listed in the ad were as follows:
    • Fleet Manager to Driver Ratio 20:1
    • Average $1,150/wk!
    • $7,500 Sign On Bonus!
    • Home Weekly
    • Newer Trucks average age 2 years old
    • 401K Match
    • Great Benefits, including Medical, Dental & Vision
    • Paid Orientation
    • Pet Policy
    • And More! What I'm curious about is how much of this is bs and how much is true. I haven't spoke with them yet, I want to hear from usx drivers first. Also I know usx does dollar accounts which I will never do those again that's awful work

    I don't really care about the cameras, as long as they don't bother me about what I do when I'm not driving

    I saw a similar ad where I live in FL, but it also said "must relocate to IN", maybe that is why there is such a big sign on bonus.

    There was also an option to relocate but I checked out the website and this was out of Jax

    They can be setup to record 24/7. Even if you can cover up the camera while you're off duty, the little microphone is always listening. They can be remotely activated. They can go off at times when there's no legitimate reason for them to be set off (ie a bump). Etc, etc...

    If you do anything they don't agree with while off duty, what makes you think for a second you won't hear about it?

    • Fleet Manager to Driver Ratio 20:1 I highly doubt that. USX is too big
    • Average $1,150/wk! Absolutely not.
    • $7,500 Sign On Bonus! Paid out over a year. If you have HAZMAT
    • Home Weekly on some accounts. Note that it's not necessary home on the weekends. It may be Tuesday and Wednesday
    • Newer Trucks average age 2 years old seems about right
    • 401K Match after one year if I recall
    • Great Benefits, including Medical, Dental & Vision medical and dental are alright. Vision is nothing to write home about. I didn't take it.
    • Paid Orientation $70 and a sandwich every day.
    • Pet Policy I don't have a pet so I didn't pay much attention. I believe they require a deposit but don't quote me on that.
    • And More!
    I'd say "mostly half truths." USX really isn't a bad starter company but don't get your hopes up when they promise the moon and you only get a pet rock.
