    Im surprised how nonchalantly it
    I left us xpress in november because of their dollar general account managers and how unprofessional their HR manager is.

    It all depends on the individual. I went out with them a few months ago. Hotel is straight up trash. Bed is more worn out than a pair of shoes with the bottom missing ROACHES, rusted fixtures be the hot water constantly runs. Bad area at night. Oh did I mention the black mold behind the dresser? Oh and recruits can't rent their room to themselves during orientation. Recruiters lied to you. Pay also depend on how many loads you run. According to the poster up western express Philadelphia break room. 800 a week for running five loads otherwise it cents per mile if you do run less than five loads. The recruiters are untrustworthy at least AJ Combest is. I'm not an Otr drive, in fact it's down right depressing to me. So when I signed up I applied for regional as they had openings in the eastern corridor. So whe I asked him southeast corridor and I said that was fine with me. Fast forward to being out on the road with my trainer in philly. I wanted to double check my driving position. Turns out Aj put me on Over the Road, after I told him how bad I hated over the road. And I checked with him more than once to make sure I was southeastern regional. Which by the way thay don't have. So I told them you can either give my what Aj promised or send me back home. They chose to send me home. Fast forward a month or two after that. I get a call offering me regional if I came back because they didn't want to lose a driver. I had already gone back to my job. And I really didn't want to get back on a greyhound bus again. My knee joints can't handle that cramp space for eight hours or more.
