    They don’t want to keep drivers. They’re a training outfit.

    You said it. I didn't. I was trying stick to facts. My personal opinion of them would be far more colorful.

    Well, I have first hand experience. I used to work for them. They’re not as bad as some would have you think, but they definitely have their shortcomings. They’re not a place you want to stay long term, but what training outfit is?

    Btw, the fatality (I assume it’s the one listed in the data you retrieved) was a suicidal bridge jumper. I met the driver. He said he was driving along I-84 not far outside of Portland and a guy just landed on the hood of his truck. He was out of the truck and working around the Brooks yard when I met him.

    I think the fatality is related to this recent accident Florida man dies following wreck in Lafayette County, Missouri

    I don't work for any big companies, so I am biased. You are nothing but capacity to them. Part of a big herd. Western Express I've heard mainly negative things about them. Their pay tends to be pretty low ball.

    Go by the company location. Equipment look clean and fairly new? No giant potholes in yard?

    Walk into office. Are you invisible?

    After stats, start with this.

    I'm thinking about going to Carolina logistics. Right now I'm at western Express because of my 3 preventable accidents. I'm hoping I can make more money there since it's a 1099 company and get more home time. Is this a good move?
