TruckingTruth's Overview Of USA Truck's Training Program

After speaking with recruiters and performing several hours of research, my overall impression of USA Truck is very positive. One thing that sets USA Truck apart from many other training companies is they are considered a "medium haul" carrier. Basically, that means most of their drivers by default run mostly regional. You will still be expected to run anywhere in the country as USA Truck does operate in all 48 states and Canada, but the majority of the time you'll remain east of the Mississippi River. Most of their drivers remain within 500 miles of their home and within 6 to 12 months, the majority of drivers are placed on some sort of dedicated or regional account.

This has the advantage of drivers going by the house more often and running in more familiar areas. The disadvantage is drivers will not life the full "OTR lifestyle" of traveling and seeing large portions of the country. It also means you must live within their main operating areas to become eligible for hire (generally the eastern half of the country).

The CDL schooling, handled through a third party called Driver Solutions, appears to be well run with a decent tuition structure. However, the penalty for leaving within the first 12 months is much higher than many other company sponsored options. We always stress the importance of staying with your first company for a minimum of one year, but that's especially important in this case.

Of course you should always do your own research and weigh as many possibilities as you can, but in general if I was personally looking to begin my truck driving career, I would make USA Truck a serious consideration.
