XPO Logistics (Formerly ConWay Truckload)

Are there any drivers for ConWay/XPO Truckload on here? I have been talking with a recruiter since before the XPO purchase and just wanted to get any feed back from anyone actually in the saddle. I am half way through CDL school , so I would highly welcome input on any other good starter companies out there. Must have pet policy, prefer APU but depends on idle policy. THANKS!

Female and pet friendly trucking companies?

Thanks! I am actually doing the same. Dropping the apartment after company training and settled into my own truck. I have done lots of research on so many companies but finding that as quickly as I mark one off the list, they change a policy that draws me back to checking them out. It is crazy how much this industry has changed since the time my Brother-in-law drove!

ladies...save up money because I did the same as you are. Last October 2014 I gave up my appt And truck and Prime gave me a bad trainer. I was out on the road with for 5 weeks. Nice guy but not the greatest trainer..I was on the last maneuver and the time ran out. X2 I went thru the backing dot test and failed. My trainer would not work with me on the road. Today as I speak I took off 2 months and trying to finish a school and it sucks..the lack of training they give u.ok so here I am 1 yr later no place to live trying to get my cdl.. GET U R PERMIT FIRST.

How is it going now? I am enrolled in CDL school at a tech college. I am going to continue to work during my schooling. I will drop my job when I get my CDL and ready to a company. I have been in constant contact with a recruiter at Con-Way Truckload, which is now officially XPO Logistics. I hope I will get on board with someone right away. If not, I guess I will be in the same boat you were.

Investigating trucking companies, any words of wisdom?

Hi Ladies. I am also about to embark on the truck driving career. I am officially enrolled in CDL school and starting Dec. 5th. I have been a research fanatic on this huge life change! I too have a dog. My importance is to have her with me immediately after I upgrade into my own vehicle. Some companies have time holds. The company I will hopefully end up with is XPO Logistics (formerly Con-Way Truckload). They just merged a few month back and the truckload division is going to continue to be run by Con-Way Truckload peeps in the same operation concept. They are very female friendly, pet friendly and have solo driver training...no team run training. Also gender training oriented. So check them out before you decide. Though I am a little freaked out about it, I decided to time it so I can be with an experienced driver trainer during the later winter months (Feb-Mar). I don't think there is a right or wrong time to start but for me, that was my biggest concern.

I am a 49 yr old, looking to make a huge career change and trying to do as much research as possible before making this jump. I am looking for any advice on companies that are good for women drivers and have good pet programs. It is just me and my little dog (Min Pin), Kelley. I understand I will be away in company training after getting my CDL training here in Nashville. I have arrangement for her during that time but I am seeking the shortest quality road time in training. Again, it's just me and her. We are a road warrior team! :-)

I am drawn to a few companies and wondered if anyone had any input on them: Con-Way Truckload, Prime, Trans Am, USA and US Express. There is a pull for me to Con-Way but I cannot find enough info on them.
