Jeff G.'s Bio

I have been an over the road driver since 2005 i started out as a flatbed driver. For about 6 years then i moved on to dry vans and reefers. I have been at usxpress for about 6 months. And just started to become a driver trainer. If anyone has some cool apps or info on how to be a better trainer i would like all the info i can get. To be better at my job.

I got fired, now what do I do?

U need to slow down in parking lots. I see people race around in them going way to fast all the time.and they end up runing in to other trucks.

Us xpress is a good place to go they well pay your school fees. And they pay 70 bucks a day when u r with your trainer. After that u get 34 cents a mile and a new truck. The trucks are auto shift.

The whole fleet is all auto shift. They got rid of the manuals a few years ago. Call the recruiters in Chattanooga tn that is there home office. I am a driver trainer and i have not found anyone that had to use a manual for there training unless its a lease truck or a owner op who has a manual otherwise its all auto they have Peterbilts and Freightliners and a few Internationals but i was told they r getting rid of the Internationals.

Drug Testing!!!

Old school a hair test can not be put on your drug test record. But yes a company can chose to not hire u if u failed it. But they can not report it to your dot drug test record. U can look up fmcsa hair drug testing and see what it says

Drug Testing!!!

Every trucking company well do a dot drug test. Its federal law. The hair test that some companys do is not a dot drug test and can not be heald agest u. The hair test is also only good for 5 months so if u have been off of drugs for 5 or more months u have nothing to worrie about.
