Congratulations, Western Express may not pay as much as some but they take care of their equipment, you will have newer trucks, plenty of miles and not do much sitting around. Are you dry van or flatbed? Any questions feel free to ask.

No the trucks are pretty bare bones. They tried the bells and whistles and people started stealing. They do not allow fridges but they do allow max 400 watt inverter any Coleman electric cooler

Western Express Second Chance Advice

You can not take YouTube reviewsand other forums seriously. This forum the most accurate you will come to. Someone told me It was WE fault that he got fired due to him having alcohol and a Hooker in the room at the hotel that was owned by WE.

When you sign your employment agreement that is your contract (HINCE THE NAME) I have been solo with WE for six months. Before that I hadn't driven in 5 years. Please go look at my diary page. Is western the highest paying closest to perfection company out there no, are they known for having crappy drivers and high turn over yes. In my opinion that is because people want to get Hurry up and get on the road and not drive , they wanna make bookoos of money right off the bat, or they don't want to do a drug test. Do you know what WE does do. They give new drivers a chance to get experience, they give drivers who love this lifestyle that made a mistake a chance to redeem them selves and serve this country like no else can. If you wanna run hard tell your dm and he will run you hard if he doesn't get a new one.

If you choose WE which I suggest you do, here are a few suggestions

1.bring money for food during orientation

2. Don't listen to the whiners with the imaginary big balls.

3. Stay positive.

Moderators is there anyway i can talk to him privately on here.

ABS Light, Did I Make the Right Choice?

If its broken down report it get it fixed. That's the point of pretrip. If its broke down or needs repairs you are saving your life a possible dot ticket and the driver that has that trailer next. Being late is not your fault if the trailer needs work on it. It is frustrating but you have be like water off a ducks back and let it roll right off.

Random question about an interstate in Arkansas

So i lived in central arkansas my most of life. I have always wondered why hardly any truck drivers take i430 to 40 west when it a straight shot to 40 with out having to go i30 through the bs of the capital area. Any know why this is?

Don't ever believe the shop on an eta the truck will be done when they call you. Whether you are at a TA, LOVES, or a terminal.

What is your trucking pet peeve?

1. Not cleaning up after self and finding a trash can or dumpster to put your trash and **** bottles in.

2. And alot of people may disagree with me but parking and shutting down by the cat scale when that area is the only space to drive through without having to drive through the scale.

What would you do? Almost sideswiped.

So I asked this question on another trucker forum and I was super surprised on how many fellow truckers told me to look the other way and how i am one of the ones killing the brotherhood . Am I wrong for being surprised by those answers. I didn't take it personally because I dont know them they don't know me.
