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.

I've a question! I'm in talks to start CDL school in the next few weeks, and US Xpress is showing promise. I just need to know, can anyone confirm whether or not they pay anything for the 3-4 weeks that you're actually in class? If not, any companies that do?
