I think it's the same guy as before that doesn't like a certain company. Here's three postings just from today on my local craigslist job page.

What a knucklehead!

Ya know, whenever I'm thinking or doing anything I use a filter to decide whether or not I'm on the right track. The main filter I use is the word "helpful". Is what I'm thinking or doing really helpful in a meaningful way or is it doing more harm than good? Simple filter...very effective. And if you're honest with yourself you'll find that a lot of the things you're thinking and some of the things you're doing are not really helpful.

But right now I need another cup of coffee and indeed that passes the filter. Coffee is very helpful!

That's pretty funny, I even thought about working for these guys since they have a mid west regional position that runs out of Denver....anyone have the real story about this company?

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

A bad driver or personality is going to fail at any company . That's not just in trucking . Western Express is going to have the same reputation as most mega carriers when you read the reviews of former employees.

They have a lot of trucks and drivers and the government has not shut them down , it appears they are doing something right . Not that the minute details are a concern of most folks but they are listed as satisfactory with the CSA score . Doing your own research Im sure you can find companies with as many or more infractions .

CSA:

Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)

The CSA is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) initiative to improve large truck and bus safety and ultimately reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities that are related to commercial motor vehicle

FMCSA:

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

The FMCSA was established within the Department of Transportation on January 1, 2000. Their primary mission is to prevent commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries.

What Does The FMCSA Do?

  • Commercial Drivers' Licenses
  • Data and Analysis
  • Regulatory Compliance and Enforcement
  • Research and Technology
  • Safety Assistance
  • Support and Information Sharing

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices
