What happened with Western Express?

Im not trying to make this TR.com but I got tired of spending 2-3 days not driving looking for empties, sliding pay scales, being in the shop majority of the time for crappy trailer and crappy miles. I was very patient with this place. A load i took to atlanta from Illinois i drove 665 miles i shutdown at 6pm Sunday and then they told me Sunday was my first day of hometime. There was no communication or appreciation for the drivers in the offices.

That sounds similar to the problems I experienced at Knight.

Hope you find a better fit.

I hope it works out for you. I've seen their trucks alot but know absolutely nothing about them other than the BS I heard a terminal rat spouting off at a shipper that I could see right through.

I'd love to hear how they run things.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I thought you've only been driving for two weeks with them. Something you will find, every company will have issues from time to time. Two weeks isn't enough time to know anything about them. As a recommendation, stay with the new company for a while. Dont bail everytime something goes wrong. Do that too much and nobody will hire you for fear you'll do the same with them. That being said good luck with the new company.

You're good. So day one like all is drug test and DOTs. If you are less than a year on your health card you do a full physical. Then the usual paperwork and road test at the temp office then tablet videos. The hotel breakfast is great and for lunch to day was chicfila. You provide your own dinner.

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.
