Congratulations Donald!

I started my trucking career at Western Express. I built a great foundation for my future there. I know you can do the same. It is important that you stay the course for one full year. Do your best to be safe and efficient while there. You will help yourself tremendously by committing to one full year of safe driving at Western Express. At that point your felony will mean a lot less when looking for other trucking jobs. Put in the work and it will pay off for you.

Wanted to say THANKS to everyone for their input. I'm in my last week of training and have already accepted a job offer with Western Express. Just have to get that license and then go thru the Clearing House, which will be no problem. Again, thanks everyone!

Just curious if FreyMiller turned you down?

No Frey Miller did not turn me down. They offered me a job also. I chose western express because A) They offered a guaranteed weekly minimum that was pretty good. B) Western express was better able to accommodate my parole officers needs as far as trip plans. C) Frey Miller is short on trainers and there may have been a substantial delay before I would be able to work.

By no means do I have anything at all bad to say about Frey Miller. They were great to talk to. It's just that western express was a better fit for my current needs

Thanks glad I could help!! They’re a great company that pays well as long as you are willing to run... making safe on time deliveries

Wanted to give a special thanks to Jammer. I've been talking with Frey Miller and things are looking fairly promising so far. Nothing definite, but very promising! 😁
