A brief preface. I quit driving in March of this year and reopened a family business that I put on hold during the "pandemic." My last company was truly a great one, and I enjoyed every day of being part of it, but family needs made me look for a bigger income, and so I went back to baking. Overall the plan worked well, although I do miss driving a truck. Since my current schedule is flexible, I started looking for a part time local job, for two days every week to be more specific. And here comes my question. The only option I have in my area (New Hampshire) is a company 10 Roads Express (I believe it is the same as Eagle), a mail contractor. Does anyone have a first hand experience with this company? Online reviews are very contradicting, and based on these reviews it is hard to say how honest they are in their promises.

First hand experience no, but I see them on the highway daily. They always seem to drive very aggressively and are always speeding, I could be wrong but that tells me they are under pressure to make certain delivery times.

Also their equipment seems to be a miss match of whatever they can get cheap.

Howdy Andrey!

Long time no see (here on TT)!

I have no personal experience with 10 Roads. I have talked to a couple drivers that are hauling mail and it appears to always be on a tight schedule. Most of the drivers I come across out west here are driving in excess of 75 mph.

More than that, I can't help you but am glad to see you pop up here.

Christmas Blessings to you and your family.

Strange coincidence but I saw a Bonehead Truckers video today that featured a 10 Roads driver. Only says something about that particular driver, not the company.

I've spoken to some of their drivers. They are paid hourly. Guy I spoke to said he made $27 an hour, if I recall correctly.

The ones I've talked to mentioned they do it part time, like they drive trucks for another company and then some for 10 roads. Not sure how that works.

Like you said, they haul mail. Ones I've talked to get home pretty frequently.

I'm not a driver (yet) but that's what I've learned about them. My current job has me talking to truckers all day so I've learned a good bit about the industry....well, more than the average bear, I reckon.

Good to hear from you again. They look like they pay decent from what I've read. Dedicated run that pays hourly between 31.50 and 38.50.

Dedicated Run:

A driver or carrier who transports cargo between regular, prescribed routes. Normally it means a driver will be dedicated to working for one particular customer like Walmart or Home Depot and they will only haul freight for that customer. You'll often hear drivers say something like, "I'm on the Walmart dedicated account."

Andrey, I wondered where you went off to. Glad to hear from you again.

I too see their trucks on the road. Their equipment usually looks kind of shabby, but I’ve never talked to one of their drivers.

Just as Bobcat Bob and Laura shared, I see these trucks frequently speeding in PA and OH. Kind of reminds me of the trucks I see pulling Amazon trailers. Also as Bobcat Bob mentioned, the equipment looks to be in a wide gamut of repair or disrepair. I have seen 10 Roads trucks that look nearly new and others that look like they are one hard bounce away from being put out-of-service.


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

It may not be a bad part time gig. My cdl instructor drove for them, and said it wasn’t all that bad but it was still Eagle Express when he drove. It may be a hit or miss depending on the yard and terminal manager.


Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.


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.

Thank you, Laura! Time goes fast, that's so true. Good luck and best wishes!
