I got my CDL 7 months ago and had trouble finding a company to take me having no experience. Western Express gave me a chance and despite what you may read on the web or hear on YouTube my experience up to this point has been fantastic. Everyone within the company I've come in contact with in person or on the phone has been the utmost professional. I went to orientation in Nashville did load securement training for flatbed was on the road with a trainer after that and I just received a message this morning that I'm being upgraded to my own truck tomorrow. Really excited to be with Western Express

Love hearing positive stories about companies that people generally give a bad rap to.

You're on your way to a solid, lucrative career, just remember it's a marathon, not a sprint to your financial goals.
