I hear each and every single one of you out there with issues with US Xpress. I uprooted my family to move to Jeffersonville, OH just to be closer to US Xpress when I went to work for them. No sooner did I get on than all the issues started. No pay, or not enough pay.
Started in October 3rd was told by the GA location's safety director to my *cuss**cuss* off his truck and get the *cuss* off his property. Back in October is when he cussed me out. So I wasn't even on the truck a month. Was still in the training period. And all that had happened was I was detained by an officer in PA because there was claims that A not specifically mine but A US XPRESS truck was seen in an accident involving another motorist who never stopped. Just hit the truck and kept going. And in the contract I signed it states if ever detained for longer than an hour to let US Xpress know. So I did.
And what did I get for it?! I got terminated. And false information placed on my DAC Report. Get this I got terminated in October 2006 was not officially terminated on the DAC Report by US Xpress until December 2006. In which time if going by that record every day they have me off the truck they were suppose to compensate me $50 per day. I have never seen one red cent of that money. AND on top of that they said I was in a preventable accident. Which I never was. Now mind you this is back in 2006 that all this has gone down.
It has taken me now almost 2 years to fix my DAC Report. I had to contact USIS the company who runs DAC Report and acquire a copy. Well the copy I originally got was not showing this 'accident' stuff. But all the driving companies kept telling me it was there. And because my family and I were hurting something fierce for money we couldn't acquire another copy right away with the newest information on it. In fact because of US Xpress we had to move in with my parents just to get going again.
Anyways this year we got a new copy with all the information on it. Rebuttalled it and I was pleasantly surprised when DAC Agreed with me stating it was false information and made my DAC right again. Now I can go back to work as a Driver again. But this time I am definately weighing my choices carefully. As I have a son on the way now and I can not afford to go through this again like I did with US Xpress!! Such a Heartless company. Taking away a mans dream. Yes it was my dream since I was a boy to be a truck driver.
