We live in Hollis, Maine near the bottling plant that your trucks visit daily. Yesterday my wife & I almost got into a head on crash on rt, 117 when a Western Express truck crossed the centerline while attempting to make a right turn onto rt. 35 where there is a sign directing the trucks to go straight. The town of Hollis had the DOT install theses signs because of the dangerous intersection. The driver of this truck obviously could not read. He completely ignored the fact that he was on the wrong side of the rd. This happened on 1/30/2021 at about 1:45 pm. We see a lot of Western Express trucks lost on back roads & making illegal uturns. Pleases pay attention to this matter before more people are killed around here.
I went to western express after i got my cdl from different school. I went there looking for job but i had to quit because of your scum and now you asking me to pay back money i didn't get from you. I didn't receive my cdl from you. Please stop the scum for the sake of justice. I wanna know if there is a concerned body to look into this company's scum
Our concern is that this truck is parked every weekend in a residential area. With this you are violating the laws that govern the Municipality of Hartford. I quote: Sec. 22-26 Fine and penalties for unlawful parking. This company cannot use residential area to park this type of vehicle for more than 3 hours. Not enough for this also bad parking encroaching on the area for bike riders. Endangering people who ride bikes.
I was a driver for Western Express, during my employment I was treated like "scum", by my 1st driver mgr, however by the time you deliver a load by a Friday and the consignee request a LUMPER amount to be paid like $200 or so, Western Express will deduct a lumper pay from your earnings to reduce your net pay which is very unethical, like they treat your earnings as theirs. My worst concern I realized not having enough money to pay my bills. My 2nd driver mgr FAILED to pay me for truck recovery which is now a DELINQUENT MATTER. They expected me (including MR BLAKE), to clean up another former driver's GROSS mess in the truck whereas I drove it about 3 days and got sick. I have filed an OSHA complaint regarding a Health Hazard I was subjected to and I plan to never return to this company for GOOD CAUSE. Unfortunately, they could not give me loads to make $1, 200 a week because I felt like I was misled by the driver recruiter which is almost deceptive employment practices. "The Truth Is That Western Express Just Can't Pay Me Enough F*cking Money". The "F" word is my favorite in this matter.
The car that my wife was driving was backed into by a flat bed trailer driven by a Western Express driver...
Either your drivers can't read English or they consciously ignore signs banning their size truck from 2 lane residential roads which surround The Historic Village of Thornton, PA 19373. Trucks headed for the Concordville, PA industrial park have ample US routes-1 and 202 to access the bottling companies in this park. We report these violations to the state police but it your employees or sub contractors, so management is responsible for the training. It is our right to residential quiet that is being sacrificed. Use the proper roadways and give us a break. Peter Dietz, Mayor
I'm here at the Loves in Tolleson Arizona...I'm parked next to one of your drivers...one of your drivers is treating another driver with disrespect...the driver had the older man wait outside in the cold and locked out of the truck because he went to go buy food for man than hour...what right is that for a younger man to treat an older man like that to wait outside of the truck aren't they co drivers...another driver does not treat another driver like that...especially a older senior citizen man...please do something about it...that's it just wrong!!!drivers need to have respect for one another!!!

Your employee Barbara Adams is a threat to your company and the roads that she rides on. She smokes crack cocaine and drinks very heavily when she comes home on her breaks. I thought that your company was a drug free company. She passes her drug tests by taking other people urine back with her because she knows that she will not pass if given a drug test. I think yall should be informed and investigate this thoroughly
Western Express driver came over on my husband, 1 year old daughter and I on October 20, 2019. We were turning into walmart on Little Debbie Parkway in Ooltewah TN. There are 2 left hand turning lanes and the drive of truck 4774 was in the right hand lane and my family and I was in the left hand lane. (Both lanes turning left into Walmart. Once in the walmart center the driver, with no signal, came into my lane. His rear tires and rear end almost hitting me. My husband who was driving had to slam on brakes then we were almost rear ended. My husband drove to the truck to get the picture that is attached to report the driver. When he realized that we were taking a picture of his truck number he opened his door and started to cus my husband. My husband tried to explain why he took the picture and the driver pulled out a knife on us. The knife is a white handled in a black holter. Driver is a tall white Male 25 to 35 years of age. We called the police when they arrived either the driver would not come out of the sleeper or he had left.

On Saturday June 22nd, 2019 at 12:20 PM my car was sideswiped by a Western Express 18-wheeler truck while traveling Southbound on Rte. 287 in Pompton Plains, NJ. I was driving a red 2019 ford fusion hybrid from avis car rental with connecticut plates.
My family and I could have been killed or seriously injured. Fortunately I took my
my foot off the gas pedal as the truck passed me on the right and cut into my lane otherwise the result might have been catastrophic.
I was in the middle lane traveling about 65 mph when the impact occurred to the right front bumper and right front wheel of the car. I estimate the Western Express driver to be going at 70+ mph when the impact occurred which according to my GPS happened close to geolocation (40.97, -74.31). I estimate the damage to my vehicle to be somewhere between $1, 000 and $2, 000. The right front wheel and front bumper were damaged in the collision (see attached photos).
After the collision the driver did not stop but kept going. I caught up to the truck and took photos of the truck for evidence. the truck driver then slowed down and appeared to get off the next exit.
It was difficult to see in the photo (see attached) but the truck license plate looked something like U811113 or D811113 (see photo). However on the side of the truck there was more information (see photo):
electronic driver log: 5372
US DOT 511412
I have filed an accident report with the new jersey state police case# 19-107w.

A western express drive came into the store, pacing back and forth, cursing infront of children he did not have a head set on either. Tried to walk out without paying, his turn signals are out or he didnt use them. He pulled out infron of on coming traffic as well.
The driver appeared to be under the influence of something, he wasnt making any sense. The only thing he kept saying is "I'm a 5 star truck driver, I avoid accidents, I drive correct"
I did get a truck # 4639.
I must say your company drivers are the worst one I ever see. They are unprofessional, aggressive and disrespectful and disgusting.. I hv meet one today at gas station he was black guy. Trailer # u811930 was using abused language with try to get physical.
I can't believe your company hv such drivers.
But after reading this complaints I am not shocked about it any more.
I will recommend everyone please do not give work to this company.
Drivers are same like there company
On march 2, 2019 my boyfriend and I got hit by a western express semi. We were in the second to left lane and the semi hit us on the left side damaging the whole left side of my vehicle. The bumper is hanging off the car and the left side is dented in and scraped along with the tire off the rim. George oliver (western express employee) admitted that the wreck was his fault but I have not heard from the insurance company yet and I have missed work and school and I have to go to the emergency room. Please contact me as soon as possible to get this resolved.
I called Western at [protected] on 2/25/19 to do an employment verification. Lakiesha Griffin refused to do a phone verification but gave me the DOT Rule 40. cfr part 40 for why I need I need an employee consistent. I read the code with her on the phone and explained I didn't want the drug testing info, all I want to know is if they were employed there, when? Why did they leave? She told me I was lazy and why would I not want to know the drug testing info? Her unethical behavior was too much. If a company wants simply information from the past employer we as other companies should not be subjected to this kind of scrawny. The code did not employ to want I was looking for. She refused to do her job of verify, she told me she had a job to do, I then replied your in verification i'm your job, you need to help me, when I asked her to explain the law she through at me, she was not able to but kept attacking, was very rude. Never did get my verification., I have called western in the past for verification and I had no issues getting them by phone.

Today on Highway 30 in Reliance, TN, a trucker was not driving in his lane of traffic. Highway 30 is just like highway 129. A semi truck should not travel this road. I had to back up to keep from this driver hitting me. I want to complain so these truckers will not come this way anymore! This road is not a good short cut!
