Orientation

Welcoming Environment

Are you ready to join our US Xpress family? Orientation is your first step. It's a great chance for us to get to know each other, face-to-face, before you hit the road. Join us and you'll see, first-hand, just how welcoming and friendly a successful family-owned company can be.

We hold orientation sessions weekly in multiple locations across the country. The process consists of a road-driving test, DOT physical, physical standards test and a drug screening. And, yes, that's all on our dime. You will also become familiar with our safety protocol and operation procedures, and complete some paperwork.

Orientation lasts three full days, and you'll be paid between $58 and $66 a day depending on your location for those days if you're hired, with $50 automatically advanced on your fuel card. We'll provide lodging and one meal each day and may also provide transportation to the orientation site. Please let us know if you need help getting to class. We'll see you soon!
