    Wanna add one more thing if you are a disgruntled driver that had a poor experience it is most likely because you broke the company policy and ****ed them off. Never had any issues with them and been running my tail off at Express 1 5500 miles this week and sitting in CHATTANOOGA, TN with room for one more load before Saturday

    It sounds good.
    4 weeks out =4 days at home.

    Whats the 5th or 6th day cost you ? Re to staying on your dime.

      If I have to stay any extra days I talk to their office in advance first. $125 for 5th and 6th day per day . Bigger companies like Scnneider, Swift or any of the big dogs will let you get away once not getting back to the truck on time then they will fire you At least Heavy Weight give you this option. Like I said only had to do it once. Look for their drivers in hot Spots Like Laredo by the Express 1 warehouse. last we met with a few during memorial weekend and had an outdoor BBQ

      If you're sitting in Chattanooga, why is the IP address of the computer you are using (a) the same IP as rawans33, and (b) not anywhere near TN?

      A while back it seemed like some liquored up E-1 office people were posing as drivers.

      Just my opinion.
      People that sound like office people may get a little attention until we get to know you. :)

      I've been with heavy weight enterprises for 14 months now..and I have nothing but good things to say about them..I have no trouble getting paid and the money is good and everyone in the office including the owner are great folks and they are all about team and they treat their drivers very well..I would recommend them to anyone

      EXACTLY...
      All smoke and mirrors with HWE.
      The rebuttals are coming drictly from the owner and office people, Not drivers!

      EDITED (by admin) TO ADD: There are 2 sides to EVERY story.

      I recieved a call from HWE for a driving posistion through Panther. Haven't got a chance to call back yet due to my busy schedule working at a hospital. Found this thread on my lunch break a few minutes ago. Its for a solo straight truck driver. Anyone still currently working there? Hows the mileage and pay?
