US Xpress is offering military veterans the opportunity to quickly and easily transition into truck driving as a profession through their US Xpress Military Program.
Veterans who are eligible for GI Bill benefits can sign up for the US Xpress Apprenticeship Program and receive supplemental income from the VA while completing their training. Veterans who are not eligible for GI Bill benefits can apply to the US Xpress Advanced Rate of Pay Program, which starts veterans out at a rate comparable to an applicant with two years of trucking experience.
US Xpress is so dedicated to attracting military veterans, that they are holding several career fairs around the country on the following dates:
5/1 - Camp Lejeune, North Carolina 5/15 - Ft Lee, Virginia 5/16 - Ft Hood, Texas 5/25 - Chicago Memorial Day Parade 6/20 - Ft Gillem, Georgia 7/4 - Washington D.C. Independence Day Parade
