As a former driver I can tell you that the Jacob r that left the bad comment is completely incorrect the truth is DF express as a company was great to me and Doug does care about his employees and I can say for sure I never had to worry bout my money I was always paid and treated with respect and my needs we're always taken care of the only reason I left there was to work for family I can also say I was never in 3 years asked to do anything illegal thanks Doug from you know who trk#50
I have a total of about 10yrs here.. a few as an owner operator and a few years as a company driver. As an owner o.o. You receive top pay (90% gross), fuel surcharge and the honor of wearing your own authorities and running how you want.. As a company driver you get decent pay, exceptional mileage and home time but you need to be INDEPENDANT on routing, motivation and common sense.. I run my own show 100% through the spring summer and fall but thinking of going back for a bit through the winter because of the consistency and tight ship they run. Expect an ass chewing or a motivational speech once and a while and make sure you have an understanding of wants and needs before going there.. great company old school feel
WOW where do I start! Been with them for 10 + years theres been a lot of entertaining years. If you want to work hard, the work is there. Stupid does not fly here, need to have your ducks in a row. Pay is above average, Miles are there even when you don't need them all, But a little company loyalty never hurt anyone. all in all It's been a good experience, I have no plans of going anywhere.

I have been here 10 years All the promises made before I started have been kept.I never missed getting home to see my kids every other weekend.There are no tricks in the pay.Consistently average 3000 miles per week.When equipment breaks, they get it fixed.I have seen lots of people return here after chasing some to good to be true job. They all have the same reason why they return, consistently good miles every week and the pay is good. It's obviously not for everyone, slackers beware, motivation is expected, along with ability to read maps, inspect equipment, not abuse equipment and all around common sense stuff. The owner works every day and he expects a little effort and give a ****
DF Express owner is the most unprofessional business man out there. Not only does he treat some of his drivers poorly but he zero respect on following D.O T. Regulations. I am former driver and as i set out for another job he got mad and called the i was driving for and got me fired. Slander is illegal and wont be tolerated cause i do have a family and he just put me in a real bad situation. I know he will see this and i know he will have some of his other driver call or text me and start making threats towards me just like one of then did last week but disrespecting me and my wife. All i can is dont use this company unless you talk to a driver in Truck 52. He is all about the good as the company will get.
Rude, just rude. That a all I have to say. They sound very condensending like they think they are above you. Get some manners, didn't your parents teach you that? Guess not.
I have worked for this carrier twice and have to say that if you want old school transportation at its best this is the place to work. they run you as hard as they can but within federal regulations. i ran appox 4000 miles a week been thru a federal audit not just 3 months of logs but 6 and had no violations on my paper work. if you do your job (logs properly) and your vehicle inspections regularly you will have no problems. if you drove for j.b.hunt, swift, werner or schneider and never did a log book i suggest getting a brain and figuring it out. there are no tracking devices, the trucks can do the speed limit in any state you are in (which north dakotea is 75) and the equipment is top notch as long as he keeps buying peterbilts and kenworths. all fuel receipts, tolls, scales, etc... have to match logs which is easy to do if you have a brain.
