    Worse company in Memphis TN JNJ EXPRESS

    Stay away!!! This company starts off good. Plenty of miles and freight. However after about a month or so you drop a load and sit all day just to deadhead 300 or 400 miles to pick up load for the next day. If you do get a load thats 700 miles they will only pay you for about 640, but thats not often because here lately they have you relay the load 400 miles down the road and then sit you there to make sure you get a 10 hour break. i ran 3000 miles and only brought home $1150 of which $150 of that was reimbursements. The dispatchers and load planners no nothing about what they are doing. The rates are low and the fuel surcharge is way off. In my 5 years as an o/o and 20 yrs in the industry this is by far the worse company to lease to.

    Well zyk285, I dont drive one of those ragady kw's. I am an owner operator with them. I have a 2008 Pete 389 550 cummins 3.36 rears. Rerun those numbers for an owner operator with a truck payment of 1850. They have taken al of there long runs i.e San Antonio, Miami, Mechanicsburg, and start giving them to the guys with their on authority to cut us out on the long runs.

    My name is marion carney and i was in the lease purchase program and when i complained about their dispatcher jasman, my miles went down a whole lot, and when i took it to the owner, i was called a liar and later suspended for no cause, thus denying me the right to earn a living, after 6 days i was allowed to drive again, but i still had to pay for the days i was forced off, although the suspenion was unjust and i was cleared of any wrong doing, and when i complained about me being forced to pay for the days i was off, i was fired, they called me to the office, and while i was in the office, the mechanic removed the key out of my truck, disable the truck and the owner told me that my services was no longer needed, and told me to get my #### out of the truck and get the hell off their property, now bare in mind, i was still leasing their trucks. At first i wasnt sure if this company was racist, but now i am convince that they are, the owner violated me lease and now i am force to file a breach of contract against this company, i am also going to contact all of their clients and inform them of this as well, i pray that no body will get into the lease program, this is a ripoff, they dont pay you, you are force to haul their loads and if you complain to much, they will fire you. The owners of this company has retaliated against me for filing a complaint with the eeoc and for complaining about my miles, and money, they brought in an attorney to try to intimate me, and now i am going to file a compaint with the board of professional standards against this attorney, they took my lease from me and treated me very poorly, nathan and john jr has conspired from the first time that i complained against their racist dispatcher to fire me, i pray that you will not be fooled. This is a bad company, so please stay away. I am useing my name because i am not lying to you. This is criminal and illegal, to all the other lease drivers, please get out while you can, i am also contacting the irs, since this company forces you to drive their frieght, then in fact, you are a company driver, i will notify fedex, ups, aaa cooper and their other customers to let them know about this company. If you are looking for a family type company, jnj is not the company for you. They have one black person in the office and they sent him out to get me off their property, there is many black drivers in this program, yet not one black dispatcher, dont be fooled. Stay away from jnj. Have a bless day and please listen to me, this company is a ripoff and nathan and jr appears to be rasict as well

    Lester is a recuiter and the only black guy that works in the office of jnj express, yet after the owner kicked me out of my truck, it was lester who enforced his order, now bear in mind, i was still under lease, yet the chief mechanic, steve took the key from my truck, disable my truck and i was told by the owner to get my ##### out of the truck and get off their property, and now its time for me to get paid, and payroll give my check to lester, who refused to give me my check,

    then hours later, ken, the safety man called me to tell me that if i want to be paid, i have to opt out of my lease, now bare in mind, it was the owner who kicked me out of my truck, so i tell ken what happen, and he tells me, that if i dont opt out of my lease and agree not to sue, that i cant get my check. Please be aware of this company, they are scammers and crooks as well, all of this is illegal, i have contacted the usdol and filed a breach of contract lawsuit against them, and if there is any other drivers or ex-drivers who have gotten ripped off by this company, file a lawsuit immeadiatedly,

    i have requested abritation since november and was always denied by either, don, ken, lester or john jr, i understand now why they got lester there for, the company screw the black drivers and send him out to enforces their actions, dont be fooled, they are all in it together, lester, nathan,ken,don and jr worked together to violate my rights, i filed a complaint to eeoc and thats when all of this begin. Lester tell me not to let these white people force me out of my contract, yet he was with them all the time. Beware!!!!! I hope fedex,ups and their other customers do find out how they cheat their driver and they do get investigated for fruad and tax invasion. Beware drivers, this company dont give a #### about you or your family. If you are looking for a real company, then keep looking. They are a rippoff

    Based on the part of town they are in I doubt they are racist. Most black people say when a white guy fires them they are racist, but what about when a black guy fires a white guy?

    Come on dude keep the rev. jackson and sharpton bs out of this. JNJ has primarily black drivers so I dont buy it one minute.

    I just applied with them, but have no intentions of signing any lease agreement. Obviously I'm white, maybe that's in my favor after reading the comments. Sorry to read about your experience with them, mrcarney..

    mrcarney: You should not be so quick on the draw as to claim racism =hate towards certain people(s) or ethnic groups as opposed to saying or claiming you that you are a victim of simple prejudice or bias = to be viewed unfavorably as an individual perhaps unfairly.

    It may have been your approach that brought on this environment of hostility. How did you confront the owner? Where you just as accusative or unknowingly hostile? Your personality and character matters all the time; Your impression matters all the time! ... .....

    The owner and staff may have felt threatened in your initially approach of claiming unfair treatment from this dispatcher........ Claiming greed or violations of the oath of contract on the part of JNJ would also be in your favor. Now this is where I test the borders of reality or fantasy: Now the owner may have a relationship with this Jasmin whereby he simply did not like how you expressed your initial opinions about his girl... Furthermore, I also feel that the CEO on down the administrative chain of command, should be given drug and some form of personality/unicru assessment testing and the results made available for the drivers.

    As for JNJ employing only one Black in the house "ok, ok" in the Administration/office does not implicate anything (+/-). Btw: I am African American, but I do not like the race card being pulled; unless it can be proven above, beyond and can cleanly cut thru any reasonable doubt!
    Your argument of racism has doubts and in this case probably would be Z'd out of court! Stick to what can be proven in your favor!
    lock & load and aim high!
