    Carolina Cargo - Rock Hill, SC.

    Carolina Cargo of Rock Hill, SC gets my vote. The place is an absolute dump, the rules change according to whomever you are speaking to at the moment, their hiring policy recruits ALOT of felons with all the ""I'm tough" trimmings and trappings, pay 10 cpm, and a fresh out of school CDL and a clean piss test plus three weeks with a team trainer qualifies you as a trainer. Just doesn't get any better than that....

    I worked for this outfit for a couple moths. The last straw for me was when they made me run a load to Nevada with some moron straight out of driving school who thought he knew everything there was to know about driving truck. He drove ok the first day, but day 2 was not so. He got going and I wrote the directions out for him, telling him to take I-29N out of KC to Iowa and Rte. 2 to Lincoln to catch 80. He didn't wake me when he got lost and just kept rolling west on 70. I woke up around Victoria and then rode shotgun to Hays and then Lexington, NE where we swapped. I took it from there to Evanston, WY and swapped there. I told the guy to stay on 80 and only get off if he saw a rest area or truck stop he knew he could get in to. I was awoken by the sounds of a police officer talking to him, telling him he had to turn around and I knew he had screwed up. He turned into a parking lot and hit a concrete pole, bending two rims in the process. After the rims and tires were replaced he started through the parking lot and hit a light pole, knocking it down and punching a hole in the roof of the trailer. He was then pulled over on 80 and charged with leaving the scene and improper lookout, which he had already been charged with for the pole. He wrapped that up and proceeded west. He got to the rest area between Salt Lake and Wendover and pulled in. He laid against the wheel for about 10 minutes and started off again. At about the 27mm he fell asleep at the wheel and ran off the road and across the salt flats, sinking past the axles. Afterwards he told me he couldn't sleep with someone else driving and had been taking pills for the previous 3 days to stay awake. After the tow truck drug us back on the highway and he got his ticket for careless & reckless, I drove on to Reno. I put him out at the truckstop to find a ride back to SC and I drove solo back home with a load of onions. I would recommend avoiding this company like the plague.
