    Stay away from this company, Big M Transportation in Blue Mountain, MS!!!!!... They cheat you out of runs on your pay and say you didn't turn in the bills for it and won't bill it out and then you don't get your bonus at the end of the month.. They also make you pay for thier truck by keeping you 2 weeks behind in pay, and making you pay the insurance deductible if anything happens on the road or they make you just pay for it out of your check in payments at 25% interest. This place is a joke! They got more ways to take you money than congress.. And if you decide to leave they will give you a bad reference so you can't get another job and you'll be stuck here.. I loved trucking till I came here and now they say so much stuff that's not true when folks call for a reference that it's just not even funny... I've been here since '08 never been late, missed a pickup or drop, or had an accident and from what I'm hearing they say I'm a bad driver, and never on time! This place sux, I think I'm gonna go back to work in a factory... Look out for Big M and thier safety director Rusty, he's a liar and a cheat and does it all while looking you in the eyes!!! These folks are just bad news all the way around..

    You've been there miserable for 3-4 years?

    By you saying that about the insurance deductible and safety director, I take it you wrecked their truck and now you are on bad terms?

    They can't take any deductions other than taxes out of yor paycheck without a signed prior agreement. If you have proof, I suggest you file a complaint with the US DOL, Wage and Hour division.

    The whole DAC thing is they can't leave ficticious remarks anymore. HireRight recently lost a lawsuit and are very careful now. Many drivers are disputing past remarks and winning.

    Until you actually start job hunting, you don't know what is out there. If you've been there 3-4 years, any recruiter will see a bigger picture. It goes both ways. Neither of you all are going to bad mouth each other for 3-4 years. Something has recently happened and you ain't telling the whole story.

    I haven't wrecked a truck... It was something they started after a driver creamed a new Volvo with less than 10k miles on it in the port at mobile, al not watching for a train and got hit an a guy that didn't set his brakes and let his truck roll across a pilot parking lot and done a lot of damage to it... We never had any screwy things like this new safety director I coming up with before hand.. We had a bunch of professional drivers here at one time and he ran em all off with the nonsense and now there isn't many of us still hanging in... I hate it, this was an awesome place at one time, but not anymore.. I'm not trying to bash these guy and be malicious in my intent, I just want others to warned of this company and paint the real deal picture from the eye of an honest person that believes in a company being honest and not robbing the driver at every turn, that's all..

    So I finally left Big M... They tried to hold my last checks, I had to have the police to go with me to get them, they told my current employer I was fired and I had totaled a truck there in 2001.. My current employer asked how that happened when I didn't get my cdl till 2004.. They crewed up my dac with all kind of false reporting... These guys are scum, I was top 8 of 355 drivers when I left and thats how they did me when I left... It's sad
