    Everything everyone is saying about this company is true! i'm posting this note to make this thread more recent so that people will know that this company has been bad for a long time and currently is not any better - if anything they are even worse if you can imagine that! Do NOT work for this company! It would be the worst decision you ever made! They treat you like $H1T, the dispatcher/driver managers know nothing about DOT rules and I think that Hendrickson gives them 2nd grade math tests and if they pass they DON'T hire them! They never communicate any useful information to the driver - they leave you sit without pay - they change pickup and delivery times but don't bother telling the drivers. They never seem to be able to figure out a drivers hours who is bumping up against their 70. They NEVER fix the trucks! My hubby is a company driver and maintenance is a joke even though THEY are responsible for it! They never get him home and say "We never got a time off request from you" - My #####!! They lie constantly! They have NO communication skills! Hubby only has a short time before he gets to retire and tell them where to shove it so he's trying to stick it out and not change companies. I just hope he lives long enough to make it to retirement driving their crappy trucks, without any breaks to even pee, and never getting to go home. These are some of the reasons why they are constantly hiring - they have about a 100% turnover every 2 months! I wish they would go bankrupt, I'm sure they are on the verge, then at least my hubby could get on unemployment and rest up a week or two before working for someone else. I HATE Hendrickson! DO NOT DRIVE FOR THIS COMPANY!

    This company has a craigslist ad in the Sacramento CA area. I forwarded a link to this forum thread to them. The following is a copy and paste of the answer I received from Erica Rodriguez.

    I will be responding to her indicating that the first post was from 2007 but the latest post (#93!!!) was from Sept. 2011.

    all i know about this company is that their trucks are always cluttering up the Fontana drop yard and they are not on hometime. Their drivers are just sitting around all the time waiting for loads

    I can only say company's like Hendrickson are wicked crooks! When they refuse to compensate a driver for sitting and waiting to get his truck loaded or unloaded they are crossing over into treating drivers like slaves!

    Why would you just sit there if they dont pay you? I had a company tell me ,,we'll pay you 'IF' we get paid. I said I work for "YOU" It does not matter if they pay you or not. I wont WASTE my time for ANYBODY... No load/unload pay I wont drive for them..
