    :biggrin_25510:well i hate to inform you about this company but they cheat you every way they can. the boss, doug likes to intimidate you, try to get you run illegal, doesn't pay fines, doesn't give you home time, trailers always needing repairs and doesn't want them fixed until it suits him. oh but don't let it run into your running time. he threatened me on stealing his truck because i couldn't just pull off anywhere to call him, because i was running out of hours because of repairs and miss management on their part. he is nothing but a royal hothead and shouldn't be allowed to own any company.
    and they put stuff on your dac jsut to keep you from getting any other jobs as well. Marci acts so sweet but even when she knows doug is in the wrong, her excuse is if i could handle running the company she wopuld take her trucks else where but if you are bf abd gf you know that will never happen. both are hot heads and need anger management classes.
    i was even told by several of the customers to look for a job elsewhere because of the quality of work they recieve from specialized express.
    they took my pay and left me with nothing to feed my children when i got stuck i had to pay the tow bill after a reciever's guard sent me to sit because i was four hrs early oh but lets not talk about that,let's just say i learned to call first before arriving early to any customer,hehehe. cost me the custody of one of my children because of hometime when i needed to be at a court date. so be weary of specialized express, llc located in columbus, ohio owners are doug of the company and marci hinton of the trucks they are both nothing but crooks.:biggrin_25511:

    Doug Able is a ###. My wife and I run for specialized for four months as a team, In that time, We where verbally abused on a number of occasions. for complaining about over weight loads. truck braking down and being put on 100 mile loads when solo drivers ran out of hours and refused to drive. we would hear later that those drivers would quit or be terminated!

    i should have put it in here in november of 07 but i thought everyone would think i was just another disgruntled employee. but hey you have to put part of the blame on marci as well. they are her trucks too. if she really cared about the safety of her drivers then she wouldn't let herdrivers be put in the postion that doug puts them in every day. why the dot's haven't stopped them i have no idea. does anyone think we can get him shut down. i know i would like to try.:biggrin_25525::biggrin_2551:
    i haven't been able to find a job for over 19 months because of what they put on there. and i really need to support myself. all my options are slim. soem say i need a refresher course that i can't afford, but i still try to get jobs all the time, not just sitting on my butt. i have also resorted to selling my crafts on the streets to get money to pay for the things to make it through each day.
    hope you all don't let it get to you too much, doug able ran one company to the ground before selling (Artic Express), he'll take this one with him too.

    Yeah I wish you had put something about them back in nov. 07, I wouldn't of gone with them either. I haven't tried to find a driving job since them, because I figured my DAC looked like a war zone. You can put a statement on there, about what they put on yours, but do it in a professional way; don't let your emotions get caught up.

    In todays economy you may have to sell more than your "crafts" on the street.

    there is a way to find out what is on your dac especially if you are unemployed and seeking work but think that there is something that was wrongfully put on your dac.
    www.usis.com/comsumer
    if that doesn't help please contact my email and i will look into my records on how i got mine.
    there are companies out there i know there is i just have to find it. hopefully all things get better for you:biggrin_25526::biggrin_25518::biggrin_255:

    should have figured it would be a guy to get perverted. my crafting consists of plastic canvas and polymer clay figurines and any other crafting not laying on my back pleasing some dumb blockhead, who thinks the only reason women are out there is to get a piece. or to please those knockheads who can carry any type of disease there is out there. I have a steady guy, and am a one man woman.
     
    Diesel Cowboy and anj8488 Thank this.
