    I have been leased to them since Sept. 4...... For the first month with them I cannot complain. I made some money and I was home every weekend.

    So tell me how it is with them? How long was there orientation? I'm thinking about leasing to them as well, but don't want to put myself into a losing situation. I can't find much info on the net about them... I did see a story about Tennessee Steel Haulers is bad.... When I read it all I saw was the words Alabama Carriers, a completely different company.

    I spoke to a driver leased on to them last night. He said he'd been there 4 years. Things he told be made me feel confident that I could be making a good decision.... But I'm still am trying to get as much info as I can.

    The orientation is from 7ish till 2ish..... You meet a bunch of people and they go over logs,pay,ect..... and buy you lunch.

    So far I am really pleased with them. I actually got a call from the human resources lady Thursday just to see if everything was OK. They do not force you to take any loads and you can also broker loads if you want to.

    I have talked to a number of drivers too and they all have been leased to them for a while and that means a lot to me.

    I hope this info help ya- OH and if you do decide to lease on to them please let me know I would like to get the referral fee!!!!!
