    Well I have been leased to URS for 7 years. Depends on what you are looking for and where you live. They keep me busy and are pretty easy to work with. Yes I have gripes here and there but what company won't you have that with? I see that you are looking to start driving a truck if I am correct? I'm not sure but don't ask either if they are hiring "new" truck drivers or not.

    Unless this happened directly to you why post the link? Like I stated earlier in this thread,,I am just shy of 8 years being leased here and NEVER had anything like that happen to me.

    I checked that report. There is only one person making a bad report. I don't know anything about this company but IMHO one report does not mean anything. It could be a jerk who is not happy with anything. If there were dozens of reports saying the same thing, then I would be concerned.
