    It's unfortunate that they were so horrible back in 2007 - 2009. I froze for them over 2 entire winters, because I heard how many Drivers were getting fired for idling, I didn't want to be another. I didn't idle at all, I had so many sweatshirts, sweatpants, blankets, sleeping bags ! I would see my breath almost every morning when I woke up, it wasn't fun ! They didn't appreciate my extreme sacrifice AT ALL !! That was inhumane treatment that I went through, it's a wonder that I didn't get sick or catch pneumonia ! The Dispatchers and people in Iowa were rude, nasty, selfish people when they were sitting in warm offices in the winter or cool offices in the summer, yet they would send out tons of messages and phone calls about idling and everything else, it felt like a nanny state or a police state with dictators in charge !!

    They lost and fired A LOT of good and great Drivers and employees from 2007 to 2009 ( and probably longer than that ). I hope that they had open trucks and freight that didn't get delivered, as well as a Driver shortage , because they treated Drivers with disdain and disrespect ! Word gets around and that was a horrible 2 year experience for me as well as all the other hundreds of Drivers they forced to quit ( or were fired ) because the working conditions were so bad ! I'll never forget their mindset and the treatment that I received there ! I kept in contact with a couple Drivers who got fired, and Barr-Nunn and Tracy in HR were so low and despicable, that they fought them and tried to prevent the Drivers from collecting Unemployment Compensation after Barr-Nunn discarded them like trash ! Another example of their CHEAPNESS and their TIGHTWAD ways, as well as their SELFISHNESS !!

    When I started it was great then it went down hill... So we had a phone conversation and let's put it this way I prepared to get fired I had a job lined up before I made the call , I put them in there place yes I know your thinking just another loud mouth trucker but no not the case I hit my issue head on I'm a forward kinda guy... Well the f bomb was dropped several times holding they would fire me but by the time I was done I hung up and things got a hell of a lot better... But its a day by day thing if I don't get my miles I told them come get your truck
