    If looking for a job I'd consider working for ex arrow's managers. I am a happy ex arrow employee, and i was "stranded", but got the truck home to delivery my equipment, and not the bus ride. Those I kept in touch with said they would go back to Arrow if they made it thru the bankruptcy, as would I. But there were many who were employed who just pissed and moaned all day w/o putting in apps somewhere else for unknown reasons, I suspect their huge numbers make Arrow look esp. bad. I just wish i could have kept driving my truck and keeping my old DM.

    Darn glad for my new driving job though!

    I Used to drive for Arrow in 99-2000 and quit working for them cause all they did was make me sit forever and I was making my loads on time. I also stoped driving tractor trailer due to my now ex-wife and drove rolloff for 8 yrs after that. After what they did to their drivers and after reportedly skimming money from the company I would never go to work where they opened a new Co. under another name.
    Now I am going back on the road but not with them.... ARROW SUCKED.

    Personally, i think the arrow trucking vp's and that scumbag peilsticker(the ceo and arrow founder's greedy punk kid) all ought to be rounded up, slowly & painfully executed, and all their money seized and distributed to all the drivers they stranded.

    I drove for Arrow my first year and a half out of my mickey mouse school. They gave me a shot, they were reimbursing my tuition. Would have shown them loyalty for that. At the end of 2008, I waited for 4 days to get an alternator on a freightshaker replaced. In & out of a Petro Shop each day, told that Arrow had no funds in their breakdown account. Figured that was enough of a red flag to bounce. So I did. Then in the aftermath of the disaster of closing out their books, Arrow came back to haunt me from the grave. In 2010, I got a letter from the IRS stating that I owed taxes from $5,000 dollars earned at Arrow in 2009. I had left at the end of 2008. I wrote letters to the trustees of the court in the bankruptcy and to the IRS explaining the error, and the possible displacement (if that's the right word?) of funds. No one responded. So I wrote the check for $379 to the government and put it behind me. Thanks Arrow, even when I'd thought I got out, they pulled me back in!!

    I am still an Arrow driver. I have been waiting for what seems like years to hear from my dispatcher. Even if they dispatch me on a load, I can't go get it because my batteries are dead. The tires are starting to dry rot. I might have to ask for a new dispatcher when I get back to the terminal.

    There is an occasional reminder of the failed trucking company out on the road, Sometimes an old arrow truck or trailer with it's notorious green strip will be seen parked along the old route 666.
