    Company owner Erik Aguiluz read my Craigslist Ad and hired me to drive his truck and self dispatch.
    The first couple of weeks were just fine although I was finding it difficult to find good paying freight.
    We agreed that I would get to San Antonio,Texas, and haul chicken to Costco in Sumner Wa.
    I made my delivery then found a load going to Moses Lake Wa. That way I would be positioned to load apples back to San Antonio. His broker never called me and eventually I was informed the broker was not returning his calls either. I found some eggs going to Everett Wa. I made my delivery and then parked it for the weekend because the dash was not working and I was directed to put it in the Freightliner shop on Monday. I did as directed and I was told it would be a three week wait. By now Erik was not answering his phone and so I contacted his brother. He told me to bring it to the yard and they would buy me a plane ticket home. They were having a run of bad luck as a their father ran into the back of car in a sandstorm in New Mexico, causing a 5 car pile up. Then the KW they just bought took a dump over the DEF system.
    That coupled with problems Erik had in San Antonio getting unloaded and their dedicated freight taking a dump. I guess they were going to cut their losses. But at my expense. I ended up renting a large car and loaded all of my stuff and my dog into the car and paid my gas home. They assured me I would get my pay and return expenses. Here it is two weeks later and nobody is answering their phone. Now I have to chase my pay through the labor board. I hope this warning finds the eyes of any driver thinking about working for this company.

    Based on the high DOT number it sounds like they weren’t in business for very long.

    I always wonder how a driver ends up at a job like this. The company is bad but the driver is responsible as well.

    Meh. We've advertised on CL before, but mostly for local positions. Rarely does a regional driver come from there.
     
    Lonesome Thanks this.

    First, thanks for a well presented complaint. I guess you will have to chalk it up to "learn from the burn".
    I wonder how many times they have used their father for an excuse. Seems like they are just scammers, or they have no idea how to run a trucking company. Seeing as they won't answer your calls, I'm going with scammers. They do it over and over knowing drivers won't haul them into court.
    I hope you can recover financially and move to a better company.
     
    Constant Learner, Lonesome and mjd4277 Thank this.
