    I was wondering about ATS and there o/o program. I know that with them you can do dry van or flatbed. I live in Ohio and I was thinking of doing flatbed because Ohio is very good with flatbed. Is ATS the right company to go with? Also what is home time like? I own my own truck but not a trailer. Thank you.

    I know it may be a little different, but not a lot different driver. I was a lease there for almost 4 years and what I learned is that they want each truck (o/o or l/o) to make a certain amount of revenue each week/month and at the same time, they don't want you to go over a certain amount of revenue. They limit your earning potential and they have to much control over what you make. It may be a little better as a o/o because you shouldn't have as many fixed expenses being deducted, but trust me, they still count your revenue throughout the week/month. I've been through it and I have a few partners that's still there with them that's trying to get out of there, but it's been hard for them to leave because they can't get ahead financially to leave.

    They tried to get me to come there several years ago but I caught them with their fancy accounting so when I asked about why there was a discrepancy on the numbers I got no answer.. So I blew them off.

    I am getting emails from them relentlessly. I posted on a job recruitment board at the beginning of last year and all of a sudden they have popped up. I am not liking what I am reading here.
    Looking for a new lease on with my 07 Century FL. It is proving to be difficult. Superb record but finding somewhere sensible is #### near impossible. I did Landstar and that was ridiculous.
    28%??
    It is a joke. Oh well something will turn up but it won't be ATS. Off to delete all the emails now.

    28% is for company drivers under the Brewton Express umbrella.
