    Good God, how much is trailer rental or the truck payment? I can understand fuel and ins, but ins would be like maybe $100/week and fuel I'll say $1200. That's like $1700/week for truck payment & trailer payment.

    Management at this company is crap and the real reason this company is terrible, they tell you one thing and do the total opposite all they care about is trying to get into your pockets and how you run a trucking company where you can't reach anybody after 5pm, that's the dumbest sh** ever...15 cents per mile they charge you on maintenance that you have no control of is a joke, you have to get approvels on money you put in and you don't get to keep the money... Overhead at this company is to high, that's how they keep you on the road... They freight pays ok, I will say that but there expenses are to high for these crappy ##*crst expedite trucks they try to lease you, you have to bring own your own truck but when you do bring it own they will always find something wrong with your tractor every time for you to spend money.. They get mad when you try to get out the truck and then you can see the managements true colors.... Everyone from my orientation has quit and all said the same thing so that should tell you something.... I'm just putting this out here so people can know before you even think to come to this sorry ##* company and they have a real bad CSA score so you always have to come into the scale with the possibility of always getting a dot inspection done and risking points on your record.... I'm on my way home now to quit and go to the lot and buy my own truck

    Looks like the yet to be named Freightshaker and I are going back home to Malone. It will be nice to get back into the game.
