    nice new equipment that didnt work. went without ac for weeks and had no bunk heat in the winter. turned off idle cause it burned to much fuel. truck batteries would be dead just about every morning and had to get jumped. in shop several times just to have truck come out worse than what it went in for. yet alone they stole items from inside my sleeper. gave you impossible runs and then try to write you up cause you cant do them and are late. safety person lost his class a due to accidents and speeding and they put him in safety to tell you how to drive, lol. used open door policy to owner, a foriegner from iraq i think and was told not to bug him on his time off. sat alot between loads. when i quit, they wouldnt give me my last weeks pay....

    yep sounds familiar I worked there for 9 months and liked to starve . He is from Iraq or somewhere trucking is a hobby to him not a business . Daddy comes from overseas with suitcases of money to buy trucks. everything they do is taking advantage of drivers dont take a cash advance and not use it all by payroll if you do they penalize you for it. That place is a joke unless you find a dipatcher ######## to kiss you dont stand a chance.

    I went in the shop to have a marker light fixed the studs were broke off and the light was dangling the had to drill out the studs took 7 hrs. If you make 300 take home there your doing good

    I dont have the same experience as either of you. Dynamic trucks do have a battery feature that shuts the left bank of batterries down once they dip below 12 volts and a second bank of batterries to run APU. The only way you would wake up to dead batteries is if you let the truck run out its 5 min idle shut off and left the key on. Ive never had a dead battery issue. No a/c or heat for weeks? If you sat in that truck and overheated or froze THATS your own #### fault! Dynamic has a policy to get hotel rooms when thats the case. They aren't going to let you burn up or freeze because of an equipment issue. 7 hours to get a light repaired? So get off your butt and do it yourself. The equipment room will give you everything you need. I think YOUR one of those drivers that likes to sit. Drivers like you use it as an excuse.

    I make pretty consistant grand a week plus checks. Least ive ever took home was about 700 for a week.

    As for Fred? Wtf does it matter wether hes iraqi, iranian, afghani, Japanese, Chinese, wtf ever? He's an American business owner that runs a successful trucking company. Thats a hobby? Doubtful! Theres tens of millions of dollars in this company. I doubt thats "just a hobby". Ive never even met the man, but ive never heard a negative word from another driver about him. Quite the opposite.

    I know the safety guy your talking about. Hes not that safety manager, but he does work in the safety deparment. If you have an issue at 0600 on a sunday mornin.... you know somethin? Hes there. Ive found he works 7 #### days a week.

    Any trucking company is what it is.. what YOU make it. How YOU make it. If you worked for dynamic and failed then you need to look at yourself. Ive never had my check undercut or penalized for advances or anything like that. Ive always been treated fairly and up front. Ive seen drivers come in making demands and acting like a pompous #####. Guess what? They dont last. Have a positive attitude and you'll be treated in a positive way.

    Im done

    Dynamic Transit was the best company I ever worked for. Untill the owner Fred put is young kid Jordan in charge. Jordan loves to piss off drivers!! He has no clue how to run a company! I quit and will NEVER return as long as Jordan is in the office.
