    Just wanted to let everyone know that a useful tool for finding dirt about a company is www.ripoffreport.com. This applies not only to trucking companies, but all companies in general. Sure, there are going to be a few people making bad reports because of sour grapes, but if a company has many complaints, then it is something to consider. Most people won't make a report about a company they like, and if they don't like a particular company, you can find out why.

    Yep..We know about Ripoff Report,but some folks still wont go with those complaints.
    Its been posted before,and argued not to be correct.
    I take it all with a grain of salt,unless its a Mega carrier.

    Also Glassdoor.com

    There's a post about TTR on ripoff report. I don't put a lot of credence in what's on that site.

    The best are the ones that every word is misspelled and screaming about a company policy they violated and got fired for!

    Marsbonfire does have a very valid point in the amounts of reports wether it be on TTR or ripoffreport or where ever in todays social media. If there is say 5 reports over the past say 5 years about a 500 truck company versus 500 reports. I would take the grain of salt with the 5 because someone eventually is gonna get their panties in a twist over something. Yet when you have 500{you get my point} there is a pattern that isn't being fixed.

    The comparisons between the Ripoff Reports and TTR can go hand-in-hand. A driver with an axe to grind against a company is going to do whatever he can to make themselves look good and the company look bad.

    I don't think ripoff report will be anymore reliable than other sites, even TTR. For every negative entry for a company, there are positive threads, and some companies that have started good, but went down hill, others that went down hill but since improved, and some that were bad or good to begin with and stayed that way.
