    I don't even know where to begin. This shady Lithuanian company has dispatchers that will tell you to get to your pick up five to six hours earlier than your regular appointment time.after that you will get a phone call from the safety manager who tells you to use personal conveyance to get to the pickup and then after you're loaded drive 10 minutes down the road and log in.if you so much as question them or rub them the wrong way they will tell you to bring the truck to Chicago to the yard because they need to talk to you at which point a take their truck back and leave you stranded.and then if you think you're getting any of your escrow money or any of the last paycheck that you earned think again. They also operate under a few more different names one of which is Goldway. I wish somebody would read this and have the proper authority to shut these people down.

    So many red flags....
    Chicago
    escrow
    specific ethnic group
    multiple names
    likely a 1099?

    And that's before they required you to run illegally. At what point are there too many red flags to walk away before the first run?

    Hopefully you end up landing on your feet driver. If your record is good enough, you can avoid the 1099 jobs. Those 1099 companies in Chicago definitely play by their own rules. If you gotta do something to clean up your record and get some income for a period, I get it....but you gotta get out asap.

    1099 trucking jobs are all over the country not just Chicago.
    We hear about Chicago a lot because of the immigrants but you gotta understand here in Vegas I see many guys from down south running trucks with 1099 drivers.
    It’s best to stay away from 1099 jobs completely.
     
    JoeyJunk and Dennixx Thank this.

    True but in this particular case the 1099s are popping in areas around Chicagoland where they are least expected. Streamwood is more of a family oriented village,definitely not an area where one would expect a 1099 to be based there-it’s mostly subdivisions and apartment complexes.
     
    JoeyJunk, Lonesome and Catmando Thank this.

    guessing the “sucker born every minute” is ringing tru. Because looks like these immigrants are succeeding enough to expand?

    It would seem so given the reports we’ve had on here. Closest major cities with industry or manufacturing are Elgin (10 minutes west) Bartlett (next town over south/southwest),Hanover Park(next town over east/southeast) & Hoffman Estates (due north/northeast). I-90,US-20,Illinois Route 19 & Illinois Route 59 are the major truck corridors in the that area.
