    Just a fair warning if considering this company. They will take $1,000 of your money. $75 a week for 3.5 months. This is not listed on website or told by recruiter. When you leave this company which you will want to very fast don't count on getting any of that back. $250 truck clean fee automatically even if clean truck and can guarantee will find something else to tack on the other $750 for. You will have return truck in north Dakota and find your own way home. If leave within 90 days will have to pay rental / flight. Ohh and after taxes you will make $700 - 900 a week for 2,500 to 3,000 miles. Just a fair warning.

    The first time they took any of my money, like this $75, that I had not agreed to, I would have been gone. I bet the Op signed something at orientation agreeing to it, whether he read what he was signing or not.

    Yes you have no choice but to sign it or pay to go home and your cost getting there.

    It is a $1,000 escrow account the company makes with your money that they deduct truck clean fees whatever else they decide you owe. Just wish would have known about it. trying warn other drivers be prepared to lose that amount. If I would have known that would never have gone 1,000 + miles there . They tell you the first day of orientation about escrow account.

    An illegal "escrow" account. It's not even an escrow account as the word literally mrans it's held by a third party, which it obviously isn't.

    As to the op and signing allowing it or pay to go home. Well, you paid to go home anyway, so hopefully you realize that should have been your first reply when told about it.
     
    JolliRoger, markealy and Puppage Thank this.

    Your after tax wages are meaningless to others. Gross pay before any deductions is the only way to measure compensation.

    My understanding is that they have a $1500 per week guaranteed pay. Did they live up to that?
     
    TB John Thanks this.
