    BAD, BAD, BAD! TERRIBLE COMPANY, I have in excess of 20 years behind the wheel and in that time I have seen companies come and go, this one should simply go! signed on because they have a local terminal in my community and their web site looked great (surprise!) jumped through the usual hoops pulled the necessary teeth, got assigned a tractor! (eureka!,right?) Heck no. 1 st truck (yes I said 1st) was dead in the yard on a Sunday afternoon, called shop 6 hours later truck up and running, shop guy left the yard , truck dies at fuel pump. called shop guy back, (LOL) five break downs later and a service truck (chain) pull start I get my 2 nd power unit. long story short 1 st week 1200 miles , 2nd week 926. 3rd 1190 LOL 4th over all load Manhattan NY lol, basically old equpment old driver managers old terminal mangers , piss poor organization , no miles all at 38 cents a mile to start (NOT WHAT I WAS TOLD AT HIRE) SO NOW i AM LOOKING FOR A NEW COMPANY)

    "No miles all @ $.38 a mile" ? That statement sounds contradictory. First you mentioned 1200 miles, 926, and 1190 miles.

    Were you compensated for the succession of 1200, 926 and 1190 miles?

    As 1200 miles and less is a minimal amount and at the low end of the spectrum, were you implying that this is figuratively "no miles"?

    Thanks in advance for the clarification and I am so sorry to hear that things are not as good as you anticipated.

    Contradictory? Come on now (no miles, figuratively!) As any driver worth his salt knows 1200 miles IS "NO MILES"

    Refusal to return personal belongings , seems kind of childish if you ask me. absolutely clean record , A-1 job performance and a wal-mart gift card, the SHAZAM! these idiots/crooks/liars run us off??? What did they need some freight moved before years end?LOL All I can say is I will get back my personal property ONE WAY OR ANOTHER! LOL Have a great new year drivers!

    Uh...what???

    First you've mentioned a refusal to return your stuff.

    Now, I'm curious. How did this come about? Did you forget a few things when you left, or were you escorted off the property? Not insinuating you did something wrong, just asking.

    Well he must have had more then he could carry when he left or they moved the truck when he was not in it. But if they are as bad as he says then I doubt h is stuff will be around to get.
