    A truck is like a mistress. In it. On it under it. Always giving it money and time just
    To make you smile and say its mine.

    Rumors are fun, sure here some good ones. There are no EOBR's at LS.

    True in the stricktest sense of the word. However it still tracks you, which is what I think his point was.

    I've been leased to Landstar for nearly a year now and, overall, I'm quite happy. I just had a buddy get turned down by L/S though, and he ended up leasing onto Schneider National. They have a program very similar to L/S in that you dispatch yourself, come and go as you please, etc. He's only been with Schneider for a few weeks but thus far, he's thrilled. He's finding plenty of freight where he wants to run and is making good money. You might check them out.

    You have to look at what kind of felony it was, that makes a difference no matter how old it is. i worked for LS for 2 yrs, they were my first o/o company and didnt have any problems getting on. LS was the best, i never had any problems what so ever. The only reason i left was i sold my truck. I did reapply in 09 and was DQ for incorrect info on app(my fault). I am in the process of going back as of we speak, just need a new physical. Dont give up, do some research and the reason will pop up.
