    To not go into too much detail on this subject because we are still dealing the Police over it....there were threats made to myself and my child about burning our home down with us in it by an extremely close family member and that was just the beginning of the drama....it is still yet to stop!!!

    This is my personal email address...I have yet to receive any emails from anyone to address my post....just bashing me for things they do not know...If I had put everything in this report that we have been through with this company it would have been 10 times longer or more. I hit the highlights.....that's all I did.....and as for my child...he's still here and doing just fine I might add thanks to those supportive family members that we had in our back pocket just in case this chance went south.....DO NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER!!! Ask and you shall receive - probably more than you want, but I will be more than glad to provide everyone with any email and even speak to you on the phone about this situation......But please don't bash me until you do your research!!! I am here...I am not hiding....and I do have proof of every single part of this transaction....It's funny how people assume I and my husband would not have had a back up plan for our child...we did and it in full swing now....WE WOULD HAVE NEVER TAKEN THIS ADVENTURE ON IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR KNOWING OUR CHILD WOULD BE FINE BEFORE HAND!!! And again, as for my job....none of anyone's business....but I choose to stay with my child or have trusted family keep him instead of throwing him into a POS daycare and forgetting about him!!! Excuse me for caring about my child.....and i might add here just in case someone seems to think keeping him out of daycare is a bad thing....he is extremely smart.....WHY??? because I spend everyday working with him to help him become a better person and learn new things.....if you ever get the chance to meet my son you would see it for yourself...he just turned 3....can already count to 10 and his speech and language skills would surprise you for his age......I want my child to turn out to be a good person and be educated properly and until someone can show me a daycare that doesn't just heard them into a crowded room and leave them there to do as they please....he will be right here beside me learning more than he ever would in a POS daycare.

    I am not judging you. You judge yourself. He has 12 years of driving and you have a bachelor's degree. Then why did this company screw you so bad? Whatever, go waste your time suing them. If a lawyer wants money up front then he thinks you don't have much of a case. I have never heard anything good about Hurricane Express. Why should they pay you a bonus if you quit after one month. If your kids are starving go apply for food stamps.

    The company was doing just fine until we had a family emergency he had to come in and handle....He truly thought he would just have to quit....and if they would have just left it at that....this post would have never been put up.....they offered him the leave of absence while he was cleaning his truck out to quit.....we didn't ask for it because we truly figured it was not an option. And yes I am fully aware of the lawyer side of it too.....may not even get a lawyer....just take it to small claims court and see what happens....it's honestly not about the money at this point but proving I am a woman of my word and I told them that up front....I handle his paperwork on everything...I have the degree.....and yes I have a diploma hanging on my wall to prove it!!! As for the bonus....if they would have told us up front about this, again, this post never would have been put out there....we didn't get informed they would be taking it back until after the fact and in the email I copied here for people to read.....And hun....if my husband and I were so bad off....and he is such a bad driver...why is it that he already has another job after these emails just happening yesterday...he was already preparing for this to happen considering the other emails I have saved and put back......He doesn't have the business degree that I have....he would never have started this adventure without having someone as back up because he will openly tell you he knows nothing on the paperwork side of it....I DO...we made the perfect team to deal with this and again we told this company that up front.....we refused to sign on with them until it was made clear that I could be in the parts of orientation to cover the start up costs and the payments and the contract to make sure everything was in writing!!!

    You've laid out all the facts and you've not addressed the massive amount of FAIL (once again) on your part. You can say we don't know our facts, we are stupid, blah blah blah, but this didn't happen to us because WE DID OUR DUE DILLIGENCE when seeking employment and came to the conclusion that Hurricane was a GIANT rip off.

    i think it's time to look in the mirror and see who the true culprits here are. You'd be very surprised.

    Again this is where you are wrong....that's honestly why I am surprised.....the company was doing great by us until starting Monday morning....yes, we were having a little trouble getting some information from them but we were working with them and slowing getting everything we needed......Did we do everything perfect....NO...who is perfect...I never claimed to be perfect.....so again.....not knowing the entire facts behind this post, you have judged me.....In the years of dealing with trucking companies while married to my husband....I have not as of yet to see one that doesn't rip you off somehow or someway....that is the sad truth behind all of this......Until our go-to person started refusing to help and we had at that time no idea what happened, we were happy with the company....and again....we knew that Friday when he returned the truck that he was most likely going to have to quit because he had not been there that long...they offered this option to him....we never asked for it....but yes, we were very pleased to even have that choice.....Again, we wondered if they were willing to help in this way after he explained the situation to them, why were there such bad reviews on this company.......I do believe the problem all boils down to the fact they had a huge turn around in the office right after we started....up until that point.....everything was going along smoothly for the most part...I even rated them on their Facebook page and explained that I was confused by the bad remarks made about this company............all in all, poor timing of an emergency that was caused by an extremely close family member is what got us....he had never had to take off this past week and everything would have continued to roll smoothly, he would still be there.......that's the sad part....and the comments I have seen about letting "his woman" handle his business...he will tell you himself, he is a driver...not an accountant!!! Last I heard and was taught....a husband and wife should work as a team to make decisions on these kinds of adventures......When did we go back to the 50's where women are believed to be bare foot and pregnant and slaves to the husband.......

    But you didn't work as a team. You both failed and put your child at risk. It is what it is. It's time to fess up already. And learn from this giant mistake.

    It's ironic that all of the people posting on here who are smart enough not to be scammed by outfits like this are the ones you refer to as "stupid."

    NEVER NEVER NEVER DID I PUT MY CHILD AT RISK - WE HAVE A VERY SUPPORTIVE FAMILY AND HE WAS ALREADY TAKEN CARE OF AS I AND MY HUSBAND CONTINUED TO FIGHT WITH THEM.....and as I have said a million times so far and I will say again....did we do everything perfect....probably not....but then again I only know of 1 person that has ever been completely perfect!! I find it funny, that everyone on here immediately assumes we are poor parents because we were not wanting to take the help from our family unless we had to....how hard is that to understand.....those back up plans that we used were going to be our last resort!!! We like to handle things ourselves.....not rely on others to get us out of a jam, but they were there and in place before we ever set foot out the door to start up to that terminal.......Honestly, this stupidity has just shown me just exactly how many people out there that can't see the forest because of the trees.....quit assuming and ask....I am more than willing to share anything with you....I AGAIN HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE......but instead, people choose to assume instead of contacting me or my husband.....funniest thing....when offered if someone doesn't understand something a way to contact that person....no one does.......just bash the person and go on!!! Wake up people....this again is the extremely short version of what we went through with this company...I am not even going to say they are horrible....because honestly, we were happy until we lost our original go-to person and then started getting the run around......from there everything within 1 week spiraled completely out of control....
