    Company Driver job disguised as Lease Purchase so the company doesn’t have to pay the employer part of taxes for the employees they have.
    You will 100% be treated like a company driver while being paid like you’re self employed.
    I stayed 1 week, left on Thursday dropped the truck back off on the next Thursday.
    The only difference here than a company driver elsewhere is YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL TAXES!!!!
    One 150 gal tank on the truck
    Driver/Road Facing dash cam that records 24/7
    Forced Dispatch
    Forced/Mandatory Routing
    Fee’s, Fee’s, FEE’s
    The money they TAKE for maintenance (.15 or .09 cents per mile) is NON REFUNDABLE
    Company Fines for infractions
    Goverened at 66mph cruise 70 on throttle
    Trucks only idle below 30 degrees and above 95
    Nice looking trucks
    Cross Country Loads
    Nice people
    You will be told where to go and how to get there.
    I was told they expect 10-11 hours of driving a day by my dispatcher.
    Expect a call from your dispatcher if you take a break longer than 10hrs
    They forget lease operators are their customers too.
    Some drivers get LLC’s for a rented truck who’s revenue is decided by a dispatcher.

    Jumping from one scam to another isn't staying focused...I've been with one lease co now on my 3rd truck which I'll be paying off in a few yrs...jumping from one lease purchase co to another is not staying focused...

    It sounds like you keep hitting your thumb with a hammer and expect a different outcome.
