    My name is Gary I want to work for Hurricane Express that it was so cool to have a nice truck well let me tell you about their trucks Kaiden thanks that he is a master in designing his truck let me tell you about it the fuel ratio on the truck is turned down there is only one fuel tank on the driver side they took the passenger side off the trucks die going up the hill from 65 down to 30 miles an hour in their contract it states that if you don’t get the proper fuel mileage they will charge you for it even though you’re an owner operator leasing the truck paying for the fuel they will still charge if you don’t get above 7 miles per gallon their staff completely lies to you to get you in the door I made about $18,000 for that company Only took him $3500 the recruiters tell you that they have a $5800 guaranteed for you after orientation but they don’t tell you $400 they give you one week $600 they give you the next week is coming out of your check after four weeks they guaranteed you $1200 a week after orientation but she only see you about seven $800 they tell you that your truck payment is $90 a day what they don’t tell you is there’s another $1200 coming out of your check also every week for trailers for insurance for fuel for the reefer trailer that you don’t known distain hard to have the company separated up into four different companies Kaiden owns part of it Sheldon owns part of it Mrs. Steinhart owns part of it and Mr. Steinhart owns part of it that’s because if somebody goes after them for a lawsuit each one of them has a certain amount that they own The vice president Sean over there is the biggest piece of garbage I’ve ever seen in my life he’ll lie to you to your face for all of you that don’t know Hurricane Express was in trouble in Arkansas that’s why they moved their company to Oklahoma so Arkansas couldn’t nail them I know it sounds bad to badmouth this company because I’m sure you think that I’m some bad driver all I got to tell you is do your research before you go with this company because their recruiters and their DM‘s treat you like #### they expect you to stay out here 24 seven if you have any problems you can contact the Oklahoma BBB they are interested in everybody’s comments I personally am talking to an attorney that’s reviewing the contract now and he says his contracts garbage I will keep everybody informed what goes on I feel anybody’s willing to pursue a lawsuit with them I would advise you to do that because trucking companies like this don’t belong in business they’re scam artist you’re making them rich while you’re out there busting your ### 70 hours a week or more Donely bring home six $700 when you’re making the truck $4500 a week oh and if they guaranteed you $1500 that’s all you’re going to get but you won’t even get that after they start deducting everything out I’ve been driving a truck 27 years and I’ve got to say one thing don’t waste your time over at Hurricane Express if you want to be homeless

    I went cross eyed:confused: x1 is probably the only one that can decipher it and I doubt that I’d have the patience to read it.

    I deciphered “owner operator”,”lease purchase” and the company removed one fuel tank. That alone would’ve been my first clue to say “no thank you”!

    Back in 1965 that's what the "cracker box" GMC with the screamin 238 Detroit would do!

    I thought their trucks were high horsepower with 18 speed transmission, figured they would pull well.

    They probably pull well because the company removed a fuel tank(weight reduction).lol
    I’ve seen some of Dart’s “BYOB” fleece purchase trucks with similar setups.
