    Like junk equipment?(I had to take my truck to the shop as soon i was issued it, I showed them the tarps and was told to fix them myself) Like paying for things they should issue? If you like like roaches you'll love the hotel they put you up in! Just look for the ghostly faces of truck drivers by the interstate that have been waiting 2 or 3 weeks for a truck. Good luck with your dm too, mine was pathetic! no regard at all for drivers!....Do research.....stay away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank God that "joke" of a company is finally gone. They were a rollover multiple death accident waiting to happen. I hope Dougie dies.

    So true. 40+ people at ANY company should tell you something in orientation. When I went to Arrow though christmas week of '08 there was only 8 of us. All the others wised up I guess. I stayed a month and got the hek out. I am glad they are gone as well. Bad for those drivers they left high and dry. Hope everybody remembers this junk when they reopen someday either with their same name, or a new one. Hope they get people who light a match on the seat and let it burn.

    They will never reopen. No way, never. Especially with that name, and the fact that they just flushed ALL of their customers down the toilet. Kind of hard to reopen a company of that size with no customer base, no trucks, no spare parts, and no fuel.

    Saw that same Arrow KW and trailer at the Flying Pilot at exit 323 in Winchester, VA a couple days ago. Finally broke down and called the nearest KW dealer in Harrisonburg, VA, reported it and gave them the VIN number. They were VERY glad to finally get that info. Said they would probably have someone pick it up within the next couple days. Of course, the Flying Pilot employees and manager seemed to know NOTHING about that truck that had been sitting abandoned in their lot for the past two weeks, and barely knew anything about Arrow going under. I told the Manager: "Dont worry, I'll call Kenworth and have it moved for you".

    Did you ask about a finders fee?
    Easy money for you.

    On the finders fee thing??
    Yes, any truck/ trailer you help them find is 500 bucks for you. If I remember correctly.
    I told former drivers to make sure they contact them about drop yards also. Every truck and trailer in the fleet had loans out on them. Even the old stuff had leans.
