    My name is Steve and I use to work for kandB transportation. They are not the best company to work for, but probably not the worst. I had been telling KandB that the company truck was having electrical and mechanincal problems and needed to be fixed. So later on in the week I was told to drive it into one of the shops. Shortly after bringing the truck in, 2 guys come up and said that they were taking the truck and that I was fired. I wasn't given a reason at the time and still havn't gotten a good enough reason. I was stuck out on the road with all my things. The company did buy me a bus ticket from greyhound and my wife sent me some money to eat withas well as cab fair and a motel. I wasn't able to bring most of my property on the bus because no one is allowed to use plastic bags to carry under the bus. So out of my wifes pocket again I had to have my things sent to me by one of the greyhound carrier service. After posting my first message on here I got a call from one of the higher ups at Kand B and that did not go so well. Then the same person calls my wife and tells here that I was fired because I had an unauthirized female in the company truck. Not only was that not true but it caused some major problems between my wife and I. After emailing back and forth with that idiot he stated that the reason I was fired was cause of operational problems. So I told that guy that he needed to call my wife back and appologize to her for lying and upsetting her. That has yet to be done. KandB still owes me 3weeks of pay and has caused my wife and I to be put in a financial bind. Being put in such a financial bind By KandB as well as their lies to my wife has caused the reationship between my wife and I to lean towards a divorce. Instead of making money working for KandB, it has costed us around $300.00 on top of legal fees. And I feel that they are still to coward to call and let me know where the rest of my pay is.

    Steve can you please give more info as to what the company lied to you about etc?
    It is ok that you come on here a rant and rave but if you want to warn everyone then please give as much details as possible that way maybe the next person will not make the same mistake as you did in going with this company.
    Did they give false info on your dac if so what did they say?

    kand b lies and steals money from drivers paychecks at the end of there employment.. if you are sleeping and will make delivery . but they want you up and moving they call local police report truck is stolen so cops knock on door wake you up . i know sounds weird. .if you post on here and they know who it is they call and threaten you tell you to take it off and threaten to sue. if you sign that paper allowing for deductions at orientation .they can take it all . if you do not sign it you will not be hired. attorney general confirms you sign away all your right to paycheck. so they make up stuff to keep it

    I worked for K and B. there are some bad dispatchers. but I had a good one and my experience was good. the co puts you threw hell the first month. and the expect you to work hard. but Julie in matnce always fixed every thing even when i thought it didn't need to be. and I was payed every dime i made. and when I left they payed my hotel and bus and shipping for me to go to another co. I would go back right now but they don't hire were i moved to. sorry you had a bad time but this is not the typical experience...

    What's the difference? Start a new one? Or post to one already titled with the topic you wish to discuss?

    This co is bad news...the recruiter Sean kept hassling me about coming to work there and I told them I was not interested...kept ringing my phone & stuffing my email...that's when I replied if I get another email..I'm forwarding all emails to my attorney...never contacted me after that.
