    My son, nephew , and seven other friends and beginners are living and learning. Theses youn men all have two things in common. First is were all students hired by central refrigeration . Second all were hired out of southeastern Washington to start student driving 48. All had the promises of in July and August being transferred to pasco terminal. Central purchased lambweston trucking and its fleet. All drivers to fill the seats were to be from current central drivers from their home Utah base. This was a home daily job working 6 days a week local ag and refer ,hook and drop.Two to three months all nine drivers were terminated. The thing that sticks out was that 5 were terminated with the same reasons and reported on their DACs. All had 2 avoidable accidents. 1 with a stationary object and 1 with another vehicle neither Dot reportable.4 for health reasons.Hireright is investigating. All non rehire , future jobs ?? Good luck. All others getting promises from this company beware. If there are any other drivers having same or like issues please post , maybe enough drivers can get DAC reports for all corrected easier and faster.

    It is unusual to have a group that large that know each other starting out at the same time. This is a good opportunity to compare notes on how this company treats employees. Compile the information and post it everywhere you can! I would like to see more on this. Keep posting! Hireright / DAK is just a self perpetrating system that is used by many revolving door companies to use a threat against employees.

    DTI (Drug Transport inc) in Tucker Georgia. I could write a book but..........
    1: example: I broke a hinge on a trailer door backing into a dock. The door was tied open with a trailer seal. I researched my inspection book and had wrote this issue up 3 times. The charged me $1200 for holes in the wall, roof and floor and replacing 2 new doors that were already trashed.
    2: I spent 5 nights in the shop b4 a trip trying to get a headlight fixed. No Bulb, can't find short, broke wire or whatever BUT you GOT to go!!! Got a ticket the fifth night and of coarse it was DACed and I paid. I requested a refund for the $185 the ticket cost but no go and then the company shut down all Alabama operations with no advance notice until the morning I pulled into the docks and was told no more job.
    3: I won't write that book I'm sure you were looking forward to but I'll say one good thing. My home terminal manager in Greenville, Al treated me good and tried to make up for the unprotected sex the Georgia boys were giving me. Over and Out! Spyder said that.

    Not hard to figure Tennessee, you do your drivers like dirt and that's what you get. Can't stay in business that way. They shut down all operations in Alabama and I found out the next week while getting a few more days pay shuttling trucks and trailers back that half of Georgia crew was let go.
