    Use to be a good company... Well now they are just a big rip off and liars. I've been driving for 20 yrs now and this is a first for me on this one.. through the years I have worked for several outfits and quit a few... Well when I quit Marten, I was home on time off and decided to just launch out and buy my own truck. So I cleaned out the truck and took it back over to the yard where I picked it up and checked in all the equipment that was issued to me. Got a signed affidavit stating the truck was turned in and in good condition. I even detailed out the truck so that it was actually cleaner than when I got it.
    So what does Marten do ... They put on my DAK that I abandoned the truck and charged me $700.00 for a truck retrieval fee....
    Boy if Old Man Marten was still alive he would walk through that terminal in Mondovi and fire a whole heap of you idiots up there...
    Try to blackball me for trying to do better for myself... shoot I dont need Marten.. But my attorney says he is fixin to have a big lunch!!!!
    So if your planning on going to work for these crooks you better watch your assets....cause they will sure take them...

    Capt Chaos speaks the truth about running away from carriers that don't take care of their equipment. They will take you down with them. I'm SO glad to be gone from USA truck, their landing gear was as hard to crank down in the air than some fully loaded trailers to crank up, all rust, no grease. I had to drive from the west coast to the VB terminal to get my a/c fixed, too cheap to send me to International where it was probably still on warranty.

    tkcowboy stole this quote from Homer Simpson.

    tkcowboy, why are you crying over this? Is it okay if the rest of us cry with you?



    Be sure and mention their Driver Number so they can collect the recruiting bonus. Better yet, if you will put me in for the recruiting bonus, I will talk up Marten even better than they did, and in addition I will even give you the title to the Golden Gate Bridge. Now here's what I have to say; the truth is, everybody with Marten gets 4000 miles per week, except Kabar only gets 3500 because he is a slacker that spends too much time on this site and not enough time driving. The Marten trucks all have gold plated gear shift knobs, and every terminal has a topless receptionist. And every good thing you have ever heard about Marten is true, and anything negative is just horse s---. Now you be sure and put my name in for that recruiting bonus, y'hear?
