    Then they changed again. I left the first of July and before then I was on a waiting list for a QC. When they came in, I was told then that I would have to pay a deposit, then the hourly wage to install it. Then the $150 for the scanner. Considering how far in the hole I already was, thre was no way, and I was already planning on leaving then. I still miss going in there and seeing Linda and Ms. Sturgis, the lady in the shop. Is the B$&^* Krista still there, or did they finally fire her.

    SHe should have been fired long time ago. Myself and some other drivers where talking one time, and we seriously think that she has something over Gary. She would tell him how to do his job. Her job was to find the freight back, not going out. She was probably part of the reason that the other two had enough and quit. I will never forget telling me that if I did not like running the lanes that I was on, which she was not responsible for, it was Gary, then find another job.

    Yea definitely! She threatens drivers constantly! She once told me in the office that she wanted me to run a load that picked up Saturday am in shakopee,Minnesota. & 1st drop was in SLC,Ut mon am. Well that's no problem but after that is where it got screwed up. She wanted me to del @0800 in SLC then drive 354mi to Nampa,I'd & del bY 1400. There is no way that would happen, then drive 580mi to west sacramento Ca & del b4 0800 & after that be in Fremont ca by 11am. I stated to her that can't be done legally after salt lake drop & she stated "you can take or sit whole weekend I could care less!" She has no people skills at all!!

    Yes, she does lack people skills. I really wonder what she is holding over someones head. For what she gets away with, and she is still there. I have heard that Mitch will fire someone for less then she gets away with.

    I've worked for John Miller at the old North Star and Robert Low at Prime, leasing trucks at both locations. If you do it you have to make a commitment to work your ### off long term and run every mile you possibly can.

    I failed at North Star because I was a pup kid who couldn't keep his wheels turning, but I had a lot of buddies who did very well working for John.

    The bs scam that Mitch miller has is that they put u one month behind on lease payments from the get go and you will never get out of hole! Also he pays you .25/mi until what they call full settlement. You will be behind as much as $4000 the only way you will ever succeed there is to run 4000-5000 mi/wk as a solo driver. There csa #'s are horrible! Stay away from these clowns!
