    I have empathy for your plight Driver. The same thing goes on at Morgan Southern in Kansas City, Missouri. I put a blog on this site also about this company. If you quit you won't get nothing is true.

    I just signed on as a company driver at MS. I feel like I just tossed my life down the #### box. I was workn 40 hrs a week making 450.00 at my old job. I was told I would be making 750-800 a week. Guess what im only making 300-350 and now im working 12-14 hr days. What a waste. Ton more hrs and less pay I feal so cheated. Now im looking for a new job to salvage what I can to keep my family afloat. DONT JOIN MS............

    Poorboy I empathize with your situation. Before you get any deeper, I would suggest giving it up. I know it's a bitter pill to swallow. That's what a friend of mine did with Morgan Southern. You will never get ahead. Get with your accountant or Tax professional. You can write all that off as a business expense, and go and get you a job. This friend of mine got hired at Associated Wholesale Grocers, a good union job with benefits. Morgan had me starving for two years. I'd be lucky if I got twelve hundred miles a week. Read my blogs about this sorry pathetic company.

    My experience with this company was negative from the start, I went here looking to do a lease purchase. I meet with their driver Recruiter ( Cody ) and when I tell you this man is of challenged integrity, please believe me. He told me that I was in luck and that he had a Truck that was available for that program and it had 19 months left on the lease also they had a dedicated run from Atlanta to Charlotte. The truck felt like a auto does when the harmonic balancer is bad and it needed drive tires. The recruiter ( Cody ) told me that that wasn't a problem that Morgan Southern would fix anything that was wrong with the truck within the first 30 Days at no cost to me . Im thinking great Deal. So I quit my job and take the position with Morgan. The first day I get the Truck there are no new tires on the Drives, there are recaps. When I go to sign the paperwork it not 19 months like I was told its 30 months. Cody apologizes. I should have known then I was going to be in for a rough ride. My first run two of the recaps blow out on my way to Chicago out of Atlanta. When I get to Mt Eagle the truck want maintain 35 MPH uphill !! this is a 515 hp engine and i was only dragging 17500. The temperature is at 500 and its getting 4.3 mpg.. oh hell no ! so I take the truck back to The terminal let the Recruiter ( Cody ) know and he tell me their is no way I can get another Truck but to take it to Detroit Williams. I Do.. turns out the truck was leaking in all 6 cylinders the valves were bent and some of the bolts were missing out of the turbo . long story short it needed a complete rebuild. I ended up sitting for a week ( Morgan Southern continued to deduct Truck payments ) then I was given a rental. Cody assured me that Mr Morgan was of the highest Integrity and that this was a non issue the Truck had a NTP Warranty. Three weeks later the truck is given the ok to be fix , NTP wouldn't pay for all the repairs. Cody calls me and tells me that because Morgan had to pay for the repairs they were going to put the truck into their fleet and were going to terminate my lease !!! WTF. Im in a Contractual agreement with Morgan Southern and this is a way of taking the truck .So now that the truck is actually worth the money they take the truck back and leave me hanging.. Now they want me to sign a document returning the Truck back to them !!!! I say NOT !!!! See Morgan In Court !!!!!! Don't trust a #### thing Cody Says ! They have no Integrity ! NONE !

    Thinking of doing a lease purchase with roadrunner intermodal or morgan southern in St. Louis. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, need to know if I can count on being home every day or at least every other and be successful? Live 45 minutes north of St. Louis off of I-55.
