    I talked to the recruiter he made it seem like this company was the best thing since sliced bread now i'm nervous about going there and getting screwed over. They say its not forced disbatch and 1,000 bonus on first check and and would make 1,000 a week and get home on the weekends'(i'm in Houston,Tx).
    Now I'm not sure if I want to go there seems too goo to be true like he told me everything I wanted hear.
    I was also considering Helwig and Son's in Dallas Tx. What do you guys think?

    thanks

    If he didn't tell you the "cons" of it then I would stay away.
    I have a buddy who pulls for them out of Bham,al. an he's hardly ever home. Maybe 2-3 times a month an not by choice either.

    cameras in all of the company trucks. i am doing the lease purchase and there is not one in mine. they have asked if i wanted one to which i flatly replied no. as far as home time, i started out in the houston, tx terminal. even if i asked a month or more in advance, found that i had to be reminding the dispatch. same thing with new dispatcher out of B'ham i am with now. freight has been slow as of late even though we were told it picks up after February. here lately it seems the lease purchase and O/O drivers have been getting less and less on the loads. I have yet to get a company driver to talk with me and compare line haul numbers to see if the loads they get offered are more than what is offered to the l/p and o/o drivers. if your truck goes down they cover repairs and you have to make enough to get the $1000 cap they put you on. I have found though they like to bandaid some of the stuff. i know carriers like to do this, but if you are buying the truck it should be your decision if you want to get repairs done.
