    It’s just 2018/19 all over again. Remember Woody? He was a YouTube expert at Prime. He had 6 or 7 trucks leased and had drivers, you could even pay him for coaching calls. Then one day poof and he was gone.
     
    Bud A., gentleroger, Lonesome and 3 others Thank this.

    This guy should have CDL yanked . He is the exact reason companies get away with this crap . Did he seriously not think there were any other jobs other than prime ? I'm almost willing to bet he has no problem sharing his wife with the neighbors to be a "good neighbor" this guy deserved every bit of trouble he willing agreed to.

    More like the old cr england moments lease trucks and become billionaires. Any idiot knows you can't run a truck on 89 cents a mile. Wich makes me think they have no business mgnt skills.

    I don't get it forced to pay for something you'll never own since they more than likely starve you out of it rinse and repeat onto the next sucker and all there bills repairs and you can't buy the truck outright for 18 months and now they have to frigging train and pay the trainee. Who pays the bill if the driver pulls a swifty move and puts the truck in a ditch . Oo I call ######## more like company #####.

    You keep saying “forced” when it was a choice they made themselves.

    Anyone with common sense knows it’s not a good idea to pay for someone else’s asset. However they lack the ability to get a truck the traditional way so they think they’ll make money playing owner operator with a truck leased from the company and basically letting their bank (the company) control their income.
