    I answered an ad on craigslist for an over the road driving job.
    The owner Sorin Konnerth of Konnerth llc, said they run 4000 + miles a week, as a solo driver 4000 miles a week is very tight driving an entire 11 hours non stop. I explained to Sorin that I would not break the law in any way, which I would follow the hours of service to the minute.
    When we got to Chicago I met the owner of the company I would be driving for,
    Prosport logistics 2260 Landmeier Road Elk Grove Village, IL 60007
    The owner of prosport sat me down and showed me ways to drive VERY illegally, they use loose leaf log books, so when you get near your 70 hours, you can throw out your logs and fake a 34 hour break, I would not run over hours, the final straw with these crooks was when they got me a load from Decatur il, to Lancaster pa, 770 miles, non stop, they wanted me to lie to the broker saying I was a team truck, gave me a fake co driver named Nicole, I would not do it, instead I drove to Omaha and returned the keys to the truck to Sorins wife and quit ! every truck pro sport has runs illegally , the owner of prosport told my boss Sorin , why did you hire an American the will not break the laws like we do !! all of his drivers are Russian, Romanian etc… they run extremely illegal do not obey DOT laws whatsoever !!!

    Agreed. Running like that makes them a danger to not only other truckers, but innocent travelers. They have no business violating the HOS anymore than any other business has violating their laws.

    So even though you KNEW its basicly impossible to do that, you still answered the ad?? :biggrin_2556:

    Ok so you DID know:biggrin_25526:

    But yet you still didnt RUN away??:biggrin_2556:


    You answered the ad seeing BIG MILES, hoping BIG $$!! Dont feel bad I did it to, and when I got burnt out is when I started to complain about "running "THAT" illegal"!!

    I know you won't admit; but to sit there and type that out, all the while KNOWING how many miles they wanted you to run,acting shocked is Bull Crap!!

    Usually when there is a ad on Craig's list for trucking it's bad news... Nothing usually good comes out of craigslist for Trucking jobs...

    Secondly why on earth did you even give this guy the light of day you read the ad you simply should have just ignored it
     
    astright Thanks this.

    Welcome to the world of trucking Chicago style. That is exactly how these fly by night scavenger outfits operate. They hire immigrants, run them to death, and classify them them as 1099 "non employees."

    I drove for prosport and i have to say this guy is full of it. Not once was I asked to run illegal nor did any owner try and teach me illegal things. I did between 3k and 3500 a week legitimately and sometimes if they were drop n hooks coast to coast i could get in close to 4k.

    The owners are both ex drivers and so they take good care of the drivers.

    Were there drivers that ran illegal? Yes but they were owner ops that only got loads from them nothing more.

    i believe this guy is a disgruntled employee that just wants to trash the company.

    we had a bery good csa score and almost always got green light at weigh stations.

    They use paper logs but also give you the option to use electronic logs. Its up to you.

    When you're up against a trouble,
    Meet it squarely, face to face;
    Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
    Plant your feet and take a brace.
    When it's vaint to try to dodge it,
    Do the best that you can do;
    You may fail, but you may conquer,
    See it through!
    Black may be the clouds about you
    And your future may seem grim,
    But don't let your nerve desert you;
    Keep yourself in fighting trim.
    If the worse is bound to happen,
    Spite of all that you can do,
    Running from it will not save you,
    See it through!

    Even hope may seem but futile,
    When with troubles you're beset,
    But remember you are facing
    Just what other men have met.
    You may fail, but fail still fighting;
    Don't give up, what ever you do;
    Eyes front, head high to the finish.
    See it through!

    The way I've seen pro sport's people drive, it's obviously another " Chicago Russian" outfit that will conviently change their name when dot comes calling.
