    Personally I would stay out a year straight, if that would help me get the truck paid off faster.

    Pulling up every post you can find on Sammons just to relay the same information in each one is spamming and just comes across as childish.

    Get over it already, you didn’t qualify with them.

    You do not HAVE to stay out any amount of time. They WANT you to stay out for 4-6 weeks so that you get the truck paid off quickly. If you don’t want to you don’t have to.

    Unlike many of the leases out there they actually seem to want their drivers to get the truck paid off and own it.

    First of all, I even posted I thought the company would be a good company to work for in one of my posts, all I showed was my experience with them, just like the hundred others on this site, so nothing to get over?

    Second, I wasn't sure if I posted on one thread, that the people watching other threads would see it, so that's the only reason I did it, was not done to SPAM anyone like you assume, it is info that I thought people needed to know. If you want to think it was childish, then that's your conclusion, don't matter to me how you took it and not going to loose any sleep over your assumption. I just wanted people to be aware so they have their bases covered in case they were going by what their site actually said and what I was told.

    And they might have told you that you didn't have to stay out 4-6, but I'm quoting exactly what they said to me and she never said that to me?? Oh well. And I have no problem staying out 4-6 weeks, but when they assume I won't just because of how I ran in previous jobs was a excuse, just baffles me. LOL

    We still support that if you want to get the truck paid off you'll need to run and it should be 4 to 6 weeks between taking a week off. We expect you to get thru the house during that time but I don't consider a day here and a day there home time, it's a visit.
    SheepDog Thanks this.

    So if consider being home early Saturday morning and leaving Sunday afternoon (long enough to get my 34 in) would that be suitable for the way you guys run? I'm just across the river from Evansville,IN. I would be fine unloading in Evansville, Boonville, Rockport and dead heading home if that's the way I could get home.

    I really wanted to do a lease purchase with them. Applied and everything, but was turned down because of my DAC report. I was really bummed about it because I liked their lease structure and they seemed like one of the best l/p companies out there. Oh well, I'll try again later.

    I was recently accepted, but alas something bad happened in the family the day after I applied, a very nice lady said she would hold the app, until I have it resolved. She also said she would send me a copy of the lease. So I'm excited to give this a shot.

    Been here 6 months so far, best company I have ever driven for and the L/P deal has been working out great. Best move I have made in a very long time.
    milskired and LostOne9 Thank this.
