    I'm also looking into them as a potential employer, however, I do have a bit of concerns, mainly on these:

    Looking at their safeStat information, they here is what I've found:
    An ISS of 89, (a bit High)
    an SEA / DRSEA of 95.38 ,
    several of their recent drivers had been placed OoS due to falsifying logs or exceeding either the 11 or 14 hr rule
    They've been fined for Fire Extinguisher violations, airbrake violations, Tire Issues, BRAKE CONNECTIONS WITH LEAKS/CONSTRICTIONS, just to name a few within the past year alone.

    Their ability of getting drivers home - especially when their drivers are from the deep SE.

    Now don't get me wrong here, I'm NOT saying they're a bad company, I'm just a bit concerned.

    I considered Taylor but found out they have a 90 something on their safestat. other than that they looked pretty good. I have a good driving record and dont want to be a moving target. Still thinking about it.

    Transport21 leases trucks to drivers at the listed companies. I am going to Overbye but am brining over my own truck. I have worked for the owner in the past, so I have a good feeling about them.

    I figured that out I called them in Jan and asked to see the L/P agreement. They wanted 10k for maintence escrow 5k for another escrow, the recruiter kept calling me after i told him to give us a few days to look things over. Sent him a email and asked him if anyone actually finishes the lease? Told me yep asked again whats the % of people that complete couldn't answer the simple ?'s I had asked.

    So I told them if I come to you I wont pay that amount for the maintence told him that is outrageous one payment that wouldn't go away for 4 yrs. Also asked him about the maintence fund do I get that back told me he wasnt for sure. but kept asking when i was coming up for oreintation. Told him not interested. I hung my class A up for a awhile seems to me all the companies are doin the same thing tell you one thing and hiding something else..
