    This company is one of the worst company's out there! Let's start with the shop and their (so called) mechanics,that shop has went to hell since Lyman left,Kyle is now the supervisor and he is a big joke,Kurt and Shawn are the only to good ones they got there and the rest can't fix a thing,my truck has been in the shop 7 times and still runs like crap,they fix nothing! The dispatchers have some kind of god complex,I don't think they see us drivers as human at all,Dan and Ben are the worse. Their safety department isn't any better,there is Jordan she is ok I guess,but she just answers phones,Angela does the logs and she definitely knows her stuff,can be hot headed from time to time but to tell you the truth can't say I blame her with all the crap she has to deal with on a daily. There is Brandi,she will help you out with a smile on her face,but only if your a driver that use to be in her husbands fleet other wise she gonna act like your just big bother,can't say much for the safety director he just steeped in but he did say at the first of the month we were going to get new trucks in (suppose to replace whole fleet)and of course that's not happening. They keep changing our pay,first they gave a big raise but made it were they could drop it at any time and believe me they did it on a dime, and now they dropped it again they want us to get a fuel mileage that can't be done with the carp trucks they make us drive. Their home time use to be good but it's slowly going to the way side. Their insurance is a big joke,you are all ways fighting to get your bills paid and trying to talk to Becky(if you can get her on the phone)is like talking to a wall! I have a couple of bills go to collection,don't even see how that's legal. I really don't even see how this company is still open to be honest,if your looking for work and nobody else will hire you go there they hire anybody! If your a good driver that want to protect you reputation DO NOT WORK HERE! I'm headed out the door as I write this!

    Only if you found this forum earlier. 20 years experience? Any experienced driver knows about Star.

    For the record readers don't confuse the sorry Blue Star from Nashville with the Red Star from Morton, IL. Two totally different companies. I believe it's Star Transportation, Nashville and Star Transport, Morris, IL.

    Maybe that's what happened... somebody told you Star was a great company and you got the two mixed up? :biggrin_2559:

    That would make sense if both weren't low paying bottom feeders.....
