    My experience with Dupre
    Spent $986 on a uhaul, around $400 in fuel to drive 1200 miles, put a $800 deposit down, $490 for the rest of December's rent and signed a $4800 6 month lease to stay in wright wyoming to work for Dupre.
    it should have been a money making job.
    And I figured I'd at least be working for Dupre for 6 months, lol I was wrong

    But literally 7 days later, this guy shook my hand and said "drivers like me are a valuable commodity and i can go anywhere with my skills" and told me I don't have a job anymore!!!!! THIS EVEN SOUNDED LIKE A LINE REHEARSED FROM THE CLASS THEY GIVE TO CORPORATE ON HOW TO LAY OFF EMPLOYEES!!!
    He said loosing this contract caught dupre by surprise, but non-dupre drivers herd this was coming, BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN TALKING ABUT IT UP HERE. And do you really think big companies get caught off guard like this without ever suspecting before hand??

    DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY. they are telling me how sorry they are and how they are the real victims here, because they lost the contract. I'd be one thing if I made some money first, but the end of the first week of training!!! Everyone up here is certain they suspected this was coming, but just hoped it wouldn't and hired me anyway.

    DUPRE IS LIKE A CAKE MADE OF SOMETHING UNSPEAKABLE, BUT COVERED IN TASTY LOOKING FROSTING.
    DO NOT GET TEMPTED BY IT!!!!!!!!
    I spent $1400ish to get up here, $1300 for a deposit and december prorated rent, and Now I'm stuck up here in a 6 month lease I signed a week ago, and I have no job. And they're just ignoring me, not their problem anymore, of course they were the real victim here, LOL.

    Listen to my warning and read the other reviews before you give up time out of your life on this planet for these people.
    You got one life to live, so you shouldn't let it be wasted by bad employers like Dupre.
    CHOOSE WISELY OR SUFFER LIKE ME

    Dupre probably sub the work out. They are a huge brokerage also.. They are known for third party deals I pulled oil out of Exxon and it was all Dupre logistics loads... lol they are always hiring like crazy.. but nobody seem to stay sorry that this happened to you especially during the slow season. God Bless and good luck..

    Yeah, I never thought I would get anything less then six months from Any company. One week though is beyond surprising. I hope they all get cancer. They didn't sub the work out they lost the contract
