    Transking out of Cambridge Ontario is far and away teh worst trucking company I've ever worked for! Been trucking since 1966, and never have I been so disrespected by dispatch all the way to the company owner, who doesn't know his head from a hole in the ground. I haven't been paid on ver two months. I was a company driver for an owner operator, then bought the truck I was driving, it's a cool old pile of junk, runs like a hooker on payday, but Transking, whom I now call TRASHking, doesn't pay it's bills, lies , and when you call in for dispatch, the boneheads hang up on you. They sit you for up to 48 hours waiting for freight, and don't pay the layover. they also charge you 700.00 per month for trailer rental, and if you have to deadhead, they also charge you THAT fuel, whereas they CLAIM that THEY pay all the fuel. RUN don't walk away from this 'company" I haven't been paid for two months

    No pay for two months? Leave. Most drivers or O/Os wouldn't wait for as long as you have.
     
    Badmon and Phantom Trucker Thank this.

    Hopefully you have all documentation of your contract details, and your receipts and etc. You can pursue labor standards, or sue them. it's disheartening to hear that the East is as messed up as the West. Good luck.

    If you were driving the truck you bought, why did you buy a "pile of junk"
    I've never herd of a company paying for a o/o's ⛽
    Too many holes in this story from someone in the industry since '66.

    Correct - depends on the deal you have..
    but most O/O get paid out in about 45-60 days
