    For anyone looking for any information on Triton Logistics out of Romeoville,IL buckle up. First off if you're looking to be screwed over and lied too. Then this is the place to be. This place has asked me to run over my hours muiltiple times and refused me to take a 34 hour reset. They will change your logs while you're in the sleeper and you will wake up to more hours then the day before. I was there for two months and was never paid a full check , every week it was something new coming out my check. They take 200 a week for escrow up to 2000 bucks that you will never see. They charge you for any miles you go off route , but yet won't advise any routes to you so if you make any mistake and you have to ride a few before turni g around be prepared to pay 2.00 a mile for your mistake. They have no freight in there so called warehouse and you will run from Chicago to south east or north east and back to Chicago. There is no Texas freight or west coast. So I will advise anyone from the west coast do not attempt this company, you will never see home. Orientation is a big joke they put you in a room at the nasty ### super 8 when there are far better hotels right down the street. They don't feed you lunch or dinner so you will be on your own. This is a European company and they are no good. They will change your pay according to there needs and desires and you have to accept it. There is no insurance of any kind you are 1099 all day. I warn all drivers to stay away from this crazy ### company. I took there truck back to the yard and all. No damages truck was as they gave it to me. Hell I even cleaned it out after being verbally assaulted over the phone. I went out of route due to construction and was called by someone in the office. I was accused of trying to steal equipment and load, I was called a drug addict and threaten to call the police on me if I didn't turn around. I told this guy I was going the way I needed to get around the detour. They didn't care they held my pay check hostage untill i was at the yard. The following week they took a 1000 dollar check and took out every penny untill my check said 0. Charge me 200 bucks for following a detour, 200. Bucks for load being late, 200 bucks for escrow, 200 for an advance which i agree with. 400 bucks for a plane ticket they agreed to go half on with me . They robbed me blind even after i did right by them. I repeat do not work for this company every driver that has followed me there has left and has had the same issue no pay check. I'm so tired of trucking companies ripping us off. I have been in this business for over 15 years and lately I have seen it go to ####. Drivers aren't respected or valued any more. I miss the good ol days

    Good job triton logistics.
    I want to thank all 1099 Chicago outfits
    For showing the rest of us how you literally can
    Steal a drivers paycheck for weeks on end
    Legally and get away with it.

    And keep doing it over and over with no repercussions.
    We only have ourselves to blame for not getting in
    On it.
    Just like lease purchase, these companies
    Have shown us how to get rich of of a truck
    Drivers back.
    And none of them have any guilt or show
    Any mercy. It's just business.
     
    EuropeanTrucker, Hotplate and mjd4277 Thank this.

    Drivers-PLEASE,FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING THAT IS HOLY... Before you sign over your soul and/or your firstborn to these shyster outfits... Do research on these companies before joining them! It’ll save you money and grief in the long run!!
    I’m originally from Chicagoland and even I know better than to mess with these clowns!!! Lately it’s been EVERY WEEK that someone’s getting MINDRAPED doing either a 1099 and/or a fleece purchase(especially out of Chicagoland)!!
    Seriously, it’s like watching bad reruns of Law & Order,only there’s never a good ending!!!!!

    Keep screaming don't do it.
    Just like lease purchase,nobody's gonna listen.

    The hook for these companies is too strong
    For anybody to listen.

    1099:
    .65 cpm, pay no taxes, 75 mph truck.

    Lease purchase:
    Be your own boss,
    Go home whenever and however long you want,
    Make 3000 dollars a week ,
    No forced dispatch,

    Nothing me,you or anybody else says
    Can overcome those hooks.
    If they haven't learned by now, they never will.

    another hook now I see is '$2000 a week average.'

    or 'great money $1800 a week 1099'.

    As most working guys need money, they get hooked in and thats why we have these horror stories.
     
    Lonesome, Western flyer and mjd4277 Thank this.

    Chicago has turned into a trucking cesspool. Bottom of the barrel intermodal work or OTR companies owned by eastern europeans just waiting to rip off drivers.

    To the OP, sorry you got burnt. You said you went on the word of another driver. Well, now some of these companies are using Americans as fronts to suck others in- they tell you how great the job is, pay always on time etc...I guess they pay the guy a set amount for bringing in suckers.

    Bottom line: if its foreign owned but esp. eastern european stay as far away as possible.
