    My husband just started with Unimark and is already getting screwed around so it led me to start searching for unimark information. Everything I've found is back from 2010-2012 so I'm hoping I can get some more updated info from y'all. We made friends with another driver and his wife and apparently his drug test got messed up in Tulsa so they're saying it'll be Monday before they might get something back on it. So he's sitting at home. My husband and two other drivers apparently drove a rental car from Joplin, MO to WV and now they're stuck waiting on a trainer that is supposed to be there tomorrow and he's stuck paying for the hotel room.

    Please tell me those horror stories from 3-5 years ago have even slightly improved. Thanks

    Does anyone actually have any CURRENT info on Unimark.
    I am being offered a position but all I see is old posts and info. Recruiting is telling me it’s a W-2 position and not a contractor. They pay for transportation between loads etc. Someone anyone know anything?

    Why risk it? There’s not much good about them anywhere, and there’s no shortage of good companies to work for.
     
    Lonesome and sevenmph Thank this.

    Yep. It was an interesting opportunity. The recruiter is telling me they converted to a company driver model and no more 1099 type positions. Still sounds like some left over baggage

    Now we’re talking. I come from food and freight and the piggy back side sounds like there’s some drama.

    Why would you post the recruiter's checks?

    No! Don’t do that! I like that idea.

    I WANT THE CRAB COUNT AND I WANT IT NOW!

    Oops, sorry! I was trying to watch some re-runs and follow the thread at the same time.
