#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

That Sounds Good

AUTHOR: Freedom Writer - ()

 I like the way the company had nothing to say about how much the driver makes? The driver is forced to run 10-12 hours a day illegally,while I worked for this company I soon found out they don't like to keep any sign of paper work so theres nothing to prove what they are doing wrong.ATRS feels prove that we are an illegal company? I say prove that you are not?Lack of paper work is enough proof,ask them this....what percentage goes to the organizations you have on your donation boxes? How much does a driver make? Telling somebody something & convincing them is to different things.

 look if you put lipstick on a pig its still a "pig" all i'm saying is when someone donates something out of the kindness of someones heart its a donation not for you or this SCAM company to skim off the top and take your "cut" and then give the charity a small slice of the pie. The GREAT PEOPLE " in this world need to know these things to make there own decisions if they want to contribute to a SCAM company.

If you want to help out a charity then go directly to that charity of your choice and donate your time or GIFT to them not these Scam boxes . And to pay and treat your employees like you do is sick just sick. So paint this pretty picture for the world to see what really is happening with our donations... Because as former staff WE KNOW !! Thank You and God Bless.
