*UPDATE EX-employee responds: What and who you have to do to get miles
I feel everyones pain if you ever worked for Covenant.My story is alittle different then most but the outcome is still the same.I worked for Covenant from Dec-07 till Oct-08.I spent alot of time sitting no loads no miles and no one who cared.I was waiting for that $2500 bonus Ha!Ha! more like $1600...There were many and i mean many weeks i went without pay but i still stuck it out.Went through 3 Partners who left the company and stuck it out..
I always had a hard time getting home so i was forced to drive my own car from chatt to michigan everytime i wanted to go home...If i wanted to take my truck home $250 charge....So i always put in my homrtime at 12 midnight because i still had a 10 drive to Michigan.More money out of my pocket!!!!!!
In Oct 2008 the day i was going to take my hometime they made sure i was no where close to chatt...after running all day i stopped for the night around 4pm when i received a call from home that my father suffered a major stroke and that he was'nt going to make it so i needed to get home ASAP...So i tried many attempts over the Qualcomm to contact dispatch,and never got a response.
finally i called them and told them of my situation and they said they would get back to me.Which they didn't i asked to be re-powered so i could get how they told me theywould get back to me.they didn't...finally they told me that i would just have to get some sleep and deliver my load in the morning which was about 60 miles away in Virginia...
I couldn't believe what they had just said i pleaded over and over with tham to please get me home.But they said the best they could do is to get me to Charlotte terminal take a load from there to Chatt then go home..That following day my father passed away with all my family at his side but me..The benevolance fund didnothing for me i drove my car another 10 hours home.On my return to Chatt i wanted some explantions so iwent to see Doug Cook .And he basicly said "Everyone Has Problems you need to get over it.
So i had some words for him.And he fired me how funny right?Then they lied on my DAC so i have'nt worked in 6 months.I am filing a suit against the company for Negligence..And a complaint to the EEOC about them making me lie on my Logs to suit there needs...I will go as far as i can against Covenant I never had a chance to tell my father good-bye and that still haunts me today.
I am contacting every newpaper TV and radio in Chattanooga with my story..I want them to pay for my grief,Financial loss,depression,the nightmares,the emontional distress...I will never be the person i was Thanks to Covenant...
