I hope that you don't do like we did. We seen the reports on here and took it as a few x-employees mad so we just over looked it and took the job. We should went with our gut feeling and took the clues as a warning. Boy did we learn the hard way and I would not wish this on saint himself.
the 1st clue of course was reading the rip off report. But when we seen that the BBB was a A+ we thought "mad ex employee". We should be able to trust what the better business has to say... "WRONG"
2nd clue When he got to the yard it looked more like a junk yard or a trailer park but they had nice Trucks so we thought they took better care of the employees and truck than the yard... "WRONG"
3rd clue When the owner has a escape door from his office that goes right to his truck... then you know something is wrong. I guess after a few mad drivers coming in after him, he needed an easy out so he wouldn't get his a*s beat.
My feance is a very well trusting person and gives everyone a chance. He did not give them one reason the do the things that they done to him and his family. He worked hard and ran coast to coast He gave them a year and in returned they gave us pure hell.
The first few checks were good. After a while he ran the same freight and locations and used less fuel and the checks went from $1000.00 to $275.00 or $400.00 "It was Just off" and the way the do the stubs its hard to get it all straight. We keep ever receipt he spent and nothing never came out. They would took out lumper fees and said they reimbursed you but they didn't.
When you would get fuel you would have to wait and sometimes have to call them a hounded times because the don't want to deal with it while they are at home or asleep. Then after you do get in touch with them they have this big attitude with not only the truck driver but the clerks behind the fuel desk they even say Brandon is a idiot and Samantha is a Dumb a*s b***h. That doesn't say much for Hurricane Express.
When he got his truck he went ahead and got the new 2009 so everything would be under warranty so when he got it paid off he would have everything taken care of. "WRONG" He broke down and come to find out when their shad tree mechanic turn the trucks down it voided the warranty on the truck so he had to pay it. They don't want you to go to other places to get the truck serviced because they want to make money off you.
After a while he would only get one check a month for $600 or so and that went on for about 2 months and when you would say something about it Kadens favorite excuse was he needed to get better fuel mileage. well hell they turned the trucks down and he used $30.00 less fuel and still wouldn't get a check and he didn't not take advances out only for lumper's. And they also did not pay for his tolls and there are times he would have to pay tolls 3 times a day and sometimes 6 times just in one trip so by the time you pay lumper's tolls and sometimes you have to pay $25.00 just to get on the yard to get unloaded you loss money.
And they don't care if you get a ticket they will send you places where a 53 foot trailer are not aloud and I know that one driver for Hurricane got a $800.00 Ticket for it and they already knew he could not go there and sent him anyway but they don't care because they don't have to pay it and they make money off of that also. If you get a ticket they fine you any where form $500.00 to $1500.00 What kind of crap is that.
Brandon will till you anything he said he would pay $700.00 to dead head and we never seen that and Samantha doesn't know what she is doing I feel sorry for the only 3 goods ones in the office and that is Jason and Candace and Debra.
There are a few drivers that have been there for a long time I don't understand why because they don't make a check either. He owes so much on truck repairs its not funny so he is that much more in debt with Hurricane he will never have the truck paid off.
I could go on and on but I'm not. So if you are looking to work for Hurricane please don't!!!! your gut instinct brought you here for a reason and go with it don't do like we did.
I am a big beliver in karma what goes around comes and if no law will take care of Hurricane Express the I know in my heart that the good LORD above has a special place for people like Hurricane Express and they will meet their make one day!!!! Thank you for your time and please if you have anything to say post it the more the better.
