Network Express, Inc Courier Service In Largo Florida Is A Rip Off Place! ripoff BAD COMPANY BAY PHARMACY BAYSHORE POINT TANDEM OF BRANDON Largo Florida
If you live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida or if you live in New Jersey and have considered a courier position with Network Express, Inc then think again. If you are a business that uses Network express inc. Then maybe you would reconsider using these people after I shed some light on this company and their business practices.
I signed on to Network Express Inc. as a independent contractor to deliver (mostly) medical/pharmacy supplies/medicine.
This was in July of 04
I had one day of "training" where I went out with a guy who could not speak very good english. I missed half of what he said and afer a hot day in july (in Florida)with this guy who did not have any air in his vehicle I signed on and took the route.
I even went out and purchased a vehicle that would accomodate me with this position. I was driving about 160 to 180 miles a day, 20.00 dollars in gas that came out of my pocket, figuring everything out on my own because they dont have hardly anyone working for them that speaks good english except for the people in the office, Scratching the interior up inside that new vehicle, tearing the headliner from all the totes that would barely fit, getting a speeding ticket of 185.00 because some girl at dispatch kept getting on my radio and asking if I was there yet? and telling me I needed to move faster. My first speeding ticket in 6 years! Gess what my insurance went up too. I guess I should tell you what I was getting paid. . . :(
90.00 a day but after gas 70.00 and then they take out 18.00 for the radio every week and 5.00 for your uniform. I was going broke trying to pay for all the gas and my oil needed to be changed very fast. But they pay every two weeks.
Crappy job right? well this is not why Im posting this here because believe me I've had alot of crappy jobs and Im sure everyone has but this company stiffed me out of my last pay check. I was so broke the day I was suppose to get paid that I drove up to network on E. .. I didnt have anymore money for gas. I didnt have any money for groceries either. My Son was with me and wanted to go to C.C's pizza after I had gotten my check cashed I said ok. I went in to get my check and Nick Leftheris my boss said We need your uniforms. I said after I was paying for them? He said they were just rentals and that I couldnt get my check until I brought those in.
Remember I didnt have any gas to begin with? Well I had no choice but to try to drive home and back again. It was a new car I didnt know how far I could push it. (not literally)
I made it back home I got all the uniforms and ran out of gas on my way back up there. All I wanted was my check That I had worked hard for and spent gas money for and put wear and tear on my car for. I had to call my Mom to bring me some gas.
Well I give him all the uniforms and he said Come with me. He took me out to their wharehouse (in case I had a fit Im assuming) And said well there was that broken IV pump that had to be paid for and that was 300.00 dollars and then there is the drug test and the background check that you have to pay for because your quitting within 90 days and then 18.00 dollars a week for the radio and then your uniform rentals. He said in reality you owe us some money.
I was floored. The IV pump he was talkng about got broken after someone at Bay pharmacy put the IV pump on top of all the totes that I had to wheel out to my car. As I was going down the ramp the pump fell off.
Bay pharmacy by the way is the company that chose Network Express to run their pharmasuticals. That company is reliable for their own pump not me. They put it up on the totes to be wheeled out like that. and now Network took my last check.
You should have seen the look on my sons face. He was hungry and I had just gotten ripped off.
Isnt that what insurance is for? I know Network express has insurance on the items being transported. Nick told me so. How can a company just not pay you? I dont even know what the labor board could do for me because I was a independent contractor and not considered an employee. Im in such a mess right now that I cant even hire a lawyer. I had to go apply for emergency food stamps and I'll be lucky to hang on to this vehicle I went out and purchased.
Can a company do this? isnt this illegal?
