SEO Reputation Management at its best!

I began working for this company on October 23 of this year. I gained employment by responding to an ad on Craigslist. Like with all prospective employers, I first checked them out through the Better Business Bureau and then I went to the website to get information. 

Once I saw that they had a good bbb rating and that they have been around for awhile, I figured that it was ok to go ahead and pursue a career with them.

Okay, let me fast forward a little to make my complaint; first off during orientation, there was no mention of how much we would be getting paid. As a matter of fact, it wasn't until I ask the question that we discovered that the pay was $0.196 per mile....what the hell! 20 cents per mile and that is only when you have a trip, there is know real hourly wage...the only time you get paid hourly is during training and if you accumulate 60 minutes of wait time. [continued below]....

Anyway, we went through the handbook rather quickly and there was never any real book training on how to properly execute your duties; instead you we were put with someone who has been with the company for little over a year who gave us what I like to call "crash course training"!

The person who was giving us the training could only speak of the negative things about the company. Now at first she was doing a good job of explaining the ins and outs, then she just went in a totally different direction.

There was no assigned manager for the region of the company that I worked for, so they had another manager running his region along with the one I worked for.

There was no organization and on top of that...I have not received my pay!! 

I think that at a time where people are actively looking for work, to many companies are taking a nonchalant approach to the way that they are handling their employees concerns and complaints.

I for one am a person who has nothing but the greatest intentions on doing my best to represent the employer that I work for, with the highest level of integrity and loyalty; but when a person has to experience something like this, where is the motivation for them to want them to do their best to represent the company. 

I would not recommend anyone who is looking for employment in the transportation field in the Washington, DC metro area, to apply for a job with PTI!! They are unorganized and you have to be on call for 12 hours without any guaranteed work...remember without a run you don't get paid!
