Here I am on the very site I searched before taking a position at Carroll Fulmers trucking company in Groveland,FL .When I searched for the company to see how many complaints had been filed,I couldn't find any.
They send letters telling you, you are Family and they are your brothers and they will do what it takes to help you succeed........
I thought WOW I have found a great company.I had been waiting on a job in Tampa to come through for months but thought it had fell through so I applied and was hired on with hopes this was as good as they potaryed themselves in orientation.Promised long trips and a sign on bonus of $700.00.
Went out on my first trip and the Tampa Job calls me.They had a impressive presentation on internet and I had talked to the owner several times before the position came open.I told him I was on my first trip for another company and I would like to give them notice before I left so it give them time to hire someone.He agreed to hold the job.Said it showed integrity on my part,most men would have walked away with no notice.
When I returned to Carroll Fulmer I explained the situation,they said I could go ahead but if the job wasn't what I thought it should be they would hire me back.Well it wasn't and I returned to Carroll Fulmer.
The long trips promised were few and far between.I called several times about the sign on bonus and was told they'd call me back over and over again.
They lost a fuel reciept for $100 I paid for out of my pocket.I was told to bring in bank reciept,told that they needed one with more info,went back to the bank and the manager printed out a more detailed one.turned it in and never heard anything.I cleared $76.00 on that trip and paid $100 to deliver it for them!!
After returning from my Fathers funeral they pushed another short trip at me.I told the dispatcher I couldn't afford another short trip and I was told to come clean my truck out.
They siad me I have to wait 45 days to get my money back out of an esgrow account and I had to call for it. MY money .I have to call.
They sent $8.48 out of $300.00 because sombody forgot to tell them i wasn't working there anymore and they pulled out med ins and rider ins when for time I wasn't even employed by them
We have managed to get the esgrow money but they say now I have to have original reciept from gas station with truck number on it..Even though the Bank reciept told the station/time/date/amount and I turned in the trip sheet to match it.
And The sign on bonus..They advertize on the internet..Now they say I didn't get it because I left and came back.I guess the" Family" member forgot to tell me that when he told me to go check out for the Tampa Job.This Family still owes my family $800.00 and they informed us today they don't intend to pay. I can't afford to have Family like this!!!!
