ROGER HENSON TRUCKING IN BOLIVAR, TENNESSEE {38008} WILL LIE, STEAL, AND CHEAT ANYONE THEY CAN! PLEASE AVOID THESE PEOPLE AT ALL COST. THEY WILL STARVE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, AND WILL SIT BACK AND LAUGH AT YOU AS YOU LOSE EVERYTHING INCLUDING YOUR RENT, UTILITIES, AUTOS, AND IF YOU HAVE A ACTIVE WARRENT WITH ANY LAW AGENCY ROGER WILL MAKE SURE YOU CLEAR IT UP BY CALLING THEM FOR YOU AND HAVING YOU ARRESTED WHERE YOU ARE, THEN WILL CHARGE YOU ANY EXPENSES IT TOOK [AND ANY HE CAN THINK UP TO ADD TO IT] JUST TO GET YOUR TRUCK BACK TO BOLIVAR, TN.

AFTER THE SHOP CLEANS OUT THE TRUCK ANY PROPERTY IS THAN SCATTERED IN THE SHOP FLOOR AND DRIVERS ARE ALLOWED TO PILPHER THRU IT AND STEAL WHAT THEY WANT. YOU GET HOME EVERY WEEKEND SO THEY CAN CHECK YOUR TRUCK INSIDE AND OUT, THIS IS ALSO REQUIRED IN THE EVENT YOUR FIRED THEY WILL PLACE YOUR TRUCK INTO THE SHOP AND HAVE THE LOCKS CHANGED.

I COULD GO ON FOR DAYS, BUT TO MAKE IT SHORT, ROGER HENSON, SHIRLEY HENSON OWN HALF OF WHITVILLE, TN AND BOLIVAR, TN, THEY ALSO HAVE A RACE CAR THAT DRIVERS UNKNOWINGLY PAY FOR WITH THEIR PAY CHECKS, AS OF 12/20/06 WE ARE PAYING TO HAVE A SHOP BUILT FOR HIS CARS AND A HELECOPTER WITH A HELEPAD!

SHIRLEY COMPLAINS THAT ROGER SPENDS TOO MUCH MONEY, AND DRIVERS COMPLAIN ABOUT WHY THEIR CHECKS ARE SHORT AFTER RUNNING 4000 MILES THAT WEEK, OH YES, ROGER WILL TELL YOU YOU CAN CALL ME AND TELL ME YOU ARE SICK, OR YOUR TRUCK IS BROKE DOWN BUT DON'T YOU EVER CALL AND TELL ME THAT YOUR OUT OF HOURS.

HIS BROTHER WORKS THE BROWNSVILLE, TN SCALES AND ANOTHER BROTHER IS THE SHERIFF IN WHITHVILLE,TN. HE BRINGS YOU IN EVERY WEEKEND SO YOU CAN ALSO DROP LOADS OFF YOUR LOGBOOKS EACH WEEK, 68 MPH TRUCKS BECAUSE HIS INSURANCE IS SO HIGH BECAUSE HE RUNS THE HECK OUT OF YOU TILL YOU CAN'T RUN ANYMORE AND HE WILL TELL YOU YOU BETTER KEEP ON RUNNING.

FOR EXAMPLE; I LEASED A TRUCK FROM HIM, RAN NONSTOP FORM BOLIVAR, TO WASHINGTON, DC BACK TO BOLIVAR BACK TO BOSTON, MA. THAN BACK TO MUSCLE SHOALS,AL THATS 4351 MILES IN 69 HOURS AND WAS TOLD THE WHOLE TIME I CALLED TO GET SLEEP "THAT IF I DIDN'T GET IT DONE THAT HE WOULD TERMINATE MY LEASE CONTRACT AND I COULD FIND ANOTHER JOB AND IF THEY CALL HIM FOR A REFERANCE, WELL GOOD LUCK.

YOU CAN DROP ONE RUN TO GAIN HOURS AND YOU'LL SLEEP THIS WEEKEND." [YOUR LOGS ARE NOT FILED AT THE OFFICE AS ARE A FEW OTHER THING TO KEEP THE LAW AND IRS AT BAY, IT'S CONSIDERED MISPLACED AT HOME SOMEWHERE.] THEY ONLY SHOW YOU WHAT THEY WANT TO SHOW YOU. HE CHARGES THE BROKERS BY PC MILER PRACTICAL MILES, BUT PAYS THE DRIVERS PC MILER SHORT.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Truth

AUTHOR: chris - ()

I have  been driving here for 2 years this is a good company to work for, none of the things that this driver says in his report is true.  from what if hear he has a bad attitude  Mr and Mrs Henson and the employees  go out of their way to make sure you have the miles you need and that you get home every 3 to 4 days.  Everybody has bad days but i do not believe all this that this driver has reported.

A Real American at heart !

AUTHOR: 1 True American ! - (United States of America)

When i came to Trucking company called Roger Henson Trucking i thought it would be the same as most of the trucking companies in America ! Boy was i wrong big time ! In the 5 1/2 years while working for them and thinking i was doing a Job well done they were taking money from me and other drivers too ! We were told by Roger Henson using the qalcomm. This is a system used by most trucking companies. And i quote " Any driver late on any loads will be charged 250.00 for being late no exceptions " i delivered a load just south of  Birmingham, Al They dead headed me to Bolivar, Tn to do a drop and hook and now this load was going to Toledo, Oh for the next morning. I made it as far as  as Beaverdam, Ohio when i was pulled over by OH DOT. My logs were checked by the officer and he found that i was about 5 mins over the hours of service. i was then told i was being put out of service for a total of 12 hours. i messaged dispatch to let them know what i wasn't going to be able to make that delivery for them and why i wasn't going to be able to make it. the next week i look in my check and see that they have taken a total of 259.00 out of my check and then re wrote a new check for the 250.00 Let me say this and truth be told i have never been late on delivering a load for Roger Henson unless i was pulled over by the police and they looked at my logs. The only thing Henson cares about is himself and how much money he can make or steel from the drivers and the companies he pulls loads for. While working for Roger Henson Trucking i never has my Haz-mat endorsement and never plan on getting it. While not having my Haz-mat i was given a load with 3 stops on it 1st in Nebraska 2nd in Minnesota and the final being in Wisconsin. Never knowing this load was haz-mat once i made it to the final stop i looked at the paper work that was giving back to me by the 2nd stop and it had an X in the haz-mat section. This is breaking the law and he knows it. It's putting everyone who is on the highways at risk of being hurt or even killed. He just doesn't care for anyone or anything just himself ! For many years before learning this these are load being delivered and the drivers (most of them) do not have Haz-mat on there license.  After working as a slave for the Henson family i left. I use to love driving a truck ! No more do i care to ever be in a truck or even look at a truck ! The sad thing is they killed the passion i once had for driving ! after leaving Henson and not being able to find another job i did what i thought i would never do and i went back to driving a truck for a different company. I lasted 3 day and left because if i had stayed in that truck any longer i know it would of killed me And i just couldn't let that happen. i have a lot to live for my family and my kids mean the world to me more then any amount of money ! Let me say this if you are thinking of working for this company DON'T ! They should be put out of business ! Please don't make the same mistake i made ! Not mention how ashamed i am to even put down there name on a application ! I have a lot more information to share with others ! 

Singed One True American left !
