I worked for AMERICAN LANDSTAR, and found then to be the bigest liars on the face of the earth. The owner thinks only of himself and not you and your truck  He wats you to do loads that will earn you nothing. Has long has it makes money for him.
Lets say you do a load that pays $2.00 per mile. But you have to dead head 90 miles to get it.  (WHILE HE SCREAMS IN THE BACKGROND) IT'S ABOUT 30 MILES!! because he wants you to get no matter what. Of course, It's not his fuel,tolls,&time it's your's! 

This man has been around for 50 years. But yet has to go to brookers for every load.  Brookers only have loads that nobody wants.

He post on clist using 718 698 0077 or 718 698 0307   If you see these numbers on clist or the paper DON'T WAIST YOUR TIME!!  You will be ashed to run over hours, in states your not tagged for, run on roads that don't allow trucks. And many other things that will get you huge fines.

He has let his insurance lapse in the past. If you have an accident and his insurance is not in force YOU WILL GET SUED FOR IT!!  They give a brooker proof of insurance. They fax it to them.  All they have to do is change the date.  If they lie to owner opps. to linr there pocket...

They will lie to the brookers too.  Stay away from the selfish a**hole!! Or youl\'l get ripped off just like I did.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

"Stiffed" Screwed Himself

AUTHOR: americanlandstar - (USA)

As the owner of American Landstar Transport I would like to set the record straight. Stiffed was
a previous employee for my company. This is the only part of his report that is true. He worked for me as an owner/operator for some time and, like every other paying job, received a paycheck for the work he did every single week without delay.

Working for my company is very simple. You sign a contract. If youre an owner/operator then you sign an owner/operator contract. I have 14 trailers and two trucks. As any good businessman will tell you, "nothing in life is free." I dont expect to work for free just like I dont expect my drivers to work for free.

I do not hide anything from my drivers. I am up front with them from the very start. If they make me money then I make them money.  I gave "Stiffed" a chance to make money and he screwed himself. He came to me and said he wanted to increase his state registration and that he needed a loan to do so. I gave him $1200.00. He took my trailer drove to Pennsylvania, never increased his state registration, kept my load and trailer in his home town, and spent the money on only God knows what.

But wait, it gets better. When I called him to ask him where he was and how he was doing, he tells me he needed more money to increase his state registration. After questions what he did with the first amount he became irate and unreasonable. How to you argue with "crazy?"  I will not lie, words were exchanged, but he is a contracted driver who signed an agreement, shook my hand, and then broke it. 

"Stiffed"then called the police and said he was "scared for his life and the life of his family," Ya right, who does he think I am...... Al Capone? The police called me and after a short and very logical discussion with them the issue was resolved and the police said to me this guy was the biggest nutcase they have dealt with. In addition to the $1,200.00 I fronted him, the money I lost for the days he kept my trailer, and the value of my time he took up on the phone, "Stiffed" also forced me to send a driver out to "The Middle of Nowhere, P.A." to pick my own trailer up. (a violation of his
contract agreement by the way).

A word to the wise, when you sign a contract read it. When you shake a mans hand, honor your promise. When you bite the hand that feeds you..... to get starved "stiffed!"
