Palmentere Bros Carthage Falsifies DAC reports, attacks employees, orders falsification of log books by putting drivers under duress, steals out of pay checks without giving reason etc. Kansas City Missouri
I just want to say that I turned this company in to the Department of Transportation in Washington D.C. and asked that it be examined for "forcing drivers to falisify their log books" and then "turning around and firing drivers after having put them under hardship after hardship to force them into compliance so that it could pass an internal D.O.T. inspection." Palmentere Bros. was found guilty, but nothing was done to save any of the drivers this company attacked and sacked for its forced violations: of which there were thousands that I even identified to a crooked cop Palmentere hired to do its firiing. As for me, over a thousand dollars were stolen out of my pay checks during the year I worked for Palmentere and I never received a ticket, accident, freight report or any other kind of violation. When I quit, because I had had it with their crap, my DAC was rendered unusable for employment up until I went to bat to get it fixed myself. This monster of a lousy company, that is literally nothing but a home wrecker, just seems to go on and on. As far as the equipment; on more than "three" seperate occasions Palmentere forced me to run refrigerated freight with a broken down unit that did not adequately cool the shipper's merchandise. Had anyone been paying attention, said cargo would have been refused and you can bet Palmentere would have taken it out of my pay check. One friend of mine was forced to quit and shut down at his own residence, because he hadn't received a pay check for weeks and couldn't eat, had his dac destroyed when Palmentere reported that he left his truck in the middle of the highway with a load of tomatoes, and the reefer shut off, and he never took a load of tomatoes anywhere during his entire time with Palmentere. When he told Palmentere he needed to eat to drive, he got no mercy, and the truck sat in his drive way for three weeks before Palmentere picked it. If he had gone to Kansas, my friend would have had his last check stolen, no bus ticket back to Alabama, and no way to feed himself at all because the Palmetere's are a family of crooks. The even keep a freezer under camera in their store house and fire any driver that mistakenly takes it for having food left out for employees. One driver even gave a mechanic his refrigerator when he left, and the Palmetere's fired the mechanic for taking it. On one instance, I brought in an extra box of hot dogs left on my truck and the Palmetere's intercepted me and took out of my hands for their freezed. And then later, the Palmentere's tried to charge me on a load when the tally was wrong and the customer knew it and fixed. The Palmentere's took a huge fine out of my check for something the customer knew and corrected. My advice: "Save your career as an OTR driver and get as far away from these evil people as possible. The eat families like goblins. And face it, who needs to work for someone who will rip off shirt in a parking lot and treaten to beat the crap out of them. Palmentere steals from its drivers and it lies to the DAC corporation. I have proof from the D.O.T. and Hire Right corporation." For the record: I had no freight damage, no tickets, no accidents, no late deliveries, no d.o.t. violations and no company policy violations, and I still had to turn this guy in and appeal my DAC. If you're there now - GET OUT! RUN!
