Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Star Transportation is not complying with FLSA regarding the support staff at Star Transportation. They are utilizing an archaic law to avoid OT pay for mechanics the Motor Carriers Act of 1935. But this clearly break the law when they do not pay the paint and body shop employees and the truck detailer in which is not covered under this law, overtime over 40 hours, they have their own arbutrary number of 60 hours per week. This is clearly illegal and no one has investigated this practice.

AUTHOR: David - (U.S.A.)

RIP OFF STAR TRANSPORTATION IS FOLLOWING THE ORDERS FROM THEIR UNSCRUPULOUS POSSESSOR COVENANT TRANSPORT PASSED DOWN THIS MANDATE . STAR TRANSPORTATION DECEMBER 19, 2008 Effective January 1, 2009, Star Transportation will implement a new policy to reduce idle time. All tractors will have a standard of 30% idle time or less. Any idle time over 30% will be charged back to the driver at 3.00 per hour...Bill Harris v.p operations....... What? Is this just a cruel Christmas gag? It can't be a Christmas bonus that ended years ago when our small dash stick-on calendar was cut out. So my friend that means if you drive 10 hours you now have been awarded 3 hours for heating your truck! Per day you might ask? No that's 3 hours for the next 2 or 3 days, when you hopefully will get another load on the way for your impressive 1200 mile payday. Fuel at 2.50 a gallon and our trucks using less than a gallon an hour, this seems to be the best money making plot coming out of the NASHVILLE BRAIN TRUST in some time. This is the most arrogant RIPOFF I've heard in the trucking industry, charging a driver laid over or a driver on his 10 break 3.00 per hour for heat. We all know the parent company of Star is covenant transport ripping off their employees must be their true covenant a company with a reputation of a wet turd. It is whispered in warm halls of Nashville the next scheme is renting the driver the steering wheel. Oh yeah I almost forgot: STAR TRANSPORTATION IS NOW HIRING EXPERENCE DRIVERS AND TRAINEES1-800-333-3060 ask for bill..p.s. please bring loads of blankets and your own dash calendar. GOOD LUCK ALL. YOU WILL NEED IT WITH THESE SCUMBAGS.
