i currently work for us freightways and this place is for you if you don't want to pay your bills or truck payment, they bring you to work for them promising all this money, 88%, sounds great over the phone until you get there and find out that 88% of nothing is nothing, they will give you loads that are double and triple booked and also tell you it pays to go here, but to get out of there you basicly run for fuel, just recently i have found when you complain about sitting all the sudden there is a great paying load right up the road so just hang out and wait,
then when 2-3 hours go by and you call to see where the load info is.....oh that load canceled we are working on something for you. the dead head miles are just awesome when they hired me i was told that i lived in an excellent area to get home and back out, the shortest i have had to dead head from the house is 140 miles one was 220, in case you were wondering they do not pay dead head! recently i had a load going to the border of new york and vermont, sat there for 1 day then was told about a load in rochester ny so sick of waiting for dispatch to send the info(which could be long enough to be late for the load)
i started heading that way i got to syracuse and called to see when i would be getting the info and was told the load cancelled, big suprize, then they had a load in buffalo ny, i had already informed them that the load i had dropped the day before the customer had got snow and water in the trailer, the load i was picking up was paper so they refused to load me, i ended up dead heading to detroit and had to work for a relitave to pay my rent, (i did get some work done on the truck and i guess that was a bonus). when i told them i was going to quit i was told thats ok but if i were you i would read your contract,
the contract that i had 5 minutes to sign because my $120 drug test didn't come back until 445 so i could wait in the parking lot for another night or sign now and roll (i will never sign another anything without reading first and completly) any way the contract says in a nut shell if you quit without 30 days in writing they can keep your escrow(1500) and 1000, so basicly now i know they are going to keep the escrow no matter what. they also don't tell you that they pay for absolutly nothing no logs included.
i informed them that due to the fact i wasn't recieving my weekly settlements they were in breech of contract, they didn't even care, they get you for all they can and when they are done with you than thats it you can go. i am in the process of getting my own authority and am going to go to work for ch robinson world wide, to any owner operators out there i would say if there is any way for you to do the same go for it. this is the worst company i have ever come across in my life!
