Have Been Trucking For 20+ Years Now And Have Herd All The Lies From Recruiters, Dispatch, Managers, Other Driver's And Of Course The CB !But These People @ Barr-Nunn Has Got Them All Beat !

The Recruiter Called me Several Times With New Lies Every Time He Called And Every Time He Called Me He Always Made The Company Sound Better And Better And Told Me To Check Out There Web Site So I Did, Man They Got A Good Website !Check Out There Nice Picture Of The Columbia Condo Tractor And Read About There Nice Equipment. The Web Site Made Me Interested So I Let Him Sign Me Up For Orientation In Charlotte NC .They Sent Me An E-mail Telling Me What To Bring Where To Go And WhoTo Call. I Called The Motel a Couple Of Days Before The Orientation, They Was Susspose To have All The Information I Needed On The Motel And The Free Taxi Ride From The Bus Station.

I Called About Six Times And All They Could Say Was Yes And No And Kept Hanging Up The Phone ! They Had No Clue About Barr-nunn Or What Taxi Cab Company That I Was Sussposed To Use, Yes And No Was All The English They New! I Never Could Get In Touch With The Recruiter So I Went ahead And Left That Sunday Morning And When I Got To The Buss Station i Called A Taxi Company and Paid The 26.00 Fare Out Of My Pocket On top Of The 78.00 Bus Fare Which I Never Got A Dime Back For !

When I got To The Motel They had no Clue Who i Was Or Why I Was There Or Who The Hell Barr-Nunn Was. After about a half Hour Or So And An Interpreter I Got A Room If You Could Call It That ! It Was The Most Nastiest Stinkingest Room That I Have Ever Been In ! Went to Bed Hungry Because There Was No Way That I Was Going Out On The Street To Hunt A Place To Eat After Seeing All The Boy's In The Hood Walking The Street"s !!!

The next Morning Setting And Waiting Untill 9:00 For Someone From Barr-Nunn To Come Pick The 8 Of Us Up Without Any Breakfast Or Even A Cup Of Coffee We Went about 15 Miles To The Charlotte Terminal Because They Are To Cheap To Get A Decent Motel On That Side Of Town! The Van Driver Had A Cup Of Coffee And It Sure Looked d**n Good. I Tried To Get Him To Stop And Let Us Get a Cup Because We Had Not Had Any Yet And He Said No because We Where Running Late ! Now Whose F...ING Fault Was That ? I Wonder !

When We Pulled up @ There Terminal If You Could Call It That! I Thought OH MY F...ing S**t WHAT A DUMP ! And When I Saw The Nasty Junky Equipment I started To Just Walk Away and call A Cab, Did Not look Like The Truck On The Website. The Web Site Showed a Nice Condo These Where Old Worn Out Mid Roof's Not A Condo On The Yard ! Most Of Them Where Just Junk With Flat Tire's, Bent Up, Nasty , Greasy, They Where Completely Striped Down Models With Small Fuel Tanks, Non Sliding Fifth Wheels, No Bunk Heater's/Cheap Seats, No Wrap Around Curtain's No Heated/Power Mirror's, No Power Right Sde Window,No Fog Light's I Could Go On and On But To Make A Long Story Short The Trucks Are Just A Piece Of S**t ! I Have Not Seen A Piece Of Junk Like That Since The Early Eighty's!

Well Still No Coffee Nothing To drink Or Eat They finally Got Us A Sandwich Brought In No Mayo Or Mustard Or Anything To Go On It no Chips No Drink!
They Did give You A Coupon For Supper For One Night At The CATFUYANG Restaurant Near The Motel If You Wanted To Walk Down The Street And Take A Chance That You Would Get There And Back Alive.

When They Started Telling You What You Would Make And The Few Miles That You Would Get Driver's Started Disappearing From 8 Drivers it Got Down To Three And When I Got The F..K Out Of There, They Was Only Two Left Dont Know Where They Stayed Or Not.

The recuriter Missed It By 5 cents a Mile And By 1000 Miles A Week They Said You Would Only Average About 1500 Miles A Week And Make About Four Or Five Hundred Dollars A Week Before Taxes ! Get F...Ing Real Who Can Live On That?

I Could Go On But This Has Gotten A Little Long But Take My Advise And Stay AWAY From These Liars It Took Alot Of Money Out Of My Pocket That I Did Not Have To Find About Them.

Made the mistake

as an ex-employee of 14 months also hired at the charlotte terminal i can say that the company is probably the worst i have ever worked for BUT this was also the first large company i have ever worked for, previosly i worked mainly for smaller more personal companies. in my experience with this company they totally suck at getting u home on a regular basis, they nitpick u to death, and u are left sitting a LOT. they have cut the pay for mileage, layover, detention and appreciation bonuses. However, the equipment is late model and in the case of the truck that i was assigned (which is the same truck shown on the website), it was like stepping into a brand new truck it was so clean. Now a freightliner columbia has got to be one of the most unsafe trucks i've ever been in and the added mirrors are almost useless the way they put them on. The way the windshield wipers work when its raining or snowing/salt spray, anything that gets on your windshield you lose probably 30% of your visibility plus the hood mirrors that they put on are situated where they are in this visibility obstruction and they dont allow u to see down the whole side of the unit when u can see them. The seats are VERY uncomfortable but there is plenty of room in the truck for storage.
