I worked for this man twice. The first time when I left, it was due to being very ill. I didn't have any insurance coverage, and needed surgery. I didn't want this to affect my ability to get another job later when I was well, so I just quit so I wouldn't be accused of being late. The truck I was driving during that time had mechanical problems and the driveshaft fell out.

I thought that was a unique one-of-a-kind incident, but when I returned to work for this man again, the next truck had similar mechanical problems which I reported. He would do nothing to repair it. It needed a clutch and the clutch was adjusted 5 times in 8 weeks. After one such adjustment, the linkage fell off. Then the man wanted me to drive to Chicago without a clutch from Montana.

The first trip I did for him the second time I worked for him, I never got paid for. The trip envelope was lost by TripPak Services, and allegedly never got to the company. I made many, many phone calls to TripPak, to see if it could be recovered, and they said that if they find a lost package, regardless of the carrier that's supposed to handle it, like FedEx or UPS, they deliver it anyway. Moreover, freight bills are often faxed to shippers, receivers and trucking companies, so I am certain that my boss got paid for this trip. But I didn't. I also wasn't reimbursed for expenses, such as oil, tolls, CAT scale fees, lumpers, etc. There was never a reimbursement on my pay stub. He still owes me $1400.00.

One trip going from Yakima to Cleveland (2400 miles) had 3 stops on it to pick up. It was Monday afternoon before I even got the dispatch, and they expected me to be in Cleveland Thursday morning. There were unexpected repairs that were needed, along with repairs that were needed due to incompetent mechanics at the yard. I was very tired and Mr Blinsky got ticked off at me for shutting down when I had put in more than a full day's work. He started telling me how I should write my log book so I could drive another 1000 miles to Phoenix by the next morning.

I had had enough, and told him to route me back to Yakima. I would turn in the truck. He wasn't there when I arrived, but another driver was, that he trusted. So I turned it in to him. I had to put my stuff in storage, since Mr. Blinsky wouldn't allow me to go home and unload my belongings. He wouldn't allow me to go home at all, come to think of it. He thought he owned me.

When I changed jobs, he told my next employer that I couldn't back the truck, and was late everywhere (Gee, I wonder why?!). Funny, though, he hired me back the second time! I wonder why that was if he really thought I couldn't back the truck. Then he started telling employers that I violated company policy. This is a man who is trying to harm me. He wants to prevent me from getting work.
