Celadon lying about miles..We have no freight Indianapolis Indiana
Normally, you will sit for the weekend and on Monday get a short load (anywhere from 30 to 200miles) to cover local drivers that the company will not hire. The load load will be backed up (sometimes) with a long run. After the long run you will then get a short run that will end on Friday or Saturday where you can then expect to wait until Monday.
I have experienced this first hand on many occasions. After waiting from Saturday morning and asking the entire weekend for a load was finally given one. When I went to pick up the load. The shipper had noted on my paperwork that Celadon was called on the previous Wednesday at 7:06am. Hmmm, and the entire weekend I was told there is no freight.
Three of my friends that work at this company experience the same problems. I spoke with new drivers and they are getting anywhere from 900 to 1300 miles a week. I am driving for another company now and one of the drivers here had told me his experience with them when he went there for orientation. He saw the driver managers telling drivers they have no freight while he watch the load board full of freight. When he asked the recruiter about this, the recruiter commented that the company makes more money brokering out the freight than giving it to their drivers.
Celadon is an International company. Celadon Canada (Canada) and Jaguar (Celadon Mexico). I live in Laredo, TX and I have seen and spoken with the Mexican drivers that will come to the U.S. and park their Jaguar trucks and hop in an American truck to deliver freight across the country. On some loads that return to the border when I speak with the shipper they are usually surprised that I speak English.
This is my experience with this company after years of working with them.
