i went to work for this company in february 2012 driving truck.  was staying within dot hours of service for the first month.  after that i was forced into working exceeding the 14 hour rule.  in july of 2012 to august 2012 i got caught in days of 17 to 20 hours a day.  i finally went out on sick leave because i wasn't getting proper rest in that time.  i have developed stomach problems of which i am under doctor's care.  i hired an attorney to try to get my out of pocket expenses reimbursed. 

     this company loses drivers because of the force of dot hours of service.  one day my sleeper was in the shop for 2 days.  i was forced to stay 40 hours straight in a day cab truck.  this company should be investigated of what they are doing to people.

#1 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

Driver Safety is Important to T. Horzen Refrigerated Transport

AUTHOR: Ice Sickle - ()

We here at T.Horzen Refrigerated Transport take DOT regulations very seriously. We do not require our drivers to go over their hours of service, nor do we encourage it. We provide safe, comfortable, well maintained trucks to our drivers and take every action necessary to keep them in top condition.

Hotrod's alligations of forcing him to exceed his 14 hours, and putting him in a day cab for 40 solid hours, are unfounded. We would be more than happy to look at any proof, but as of now, none has been provided.

Drivers know when they take an OTR position, they may not make it home every day. That is a part of the job that every OTR driver both loves and hates at the same time. Any driver we hire is made well aware of the scheduleing before signing on. That being said, we would not put an OTR driver in a day cab for more time than absolutely necessary, and never beyond the legal drive time limits. If a driver does have cause to use a truck without a sleeper for a long trip, we ALWAYS provide a accomodations in order to insure adequate rest. We do what we can to schedule service around a driver's schedule. But as safety is a top priority, sometimes it is unavoidable that a driver be in a day cab for more than one day. Our safety rating is proof of our dedication to both our drivers and our customers.
