Lease driver

By
Stay as far away from this company as you can. Worked there 5 months and only took home $700(est) a week on average. Worked out of the Owensboro terminal and rarely ever pulled a load under 40,000#. Rarely ever did I get a dispatch over 600 miles. The maintenance program is a joke. Everything in this contract is in the company's favor. After I left I was sent a bill for unpaid road/fuel taxes - heavy vehicle tax and a charge to put someone else in the truck;total of over $586. If you are leasing on here you should get a "L" tattooed on your forehead because you will leave a loser.

God forbid you have an injury on the job

By
I had a injury on the job and had scheduled home time in order to see a dr. When the dr told me I would need surgery I scheduled it for the following week on his advice and called my dispatcher to explain to them that I would need to have surgery and recovery time. They told me it was in my best interest to give up my truck until i can get back on the rd. I told them that was fine. But I would be back in 4-5 weeks. They said it would be no problem and they would have someone come pick the truck up. They did not give me an option to be able to return this myself. this was 4 weeks ago. I just got a letter in my email stating I owe them over $4000.00 to recover my truck. I found out they canceled my contract the day after I told them I will require surgery for an injury I had while working for this company and going through their type of workmans comp insurance. I decided to pull my DAC report and they put a notice on there for abandonment of a company vehicle! I was given no other options!! This company has now ruined my career. They are surely going to be hearing from my Lawyer.

Driver

So Mark A Bradly, you said all the signs said to merge right? But I guess you could not wait your turn because your time is worth more? Seems to that was your fault for trying to pass in a merge zone.

Mr.

By
I am writing this letter to explain what happened on May 11, 2016 with one of your drivers. I was traveling from work around 4 PM on Rt 81 heading toward Harrisburg, PA. The RTI truck was in the right lane as I was passing him in the left lane. All traffic (signs are all over the road to merge to the right lane) where the truck was. As I was passing the truck it started to move over to the left lane. There was no reason for the driver to attempt to merge to the left lane. All left lane traffic was to merge to the right. The truck and trailer continued to merge toward the left making me go onto the berm and off of the road. The speed on this road was 55 MPH. During the time I was off of the road, being terrified I was going to be killed the tuck never attempted to follow the signs and stay to the right. I ran over a large tire on the side of the road which threw my car. The $ 70 .00 I just paid for the alignment is basically gone with the force I hit the tire on the road with. There was absolutely no reason for the truck to merge to the left except ignorance. I attempted multiple times to get the truck to stop and pull over to get his license however he would not stop. I have a video camera mounted in my car which is a state of PA official car. I looked at it after I returned home and it distinctly shows the sign to merge right and my car being pushed off of the road. This is a disgrace. Drivers do make mistakes however in my opinion this was intentionally, being all of the signs showing to merge right. My car had just been inspected and tires and alignment completed. I immediately called the state police while following this RTI truck. They informed me to file a complaint with them and they will follow up due to me stating I feel the alignment was destroyed. I hit and ran over the very large tire which as I have stated threw my car very hard. Here is how I would like to handle this situation.
First I took the video camera and got this information from the footage.
This is what was on the rear of the truck:
1-800-963-3363
215035
235333
US Dot 1955762
Vin: HSHS2372

How I would like to handle this is as follows. If this driver wants to send $ 70.00 to me it is forgotten about. If whoever reads this letter decides to just forget about it or the driver decides I am bluffing I will file the complaint with the PA State Police. The division of the State Police I notified was on Elmerton Avenue Harrisburg, PA.

I am cc the State Police and various sites of your company so this letter just is not dumped in the trash.

Short Runs means not enough money

By
Recruiting Department told me that I would earn up to 1200.00 per week as a Lease Driver. The truth is - the company only has short runs that do Not add up to a good pay check. Before Taxes, I never earned more than 700.00. I had to go!
