Complaint / review text:
Late July, 2008 I got the phone # for the England recruiter. She said they received my app. (submitted early in June) & it looked good so they tried to contact me. Lie #1. I got my "free" bus ride to S. L. C. On Sun., then started orientation Mon. Got through the 4 day ordeal, passing written tests and driving evaluations. FYI if you don't go to an England school you won't know all the driving "rules". Then I waited to get on a company truck with a company driver for my first 4 wks. Of OTR training.
I got on a lease truck w/a dedicated run;Ogden to Memphis twice a wk. Supposed to get 2 hrs. Of backing practice per day. Got 1 hr. Per wk. The "trainer" would only so thisspeak when spoken to (unless to shout a direction or criticism) and liked to answer a question with a question.
Sept. Got on a lease truck for another 4 wks. To train as a lease operator. This trainer was younger & more personable so this part was ok.
Oct. I completed my "upgrade testing" andwas intro'd to my Driver Mngr. He said he would find a truck for me so I said I need to go home to "pack" move out of my rental & put stuff in storage.
Rode the bus to Moses Lake Wa. To get the truck. Started driving solo at. 26 p/mi. Lie#2 On the per diem plan my actual pay was. 2375 I could list much more.
