We talk about myths and disinformation on line all the time. I figured we might at well laugh at some.

Most of the negative reviews about Prime involve leasing and making no money from it. Usually it makes me laugh when i read, "I lost my wife and house cause of them". No...its because you were too stupid to notice after 4 weeks you werent making anything and you didnt utilize that walk away lease. instead you kept going for months.

Anyway tonight i read one that said, "Prime flatbed sucks. They expect you to work everyday, for long hours of 8 to 10 hours, plus tarp, and never get to see the sites. No restaurants, no landmarks, no concerts or museums, just work. And if you have to tarp in the heat and drop that tarp in manure, you hope the next customer doesnt mind the smell. This company sucks. I thought i would use them as a free travel agent, it doesnt work that way".

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Rainy, I'm gonna have to sit this one out. There are no negative reviews on Schneider. Everyone is happy and content. All loads are drop and hook , all routes are on new pavement, equipment never breaks down and all the drivers are either beautiful or handsome. Well, except for me. That would be the one negative.

Drop And Hook:

Drop and hook means the driver will drop one trailer and hook to another one.

In order to speed up the pickup and delivery process a driver may be instructed to drop their empty trailer and hook to one that is already loaded, or drop their loaded trailer and hook to one that is already empty. That way the driver will not have to wait for a trailer to be loaded or unloaded.

We had a driver at one of our terminals complaining that when he walked up to the t call window the people got up and left and didn't help him.

Slob would have been being nice when describing this guy. You couldn't smell the smoke in the smoking area over his bo. I finally lost my cool after listening to him bad mouth the company for almost 20 minutes straight and suggested he go shower and put on some clean clothes. It might help if he wasn't making people physically sick.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

There are two things you won't find no matter how hard you look:

  • A section on Trucking Truth that allows all truck drivers, regardless of achievement or experience, to voice their complaints about a company
  • A book called: "The Complete Guide To Success: How To Complain, Blame, and Criticize Your Way To The Top"

It didn't come across that way, but their review is exactly why I think Brett is right to not allow a "review" section.

All of these companies have one major flaw. They all employ humans. Humans are known for screwing up from time to time.

It amazes me sometimes though that these reviewers don't realize these companies have hundreds of million mile drivers. If the companies were as bad as some claim then they shouldn't have any let alone hundreds.

No, it came across the right way. I was agreeing with you that most of the "reviews" you'll find out there are utterly absurd.

This truth is one of the most valuable things that is reinforced on this site. I remember well as a new person interested in trucking feeling slapped in the face by all the terrible reviews of trucking companies. It's really disturbing to someone totally new to this, and it really gets people off to a false start.

I think it's very important that we keep reinforcing this. The phenomenon is certainly not going away. It's like roaches - you can't seem to completely get rid of them once they get established.

I read some of ours, and there are a lot that say how the company only fires the good workers like themselves while keeping the bad ones which was everyone else. Which obviously is how all good companies operate

Here's one on my former company. I love when he claims they pay office workers to write good reviews for the company.

"""Several employees have left their truck on highways, terminals and in front on their homes because Usxpress will not pay some or even all of your pay. The system is designed with loop holes to make it less than worth your time trying to get your money back. Class action sue is needed!!!!!!

Don’t believe the good reviews, they pay office employees to write them!!! Their navigation system will get you kill, loose your license and they will blame you, then fire you to make the company look good. They want complete control of your life!!!"""

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
