Oh Daniel, say hi to Justin for me. Just look over you shoulder and say hi... he sits right behind you. Would you like my truck number?? Maybe it is time for me to contact the lawyer and get the layover and all the miles FFEX stole from me. Keep posting here and I will. YES I was a driver for 16 months dealt with you and all the other deceivers there. Already been counseled by a lawyer to do it. Walter Black may be gone but, you will have to answer. Hey do remember this? Do you like football?? How about home time for the super bowl............. Sad, I dont know how you do it. Lets see, students hitting school buses, 4 trailers stolen out of Detroit. Why dont you speak truth? All this in the last 2 months?
Sad indeed this is pushing me to go to the lawyer and it wont be for me but all the others screwed out of miles, layover and detention time that is collected and not passed on to driver; as was to be when I was hired at 25/hr. Per Walter Black when I was the keys,"we dont pay that anymore" As a lawyer told me this is criminal, not only labor law.
There is a reason there is so many student drivers, and the DOT should come in there, perhaps a little undercover?? FFE needs to be shut down for the safety of people eating the food gone bad and improperly trained drivers going down the road in 80000 lb bombs. Saftey is not the key here or driver retention. It is about 27c a mile and being held hostage on the road. Not a good formula.
You do have them pretty well tagged. A few years ago at a conference, one of their VP's played host and gave speeches, talks, and ran seminars. Hedge-something was his name. In his position he called FFE drivers 'aimers'. That's right, you aren't professionals, you just aim the truck down the road. Didn't know you were so well thought of did you?
Wow!!!!!!!!!! if ffex has problems with the following: irs+osha+dot+labor dept investigation+accidents+stolen trailers=will reflect results of bod and new mgt team leadership and historical losses the last 3-4 years and a dismal start on 2012.
