Colonial Freight System
Colonial Freight Scam
Have you ever worked for a company that just lie about everything? Well add Colonial Freight System to that list. From day one they feed you absolutely nothing but promises and lies, lies, lies.
First of all they prey on truck driver that are 1) Desperately seeking work and 2) They prey on truck drivers that have trouble finding work due to your dat report.
They sit you in a room during orientation and show you a chart with two plus and eight minus. The plus signs are what you can make, but the minus signs are everything they take from what you make leaving you with NOTHING!!! They tell you that they're so busy that they don't have enough drivers to meet the demands, but the truth is they don't have enough work to keep the driver working or busy at the same time they don't send you home. They send you somewhere and have you sitting WITHOUT pay for 48hrs. at a time. And then expect you to pay their trucks note weekly even if they didn't work you. They deduct $30 from your pay for picking up one of their trailers from a customer. If you have a household that's still standing, family and kids at home that depend on you, or a significant other it would be in your best interest to keep trucking, because all they want you to do at Colonial Freight is pay their truck payment. Your first check might be $600.00, but everything that follows is under $100.00 or in the negative. Meaning you are in debt to not only your household but now to them. And once you fall in the negative with Colonial you will NEVER recover with them. Can you image going to work for a company looking for a check at the end of the week ONLY to receive a bill? I'm not telling you something I think or heard I'm telling you something I have experienced. PLEASE BE AWARE OF COMPANIES THAT ARE A SCAMS!!!!
