Western Motor Freight (in Anaconda, mt

I worked for these guys, there main problem is there really money hungry and i mean money hungry so hungry that they take it from there drivers.

My second check i got from them was for 202 dollars out of 1200 dollars check They claimed it a personal loan(express codes)
To pay for the truck needs, you keep reciepts and they reimburse you,
But they seem to lose receipts)So i learned on my first check and doubled up on receipts,But there bold and still dinged me so i know i did not eat 600 dollars +300 from my bank account in food
Hell i ate subway and was lucky to get a sandwich every day no pop candy or any other fast foods. Apples and cerals, peanuts you got the idea of what i ate i'm healthy 197 pounds,
Now there trucks,Put together from a grave yard full of Freights, worn used tires, And there information to the driver for delivery was wrong 9 times out of 10 wrong phone numbers wrong adrress,
These guys are hard up for drivers and they will hire new drivers but expect to get ripped off, And expect to sit around for your next load Up to a week.
They truly are a fly by night, and of course this is there third name. And they do push one guy there needs one more ticket and he can't drive anymore i was in the office when they was taking about it and the bossed just laughed.
I'm expecting my final check and it is 2 days late so i will call tomorrow and then i call Department Of Labor. I need this check so i can get to a job O on the scale i give them a 4 maybe after tomorrow it will be a 3

Anonymous, You mean Spineless NEW
by: Ed May

What a bunch of Spineless little bitches. And I am not talking about the WMF owner or his employees. I am pointing right at you scared little boys that type shit about people and don't have the guts to own your comments.

I Drove for these guys for about 6 months a few years back and it was a tough lesson learned. I agree what most of you say about Keith. He is a pain in the ass. He pissed me off numerous times. Ok, maybe numerous is an understatement, let's go with constantly. But he was probably right about half the crap I thought was bullshit. But only half.

Here are the facts.

1. I was a new driver with a questionable driving record.

2. I was Airline Maintenence Manager for 20 years and after getting caught up in the Airline bankruptcy shell game I figured trucking was easy money. I may have been a little bit off on that assessment.

3. I have a problem with authority. My first grade teacher mentioned it twice on my report card. And every bossman since knows this all to well. Keith included.

4. One really bad idea is to take a job you really dont need. I had enough cash stashed away to survive quite awhile and didnt lose any sleep over paychecks or little things like being on-time. NOTE: Being late as a trucker will not win you "Employee of the year".

5. They gave me a job as a new driver after I had been told "No" by a 100 companies. (estimated but close)

6. They don't pay very well. That is fact. But do you really expect top compensation as new drivers. I would guess that the damage to equipment and insurance for half a dozen rookies is higher than the GDP of most third world countries.

7. They do in fact hire Pre-release inmates from the neighboring state prison to work the shop and yard. I never had a problem with any of them. In fact, i want to shout out to my friend Magic Mike the Mechanic. He ain't to Purdy but he is good people.

Recap: I was a terrible employee, I am a pain in the ass. The boss is a pain in the ass. They have old equipment but new Pete's for every new driver makes less sence than asking a Canadian for ride home from the bar. You know who that was directed at.

Thanks for the job Keith. Seriously, It was appreciated. You fucking cheap ass Canadian slave driver.
