Driver Solutions P.A.M/Decker Transport — Unfair treatment and false advertisement
Driver Solutions, PAM and Decker Transp0rt has false advertisements in their brochures. It is a gimmick to get people to go to enroll in their programs. The brochure states that a driver can expect to run an average of 2500 miles per week. Some weeks may vary a little more or less. Since I have been driving I have experienced a lot less miles. Then one week I worked my paycheck was only $5.20 and I have children to support.
I worked for Decker Transport. I stayed out for 3 weeks at a time. I gave them 3 weeks notice for the next home time. They refused to send me home. When I got off my home time, they punished me by not giving me any miles and tried to make me go back out as soon as I got home. Plus I came home 2 days later than I was supposed to. I was suppose to see my son play football.
My truck had an air leak and went back to Decker to get my truck repaired. I talked with the Decker supervisor and showed him a spreadsheet of mileage and average per week which came out to be only 1300 miles per week. I showed him the brochure from Driver Solutions that stated how many miles one can average per week which was 2500 miles. He said he would look into it.See the Top 10 Worst Complaints in Tonitown, AR I did not receive a load for over 24 hours while my truck was being repaired. This would then entitle me break down pay. When my dispatcher asked me if I was ready I told her yes. I asked about my breakdown pay and my detention pay from my dispatecher. I explained to the dispatcher that the shipper did not load me for 7 hours. My dispatcher told me she does not have time for this. I have documentation of this from the shipper and consignee. After this, she told me to clean out my truck over the qualcomm. This verifies that I was fired for no reason at all. I just asked if I was going to receive the pay I was entitled to. Per Decker/PAM drivers manual, they had no justification to terminate me.
I applied for unemployment and Decker denied me. I talked to unemployment representative and explained to her about the qualcomm two way message between the driver and dispatcher. The conversation took place over the qualcomm. They read the qualcomm and the dispatcher inadvertently fired me. Now I receive unemployment benefits.
Now Drivers Solutions is coming after me for payment of the school. PAM and Decker should pay for the school, because they fired me for no reason.
Driver Solutions is giving false advertisement. This is a shady operation and I warn everyone not to get involved in it.
