Paschall Truck Lines / monies owed

1 Murray, KY, United States Review updated:

Let me start by saying that promises made aren't always what you get. When I went through orientation with PTL they promised alot of things.First and foremost that we as drivers were first priority. When you hit the road for them, suddenly you become a kicking post for them. I worked for PTL for about seven months. In that time, I was denied numerous funds and payment, that I had coming to me. From my first paycheck, to my last paycheck something was missing on virtually every single one. Short hauls that came across the qual com. I never got them. Miles that I drove, I never got them. When I would contact finance, or driver services, or whatever department they shuffled me off to, noone had any explination. The only thing someone would finally say was we'll check it out. Then you don't hear anymore from them. Then when you finally get mad enough to really ### they find a way to shut you down for an undetermined period of time so you dont get the runs. I kept every Log book page, every reciept, and every quall com. message they ever sent me. That's right I took pictures of all my qual com. messages. One things for sure when this all comes to a head, I have undeniable proof of all my losses. I feel that every driver should do the same thing. That way they cant get out of there obligations to us, [THE DRIVERS] After all were the ones out there driving the miles, staying away from home for months at a time. We deserve our monies coming to us. Why shouldn't we hold the people responsible that are supposed to get it to us? I fully intend too. During my employment at PTL . I never had any moving violations, or accidents. I never damaged any vehicle or anything. As a matter of fact I started to quit once about a month before I finally did. I was informed by someone in the offices that they needed drivers like me, that I was 98% affective. They were right about one thing. They needed suckers like me who actually gave a damn, about their precious freight. While they kept my money and got my wife and myself evicted from our home .Well we are still living in our car, but it's better than a PTL sleeper.

    i am sorry this happened to you but rest assured you are not the only one that continues to be dumped on. I am by far surprised they are still in business because they screw something up everyday. I dont know how many times i told them i could pick up or deliver early and the most i got was i could try. Well no ###, I am not new at this you ###. I am sure your dispatchers and even your director were just as clueless as mine. Mine was Larry. was a dick.

    Wow sounds like you guys had some ### luck with PTL. I guess I been pretty lucky they always pay me on time and correctly. Yeah I guess sometimes my dispatcher can be an ### and I honestly wonder if he's ever been OTR a day in his life but you take what you get and for the most part they do what they say. Guess it's all in the way you treat people. I've been here 18months and so far so good.

    I have been with ptl almost 4 years and i can honestly say that in the 38 years i have been in the trucking business that ptl is the most driver friendly truck line that i have worked for. I would say that most of the drivers i have met since being at ptl who are unhappy about the company bring it upon themselves. These whinners and complainers are recent school graduates who think this is a sightseeing adventure instead of a job. If they trucked half as much as they sit around truck stops talking about trucking they would be fine. Calling this new breed of driver a steering wheel holder is giving them a compliment. They should have been around when I started and all we had was cabovers, no air conditioning, no power steering, no air-ride equipment, etc.. These cry-babies dont know what it means to work, they need to just shut-up and go back home to mommy.

    I have been leasing for about a month now. I have never refused a load. I grossed about 9000 in my first month. Sounds like a lot right. What I seen out of that 9000 is whopping 104.00. And that was 3 was ago. Do not go here they find any reason to not pay or deduct money from your check.
