Don't fall for the "Owner Operator" hype.
Intermodal container deliveries (Former Employee) – Bensalem, PA – July 5, 2013
Comtrak is a horrible place to work. They get these guys to lease trucks from them, and those guys put you in the truck as a driver.
You will be paid with a 1099, as if you are a private contractor. This means if anything happens, you have no unemployment benefits. They are not paying Social Security or taxes, so a pay of $1,100 a week is not as good as it might sound.
Every truck I saw on the lot was an embarrassment to be seen in. This makes you a target at any scales, or roadside checks.
Their customer base are mostly cheap freight shippers, who have little if any respect for you.
Getting away from these people
Bad equipment, and shady dealings with pay
