I had a great assignment when I left, carrying containers from the railyards around the DFW out to various receivers in Texas and Oklahoma. But we were only covering the overflow the owner/operators couldn't handle. So when things slowed down, we lost hours. I started getting 10-15 hours a week. You can't live on that. They kept promising they were "working on it", but never kept us in the loop about what progress was being made. It wasn't until the day I left, after I turned in all my gear at the customer, that I got my final paystub and saw that they had gotten us a 40-hour guarantee. If they had told us that was coming, I'd still be there. Thanks to their lack of communication I ended up leaving what was really a gravy job.
Good pay, decent assignments
Lack of communication, hard to trust them
