Wow....dumbass..... that cuts to the quick. I see Arrow hires elementary special ed kids now. I guess you are a real insider. You fit right in with the morons. Now go away little child, you're out of your league here.

If the IRS showed up like that then I will be on my knees pray to God (and I'm not joking one bit) that others come in not just the Fed's but the State. They need people to bust in there and see all the things that need to be seen. ODOT, USDOT, Insur commish, WorkComp Insur YOU NAME EM. These scumbags have ruined the lives of MANY MANY MANY honest good hardworking people.

Well, if the IRS is their that should be interesting - guess Doug is sweating bullets now because I'd be willing to be he does not report all the bills/trips he takes on Arrows money as INCOME. And of course his side kicks might be sweating too - the empire is about to fall - and we all know Doug and his legal flop can't get a job anywhere else. Well, that would require them to work - and that's not gonna happen.

It's also not good at all when our receivables are being factored. Yes, Arrow is factoring their receivables. Once that happens, it's simply a matter of time until door closing.

Typically when a company is running out of money, they end up witholding income tax and ss tax from the employees (in the name of the government) and then NOT forwarding it to the government. The IRS considers that a big enough problem to shut down and padlock. That has happened to a lot of companies.

Well, after looking at Doug's wife Jessica myspace page and all their nice trips - is this the end of the money train? Greece, Aspens, Miami, and so many other places. I bet the credit card spending is gonna come to a fast halt for her and her sister. Party is over girls - look for a new sugar daddy - yours is sinking fast. Could this be a "depression" for them. Sad, all the Arrow employees who got laid off, can't pay their bills all because others travel with the rich and famous. Instead of investing time and hardwork in the company you traveled, partied, have your own BOK booth - what did that set the company back - and donating Taylor Swift tickets to Holland Hall - wow. Now that was a nice gift. Chairity is a great thing - but that many tickets? Now take a look at all the Arrow employees who are having a hard time making it; drivers who are starving can't pay their rent; muchless a house payment. Disgusting. Talk about the Scrooge Family at Christmas - your family takes the cake. You have that award hands down.

It's pretty bad when you've got trucks in Arkansas That waited 2 day's for permits,then told to boot leg loads. Also when there is a truck at a shop and Arrow declines the shop to work on the truck, then can't even pay for the shop estimate. Need less to say the driver is treated like a mushroom.

They are going DOWN, just like a ball of fire. What comes around, goes around.
Dougie boy, you are getting back everything you gave!! I can't wait to see you and your boys go down for this.

All I can say is Arrow's sad to say that about a company that at one time was very resected as one of the best til DAD died.

My son works for Arrow. He has been a driver for many years. Has had his truck in the shop, then waited days for them to pay for the work so he could get back on the road. While he was waiting, he couldn't even get an advance so he could get a motel room, and they wouldn't pay for one. He is a professional driver, hard working, great with customers,has awards out the ying-yang,always on time,and is still afraid he will be without a job at the first of the year. His fuel card won't work half the time, can't get his pay on time, and when he does, it is always short. He did 2 short runs and got $650 before deductions (they get their money for sure!). He does a long haul heavy load from New york to california and still gets $650. He called as he was supposed to get a percentage of those loads, and was told that info is confidential. And they NEVER call back. He knows he is getting the shaft, but isn't a job hopper, and can't figure out what he can do about it. Things are getting worse, and seems to me that the main people are getting all they can at this point, and going to close the doors at the first of the year and leave everyone hanging. Can't the drivers get together and do a lawsuit? They get fees taken out of their paychecks every pay for an attorney...why can't they do that? Use the company attorney to sue the company..that would be a thorn in their sides. Anyone have any suggestions?

The company attorney has been bought, I thought everyone knew that! He's Dougie's buddy. He's one of those drinking a hefty paycheck and draining the small guy's pockets.
