(DOT)needs to come in and shut this company down.they have drivers running runs illegally. they have alot of trucks that wont pass (DOT) inspection.they ask the drivers can you run this load after they know you have been driving all day.they are a really unsafe company and there should be someone investigate this company.

I worked for this company off and on for the past 10 yrs,yes i ran my ass off fix my logs,ran without tags and just about everything thats eleagal ive done for mike martin the proud owner of songbird enterprise inc.this company needs to be shut down and the owner needs to be put in putman co jail,he took health insurence money out of my check every week but guess what I didnt have insurence.I hurt my back in april of 2009 I started seeing doctors for mri,x-rays, im getting all these bills coming in and no way of paying them.the hospitals are going to sue me and not mike martain.and I called him about the bills and all he could say is times are hard.he dont have to tell me times are hard.ive been off work sence sept.2009 the doctors put me off the road Im having to take five shots of insulin a day.I wish mike martin had to poke himself with a needle,my opinon of songbird they need to shut it down and take mikes big cabin in gattlinburg and sell it.mike martin is a s.o.b

My dad works for them and YES they do very ill. things. They run them when they are not suppose to be on the road they just have them fix their log books so if they get checked they look right. They give them loads that are way over the limit. My dad just got a ticket over 300 dollars. They took their insurance completely away now. It's insane! I cannot say much though. The bills actually get paid.

I work for Songbird and I'm happy to have a job. Yes there are a few things that need fixing here like paying child support that is taken from drivers pay (any other use is stealing), but all in all Songbird is no different from any other trucking company in the process of going out of business. If drivers works beyond his or her allowed time it's their decision and they are libel not Songbird, when a driver signs his log he is Certifying that his log is valid and true, Songbird may get into trouble, but in the end the driver will be held accountable. My suggestion is to say no!

Ok "bossman" you really want to go to work and not get paid? Do you want to recieve a check that you are not able to deposit or cash for 3 weeks or longer? Do you want to quit and still not recieve any of your last 3 checks? Do you want to run loads and not get paid for half of them? Answer that. If you said yes to any of them then, YES that is the job you need! If you said no then you have what most people call sense! Most of the truckers employeed by this company has this happening to them. You try loosing your home over this and she how happy you are. I can say this because I seen it happen. My mother has 2 checks that she can't even deposit or cash because they are no good. That is a federal crime to write a payroll check that you are not able to cash or deposit. So that right there boys and girls should be why the FBI should be looking into a company. I know this company is doing several illegal things that should be looked into.But why are you writing on here write to your governor and write into the Labor & Workforce Board. That will help get them shut down. I believe if you can not pay your employees then either quit running them so much that you are not able to pay them or let some go so that you can pay the ones you do have. Sorry I know no one needs to be laid off or fired but that seems like common sense to me!
