The Olive Branch Total terminl is screwing drivers over big time! Also you might want to look how high their CSA SCORE is before going to work for them! You are off from home not getting any miles their trailers are the worn outest most rag dolls in the industry worn to a bloody nub hy other companies before Total gets them some have no registrations no tags. brakes and every thing on them worn out subject to you being put out of dservice and points on your record 85 to 90% redlights on prepass qt all scales because of their terrible safety record. and out of service record during past inspections. Theres a bad bad shortage of empty trailers if you lucky enough to get a drop n hook . Nobody in dispatch EVER answers the phone either it could be a die or emergency with nobody to answer your calls. Drivers are not getting any miles either you be very lucky if you get 1500 miles a week most all short hauls and dont even think about going to work out of olive branch ms Shannon is never available to address driver issues. This company. has went to Hell in a handbasket dont believe me ask other drivers and former drivers before you waste your time.
I know you are right

Work for them Professional drivers and customers are getting fed up with the poor management they loosing all their good drivers and lots of customers. Lots of customers are dropping them due to their awful safety record no empty trailers for them to load. and the ones that are there are junk. Customers are being lost left and right because 98% of the time they never ever can make pick up or delivery on schedule due to driver and trailer shortages or cant find an empty to pick. up a load customers and drivers are fed up if things dont change they are soon to lose several more major accountd too drivers zre leaving left and right. They simply cannot make a living and feed their familys away from home the way they are being done and it costs way too much to live on the road and too many companies need dtivers to deal with this. ask around or find out for yourself I know first hand drivers why waste your time with Total.

Yes they SUCK CANT MAKE A LIVING THERE and the only thing keeping them afloat is US Express backing them . I would say ask other drivers before considering employment with this POS of a company they definitely need to make some changes especially at Olive Branch Shannon and Brian are a joke trying to resolve things its a family affair you are spinning your wheels driver

Driver hotline what a fu@king joke they got Brian over that this is the kicker his wife is the terminal manager!! WHAT A DAMN JOKE THIS IS! HE IS ALWAYS AGAINST THE DRIVER TO COVER UP FOR ALL THE SH*T MGMT IS DOING TO SCREW DRIVERS OVER! Ask yourself a question would justice be done if a womans husband was the judge in her trial without a juryit would always be aone sided ! They need a outside independant party to hear and address driver complaints or they are going to continually lose drivers and top management will never know the real truth just the dirty picture Brian is painting of the drivers to cover up for Shannon and the other klan members in the ring running off good qualified drivers that is the heartthrob and backbone of company survival and they are running drivers off left and right! Dont waste your time professional drivers upper management dont give a damn what the klan ring is doing to run off drivers. Complaints need to be heard by a outside party not a familt member thats going to cover up and twist the story to suit himself. THINK ABOUT IT !!

They are bussing them drivers in by the droves every week the people in orientation are great and work really hard to bring the new drivers aboard with Total. ITS SAD all their hard eork and effortsare shot down by terminals with a family ring like you said they need a outsider not maried to the terminal manager thats unfair he has a conflict of interest and only lrts his superiors hear what he wants them to not the real truththe people in Jackson never returns a drivers call for helpThey will never retain drivers until John goes up and cleans house breaks up the family ring who is always against the driver which iswhat keeps them in business I wouldnt recommend Total to any truck driver you wont make a living there for damn sure. They are about washed up drivers and customers both are fed up with Total

Why have they got Brian Lovett over the driver horline??? That is unfair to the drivers that recruiters work so hard to bring in and the company spends lots of money to recruit he is always against the drivers welfare he has a major conflict of interest by his wife being the terminal manager . He is costing this company drivers faster than they can be replaced. IF JOHN STOMPS ONLY KNEW THE REAL TRUTH . HE WILL NEVER EVER KNOW THE TRUTH AS LONG AS BRIAN AND SHANNON ARE IN THEIR POSITIONS AT OLIVE BRANCH MS TERMINAL NO NEED TO WASTE YOUR TIME HERE UNTIL JOHN STOMPS CLEANS HOUSE AND HIRES QUALIFIED MANAGEMENT AND GETS A NEUTRAL PARTY TO HEAR DRIVER ISSUES NOT A HUSBAND COVERING UP FOR HIS WIFE!! THINK ABOUT IT!!

Well I was broken down in the freezing cold weather with Total over 1100 miles from home not making a dime it cost me to live every day though these pieces of shit for management never even offered to put me in a motel either!! Got the truck out of shop the dash was still lit up like a Christmas tree with check engine problems none of the problems was evrer resolved all that time at their shop what a fu@king joke for a shop. Their trucks are the slowest in the trucking ibdustry. They have a few buddy buddy ass kissers that gets akl the cream and gravy and their trucks will pass the others like they are sitting on block and go out of sight. This companys management sucks dont think about working here drivers I can assure you all the bad stuff in the other posts are true and are mild compared to the way this company really is.. Dont take my word just go ahead and go to work for them and you can see first hand

All the comments are the truth made about this company and they are never going to keep drivers at the rate they are going.. Drivers if you are thinking of working for Total stay at home and flip burgers at McDonalds you will make more a week there than you will a month at Total and thats a fu@king fact !!!
U R So so Right
