are you an owner operator, or work for an owner operator hauling for this company, ask around other drivers to be sure you are not being SCREWED by this company on your wages.They bid cheaper than the route can be run and then screw the driver or owner operator to make a profit.If you are in doubt about the wages you are supposed to be receiving, contact the department of labor.If you are an owner operator and making less than $1.10 , YOU ARE BEING SCREWED.If your working for an owner operator and in this business you are subject to be making up to $10 per hour more than your making now.There are standards that must be met.Don't fall for the story.

I worked for this company a month or so.They called me to go from atlanta to memphis and pick up a load back to atlanta.When I got to memphis, the load was already cancelled.NOT ONLY DID MCCORMICK TRUCKING COMPANY NOT PAY ME THE TRIP, they wanted me to reimburse them for 140 gallons of diesel I burned going there and back.SCUM COMPANY.They kept my last check.

I have tried to contact the today show regarding this.. this company she was driving for is know for there practices of unsafe equipment.. believe me I know .. I quit with them in March 08 and that was one of the reasons. It is with Tracie McCormick inc.. I am desperately trying to get them to contact me for more info.. I cannot believe a person with this many years experience lost control on rain.. without contributing factors of bad tires on the trailer .. this is not their first or last fatality within the company.. here is another link.. this driver crashed twice while driving for them.. here is my letter and a few news links all pertaining to this company... they need stopped.. before more people lose their lives.. Please take into consideration to talking to me... about the company that was

involved with this sad loss… Tracie McCormick Inc.. enclosed is a copy of my court brief in which I have been fighting the State of Pa.. since May, for benefits.. this company has bad practices of Unsafe equipment.. and a very high (92 of 100) Dot rating.. 100 being BAD..

the main reason I quit working for them..

I have a hard time believing Ms. Baird lost control with the amount of experience in which

she holds to have lost control simply on rain... From my experience of working for this company for approx. 3 years.. I will almost guarantee the trailer had bald tires..and the truck and trl. combination was not safe.. this contributing to her accident..

I am asking you desperately to contact me.. to get more info.. this company needs to

be brought down.. I have 3 years of documented records that I am willing to turn over to you that show they allowed me to work 72 – 86 hours per week..(allowed by the rules of the DOT only 70) and falsified log books.. that the company was well aware of … and paid me for all the hours I actually worked..

This company has had a lot of DOT violations and fines.. and does not stop their unlawful

practices.... HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE HAVE TO LOSE THEIR LIVES..

Please Help me .. stop them.. and help me make the state recognize that

this country needs more drivers to stand up and say NO.. I’m not going

to break the law anymore..

I have involved our local news WPXI channel 11 .. link below..

well the only way i could keep my job was to purchase a truck from them sight unseen! had problems from day one. spent 5,000.00 before i got my first paycheck. truck was due to leave out 7/6/10. got a phone call that afternoon, i was fired. gave me 30 days to pay the truck off or send it back. cant get a loan with no job. now they are saying i will not get my advance on the 15th and no telling if i will get ANY money due to me. oh and the way they log it is lie saying another driver is with them and they drop them off to get in another truck. i know for a fact one man uses his sons name and he isnt even in the truck.

For those of you who wonder why someone in Texas cares it is because I have a brother who drives for these creeps and I don't want to go to his funeral. I am also very curious about the "Fringe" deductions and why they are not broken out as to what they are specifically for. It sounds like McCormick is low balling the bids and then making it up by stealing from the employees. Only you guys can make the complaints and fix this. God Bless!

yes, they are a cut throat bunch.They bid the routes cheaper than they can be run and then screw the driver to make up the difference.They have had alot of wrecks and a few deaths behind the wheel of their trucks.The latest I am aware of is a driver went to sleep at the wheel in louisiana running atlanta to houston fast as he could turn it.These clowns have trucks running atlanta to memphis every day and logging it from the alabama line instead of atlanta.approx 20 hours streight and 3 hours sleep, and up and gone again.
