My teamate's old teamate had got a flat tire..Covenant said it was a reportable accident. Since he called it in,,They charged him with a accident,..$1100.00 safety bonus,,plus $500.00 charge for a $275.00 tire,... $25.00 a week out of his pay.. From experience with covenant they are theives and liers I wouldnt recomend no-one to work for them ,..unless you can live on spare change every week

These facts are true. Covenant will do anything in their power to have the driver charged with a preventable. By doing this Covenant will charge the driver $275 + for a new tire, and it will stop the driver from getting a safety bonus. Covenant also has frequent pay cuts. Another way Covenant saves money is charge drivers for excessive idle time. If a truck is down (solo or team) it can only idle for a couple (maybe 4 - 5) hours per day. If a truck goes over that amount of time, the driver(s) is/are charged for each hour over the allotted idle time. Ask yourself - do you want to work for a company that cares that little about drivers? If you owned a company would you make a driver or team sit for 2 days without a load, or under a load that they could not deliver for 24 - 48 hours but make them sit in 25 deg. weather or in 113 deg. weather in California for even 1/2 day much less 2 days?
