My complaint is in regards to Mr Richard Meyers, president and owner of Over the Road Transportation Inc. out of Mississauga ON Mr Meyers in my opinion runs a very unprofessional and unsatisfactory trucking business.
I was an Owner Operator for this individual meaning I provided a service in return for payment. I worked for this individual for approximately 7 weeks in July, August and September 2009 and in that time period he bounced 2 out of 3 of my settlements, so needless to say it was time to move on. However Mr Meyers claims that I had to wait 90 days to get the rest of my settlements, when I requested them. So I waited, upon 90 days I sent his company a friendly reminder and proof of the services I provided and I when I would be expecting my payment. The latter part of December 2009, came and went and still no payment. I repeatedly tried to contact him and other individuals from his company and I was continuously ignored.
Finally he called and told me to stop calling his people and I told him to stop ignoring me and just pay me and I will go away. So he told me to come in on a particular date and he will have my payment, well he was not there and there was no payment and no one knew anything about it. I have taken many days of work to resolve this matter and he continuously plays these games.
In the 2nd week of January 2010 I got a hold of him via telephone and he tells me to come in and get my payment, another day off work.
I bring a friend just in case I have to endure more of his verbal abuse and he was not there, but, he has his new vice president Larry K__p, and he presents me with 2 post dated cheques I'm not impress because I feel he owes me more Mr Larry shuffles some paper and 3rd post date cheque appears now he wants me to sign some bogus wavier in regards to not contacting any one at the office about further funds, I refused to except them because I believe that those cheques will bounce as well, my friend request that the waiver be revised to say that I will no longer contact them as long as the cheques successfully clear. The first 2 cheques cleared and I sent the 3rd cheque to collections at the bank and they sat on it for about 5 weeks waiting for Mr Meyers to put funds in the account to clear the cheque and he never did, he put a stop payment on the cheque that was back in march 2010.
This is a very mild version of the crap I had to deal with, this is the version I sent to the BBB so I just copyed and pasted it. This is also my warning to hard working people looking for a trucking company to work for in Mississauga ON and the GTA. Move on you do not want to work for Richard Meyers the Owner of Over the Road Transportation Inc. and his other company On the Double Courier, he will rip you off and he and the rest of his company with treat you like crap.
You will find his ads in KIJIJI a couple times a month, he never lists the name of the company but watch out for the phone numbers, and he will use names to contact Larry, Alethea, Ron, right now he is using Larry's cel number so when you see the ad you never really know who the company is. They promise all kinds of crap but its bull shit, and then he will start bouncing your pay cheques and when you quit he will make you play the waiting game and you will spend months fighting for money that you may or may not get.
Good lucks folks
