Complaint / review / scam report
Doug Coleman Trucking Ltd
Company Misleads and Ripsoff Employees Ripoff

This letter is for anyone that is new or a veteran to the trucking industry and thinking about applying for a driving job at Doug Coleman Trucking Ltd. Do Not Do It!! This will be the biggest mistake you could make in your career.

During your interview you are told that you will be making $17 an hour with driving experience and $16 for new drivers. What they dont tell you is that most of the runs are Rate Bids. Example: Say you do a run and you get paid the $17 an hour, the rate pay for that is calculated at $102. Now figure that run takes you 8-9 hours to do, lets figure that out....Your getting paid for 6 hours of work and anything over and above that is FREE. Do you want to work for Free??? because of you do then work for this company.

The hand book they give to every driver, is only working towards the company not the driver. Coleman believes the customer is more important that the health, safety and welfare of their drivers. Example: If the Temperature is 90-100 plus which it has been this summer alone, or during winter time below freezing, you are not allowed to idle the truck to stay cool or warm depending on weather conditions. The companies that you pick up and or deliver to say they wont load or unload trucks with trucks that are idling, when you tell coleman about this they do not help the drivers at all. They say they work with what customers want and if you want to work here then you have to follow what the customer wants as well. So final word Drivers are NOT important to Doug Coleman Trucking. They have told many drivers that, drivers are a dime a dozen. If you start stating facts about the company to them they will and have many times to drivers terminate you. Especially if you have complaints or concerns about your health.

SO in closing the only person that Doug Coleman and his staff are concerned about is themselves and the companies that they pick up and deliver to...Their Safety Person will not help out at all even though it is HER job to make sure anything that has to do with safety is addressed.

Doug Coleman Trucking Limited uses drivers and tosses them away like yesterdays trash with no care or concern for the drivers or their Families!!
