Rumble Trucking- Best Employer

I have been Working for Rumble Trucking Since January of 2005. I admit their have been a few rough spots but I also have to admit that I and all other employees have been spoiled by this company. there have been a few times were I have just wanted to walk out but I know there is no other company out there that has a boss like we do. Julie Fagan has a lot of tough critics but if she wasn't who and how she is she would have been in a straight jacket from stress a long time ago or thrown to the wolves. Almost 5 years since I have been here and I do not regret it at all- Julie has given me so much experience and she has also given me a chance to grow up and be within a wonderful company- what can I say I love her to death. to all the people who post on here that Rumble trucking isn't a good or respectable company I wish you could have gotten to know her and this company like some of us have. I have nothing but Respect for Rumble Trucking and Mrs. Julie Fagan.

Hey McBane, I've been friends with Dan since we were kids. We used to play a lot of kickball back then.


McBane's been a long haul driver for years. While McBane's never personally met Julie, I've been real good buddies with Dan. Go get em' tiger!


She owed me money once i took it out in trade just once.. I would of rather had the


hey 250 a week, I hear ya on the job verification. I was afraid they may pull that c r a p,so what I did was not list them on my app.I filled in the hole with a trucker friend of mine who covered for me.

he said he was a owner operator and employed me as a driver.

Did I lie? Yes,but I got the job I wanted ..........


I drove for them two years ago... bad bad experience.

250 a week was my average pay check.... 3 days each week waiting for a load. Trying to make me run after the 14 hr rule etc. etc.

Now they will not verify my employment cuz I am a old rumble driver... now its harder to get a job~~


julie should go to *** for the way she treats her laid off driver who never got paid the last 2 pay chacks she owe lottttttsssssss of drivers money someone should put egg in her face not on mail box


There is a ton of negative press about Julie and her company, where there is smoke there is fire. Most of the negative press is true, bad company run by a bad owner.


you julie are rip off artist you never pay your drivers treat them like *** all the time


Do you still have a job now!!!!

Not my experience

I have worked for the company for 3 years and never had this issue - if I am out of hours, i'm out. The owner is the last one who would let the dispatchers run drivers out of hours. She is the one I go to if I have a problem with anything. Its always taken care of. If you were getting close to your 70, your dispatcher should have known it the day before or prior to that. Figuring out that you are out of your 70 in the middle of a run or the morning before a planned run puts everyone in a bad position.

Hey screwed over driver,.did you get your money? i cashed my sons check and a week later it bounced.!!! took money from my account...and i need it back.


Yeah so much for the apprecitation for the dedication of the drivers!!! lmao

I was screwed over for my last paycheck,but I refered the matter to my uncle- He will get my money it would be in their best interest


i hate julie she sucks


I would imagine so since I heard the merger only allowed the owner, two other staff and the owner operators to go ahead with the new merged company.


Were you one of the drivers that got a big surprise this past week? Rumble baled out on their drivers and merged with another trucking company. Did you lose your job?

How many of you Rumble drivers got screwed out of their pay or reimbursements this past week?

Rumble Trucking; Everything they tell truck drivers is a lie

When I first hired on with Rumble Trucking I was asked whether I wanted to be home every 7 days for 3 days off or every 10 days for 4 days off. I chose every 7 days with 3 days off. On my second day on the job as a truck driver for them I was notified that they were'nt letting drivers go home every 7 days anymore. On my 10th day out I was told I'd be out for 2 more days before they'd get me home. What happened to the 10 days out? My second time home I was only home for 2 days and asked if I was ready to come back to work they had a load for me. What happened to the 4 days at home? The final straw for me was after telling my dispatcher that I was completely out of hours she assigned another load to me. Then the owner of the company came on the line and ordered me to haul the load. She said there was no way I was out of hours. I was at 70 hours in 5 days. I legally had to take 10 hours off. There were no apologies given.

Well said "Human Resources". I've been with Julie for over a year, I have 2 trucks leased to her and will be putting on a 3rd.

Julie is awesome to work for. She has bent over backwards for me and resolved any issues I've had(which have been very few) I've been driving for over 16 years and have seen the industry being taken over by a buch of whining pansies. Can't truck for more than 7 days?

Go work at Mc'Donalds. :grin


Not one of you has a clue about what the economy was like or the customre bankruptcies that hurt the company beyond repair. Everyone i dealt with there did everything possible to survive the economic downturn and worked long hours to do it. My dealings with the safety people were not anything like described.


That *** Julie still owe's me about $1500 from a year ago. She gave me one check for $500 and it bounced !

Tried to file charges for writing bad checks and the Sanilac County prosecuter wouldn't go after her because she use to work for him. BULLS@!% !!!


First of all, Human resources. My dear, you know exactly what goes on inside those beautiful expensive brick walls and one sided mirrored office of Ms.

Fagan. Don't you let on that the drivers are at fault for breaking the law! They needed a *** job! Ms.

Fagan is a crook and cheats her employees AND government of thousands of dollars at the tax payers expense!

Just look what she did to her best friend behind her back while she was on medical leave. She's a straight forward, down right dirty *** and everyone in the Thumb knows it so how do you like that one!


im suprised tom sold the company to julie


Rumble is a JOKE!! Low rates, The dumbest dispatchers I have ever seen, they wanted me to run over hours,over weight, and the last straw was theay wanted me to pull an over size with no permits.

after all that they screwed me out of over $1300.

Julie is the biggest B*%#! in trucking today!!


what about the deadhead pay giong from .30cents a mile to .15 cents a mile???? WHO STOLE THAT MONEY JULIE????


LOL I did notice you didn't address the issues of leaving the scene, registration, plates, proof of insurance. Maybe we should mention under insured loads...?

Drivers pushed past hours and told to pick up pages from an office employee saying he team drove. Whooo hooo! Wanna talk about health isurance that was jacked up in the middle of the term?

Those who know are not surprised Rumble went under and had to sell off to Echo, those who know the ORIGINAL owner ARE surprised by how badly it was stuck to the employees. Hope those loyal and dedicated employeees eventually get their pay checks cashed.


First of all- if you want to make money we all know for a truck driver you need to be out for more then 7 days...come on (but yet every driver still called and asked how come my paycheck is so little- because you are lazy....)

Second of all Rumble trucking was NOT paying drivers out of "Fagan trucking" Rumble trucking is a DBA for Fagan investements LLC- figure that one out!

If you can't handle being on the road then don't renew your CDL and save it for the people who know how to do their job and what it takes.


Things haven't changed. As a matter of fact they have gotten worse.

Drivers told not to report accident (true only victim was a deer), drivers told to stay onroad without registration, plates, proof of insurance and what not. When registration was faxed Driver was listed on proof of registration.

Now I hear that some Rumble drivers are being paid through Fagan Trucking...huh? Whats with that?

Rumble Trucking

I'd run completely out of hours and my dispatcher put another load on me. I'd been advising her all day that I was running out of hours. When I explained again that I couldn't haul it she put the owner of the company on the line who immediately started screaming at me that I couldn't be out of hours and that I would haul the load. Even after she understood that I was up to 70 hours she never apologized. I was legally in the right and for her not to at least apologize was very unprofessional on her part. I won't work for people like this.
