Hey Jason levin why don’t you keep your *** view to yourself. The guy had a point.

Just because YOU don’t agree with it doesn’t make it invalid. That’s his opinion and you have no right to call him on his opinion.

Nor do you have any right to contact his boss about what he believes. Maybe you should keep your race baiting to a minimum.

*** you. Calling out racism isn’t race baiting and hiding behind anonymous user name just shows you are as racist.

West Side Transport Work Experience Review

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Are you serious? Some* dms are good and sometimes* they are professional. West Side is like most of the other companies out there. If you don't kiss their butts and do everything they say, no matter how bad it hurts you and your family, they treat you like ***. And 900 miles for an entire week? Sending otr drivers on day cab runs? Here's an sample of being a west side driver.. sent to Dickson TN to drop and hook, no empties... so sent me an hour to Nashville yard to get one... but didn't verify there was empties. (this has happened 4 times in the past, no empty when sent to yard) So I get there, no empty. Of course. I get on qc to let them know. My dm says, oh another driver got last one just b4 you got there. why were two drivers both sent for the last trailer? Planning is horrible. Next, they tell me shut down and next day go back to Dickson to get empty. I do. That's 3- 45 min trips, for one empty. Wasting fuel must not be an issue. I'm due hometime just after this, I live in east TN. I'm in Nashville, due hometime the next day (they were told 2 weeks prior what day I was taking ht). I'm less than 3 hours from my home. Then I get a preplan that says I have to go to AL, pick up a load and drive it to MO, then pick up one going to GA and i can take hometime after that. I wasnt happy. But i drive 125 miles to AL to get the load. At arrival, i am told that there is no load to pick up bcuz it was supposed to pick up a week earlier. My DM sent me 125 miles for a load that was no longer available. Poor planning, never even verified load. I send qc message. Told them I was asked to leave, due to no load, please advise. I got no reply for almost 3 hours. I had went to closest truck stop, was full. So I sent qc messages to ask where, or what direction they wanted me to go. Bcuz doing stuff without permission, they take ur pay guarantee. After hours of no reply, I made the choice to find the closest truck stop in any direction. When I get to that pilot, and doing post trip, finally get a message saying "sorry, we are busy, find a safe place and shut dwn". I'm sorry but your job is to answer those messages and 2-3 hours is more than being busy. It's rude, inconsiderate and laziness. I shut down, now 81 miles from home, with hometime due the next day. The next day, I send message early about 8am, asking about a load. It's 10am before dm says "I'm working on it". They end up sending me the 81 miles home, empty. Saying they will have a load for me Monday morning at 8am, be ready to go. I was ready, but No load until Tuesday afternoon. DM Said HAD TO be picked up by 12 noon Tuesday. I get there 10 min to 12. Shipper says load is not scheduled to be picked up until 3pm. Really? So I sit 3 more hours and wait. Then payday comes, I expect that $1,100 guarantee, the recruiter will tell you 5 days on duty you get it. Every week. Allows for home time. TRUTH IS in Jan 2016, they changed it to 7 days for anyone that's not a "new hire". Meaning if you take hometime to be with your family, the company punishes you by NOT PAYING YOU. Figure 900 miles that week at .38, take out taxes, divide that by a family of 7 that does not get ANY welfare and see why that's bs. So bcuz I go home to see my FAMILY I lose my pay guarantee. So ur looking at $342 BEFORE tax, for a WEEK of otr driving. Fast food places pay more and your home every night!! So you ppl saying that family matters to West Side, what a joke. They punish you if you go home. That's the truth. And yes I have PHOTO PROOF OF QC MESSAGES TO PROVE EVERYTHING I'VE SAID HERE TODAY. You drivers saying West Side is a "great" place to work, 10 to 1, you don't take hometime, you do anything they say no matter if it's wrong or unsafe, or if it gets you home late. Maybe you don't have families. Or just bcuz someone in ur family is in the hospital, they let you go home, you think that's awesome. Truth is, that's not doing you a favor or being *nice* it's not even caring about you and your family. It's keeping a driver in a industry hurting for LONG TERM drivers and keeping WS from getting sued for firing you for going home for a medical emergency. If West Side CARED about anyone other than West Side, DRIVERS WOULD NOT BE PUNISHED FOR TAKING HOMETIME!!!!!! Maybe there are a few ppl treated in a way that they are supposed to be treated. But don't expect the same treatment as their few "pet" drivers. I do my job. I'm not lazy. I am clean, respectful, kind, do what I'm told and I try to never complain or "make waves". I try to do my job in a very professional way. I am respectful to other drivers, with my company and others. I have no accidents/no tickets/no record/no criminal or misdemeanors of any kind. A perfect CSA score. I am a safety minded driver. I am a good employee with a family I need to provide for. I'm willing to work and do what my employer needs of me. That said, I expect to be treated with respect, honesty and fairness and while you may not care a bit for my family WS, understand that I do. A driver should not be PUNISHED for seeing their families. Changing a pay guarantee from 5 days on duty to a required 7, is a sure way to show your drivers what you really care about. Sure isn't them or their families. Any driver that wants to defend it, go ahead. Please explain how this shows a "good" company? Also got QC message stating they can take guarantee for "poor use of time". Anything you do that they can claim "poor use of time/hours" they can take ur check. It's a loop hole. Meaning if you get low miles, they will find some way, not to pay you that guarantee. maybe ur 30 min break was 45 bcuz you were sick.. they take pay. To bad. They dont care. Not saying they would but they CAN. Also, oversleep? More than 10 hour break? Can take guarantee for that too. The truth... They guarantee to pay you what they feel like paying. You can't count on it, and you can't depend on it..Bcuz they have about a million reasons, that they can take it....so how is it a guarantee? I just want to do a great job for my company, see my family 52 days a year, and get my $1,100 pay guarantee EVERY week, even if i see my family. Thats all Im asking. Between poor planning, dms that think they are better than you, 2-3 hour wait on QC replies, late hometimes, sitting when you should be moving, running back and forth for empties bcuz they can't verify one, going to pick up loads that are no longer available, and that joke of a pay guarantee they can take for any reason including seeing your family, what is it that makes West Side such a good company to you? We see our families 52 days a year... why take our pay for that? You get over 300 days... they only get 52. Thank you.

The Truck driver

2000 plus miles/week, starting pay does match experience, dispatch works hard to be professional and as with any company there are issues that are resolved fairly quickly...overall this is a great starting point for lessor experienced drivers and has a newer tractor fleet. If you have questions give them a call and please say kirk referred you, thanks ;) Good Pay and equipment along great people to work with.... I would highly recommend this company to and new or experienced truck driver they respect your wishes and try their hardest to listen to you wishes and make them come true 5 stars to west side transport

THIS IS ALSO TRUE!! TURN OFF YOUR PHONE!! This driver is NOT lying.

If it's not thru the Qualcomm in plain print, do NOT do it!! They call my husband's phone too!! If they wanna be sneaky, they WILL call. Bcuz a call is not proof that THEY TOLD YOU TO!!

So when YOU get in trouble, they can say WE NEVER TOLD YOU THAT! WHERE IS UR PROOF? When you say "you told me on the phone", your word against theirs driver and guess who gets the blame? YOU.

They will lie right to ur face. Cover ur own, turn off your phone, force use of Qualcomm for instructions. And just a little fyi, West Side is not the only one, or the worse one for this...lot of them hit ur phone when they wanna make sure if any problems come up, ur the one that catches the blame.

Qualcomm is the ONLY proof you have. So thank God for it and turn off ur phones.

Drivers beware !

after signing on with this company as a company regional driver. tim whitney ( safety director ) tried to create a false criminal backround about me even after i gave proof that i had a clean history. After complaining to other managers i was given dispatches to garbage dumps and short trips. Also beware that this company will force you to pick up people @ truck stops against your will. there is no one who will take your side no matter how good your mvr / skills are ! its their way or the highway. Driver mgrs. will also lie to you about home time. If you choose to ignore all this ? i wish you the best of luck

100% agree with the negative reviews here. West Side likes to put on a pretty face, but watch your back when you turn around.

That knife might be hard to pull out.

ACTUAL LIVE CHAT

West Side Recruiter

Jan 20 2016

Please wait. An operator will be with you shortly.

Josie says: My name is Josie how can I help you? I say: Hello...

one of your recruiters was telling me about your pay guarantee the other day and I had another question. He said one of the five requirements was that you have to be availiable for dispatch 5 days in a pay period to qualify..... but I was recently told by one of your drivers, that after you get hired, I think after 3 months he said, than the five day requirement changes to a 7 day requirement. And that if drivers take hometime, they don't get the pay guarantee.

So I just wanted to know if that was a lie, or if West Side Transport punishes drivers for taking hometime, by not honoring the pay guarantee on hometime weeks for drivers who stay with the company. Thank you for clearing this up for me... Josie says: The driver you spoke with was not correct. We have no such 7 day rule.

I say: Ok. So it is 5 days regardless of how long you work for west side? Josie says:   This is correct. I say:   I appreciate you clearing this up.

Josie says:   No problem! I say:   It seemed strange when he said it goes to 7 days after 3 months. Josie says:   That is very odd. I say:   If I have further questions I will contact you.

Thank you very much. Josie says:   You are very welcome! Have a great day! WEST SIDE QUALCOMM -message to all drivers- Jan 6, 2016 Message on Qualcomm.

Jan 6th. Informs drivers that pay guarantee requires on duty, available for dispatch, 7 days in a pay period of 7 days to get a pay guarantee. Jan 6 Qualcomm tells drivers 7 days or no pay!! Jan 20 recruiters still telling ppl that rule does not exist!!

Get you in the door, happy with pay, 3 months later, you take hometime (like you have been all along) and you don't get paid!! What a way to rip ppl off.

And straight out lies are the foundation of your employment so apply at ur own risk. This is just ONE example.
