I worked at K&B Transportation full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Company will let you run a lot of miles.

Cons

This is the worst trucking company, they will find way to not pay you,and the company treats their drivers like they own them.

Advice to Management

Your drivers are people, you do not own them.

    Pros

    Friendly recruiter. Some drivers got new mattresses in their trucks, but others did not get new, and suffered bed bug bites. November 2012 Trucks were swept-out clean, but smelling of pet, urine, and foot fungus odors. Direct Deposit is offered, but Friday payroll is not paid to the driver until Monday. First paycheck, K&B takes $35 out of your paycheck to pay for your drug test, which the recruiters did not tell us about.
    Stop interrupting drivers 8-10 hour DOT breaks with work-related activities. Allow drivers to get rest during legally mandated breaks instead of interrupting them, and waking them up constantly, denying them sleep, and then expecting them to drive all night long, after you kept them up all day long, and then repeat the next day, over and over again. Most K&B drivers were complaining of not getting enough sleep, and being forced by dispatch to drive all night tired and sleepy. If you do get home, there is no $1125 guarantee that week because you went home that week, and no guarantee the next week either, if your home time crosses over into the next payweek.

    Cons

    If you are late making a delivery, even when it was the company's fault, you will not be paid the guarantee. For this reason, drivers are getting 300-700-500-700-365 dollar paychecks, way short of the $1,125 lie. Nobody can understand K&B's paystubs either. You know your paycheck is way short of what you drove, but the pages and pages of numbers are intended to be confusing so that you cannot figure out where the money is missing. Payroll does not talk to drivers, and will not explain why your payroll is short. Payroll department is sheltered by the dispatchers who answer your questions, and will not transfer you to payroll, even though the dispatcher cannot answer your questions. It is a scam. It is pretty clear that K&B is defrauding its drivers.
    The 0.45 they say they pay per mile is actually only 0.41 per mile taxed, and another 0.04 per mile they pay per diem untaxed, again, the recruiters did not tell us that over the phone before getting there.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of drivers, maybe half, were not paid the $400 Sign-On Bonus in the first paycheck they were promised by the recruiter, and many drivers were also not paid the $500 SOB that was supposed to paid on the 2nd paycheck. 2nd Day Orientation no breakfast that morning at the hotel, contrary to what was promised, because of made up excuse that they were behind on paperwork and had to start early- it's BS, they are saving money with the Hotel. Some rooms in the Days Inn had bed bugs and drivers were bitten all over.

    Stop depending on Recaps. Use 34 resets. Stop forcing 8-hr split sleeper berths. Let driver choose rest times and locations based on his bodily needs. Let drivers perform minimal edits of their logs. Stop Falsifying the Driver's Logs and then expect us to certify your illegal edits. Stop insisting on no deviations from company planned routes, which are many times, stupid, time consuming, and take longer, and are less safe. Stop putting the new drivers and others on 1200 mile loads, like from Clute, TX to Denver, CO

    Two drivers from my Orientation ended up with deaths in their families. Stop lying to drivers about getting them home in a couple of days, and instead dragging your feet and intentionally dispatching them further from their homes and families because you have loads that need done and you don't want them to go home ever. Recruiters stop lying about getting drivers home when they need to, it is not happening.
