Drivers Beware of Hurricane Express
Posted: Wed Apr 4, 2007 12:28:39 AM

Have you or anyone you know ever worked for this company out of Springdale AR? They tell you what you want to hear so you will come to work. I found out the hard way, You lease there truck @ 95.00 a day and run coast to coast they make it sound legit. But the way they set the loads up it takes you a week to get one wayand you dont get paid until you have completed one whole round( being coast to coast and back). I made $89.00 the whole mo of feb. I am a produce Hauler theres freight in west coast going to midwest every day all day! Be very aware of this company. I am currently filling a claim with labor board and a claim with the IRS. If any one has any Information about this company Please leave a reply! The more that file the greater the chance of getting them stopped! Thank you

Thats what caught my attention too....but they dont tell you that you have to run the coast  to coast literally.. cali to maine. but it will never pay more than $4500.00 they have winter rates. You will also never complete 1 round with in 1 week. Pay is only upon completion of round! Just a real shady  bunch!!!

I was interested at one time, my wife and i were looking to get on with them, but if they are messing people over on pay and miles then no thanks, i think companies like that should be forced out of buisness, just my thoughts.

I was leased on with Hurricane Express in 2006 and 2007. I ran Cali to MA every week non stop. It started great. When truck was getting paid off they screw you. I had a friend you paid his truck off, the only one ever to pay a truck off, that was in 2007 and he has yet to get the title for it!! Stay away from them. I recruited a lot of drivers there. As soon as I realized what really was going on I called them all and apologized!! And they don't even own the trucks, they are all leased from Peterbuilt!! That's why you will never own it!! Think and search before you sign on.

I worked for this company for 2 1/2 months and i have ran 34.721 miles for this company my checks are nothing and they rip u off...if u pay off  ur truck u will never see the title bc they are leased from peterbilt and peterbilt still owns the trucks this company never has time to talk to u and u never get to talk about ur check..here is a example i ran 4339.58 worth of products after everything is done my check is only going to be 279.83 this is some bullshit i run my ass off for this company they never give u the rate conformation. They never give u any of the fuel surcharge, no extra money for stop pay. This company is a rip off and someone needs to shut them down this company will take ur money and u will never see any of it. my second check was 1500.00 and then after that my checks were less then 400.00 dollars this is some fuck up shit..last week my truck grossed over 8,000.00 dollars and my check was only 390.00...so if u want to get screwed by someone go and work for Hurricane Express..but i suggest u try and go to a different company.If u just want to drive they have the miles but NO MONEY!!!!!
